Stayed here for 2 nights. Overall, it is a good stay. The premise is just across the shoreline. One could walk the shoreline and enjoy the nice view of napier costal. This is not one of those ordinary hotels. Rather, it is really like those motor inns you find in the US. However, it is a very nice establishment. The... More

I stayed at the Edgewater Motor Lodge on Saturday 26 April 2014 with my elderly parents. They gave us a downstairs room which was lovely, clean and spacious. Parking was a little tight but nothing I could not negotiate. Very pleasant and helpful Manager. We found this motel perfectly situated for our needs and would stay here again without a... More

My partner and I stayed in here for two nights, we found the place spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable. We got a down stairs spa unit over looking the sea across the road, a little place to sit outside. The parks here are abit tricky but you could park outside your unit road side. Very enjoyable stay ♥

This motel was just fine for my husband and me for one night in Napier. The room is smallish but light from the ocean-facing windows. It is very clean and the bed is comfortable. The price was quite reasonable and there is free wifi. Only downside is street noise but that will lessen at night.

Proved a bit tricky to find a place on Marine parade with a twin room and a view. The only option was downstairs from which the view is fairly limited but could be worse and the price was OK. As noted in other reviews the parking area is pretty tight but better there than on the road I reckon. Normal... More

Clean and tidy , great location. Parking is extremely difficult , we had a regular size sedan. Others tried to get larger cars in and it's not impossible but nearly so to fit in the super narrow parks and squeeze between the building and parked cars. Get in late and you have to park on the street. Wheel chair access... More

Self and spouse had a one-night stay here while on an 8-day drive around the East Coast. Our ground-floor room was very acceptable though a little dark in late afternoon. Furniture and linen were good and clean. While at the water-front, view from ground-floor is restricted firstly by the security railings and then by vehicle/s parked at the kerbside, the... More

We stayed in a superior studio upstairs, the room was spacious, clean and well supplied with kitchen facilities, huge bathroom, and quality furnishings. The bed was comfortable, and the views from our private balcony impressive. We were asked as we checked in if we would like a newspaper delivered and given the choice of which one we would prefer, also... More

In a very great location on the Marine Parade with lovely views of the sea. We had a first floor lower cost room for two, although they can set it up for three. The view from the balcony was lovely - the Marine Parade park across the road, the graceful line of Norfolk pines along the park and the eastern... More
