Well it's not the flashiest accommodation - the fridge is a little loud and it can be stinking hot the staff were friendly and helpful! The room had great kitchen facilities which meant we could cook breakfast rather than dine out, but it was super close so we could walk to local restaurants and bars if we wanted. Close to... More

If you don't mind the dated décor then City Close is a reasonable option for those wanting to be 5 minutes walk away from the city centre. We stayed in Unit 6 which is a smallish studio with a king size bed. There was a full kitchen with Shacklock Orion stove, microwave and which was well equipped. The only place... More

Originally 4 of us were going to stay in one room but after someone preferred their own room, and a couple of late additions to our travelling party, we had 5 people in the biggest room in the place and the other person with their own room. I think motels like this get a bit of a bad rap unfairly... More

I had a business meeting and my son was able to walk to all the activities he want to do. We were able to find our way to and from the motel to where we wanted to go with ease. The motel was clean and had everything we wanted.

Units have full kitchen and are fairly spacious. However the bathroom is tiny as, sliding doors are used to separate shower, toilet and kitchen. It has free wifi and parking space. It is walking distance to art deco streets of Napier. It was very quiet at night, you'll definitely get a good night's sleep. Owners are very nice people.

Only stayed one night here, but found the location of the motel was excellent, and the staff were friendly. It was exactly what we wanted and expected from our stay. The room was pretty clean and although some furniture was a bit outdated, that didn't cause any issues. We impressed with the room service breakfast prices, although we had other... More
