“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2010

All you would expect for the price, clean, comfortable & spacious. Very helpful with places to eat and in a good location close to "Arkwrights" who were not open all hours. Jokes apart, this place restored my faith in Motels.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2010

We were suggested this older style motel by the people at the Visitors Centre in Napier and it lived up to its recommendation. It is decorated in the "Art Deco" style of the town, the rooms are typical of the older style of Motel but very clean & functional.
The owners were so helpful and suggested trips & restaurants. We took advantage of the meal at the RSA - a 5 min walk from the Motel - fabulous value.
If in Napier, a MUST is booking into the Art Deco town walk, hosted by a Committee member (we had Peter) and so interesting with his comments & knowledge. This Motel was such great value - and so clean & comfortable. My huisband mentioned that he was going for a swim in the pool and the owner commented that it wasn't heated as its now "off-season" for swimming. He still went in, was cold, but clean - and he had his exercise !!

This is a very nice lodge currently with new owners. They are friendly and helpful and the place is clean and comfortable. iI is in a great location just a few minutes walk into town and the lovely Marine Parade. Plenty of parking available. The pool looked very dirty when we were there so we did not attempt to go in.

Good value hotel in a nice location. It was very close to the restaurants, art-decco city center, and beach.

We got to Napier a bit late at night so most of the restaurants were closed but had dinner at a Jazz resturants called "Take Five" which was fantastic.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2008

We stayed at the Fountain Court in late 2007 and were very disappointed. Very plain and overpriced at $ 145 for the night. We even had some cock roaches and when we told management the response was 'we had a problem and thought we had got rid of them'. The pool was a joke and looks so much better in the pics. The best value places to stay in Napier are the B and B's on Marine Parade. Actually anywhere other than this..

  • Liked — That we only stayed 1 night

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2007

Stayed one night at the end of October. Reasonable value and in a good location as only a short walk into town and sea front.

Only negative was that the room was on the cold side.

Would recommend Take Five Restaurant (Live Jazz) for dinner
