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

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
