The location of this motel is near the city center, that's a good thing. Sadly it lacked of cleanness and is very outdated. Rooms could use a refreshment, because all the furniture is very old. But people were friendly and nice.

As per the title, Kevin and Joy were amazing. I was staying with a bunch of monkeys whilst we were working at McLean Park for the rugby test. We stayed on and off for a couple of months. Kevin and Joy were always friendly, accommodating and helpful. I would stay anywhere they were managing because of their attitude towards helping... More

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.
