"Grabone Deal". After a long trip from Auckland to Napier all we wanted was a friendly Motel that was clean, tidy and ready. We booked in and shown to our "Suite"everything was excellent. Our choice of a free breakfast was a pleasant surprise and a platter of cheese and crackers was superb. It was peaceful and relaxing the only hard... More

This motel is located just outside of downtown Napier (about 10 minute drive). It is very clean and has well appointed rooms! There are lots of utensils to cook with. The owner is very friendly and was helpful in assisting us!! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit Napier.

Its nice to stay somewhere, when you can tell that the guests comfort is at the top of the hosts' mind. The beds were great, electric blankets, extra pillows and blankets. Cotton robes, and plenty of towels. There's no "meanness" here. Well done. It was a pleasure to stay here.

We were very impressed with the quality of our studio unit. Private, no road noise or neighbour noise and a comfortable well set up unit. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Unit was spotlessly cleaned and well appointed. We will return.

Very pleasantly surprised to see the excellent sized room we were allocated when booking into the Ballina. Very well furnished for either a business or leisure traveller. We found the bed very comfortable & my wife was impressed with the linen quality. The room was very quiet & there was no noise from a nearby pub or the adjacent road.... More

Setting up for a road trip I used TA to help sort out an option for Napier. Since this was a BW I figured it had to have a minimal level of comfort, but I was wrong. This place was extremely nice, comfortable, and a role model for roadside motels. The room was large with excellent linens, comfortable bed, tele... More

We just returned from our New Zealand trip and are delighted with our stay at the Ballina. Cozy, sweet and inviting, it provided a true haven to rest. We were shown to our room so we could inspect it and given fresh milk for our coffee...a New Zealand tradition. The room was spacious with a beautiful balcony and wonderful comfy... More
