Stayed in this motel for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent and very accommodating. A stones throw from the beach and despite having a ground floor ocean view room I had gorgeous views across to the ocean. The rooms are large and roomy with cosy bathrooms. An added bonus was the huge spa bath and king... More

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our one night stay here. John was the ultimate host, with lots of tips of where to go and what to do. The unit was huge and so well equipped, everything was thought of. Would recommend to all.

Stayed one night in a ground floor unit, on the back street (not beachfront side). It was clean and tidy, good size unit. If it had been a better weekend (weather-wise) it would have been good to have a unit with a better view. We arrived early (around 11 am) without a booking, but, as the unit was available, we...

We had a ground floor unit which was very clean and spacious. The spa bath really was more like a two person spa it was so large. Reception was warm and inviting. We thought $224 for 2 nights was very good value. Only hint to the motel was to provide a door hanging if you dont want to be disturbed... More

My husband and I stayed here two nights. We were on the first floor. Our room was clean and spacious. The balcony was pleasant too to sit and watch life go by. It was an added bonus that the all blacks were in town and I got a glimpse of several walking about. We had a spa bath each night... More

Myself and my best friend stayed here for a night on Friday. The room was really nice and the view we had was amazing, price was really good too. However, the people at reception were not too pleasant at all. The man was quite rude on the phone when I called before booking and really sarcastic in person. The lady... More

We spent 2 nights here in winter and had a pleasant stay. Had a spa pool in the room which was a nice way to relax. Nice large bed, clean motel room with basic kitchenette with everything we needed. Heat pump kept the place warm. Convenient location about 10 minute walk from central Napier. The front desk were happy to... More

At the reception you met the most unpleasant person of New zealand; Room are very cold when you arrive in winter. Room service don't clean the room every day, they just change towel but don't make bed or vacuum cleaner. Also they never say good morning swell. Our room was on ground floor, we didn't have curtain to avoid people... More

Breakfast is provided (room service) however we have no record of a breakfast being requested by you during your stay with us. All rooms are fully furnished which includes nets, drapes and extra pillows. Rooms are serviced daily... More

Not only does this place have a great view of the seas, you can also watch the television whilst enjoying a relaxing spa bath. Would totally recommend the beach front motel in Napier- service at the front desk outstanding.
