Staying at Deco City is a wonderful experience. The facilities are obviously consistently upgraded. Little extras in room such as shoe shine. Our fridge was quiet as a mouse. Lovely fluffy towels and the people are very welcoming and accommodating. Questions answered in friendly manner with a few jokes thrown in to make you feel at home. Only place to...

We have stayed here every year for the last 5 years for the Napier Art Deco weekend. There are many choices but we find this property to be consistently good in their service, amenities and cleanliness. We had a two bedroom unit which had a spa bath, massive bathroom and two good sized rooms, two TV's good air con and...

We drove up to the motel to check in, first impressions great layout, good location. On check in the receptionist was warm, friendly & efficient. Unfortunately she couldn't find our booking as it transpired I had mistakenly made the booking but instead of 18/02, I'd booked it for the wrong month 18/03! (Booking made on the cellphone - big mistake!)....

So pleased you were happy with the outcome and that the room was great. We all have moments when do do something silly (like book a wrong date and I have done that) . Napier is a great place for a holiday and if the accommodation meets or exceeds expectations that is even better. Thanks for choosing us as your...

Although our upstairs studio only had the minimum kitchen facilities it was spacious and had a large, fully tiled bathroom with a huge corner spa bath (with shower over for a quick rinse or hair wash!) Staff were extremely helpful when we asked to stay for 2 nights instead of just the one we had booked. the receptionist shuffled things...

Pleased you enjoyed your stay and what both the city and Deco City had to offer made you want to stay another night. Our units are large and pleased you appreciated that. There is one car park per unit and sorry works best if they are not numbered as someone would always have to walk further, and may say BUT...

Well appointed as to getting to and from the city centre and on a direct route. Pleasant accommodation and quiet, Was originally booked for one night only in a 2 room unit for 3 adults, but we asked for a second night and this was found for us even though we had to move units to a shared room we...

We were quite surprised by the location of this Lodge. Our room was perfect with a nice view from the second floor. The staff at the office were helpful and they tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They are well informed when asked about Napier and specially outdoor activities. The location was in close reach of amenities...

We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was very roomy & easily fitted the 4 of us in. Room was very clean & tidy and the kids found the pool great to cool off after a hot day. Reasonably handy to a new world supermarket & a few shops but mainly driving distance to restaurants. Room has a decent size...

Our 2 bedroom units are certainly spacious and well equipped. I hear your comments on car parking, with a 2 storey property it is not practical to park everyone outside there unit but we do have 1 car park per unit. we look forward to a return visit

Very nice place to stay in with a pretty good price considering our stay was over Christmas! Nice quiet place without a peep from the neighbours which in our experience isn't very common. Only downside was the air con pump that'd make a horrible noise every half hour-hour regardless if it was on or off. Other than that, very helpful...

pleased you will return. Sorry for the problem with the heat pump, but I can assure you this was repaired by a serviceman when they returned from holiday. Unlike many properties we do have concrete walls and floors between room and that does help with sound proofing.

We stayed here as a family a few months after the Deco opened 19 years ago. It was great then and now. We enjoyed a spacious, quiet, clean and well appointed room for 5 days prior to Xmas. It's a great location if you have a car. So close to Napier city centre and easy access to the region. Parking...

So pleased you enjoyed your return visit. Yes after 19 plus years we are still here and enjoying what the Bay (and Deco City) has to offer. We are continually updating the property and hope to sign off on painting the building and starting a recarpet programme this month.
