“One of the best motels we have stayed in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

The rooms are very spacious and well presented, and impeccably clean. One of the best nights sleep we have ever had away from home. The owners were very helpful, showing us to our room and explaining how things in the room worked. A rare level of service in this day and age! Great location. Just an easy walk to local restaurants and very central. This would have to be one of the best motels we have stayed in and as good if not better than a lot of hotels. Will definitely be back.

Great location for the sports arena; clean and well presented rooms, great service. Nothing was too much trouble and the owners were very helpful. This was booked for visitors from out of town and they were most impressed.

We have stayed at the Ballina Motel in Napier several times now, both for the Mission Concert and again for a weeks holiday. The Ballina is well situated for the Mission Concert - they will take you up to the Mission for a small charge, and it is close enough to be able to walk back afterwards. The units are clean and spacious and well equipped. Taradale shopping and restaurants are easily within walking distance and Napier City is only a short drive. Our only compliant is the way they hike the prices up for the Mission Concert Weekend, but then we have found accommodation over this weekend is very difficult to find and every one seems to think it is ok to double the usual rate....

Once again, another excellent stay at Ballina. I am a regular visitor to Napier and always stay at the Ballina for the week I am there. The rooms are always clean and well presented and the sevice is fantastic. The owners are always prepared to help make your stay enjoyable and will offer friendly advice about places to visit in Napier - even booking for you if necessary. Comfortable, clean, friendly, close to amenities - what more could you ask for!....Awesome place. I look forward to my next visit.

We stayed at the Ballina for 2 nights recently and found the place very clean and tidy. From the moment we arrived to when we left there were no problems and the Unit we had was lovely. The bed was very comfortable and the walk in shower was heaven.
