Awesome place to stay with just wonderful friendly hosts. The room was a little smaller than it looked on the net but it was as clean and well appointed as the pictures showed with quality furnishings. The units have everything you need for a very comfortable stay. A great quiet location. We had an absolutely pleasant stay and will definitely... More

We checked into At the Rocks 3 days after the Christchurch earthquake, and we were uncertain about what to do about the reservations we had in Christchurch for the end of our trip. David got right on the phone for us, and urged us to make the necessary alternate plans; without his help, we might have waited until it was... More

We turned up quite late for a one night stay and were met by absolutely wonderful hosts! We got to the room and the heating was on to warm the room for us (it was freezing outside). We had requested a cot which was provided free of charge and the hosts took it upon themselves to also give us a... More

During our staying in New Zealand, my spouse and I stayed in various motels, but this came tops due to the excellent service provided by the Manager, David. We appreciated his friendly and helpful manner, advising us of good places to eat such as the Dutch fish cafe, and visiting places such as Cape Kidnappers (gannet colony) & Haku Falls,... More

We spent 2 nights in this lovely motel, the best of our 4 weeks touring North Island. The room was beautiful and very well maintained. We had a spa bath in the roomy bathroom. The hosts made us very welcome and suggested places to visit. On their advice we had a lovely lunch at the Mission. I recommend this motel... More

Take the hostess's recommendations for restaurants, you will not be disappointed. Our unit had a nice private patio off the bedroom. There's a laundry and gym. Everything was very clean, well maintained and up-to-date. Out kitchenette had no cooktop, but it did have an electric pan, fridge and microwave and there was a covered BBQ. Even with no vacancy and... More

We have stayed at a lot of places in New Zealand and this place is better than the five star hotel we just checked out of in Auckland! Better than any of the best hotel chains in the USA. The towels were soft, room was silent & dark, and everything was spotless. The owners are courteous and helpful. The pride... More

Wow, what a place. We were there for one night in Napier, while attending a friend's wedding at the Old Church in Meeanee (cheers M&L - had a great time). I booked At the Rocks because it was only a little bit more than the places that look like absolute dives from the photos and backed up by reviews. This... More

We stayed for one night, and found it to be very good value. The room was spotless and quiet at night. The reception staff were friendly and we will definitely book here again when we return to Napier.
