We were pre-booked to stay here for one night late in September, 2014. We were a group of three mature age adults. From the outside, the section we stayed in looked dated but inside it was refurbished, comfortable and clean. We had a large unit with separate kitchen, lounge and bedroom. The managers were friendly and helpful. The position to... More

The motel had all the amenities one needed. It was clean and not too far from the water. We stayed fro 2 nights. You can hear some sort of train at night but we found it exciting and my husband wanted to get up and go and see it. Napier is a great town to explore.

We chose to stay here due to the motel's close proximity to McLean Park for the All Blacks game. On arrival we received a fairly cool reception with mainly yes/ no responses from the manager. For example when we asked if we could get a newspaper next day the answer was "no" and that was all. We were required to... More

As Kevin was walking with you, to show you the unit you were staying in, he was asked about the paper and replied, "no sorry we don't supply papers" He thinks you might not of heard his full answer. Most guests stay the one night for the rugby, however we do have 2 night deal with such a shortage of... More

I stayed for two nights whilst on a work trip and was really impressed by the cleanliness and friendly staff. The room was simple and had everything I needed to sleep, have breakfast and do some work. I slept well in the quiet at night!

The motel unit we stayed in was tidy but very basic and very dated.The place was very shabby,paint peeling etc but a better clean would help. Beds very comfy but top covers badly stained and grubby. When we left and handed in the keys at the front office at 9.15am,the manager came down in his dressing gown. Not a pleasant... More

A no frills motel but ideal for those travelling on a tight budget. We had a 1 bedroom unit for our family of 4, with the children sleeping on the two beds in the lounge. The beds were comfortable and the unit was of acceptable cleanliness. Kitchen and bathroom were dated but functional. The complex was quiet at night and... More

I am writing on behalf of my elderly parents who stayed at this motel in Feb 2014. This was supposed to be a very special trip for them but their experience at this motel has tarnished their memory of this destination. The motel room was described as filthy, so much so that when they walked on the floor their feet... More
