We really enjoyed our short stay at this motel. The room was very nice and had everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean and the bed and pillows were nice and comfy. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and the location was great. We were easily able to walk to nearby bars and cafes and just a short drive... More

Thankyou Mary for your comments. Carol & I have spent a lot of time, money and energy with consultants to refurbish our Motel. If a client was a shop-a-holic and stayed with us they would best have their own transport or rely on public transport to get to the action. If on the other hand you were one that preferred... More

Thankyou "offagain-11" for your comments. To complete the refurbishment of the Motel we had furniture ordered but on hold till after Xmas because of an international sporting fixture taking place here over that period. The new furniture is now in the units. The issue re limited sky channels has been addressed with all new LCD flat screen TV's being installed... More

We booked an internet special with Marineland Motel Napier. This was supposed to be a 47 square metre two bedroom apartment - brand new.(Just like shown on the pictures on their web site). We were very excited and recommended our parents book one too. What we got was a semi re-furbished room that looked like the local farmer had done... More

This motel is on the outskirts of town. If you are shopping/dining/drinking in town and want to be able to walk back to your hotel/motel it is not suitable. I guess you could catch a cab. It is a few minutes drive from the middle of town. Service was friendly. The room was clean, comfortable and satisfactory. Although the motel... More

Thankyou Rickey for your review. You are correct with regard to the time/distance to walk to/from the Motel into the city centre. However since early this year there has been introduced a bus service that carries passengers between our area and the city centre but more importantly we think, is that there are 9 fabulous Restaurants/Bars or Cafe's within 5...

This was my second visit to Marineland Motel, the first time being April 2009. First impressions go a long way and as before, I was greeted like a long lost family member. Carol and Evan welcomed me with open arms. As before, my room was presented to a very high standard with absolutely no concerns by myself. Although the rooms... More

Stayed for 2 nights at the front, then one night a few days later in the main part of motel. Felt the double glazing wasnt the best I had come across, but ok. Room clean and tidy and modern. Internet good, staff friendly. Food was to die for, had it delivered every night I was there. Would stay again

Thankyou Camtw for your comments re the double glazing in the windows of the unit at the front of the complex you recently stayed in. When we originally rebuilt those unit (approx. 2 yrs ago) the glazier at the time recommended "laminated" glass. that process cost close to $6.5k. for both units. We then consulted with another glazier who recommended... More

We were attracted to staying at Marineland mainly due to the indoor heated swimming pool (which was a treat). When we got there we were very impressed with our room which seemed newly renovated and had a generous bathroom and a perfectly adequate kitchenette. The hosts provide breakfast the night before (your choice of cereals and breads) which you prepare... More
