“Very handy to CBD and beach”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

Stayed for 1 night, owners very welcoming on arrival as we were the last guest to arrive (late), explained where the eating places were and how to get to the supemarket. Rooms were very clean and all amenities included. The motel is in walking distant to the CBD and beach as well as walking distant for my meeting. Would reccommend this motel to others.

Room Tip: Very handy to CBD and beach within walking distant, owners were very nice on arrival, explained wher...

We did not make a booking but needed a place to stay ASAP! We stayed for one night. The hosts were so warm & welcoming. The rooms are clean & cosy. All enmenities included at a great price during peak season. This motel is very close to the city centre. Will definately recommend this motel.

We stayed here for the first night of our seven day road trip and although initially found the price a little high, have since compared it to higher and realised how good this little motel is. We arrived late in the evening and were checked in by a very helpful gentleman on the front desk. He was very welcoming and offered several choices of places to eat.

The room was clean, well presented and warm. Although it was small it had everything you could want and a great little bathroom. We were in a studio room that I could almost touch the edges of, so if you're looking for space, book a larger one.

The motel's position is great and very easy to walk in to town from. The onsite parking is ample. On the whole this is a great place to stay and somewhere I will certainly return to should I ever find myself in Napier overnight.

You are quite right, we have several different types of Studios; from the Mini with tea, cofffee and toaster, through to the King with a Super King Bed, and microwave kitchenette. Thanks again.

Can't beat the very central location of this good-value motel. Excellent service from the very friendly staff, also appreciated being allowed to leave car in hotel carpark for a few hours after check-out. Rooms were a bit small, but very comfortable and clean, perhaps could do with some updating of facilities ( flat screen TV, wireless internet ).

Thanks again to the staff for a wonderful stay!

Thanks for the lovely review DannoPants! Flat screen TV's are the number one item on our "ToDo" list... as the prices continue downwards we are getting closer to achieving this. We have offered WiFi as well as LAN-based ADSL2 Broadband connection since we purchased the business in December 2008. We prefer the "wired" connection, as it is noticably faster, and offers greater security.
