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

We stayed for 1 night in December 2014 and I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed based on other Tripadvisor reviews. We arrived a bit early at 1.00 pm with check in at 2.00pm but thought we'd just try our luck. Being a busy time of year, the room was not ready but the lovely lady in the office... More

Thanks for your comments, but the units have been updated and in the last 18 months new King Koil beds were installed, air condioning installed, most furniture either replaced or recovered, new spreads and the list goes on. You did choose to go into a 1 bedroom and pay more where as a studio would of been more than acceptable.... More

This motor lodge is not my favorite. At first they disputed the room I had booked trough my booking agent. The signage in the rooms are confusing, and not clear. It looks like coffee, thea and sugar is charged extra. Rooms are clean and tidy.

Thanks for your comments but I think you are confused, as there is another property with a similar name Can not comment about a supposed mix up regarding units, but I can say we have no signage in our units either on walls or cupboards etc regarding any matters. We do have a very comprehensive compendium and there is no... More

The hotel is well situated for travel to city centre (2 km) and is easy access to Hastings and surrounding areas. Our room was large and very clean. Bed was very comfortable. The kitchenette had everything we needed. The host, Clinton is simply the best. He goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is perfect. He is Napier's best... More

This motel was very welcoming and the staff helpful. Rooms were spacious and very comfortable and the motel was quiet night. Ideal for staying a few nights. However the location is not ideal as it is a bit out of the town centre. You definitely need a car!

Had a one night stay at Deco City and was a great experience. Very large spacious room, super comfy beds and huge spa bath. Good off street parking also and just a short car ride away from central Napier and a number of restaurants close by. Clinton and Robyn were particularly friendly and Clinton makes an amazing brekkie in the... More

We stayed here with overseas visitors. We booked a 1 bedroom unit but got given the 2 bedroom no extra charge. The room was roomy, clean and a decent sized bathroom. The pool water was warm. Would def go back.

This motel was extremely comfortable - great beds ,plump sofas, lots of room and very quiet although it was reasonably full at the time. The Spa bath in every room is a plus - it filled quickly and it was a great unwind after a busy day. The little touches were great - real coffee and plunger, newspapers, etc and... More
