“Value for Money - Large bathroom,with spa. walking distance to city attractions”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

We arrived in the afternoon for a two day stay. The friendly reception provided us with brochures on local attractions/tours and booked a full day winery tour on our behalf for the following day, she also provided a local map and information about restaurants in the area. A voucher was also provided for a free drink each at the RSA (only one block away) if a buffet meal was purchased - two course carvery.
The units were a little older but clean. We needed to do our laundry, washing machine & dryer only $2 each with washing powder provided and clothes line also available. There was also a pool and children's play area which we didn't use.
A quirky feature was that all the hot and cold taps were reversed in our unit, not sure if this was the case throughout the motel.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Wine tour with Odessey tours was great value and the full day tour included lunch(very nice) at the oldest winery in NZ - The Mission.

Room Tip: The units are double storey with a timber floor, so if you take advantage of the level access to the...

Good Location with a short walk to the city centre attractions and the beach, l found the accommodation to be excellent, being a studio type room which was clean, tidy and well equipped. The staff l found to be most helpful, and breakfast (very good) was brought to my room.

Comfortable compact studio unit with modern facilities. The motel is centrally located one road back from sea front. This is convienient but does mean that the location is not especially picturesque. Bit lacking in character but still faultless.

Turned up at 12.30pm hoping to get in early and have a wee but couldn't, had to wait till the 2pm book in. It would have been nice if they had a 'guest' toilet and allowed us to use the pool until the room was ready. We were allowed to leave bags in the Reception area though which was very handy. THe room for 4 people had a little kitchen with fridge, 2 burner hob and toaster, handy and certainly enough for what we were needing. Clean and very well put together. Linen was good quality not cheap stuff, had a good sleep. The bathroom was huge and really nice too. Would certainly revisit.

We found this Motel in a great spot and great value for money and being close to the beach and the town centre was also a bonus. It was spotless and had everything we wanted in the way of kitchen facilities.

Overall it was not too bad a stay as we were there for the Mission concert so we could appreciate that the staff were busy with a full motel.

We shared a two bed unit with family members who stay there every year for the concert. Our feedback as overseas visitors is that the beds are comfortable. There is plenty of space wasted space in the lounge area yet only one small couch for four people to use, tv stuck in far corner of wall, not sure why. We wanted to do our washing on arrival having been on the road but they only allow use of the laundry in the afternoon so we had to drive into the city to find a laundromat. They should consider using the wasted space in the bathroom to install a washIng machine and dryer that would have been ideal. A pity the BBQ is wrecked, as we would have liked to have a BBQ meal given we had good weather. the motel is in an ideal location only one street back from the Esplanade and not too far to walk to town or restaurants, supermarkets. We had a good time though in Napier.

Overall i found upstairs traffic bothering but as a whole, the staff made it a pleasure with their infectious laughter, smiles and great room service. Fantastic area as it's close to town, restaurants and beach. Luckily enough to have beautiful weather too.
