Heat pump kept the place warm. Convenient location about 10 minute walk from central Napier. The front desk were happy to... More

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.

I regularly stay at the Beachfront Motel in Napier, as it is well situated for my business requirements. As I came in for my latest stay the sign said 'under new management', which can sometimes be a challenge. I got the same friendly welcome, the rooms were cleaned to the usual high standard, and I am happy that nothing had... More
