Good sized comfortable rooms, close to the heart of the city - an easy 8-10 minute walk. Friendly and helpful owners who had plenty of suggestions of places to eat and places to visit, particularly as I was travelling with my 7 year old grandson. We had an upstairs studio which I imagine was quieter than being downstairs as there... More

Room was clean, quiet and a decent size. Hotel is close to the center of town and attractions. Hosts were friendly when I checked in and checked out. They were also helpful in recommending a great cafe for breakfast.

Located approximately ten minutes walk from the centre of town, and a ten minute drive to to Ahuriri waterfront precinct, this motel is a good value place to stay. Our room was very clean, comfortable and had kitchenette facilities. Free WiFi (quota amount only). Our friendly host provided helpful suggestions about where to dine in Napier. Free parking available on... More

At Fountain Court we found our little studio to be very comfortable . It was good to have a spacious bathroom with a bathtub as well as a shower. We were glad that we had warm sunny weather as our only table and chairs to sit and eat at were sited outside our door. Eating out there felt rather like... More

In comparison with some other motor lodges we looked at this was the best. Away from the noise of the main road, very clean and neat and quite modern with plentiful amenities. Guest laundry is a helpful addition too. A well equipped kitchen and the beds look comfortable. Friendly helpful owners make this a top choice in Napier.

I have tried a number of places to stay in Napier during 2013/14 but once I found this one, I haven't changed. I will be there again this coming weekend and this will be my 6th time in 9-months. Great value for money.

Good parking. No outside space so people sit in the car park in the evenings. A bit tricky carrying the bags up the outside stairs. Can be a bit noisy when the children are playing in the car park. Signs of recent renovation.

Room was a good size, but it was musty smelling and there was no air con. The bed was possibly the best we have slept in. We like to swim in the morning - but the pool is locked until 10am. The host said that is because the chemicals get automatically put in at 9am every day. Perhaps it would... More

Hi Maree Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you had a great nights sleep and hopefully enjoyed Napier. Due to the pool being located next to all of our large family units it is closed at 8 pm so as not to disturb families with young children. You mentioned that it would be... More

This cheery, spotless, well-equipped motel topped the charts of places we stayed while touring New Zealand. We walked a couple of blocks to reach the esplanade which offered a lovely, garden-studded seaside walk into downtown. Couldn't ask for a better location, friendlier desk staff or nicer experience. This is the place to stay in Napier.
