Stayed here one night. The reception was friendly and efficient, the unit was clean and light and warm. A good shower. A perfectly adequate kitchen - got takeaways, but would have been ok for cooking. Comfortable bed. Good location, close to the centre of town and close to Marine Parade.

I stayed for two nights. The room was clean and had a fully equipped kitchen. The bed had an electric blanket which was great since it's cold this time of year. It's only a two to five minute walk to the beautiful coastline and aquarium as well.

Very clean and tidy motel! I was very happy. Nice spot to sit outside, comfortable bed, full kitchen, very nice owners, movie channel on the tv and a nice walk to town along the water front. I would stay again and I recommend to all.

What a lovely little gem of a Motel. The reception I received was friendly and welcoming, the rooms neat, tidy and VERY clean with just about everything you need and the area surprisingly quiet even though it is on a very busy road. The grounds are neat and tidy with lots of fruit trees. So thanks Ben. Keep up the... More

Stayed two nights and very comfortable. Easy checking in and pleasant host. Had all the necessities but front door was a bit tricky. Needs a hard pull and a few good try because it can actually locked in. Some stuff a bit dated. Walls too thin as one can hear people talking next door. Slept in two single beds and... More

A warm welcome, a full kitchen, clean comfortable beds, separate toilet from bathroom, and an outside spot to sit under a lemon tree. The only downside was the 6am freight train rumbling past on a line that only has a couple of trains per day. It was in a good position to access shops, the marine parade or to go... More

Stayed in a Studio that offered very basic accomodation. Tiny bathroom and kitchenette and no air-con. Website says they offer breakfast but they don't. Location convenient for centre of Napier which offers many restaurants.

We called into Napier and stopped over for two nights at McLean park garden motel. Our stay was easy and comfortable and the atmosphere was pretty relaxed. The small units served the purpose and were adequate for what we needed. Situated in a perfect location, staff were pleasant, pool was refreshing and grounds were lovely. Good value for money and...
