Having never been to Napier before, a lucky random pick out of the hotel guide book brought us to the Gardner Court. A warm welcome to a genuinely quiet but well positioned complex was just the start. Our host gave us a look at the accommodation before we committed, just in case it wasn't to our taste, but we were... More

We have stayed at this motel 12 times over the past 6 years. Peter and Ann keep the units in tip top order and the highest of cleanliness. Over the 6 years the units have been gradually refurbished. We have never had one thing to complain about the standard of the units or service. On the whole we feel Gardner... More

Napier is one of the prettiest towns to visit and our stay was enhanced by the warm welcome that we received from Peter and the standard of the unit. The view over the park is very nice and the motel is situated so that everything is in easy reach, one of the nicest places to stay in New Zealand. The... More

We have stayed at this motel a number of times now and find it to be one of the nicest we have stayed at in NZ. The rooms are clean, tidy and a good size and ours had a great view out into the nearby park. The kitchen facilities are very good with both a hob and an oven being... More

This is truly a gem. It's close to downtown Napier with the seaside walk and restaurants. The property is very well managed with clean, updated units, tidy yards with flowers, tables and chairs for dining outside. The pool is private, clean and very inviting on a warm day. Everything is there for cooking - except a coffee plunger since so... More

I arrived at this hotel for my annual holiday with my wife and 3 daughters. We had only been there for 2 hours and I was abused for slamming the pool gate and using the towels from the room! The owner was very abusive and he also was very nasty to my wife. Very disappointing so we checked out and... More

I stay here for a week once a year for work and always find it clean, comfy and good value for money.The owners are friendly and helpful. It is close to the city center and shops etc, but removed enough to be quiet and peaceful as it backs onto a park. Thanks Peter and Ann - great motel.

I stay here every year when I come to Napier for work. Peter and Ann are so nice. Peter always offers to pick me up from the airport which is unusual for a motel to offer this service and very handy too! Very quiet and spotless units. They remind me of how motels use to be - a home away... More

We stayed for one night here and found the motel good value for money. It is not near the sea front, but is only a 10-15 minute walk with supermarkets nearby. The accommodation is clean and warm and fits in with the Art Deco theme of Napier. The owners were very helpful and gave us some fruit when we arrived.... More

My partner and I were only staying in Napier for one night as part of our road trip around the east of the North Island and arrived needing somewhere to stay. We had a Jasons accommodation book that told us that this place was relatively cheap but still near the centre of town. We showed up hoping for a vacancy... More
