“A FAMILY STAY”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

We ( 2 adults & 2 kids under 5) stayed here in Feb 2011 just before Art Deco week. We stayed in the large family unit that is on the street. The unit was upstairs & downstairs which was a challenge due to our 20 month old wanting to climb the stairs constantly - however we wedged the ironing board in the stair case to stop this!

The unit was very hot due to no air con - hard to get the kids to sleep at night. Also not ideal to open the windows due to road noise & safety.

This accomodation had a pool which the kids loved & small playground.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2011

Had a studio room on the ground floor. Appeared to have had a light renovation some time ago. Room was very clean.
Old style CRT TV with less than average picture. Every time someone upstairs made a move the floorboards creaked and kept us awake.Close walk to the waterfront and restaurants. No road noise. Toaster and kettle were handy for breakfast. The curtains did a good job of blocking out the light from outside.

Room Tip: Book upstairs room so the creaking floorboards dont keep you awake.

Room was fine and staff were friendly but had to pay for rubbish internet which was important to us for booking onward travel plans. Location a bit of a walk from bars and night life and no local takeaways

One block behind Marine Parade, so no views, but peace and quiet. We greatly enjoyed our one-night stay: friendly reception, nice small pool for our son, revamped bathroom, well equipped kitchenette. We would choose to stay again if in Napier.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2011

We stayed at this motel over a busy holiday weekend, and, despite being completely booked up, were VERY impressed with it. The rooms are not super modern, but they are comfortable and extremely clean. The bed was large and comfortable, we had a generous amount of free wifi and we were able to use the office printer at one point.

The hosts were absolutely lovely and extremely helpful, and that really made our stay. They knew the area and attractions very well, and they always had a smile for guests.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2011

We stayed one night. Unlike a prior reviewer, we didn't find the Fountain Court to be all that outdated. Some features may not be brand new, but everything was well cared for and very clean. The room was large. The kitchen was set up to be very usable. The desk/chair setup was excellent for for computer use, writing postcards, etc... ( I don't like always having my laptop computer actually in my lap.) Location is good. If you're worried about a noisy TV from a neighbor, don't be. In our room at least , the maximum volume was low enough to be annoying -- my one criticism. My husband's hearing is very good, better than mine, but even he was straining to hear it. Still, we recommend this facility. The positives far outweigh any negatives.
