A bright and airy motel with friendly owners. We stayed one night on Queens Birthday weekend and Judy was happy to help us choose a restaurant and made the booking for us. In addition, she gave us a map of directions of how to get there. (The restaurant was very nice.)

A fantastic place to stay. Lovely and quiet in the night. Very clean and comfortable. Unexpected free paper. The owners were very pleasant and helpful. Helped direct us to some of the best places to eat and shop.

This is a dated complex. The rooms are not up to current expected standard. There is little storage for clothing and personal effects. The proprietors were terse and helped begrudgingly. The kitchen facilities were satisfactory. The cleaning staff were excellent but their efforts were spoiled by the managers attitude.

Went to Napier Art deco on business ( we own an antique/art deco company) and stayed here for 2 nights. Nice and clean, swimming pool, free paper, housekeeping (don't always get that in a motor inn) and handy to everything. Would definitely stay again.

I've stayed here on several occasions and continue to select them when working in the Hawke's Bay area. Warwick and Judy are great hosts and are accommodating for business travellers. Accommodation options are valuable when there are several work colleagues to accommodate.

My husband and I stayed here during Christmas holiday for 3 nights. Excellent reception, rooms were very clean and spacious. The salt water swimming pool was perfect on a hot summers day. Would highly recommend the Valdez and would definitely stay here again.

Quiet and spacious and conveniently located. Clean and comfortable with good parking and well-equipped units. Friendly owner who gave us a good price for 2 units and provided late checkout for us too as we had a funeral to attend later in the day.

The services was great and the room very clean and comfortable. It was set back from the road so nice and quiet. The room was well equipped and lovely toiletries and nice fluffy towels, even a heated towel rail. The cancellation policy was fair unlike another property across the road. The parking was easy and close to town. Nice outdoor... More
