Booked this on someones advice and not disappointed. Friendly welcome and nice big clean room for $170 for a night found it good value. The owner has also taken the time to compile a good information folder with the local eateries. Usefull, it was clean and comfortable with large beds that helped a good nights rest after a long drive.

Having now stayed in a number of New Zealand Motels, they are frankly way better than motels or places like the Premier inn in the UK. This was another very good motel with loads of space, a spa bath, good cooking facilities etc. The only thing lacking is storage space for clothes. Service was friendly and efficient and Havelock North... More

When I initially planned my trip to the Napier area, I had hoped to say in Napier itself. I was somewhat disappointed that the nearest available accommodation I could find was in Havelock North, about 12 miles away. It turned out to be the happiest of accidents. Not only was Havelock North a lovely, warm community, but the Village Motel... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights whilst visiting the Napier/Hastings area for which it is well located. It's right in the middle of the small town so walking to shops and restaurants is easy. It was quiet even though near the centre, although when we were staying there was a major development under construction across the road so... More

Stayed here for 2 nights last week, the motel was extremely clean. Overall the property lacks any kind of ambience - it is just the bare essential. We had a small 2 seater sofa/couch but no coffee table to place any cup of tea on. Across the road is a new commercial development underway, although there is earth moving equipment,... More

We were very happy when we opened the door to our studio. The room was clean and the bed was comfy, the in-room spa and air con were just superb. The only thing to point out, which is just being picky really, we had read that there was complimentary internet access. Nothing about this was mentioned on checkin and as... More

This motel was really well situated near shops and cafes. The rooms were spotless and the spa was an added bonus after a long day cycling. Very comfortable beds, free wifi and obliging staff. Great place.

Although there are plenty of motels to choose from in this small village, I always return to Village Motel for the great customer service, and its simple, practical and tidy rooms. Rooms have a large spa bath in addition to an ensuite with shower. Rooms at this motel have all the basic amenities you need, including air conditioning/heat pump, and... More
