Room was not big but sufficient and cosy, and everything we needed was there. Very clean and we were made welcome. Enough parking space and close to Napier City. We would certainly recommend and book again.

The Proprietors were extremely friendly and couldn't have been more helpful during our stay. Our room was immaculately clean, and the decor and furnishings beautiful, and the spa pool was an unexpected bonus! I would gladly recommend this motel to other travellers and wouldn't hesitate to book here again. Thank you Nigel & Helen!
