Great place to stay. Grounds are absolutely beautiful. Unit 3 should be designated as studio only as very tiny being stuck in corner. Owner was very helpful and willing to go the xtra to make your stay pleasurable. Would differently stay sgsin and recommend to family and friends.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled with family

We arrived at this motel around 3pm after having cycled 60km as part of an organised cycle trip. We were told by the motelier that we were far too early and that our room wasn't ready because they weren't expecting us at that time. He also went on to add (insult to injury) that he left the cyclists rooms til last because he didn't expect to see us so soon.
I guess that set the tone for the rest of the stay (only one night). I thought it unusual that they would leave cyclists rooms til last given that most would be hot and tired and wanting to access their room immediately as opposed to someone who had driven in a car and perhaps more inclined to wait.
Everything else about the motel was great. The kitchen was fully equipped which we liked because we wanted to cook our own dinner. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast selection had plenty of variety.

Room Tip: I would avoid room 3 (which we were in) or any of the rooms that face Gloucester Street. Room 3 had...

Staying at a motel can be underwhelming but Colonial Lodge is something exceptional.

The difference is in the hosts and how they treat you. Mark and Sarah are some of the finest hosts any family could want when on holiday.

They went above and beyond to make our stay something to remember.

The facilities at Colonial Lodge were also top class as well, both modern and very comfortable. The kids loved the swimming pool and the trampoline.

If you are planning a trip to Napier then don't go past these guys!!

Thanks again for a fabulous stay!

Thanks to Mark and staff our trip was a very enjoyable one. Clean, neat, tidy rooms, with EVERYTHING you need (and kids need) for an awesome stay, facilities were immaculate, in an easy to find location. When I next travel to NZ I will be staying here again for sure. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and felt welcomed and looked after from the minute we arrived to our departure.

Once again thank you Mark and we will see you again in the near future!

Slightly out from central Napier, about 7 miles. We had a few problems finding the place initially, Gloucester Road is the extension of Kennedy Road the main route into Napier. This is an excellent motel with very good facilities that far exceed it's motel name. There is a swimming pool, hot tub and games room ideal if you have young children. The rooms are large and well equipped with a functional kitchen area. Our room was clean and modern and surprising quiet. There is a large supermarket just a few minutes away. The owners are very helpful. Napier is a beautiful city and well worth a visit and take advantage of a wine tour whilst you are staying.

Perfect 5 night stay for pleasure and attending family wedding.
The hotel / lodge team were exceptionally friendly, nothing was too much trouble and not only did the team work their daily cleaning workload around the frenzy of our wedding arrangements, meetings, photos etc. they were full of knowledgable local advice. An exceptional team, thank you again.
The rooms were modern, spotless, immaculately clean and fully serviced daily.
The large modern spa was well used to release the pressures of wedding stress and the exceptionally clean swimming pool provided much entertainment for the younger members.
A quiet location, ideal for all. I would stay there again.
