We stayed for Easter. The location was very convenient for visiting friends and wineries over the holidays. The room was spacious and clean, but a bit worn and dated. Unfortunately we were in the first room, so had the road noise and the repetitive noise of the reception buzzer. Ask for a room at the back if you get a... More

If Taradale is your choice of destination - think apple orchards, vineyards, cycle paths (not overwhelming but not underwhelming either), a hop skip & jump from Napier - then this motel is a pretty good choice. Located on busy Gloucester st, it's easy to find & a short walk into town. The rooms are large - it seems a king... More

Wierd. We accessed this booking through a Grabone Deal - looking for a regular place to stay as we visit the Hawkes Bay often and The Church is just a little cost prohibitive. This property is clean and spacious and would have suited if only... The manager was more hospitable and friendly. And they hadn't tried to shirk out of... More

Stayed here for around a week during a family wedding. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and very spacious with a well supplied stock of coffee/tea/biscuits. The staff were all friendly and the manager Tim couldn't do enough to help. When the second wedding car failed to show he saved the day by shutting the office and driving the bridal party... More

"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.

Excellent motel, impressed by the quality of the upkeep this unit. Very well equipped. Very comfortable bed. Nice extra touches. Excellent location with good meal options closeby. Have been travelling throughout NZ over the last 2 months, 30 nights in accommodation and this Motel was one of the best we stayed at and reasonable value. Will return

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.

We were pleasantly surprised staying here. The room was very large and either new or newly refurbished. Handy kitchenette. Large bathroom. Comfortable bed with lovely linen. Sky TV. Free wireless internet access to 500MB. Highly recommended!
