I stayed here once for a weekend. Yes it was noisy but to be fair I was warned before booking. Room was adequate and a good price. However, not worth the sleepless nights, literally felt like trucks were driving through the wall. Highly recommended paying extra for a rear unit.

We found this motel to be excellent value for money. We had a friendly welcome and found the room to be spotlessly clean and well equipped for our needs. We had booked in for one night but decided to stay for another. We would stay again.

Stayed in one of the smallest units, but despite being compact it was very comfortable, and spotlessly clean. The host and hostess are very friendly and helpful. Free WiFi, laundry, a nice garden area with a pool and children's play area. Had a microwave and sufficient equipment for a quick meal, no washing up facility, but no problem the hosts... More

I'm not that one who would give a bad review for a motel, but I disliked my stay! I am really disappointed. We stayed in a studio apartment even though the place was fairly clean it did not have a nice atmosphere! On arrival we were given our room key and told which room we were in, the owner didn't...

A little out of the center but modern , well equipped rooms with microwave, kettle, toaster,dishes and cutlery. Family run by pleasant and helpful hosts. Close to the town, shops and restraunts this is an excellent place to use as a base for visiting the area.

I have chosen to stay here everytime I come up to Napier / Hastings simpy because Grant (the owner) makes you feel welcome, takes the time to know your name and provide a very professional and personalised service. There are a variety of rooms. They are kept clean, tidy and sutitable for a single or family stay. Location is perfect... More

The rooms are a decent size and all have basic amenities although the couch in the living room was old and had no support. Rooms were clean and it was no problems grabbing extra milk, sugar etc if needed from reception. This motel is about 20 mins walk to Hastings City centre and has car parks outside each room. Try...

This was a nice little motor lodge style place. Really friendly and accomodating reception team,very clean rooms,plasma tv,kitchenttes and nice bathrooms. Rooms closest to the road tend to be a bit noisy with passing traffic esp early morning but this place is great value for money if a little dated in decor. Would def stay again.

Stayed in the studio room which was the closest to the motel office, room very small but modern and no frills decor, tv and fan was tiny and barely worthwhile having, small bar fridge with tea and coffee and cookie. Bathroom very clean. Road noise was a bit of a problem in the morning, but otherwise it's a nice budget... More
