“just what is needed..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

i stayed for two nights and i found the owners to be very friendly and relaxed. i had injured my calf muscle earlier in the day so Colin made sure i had everything i needed to avoid having to limp to the office. the only downside was no microwave in the kitchen however there was a stove if i felt like cooking. a treat was they had marmite for my toast in the morning. satisfied the taste buds till sanitarium produce more. the unit was well off the road and only a few steps to the pool. definately stay there again when i am up in Napier.

Stayed January 2013, travelled solo

The water heater in the unit indicated the motel was built in 1966 and some of the fittings and appliances reflect that era. However everything was well maintained, the units were spotless and the bed comfortable. Our unit had a full sized stove but no microwave. The only negative was that both chairs in the living area weren't that comfortable to sit in for any length of time. Hosts Colin and Jan are delightful people.

Room Tip: Kennedy Road is a main thoroughfare so rooms at the back are quieter.

Excellent value, low budget motel, about 4km out of Napier main city centre.

Low budget, but clean, tidy facilities all round. Attentive staff.

Lovely swimming pool that regrettably we didn't have time to use, as we had such a full schedule.
Trampoline that we did enjoy using.

Would love to have stayed longer, and had more time exploring Napier region. Would happily stay again.

Stayed on a Friday and Saturday night. Good location close to exit from expressway. Owners friendly and helpful. Room was clean with all the facilities you would expect in a motel. Bed was comfortable. Although close to main street the unit we had was very quiet.

Overall a good standard, would stay there agian.

good basic clean motel with all amenities and kitchen gadgets to cook a family meal, well stocked bathroom toiletries and towels, friendly relaxed owners. Short drive to town. Kids loved the park and pool whilst we enjoyed the spa. We were not near the road so our unit was quiet. Had everything we needed for a stop off trip. Would recommend and stay again
