Traditional Kiwi hospitality, located in a quiet street, Easy walk to shops and marine parade, Comfortable and spacious units and very helpful and friendly hosts. Great base from which to explore the lovely art deco city centre, the vinyards, farmers market and the bike trails.

The motel, called "the quiet one", lives up to its name! It's on the outskirts of the city center, within easy walking distance of city center and shops. Three supermarkets are 5 minutes walk away. My room was a 1 bedroom bungalow, very spacious and VERY quiet, I slept like a log! The owners are very friendly and helpful, and... More

Gardner Court Motel is not very large, only 10 units. It is located on a quiet side street with no traffic noise and reasonably handy to the town. The décor is rather dated but clean and has everything you require. The proprietors are friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and the price was right.

This place is amazing! If you like quiet accommodation with friendly helpful hosts, then this is the place for you. It is a few minutes walk from the city and supermarkets. Everything at your fingertips. The accommodation is clean and comfortable and nothing seems to be too much trouble for Peter and Ann.

This motel is a gem. It lives up to its name as "the quiet one", it's spacious, spotlessly clean, and great value. It's just a few minutes walk to downtown. We stayed just one night in a one-bedroom unit after receiving a warm and helpful welcome from the friendly hosts. Sure, the unit is old (1960s?) but has everything you... More

I stayed at Gardner Court Motel for a couple of nights in one of the one bedroom units. It sells itself as "The Quiet One", and lives up to its name. Very quiet and peaceful. I stayed in one of the older units, which are not at all flash, but are super comfortable (big comfy bed), and exceptionally clean -... More

This motel is for those who want something a little different. What a delight - it was like stepping back to my childhood. No flashy decor here, but good old fashioned comfort. Our large, separate bedroom unit (#8) had a sliding glass door that looked out onto a lovely lawned area and beyond that a sporting field. The owners are... More

Gardner Court Motel is located in central Napier. It is an easy stroll to the city centre and to Marine Parade. The motel decor is not so fashionable, but the units are spacious, and scrupulously clean. Everything you need is there and it is very reasonably priced. Friendly helpful hosts who work hard to keep things ship shape.

Spent two very enjoyable nights at the Gardner Court in January. Peter was kind enough to pick me up from the I Site as I had no transport of my own & both he & Ann made me feel immediately at home on arrival. The unit was immaculately clean with everything that I needed with a lovely view of the... More
