Pania Lodge is a nice place to stay - basic but all that you will need. Spotlessly clean, spacious rooms and nice and quiet given it is on a main road. Really good value for money and well worth the stay!

Let me start with the positives: excellent bed with firm mattress, spacious motel room tastefully furnished, jug of milk in cold fridge. And now the negatives: the cutlery was cheap and nasty, the toilet paper was equally cheap and nasty ( and not a spare roll supplied!), the towels in the bathroom were thin and obviously bought on special somewhere...and...

Your room was fully equipped with towelling for 2 people which was changed daily. If you required extra you had only to ask. Your complaint that the Wi-Fi was rationed to 200mb I can answer as follows: When I gave you the ticket you said it was more than enough for your needs. All our guests say the same. Extra... More

Everything in our unit was clean and tidy, and it had all the utensils and equipment required to make breakfast. We appreciated that there was a jug of real milk in the fridge. The bed was very comfortable. Service was excellent - we told the owner we might be late, and he prepared arrangements for us to get to our... More

Spent two nights here, the units are a little dated the kitchen and bathroom areas are particularly in need of refurbishment but the bed was good. I did not find the welcome as friendly as other reviewers and I am still not sure of the owners names as the names on the card in the office were different to the... More

I am at a loss to understand your review. You recommend others to stay elsewhere yet you wanted us to book you in for an extra night. We could not because before you had made up your mind to stay, we had taken a confirmed booking which filled the motel. It is Summertime , we are busy, busy, busy and... More

This charming husband and wife offered a clean and affordable sanctuary just off the busy kennedy rd. The rooms were cleaned to a high standard everyday, and well equipped with kitchen utensils if needed. They offered helpful advice on the area and attractions, and the location is perfect for those travelling with private transport. Overall a very pleasant experience!

We normally stay with family when we are in Napier but due to a big family gathering there was no room for us so we had to stay in a motel. I picked Pania Lodge based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and I wasn't disappointed. It is a quiet, clean motel with generous sized rooms and the bed was... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights and we were very pleased with the motel. The room was clean and the bedding spotless. The owner, John, could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The motel is situated on one of the main roads into Napier and so access to the town is easy. As we were there... More

If you are looking for a simple motel, with all the basic facilities. then this is the one. All cooking facilities...2 burners, m/wave, pots, pans & dishes. Very central location for Napier area, close to main express-way. This place is outstanding value for money. Comfortable beds, good shower, separate toilet, excellent tv and coverage,

What a wonderful motel to run away to. Many thanks to John & Ann for making our get away enjoyable. We decided to get away from Wellington for a couple of nights of piece & quiet, found Pania Lodge through the internet & enjoyed the reviews so made the booking. Wonderful little motel, quiet, nice & close to central Napier... More

We stayed at this motel for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room was pretty large and had a table and chairs. The kitchen area had a microwave and full fridge and the bathroom area was big with a good shower. The room was immaculate and was really good value for money. At first we found the hosts... More
