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

We stayed in a split level unit with the bedroom on the upper level, which had a balcony. There was also a small enclosed seating area on the ground floor at the rear. The location is a good 20 minute walk into the city centre, but there are a couple of watering holes on the way. Facilities in the motel... More

We stayed here for a night recently. We were impressed with the high standard of the room for the cost and felt it was good value for money. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and felt comfortable staying here. Nice and close to the centre approx. 5 min. drive.
