We were back in Napier visiting a relative, she doesn't have a lot of space so we booked to stay here. The location is excellent right on Marine Parade, we booked the largest unit with two bedrooms as we like plenty of space, and my relative came to stay overnight for one night. Great balcony to eat out on, kitchen...

Stayed here for a line dancing weekend event. Napier was booked out and we chose a great place to stay. The variety of rooms was great and the room I had was spacious and also had a spa bath in the bathroom!

Choosing accommodation from afar can be a bit like buying a lottery ticket. But with the Edgewater we were on a winner. We arrived at 11.00am and expected to be told to come back at 2pm. Wrong. The friendly staff member said she would check when the room would be ready and we were told to come back at 12....

We loved spending the long weekend here and have stayed here twice now. The location is perfect for us as it's directly across the road from the beach and a huge playground. Perfect if you have little ones. The property has a small pool which my two kids really enjoyed. We liked the upstairs rooms as you have a nice...

Hello Goldie66. Good to see that you enjoyed Napier and all the things good about Hawkes Bay. We try really hard with making sure every thing in the unit is working and the units are clean.

We stayed 2 nights in the holiday period - Jan 2017 so choices were limited. The unit was average in facilities, poor information for clients - restaurant information sheet was 6 years old and obviously prices had changed. Staff were very helpful regarding places to dine.

Hello 888gailm. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are very disappointed in the rating that you have given us considering that 1 of the 18 restaurant menus in the information booklet was out of date. Of the 18 menus, the local RSA is the only establishment that alters there prices but does not tell us...

We stayed at Edgewater Motor Lodge for 3 nights including New Years Eve. We thought this motel offered incredible value for the location, quality and the time of year.

When I'm looking for a room with a view in Napier, Edgewater usually comes out on top. Best combination of location/price/facilities. Not as flash as some places no doubt, and parking is always a bit tight, but the price is usually right. Myself, my mum, and my niece stayed in room 18 which is on level 1 with a separate...

Lovely spot on the seafront. Friendly service but an average motel. Clean room but no hot water on our last morning. I know things go wrong but the response was not as you would expect. Perhaps a small refund?

Great food and people. The edgewater was within walking distance of the city center, an Art Deco area, repaired during the 30's earthquake. Free wifi, laundry facilities. I just wish I'd had more time to explore this area.
