“lovely stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

We had bought a deal for a 1 night stay. Wow - we were pleasantly surprised to open the door to our room. The top floor, a spacious room with the seaviews. After a long drive, it was delightful to soak in the spa bath while watching a movie! We woke early the next morning, so opened the curtains and enjoyed the beautiful sunrise. We will definately be back!

Room Tip: For views - ask for the top floor. For quiet - ask for units around the back. All awesome

We stayed only one night, but we really enjoy to stay here.
Close to beach, handy to town, so good location!
And the owners are so kind and friendly.
The room is so clean and confortable and we enjoyed spa in the room many times.

The owners of this beachfront property were absolutely delightful. Great location, everything within walking distance, and lovely ocean view. The room was spacious with kitchenette, and bed was very comfortable; next time will spend a few more nights in Napier!

Excellent location directly opposite the ocean and on the main Marine Parade in Napier. From the warm welcome to our departure the overall feeling at the Beach Front Motel was warm and welcoming. The room was clean and nicely furnished - we elected to have one of the one bedroom rooms which had twin beds in the bedroom and a king bed in the main lounge area. As there was only two of us we used the bedroom to store all our bags and clothes which provided us with heaps of room to enjoy the main room.

We had a lounge area within the room and were able to enjoy a wine as we looked over the ocean at the end of each day and breakfast with the same joy. Overall the experience was excellent. However, there are winding iron stairs going up to the first and second level which are exposed to the weather. Further, in the morning people going up and down in the early hours cause the stairs to rattle and this can be heard in the room. Had we slept in the twin room this would have been a significant issue. Fortunately, being out of season meant that the interruptions were not as profound as they could have been.

On an additional note this Motel is well positioned to explore the wine country and to walk to some excellent local restaurants.

Four of us stayed here in April, we had accommodation facing out the back so no view, the rooms are really lovely and big everything you could want, including a big spa which we didnt use as we were only there one night. We would highly recommend this accommodation but if i return i would book the rooms with the ocean view.Easy walking distance along the beach front to restaurants.

We stayed here with friends and simply through the luck of the draw we got the first floor room, whilst they got the second floor. I think we got the better deal although both rooms were spacious, clean and well--equipped with balconies facing the sea. We had a large in-room spa bath which was also very nice. A little more expensive than most other places that we stayed but a little nicer and more comfortable than some too so that's fair enough. The staff/managers were very friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay here again.
