The room we had was really spacious and comfortable. The queen bed had one of those egg crate memory mattress on top which was soooooo comfortable! The single bed in the lounge was good for our son. The spa bath was really lovely. Was nice to have real coffee for a plunger, not just the tinfoil packet stuff. Within easy... More

We had a a family of 4 so needed a bit of space and the 2 bedroom unit was great, plenty of room, clean and tidy. Plenty of towels. The on site restaurant was great. We received free Wi-Fi for all 3 devicies (reducing the arugments). The motel was close to the supermarket and city centre. Would stay here again.

We found this Motel to be clean and comfortable. The room was quite spacious and the hosts very friendly and helpful. Free Wi-Fi was provided and there is a restaurant on site for dinner or breakfast. Laundry facilities are provided at minimal cost. Not outstanding but good value and quiet.

I would highly recommend staying here. The rooms were clean and modern. The owners were incredibly friendly and willing to help. The prices were very reasonable. This motel is also within walking distance of the main shopping centre (10-15 min walk). I will definitely be staying here again next time I'm in Napier.

Palm City Motor Inn is awesome. Rooms were clean, comfortable and warm. The owners were really friendly and really willing to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Found it to be close to a shopping center but still quiet. Will definitely be staying here when in Napier from now on.

Our family stayed at Palm City many times now and every time was excellent! All of the rooms we've been in were super clean and comfortable. The owners are amazing - and go the extra mile - even offering to babysit our 3 month old during dinner, upgrading to a bigger room for no extra charge... This is the best... More
