The Receptionist made checking in quite painless. Reception also provided a lot of help and assistance to help us enjoy our stay in the area. Our room on the ground floor had a view over the beach and out to see. Very nice. The motel is in good decorative order. The furnishings are good quality and in good repair. The... More

Stayed for a week while playing Masters hockey. Very comfortable and it was good to be able to sit outside with a sea view. Would recommend it. A wide variety of rooms ... some with cooking facilities.

Ahuriri is a good location and the Motel has views out to the ocean although ours on the ground level were not as good as it would be on first floor. Very noisy at ground level at back of hotel and no fresh air at night as have to keep curtains closed as people can see in and bright lights... More

We loved this place. After stocking up on wine and beer it was the perfect spot to take in the harbour happenings. It was quiet and clean with nice restaurants nearby. Be sure to go to Milk and Honey for dinner. A block away.

We wanted to see family and friends in the Hawkes Bay so booked in to the Harbour View Motor Lodge. It had been recommended by friends so went with high hopes and we were not disappointed. Our room was ground floor and as with all their rooms it had the most wonderful view over a wide grassy area to a... More

We stay here on a regular basis for business trips. Great view fro all the rooms but the second floor is the best. Walking distance to some nice eateries, East Pier is just across the grass. Not far from the port, so can watch the ships coming and going, also some surfing if surfs up. Good size rooms and bathrooms.... More

We had a ground floor very large room with king size bed, large bathroom and good kitchen facilities. Our room was light and airy, due to the wall to wall double doors which opened up onto the lawns, which led down to the sea. Nice quiet location. It would take five minutes to drive into the centre, but we chose... More

WOW, loved this place. Had a family room and was beautiful!! Views were amazing, suprised by the spa in the room & its size staff were lovely. We only spent one night here. Could have very easily stayed a week or more. We were offered free WIFI and a small carton of milk on arrival. Given a map of town... More

I have stayed at several establishments in Napier, and for my needs, this is my prefered place to stay. It has ample parking, front and rear doors for privacy, is not located within the hustle bustle, and has lovely views. I love the upstairs units where the balcony doors can be left open at night, and you actually hear.... Nothing!... More

This was a great base. The roomy executive one bedroom with kitchenette was perfect for a comfortable three day visit. Rooms look across lawn to the coastal path and bay. A forty minute walk or five minute drive into Napier. Several great cafes nearby.
