Great welcome, lovely, helpful staff - ground floor room was a good size, with spa bath, and air-con. The room was well presented, clean and comfortable - will be staying here regularly for my business trips from now on!

We have stayed at Deco City many times over the years and it has always been comfortable and clean. The trouble with returning to the same place to stay is you start to notice that things a looking a little tired. Our recent visit was in a two bedroom apartment, and whilst there was plenty of room for the five... More

Nice hotel, very clean beds very comfortable. Quiet location with very little road noise. Located in walking distance to Thai Chef (recommended, great food) and a small mall with other shops (New World and some takeaways). Never used pool but would be good for families not for anyone wanting to do some laps though. Free wifi is good but 500mb... More

The room was large. In fact we had two bedrooms and a large bathroom. There was plenty of hot water and the rooms were very clean. It's easy to drive into Napier from the motel. Despite being on a main road, there was no traffic noise to be heard in the room. The only downside was the WiFi connection only... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a one bed apt. Had everything we needed . Full kitchen. Very clean fully serviced before we arrived back each day. Everything was refilled and replaced. Quiet too. Liked how you didn't have staff bugging you. We liked not being right in town but was close enough, to most suburbs and the way to... More

We have stayed at this property every time we are in Napier - 3 times over the last 3 years, the rooms are impeccably clean and well maintained – also the daily turndown/room cleaning is of a high standard. The bathrooms are a generous size and owners really go out of their way to ensure your stay is a pleasant... More

Do not understand the review from De-em of New Zealand. There are no particular views from this motel, certainly not from the ground floor, CERTAINLY not of Gisborne, which is many Kilometres away! Some confusion there! This was our second visit to Deco City, and we were just as impressed as before. This is not a 1930s building, but only... More

First impression not great but on closer expection the room was clean and cared for. Very old appearance,with a noisy bar fridge and a flashing corner light (when turned off!!!). But overall the room was good value and the bathroom clean.

Lovely large, spotlessly clean well equipped rooms and comfy beds. Large bathrooms and good showers. Very friendly and helpful staff. The only reservations I have are 1. The location of the property is not quite as close to the downtown area of Napier as they like to claim - it's a good hours walk to the town centre / promenade... More

Clinton G, Owner at Deco City Motor Lodge, responded to this review

Thanks for your comments, unsure which way you walked to Napier but it way obviously not the correct way. It is about 45 minutes walk in to the city and that is what we tell our guests. It is only a 5-6 minute car ride and that depends on the traffic lights. Wi-fi you are correct and we do pay... More
