Just arrived back from a girls trip to the Hawkes Bay and this town really pulled out all this stops for us. We had stunning weather, spoilt for choice on wines and devine food. We were even treated to the annual santa parade. However one of this compares to our stay at Marineland Motel. The room was externally clean, literally... More

At $200 per night-expected slightly more. Would never stay here again. Went to order breakfast-got given a secondary menu. We asked if we could upgrade breakfast- it... More

This motel is easily accessed from the major roads connecting Napier with the rest of the country, though it is quite far away (not-walking distance) to the city centre. It is right next to the ocean, though and there are some nice restaurants in the marina nearby. The rooms are large and functional, by no means luxurious, though this is... More

Spotless unit with everything one required. Because of a mobility issue we were provided with the disabled unit which included a huge bathroom with wet floor shower. But the highlight was the super comfy king size bed which I wanted to take home with me! Thanks for a great stopover.

Marineland Motel was a really enjoyable experience. The management and service were both excellent. The cleanliness of the motel was exceptional....attention to detail amazing. Breakfast was included in our package which was nicely prepared and the adjoining restaurant very high quality. We lengthened our stay as we enjoyed it so much.

Great motel. There is a heated swimming pool which the children used for the whole afternoon. Nice big bathroom and comfortable beds. There is also a area with birds and a children's play area. Some of the units had sea views.

Although not within walking distance to town this motel was very well positioned and clean and quiet. Good laundry facilities, comfortable bed and a very helpful receptionist. Very nice walk along the esplanade close by as well as a short stroll across the bridge to local restaurants and pub.
