My mum and I had a great overnight stay here. The room was warm, spacious and very clean. The location is nice, overlooking the estuary too. We arrived quite late in the evening but our check-in was not at all rushed - very friendly service.

Great places to go for walk across the road - also within a minute to go for a walk along beachfront. The owners were very helpful and friendly. Sky TV... More

Our unit being a ground floor level, did not have a view like some, but was easily accessed, and we were allocated close-by parking space for our two vehicles. The friendly manager personally led us to the unit, and turned on the heater... More

As soon as we arrived you could tell how friendly and helpful the owners were. The room was spotless with wifi and sky tv. We were given a recommendation for dinner and boy what a great place to eat. Our breakfast was delivered promptly also.

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.
