We can well understand why this motel is popular and regularly receives great reviews. Our Unit was absolutely spotless - thank you to all the cleaners. There is an excellent compendium available with...

I chose this Motel because the tariff was very reasonable and it had a good Trip Advisor rating. I was not disappointed. With 50 channels of Free SKY TV and free fast wireless broadband it met my needs. Owner was friendly and helpful. I was in a standard studio which was roomy enough. Might be a bit on the cold...

We were running late, but the owner waited up for our arrival and made sure we were comfortably installed for the night. Very generous wifi allowance kept our daughters happy and connected with their friends. Full Sky channels to watch, that's when not out enjoying the wonderfully warm Easter weather. The walk to Ahuriri and its restaurants and cafes was...

Thought I'd thoroughly researched before booking but apparently I goofed. BRING YOUR EARPLUGS to get a good night sleep or else the trucks will keep you awake. Beware of ants if you stay in Room 34. The manager was very helpful in trying to remove the ants but they were crawling everywhere. Minor detail but important: all the faucets are...

We are on a main road, along with 90% of motels, so road noise can be an issue for some sensitive guests. Since we want all of our guests to have a good sleep, we offer free earplugs for those who may need them when travelling. However, we can count on one hand the amount that are requested over several...

Booked this motel relatively last minute (took the last available room) for a weekend trip to Napier and Hastings to see some friends. Very friendly staff, room was very clean and tidy, bedroom furniture modern and comfortable. The main reason we booked this motel however was because we could take our dog (a greyhound) with us. They were very accommodating,...

We stayed here for two nights and had a lovely time. The motel is in a convenient location with easy driving access to the city. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well-equipped. And the free wifi was a great perk! Would definitely stay here again.

Our stay was most comfortable in Napier with lots to do. Our hostess was friendly and helpful. Our accommodation was clean and all the staff were most friendly.We would have liked more time to enjoy this lovely city. Don't miss the fountain at night.
