I stayed at the Fern for two nights while I was in town to photograph a wedding. It's an older motel, but lovingly maintained, clean, tidy, and full of amenities (the free wifi in the rooms worked a charm and was particularly appreciated, as was the quiet air conditioning on an extremely hot January night!). These guys had only been... More

Very tidy accommodation, clean, fresh. Great pool and friendly hosts. They even gave us a bbq to use. Will definitely return next year. Close to town, supermarket and takeaways just around the corner, and on dominos pizza delivery list. This review is too long.

Wall mounted flat screen TV was a nice touch. Bathroom towels were good quality. Kitchen was very well equipped. Wifi access and speed was good. The room was exactly what it showed in the... More

Thank you for your feedback, the previous owner did spend a lot on renovating this motel, but there is always room for improvement. Our policy of prepayment avoids any people leaving without paying, which has spoilt it for decent people, but unfortunately is a sign of the times. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and try hard to make... More

Great place to stay about 5 mins out of the main streets of Napier. Has great size rooms, outdoor swimming pool, free wifi/good tv and great in room kitchen. The owners are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. Free on site parking outside your room and good laundry.
