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.

Very helpful management, large room with unexpected spa, well cleaned. Also very convenient location. Have given this 5 but internet could be given out in larger chunks and would be better with power points above desk, but these were minor points for most and internet was still functional and management did provide enough vouchers happily.

so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Unlike many properties I do not allow my staff a quick run around with a duster but to do the cleaning to a high stand, so great it was appreciated. We look forward to a return visit

Just a quick business trip. E-mailed them the day before. Although busy a room was available. Signing in was efficient. The room was excellent with lights and switches where one would expect to find them. The shower was the walk-in type with facilities ready to hand. The air-conditioning was perfect. Various chairs and tables were convenient with room to manoeuvre...

We stayed 5 nights here but not in the main lodge. We had rented the house next door which is part of their motel. It was nice, sleeps up to 10+ but the first night we were so cold. The only electric heater was on the wall in the lounge and vibrated so loudly that we couldn't have it on....

Thanks for the comments. I write this as the owner of the property and we were away. The managers who were here are the absolute best in the business and had in fact alerted us to some challenges and the response to them before this arrived. I have since gone through this with them in more detail. On arriving you...
