Although the owners were away on their summer holiday, Ian and Margaret, the stand-in managers, couldn’t have been more warm and welcoming.
You will definitely need a car for the Deco City Motor Lodge as it is too far to walk to the town centre. And when I was there, it was completely full, which meant parking in the main courtyard area was tricky as there were many vehicles with only just about enough spaces with some double-parking.
The studio room was large, bright, clean, comfortable and very nicely presented and had everything you would need, including air-conditioning, microwave, large fridge and excellent, fast wi-fi. [There are two Countdowns, opposite each other rather bizarrely, just a 5 minute drive away].
Having a shower in a large, jacuzzi corner tub was a little odd, with limited shower curtain protection to keep the water in, but the bathroom itself was a good size. The net curtains in the room obscured a wonderful morning sunrise view. The kettle leaked and the water kind of spouted out – though I am sure that the front desk would willingly have swapped it for another if I asked them/had been staying for longer. There was some background traffic noise, as Kennedy Street is remarkably busy for a relatively quiet town, but the noise wasn’t intrusive.
But overall, Deco is a very good accommodation choice in the delightful city of Napier.
