Loved this motel...was spacious and comfortable. Was only there one night but would definitely stay again for longer. Close to town, my room had tv in lounge area (which was small) and bedroom. Spa bath and shower and pool. Was a lovely place to stay.

We have just had three nights here. Frequent visitors to the Hawkes Bay and this is possibly the nicest we have stayed at. Could not be faulted for cleanliness. It was so close to hastings city. Lovely swimming pool and our apartment had seperate bedroom - well worth that We will not by pass this place again

Clean tidy and modern style. Rooms are not very sound proof could hear people next door. One night very noisy asian family and was going to complain but people left next day and was good after this, even though we could hear people. Very close to main shops which is great.

Love this place. The bed was so lovely to sleep in - like I was wrapped in a silky layer. Was relatively quiet with no disturbances. Loved the kitchen facilities which allowed me to cook dinner before laying on the bed to read my exciting book.

The accommodation there is clean and rooms reasonable. Not top class accommodation, nothing special, but nothing wrong either, and given 3 stars in terms of value for money. About 10 mins walk to the city centre (including options for breakfast). Close to railway track, but we only heard 1 train.
