Reviewed yesterday NEW

Units were tidy and clean. The pool, spa, playground and restaurant meant there were great facilities for the whole family to enjoy. Location was very central making it quick and easy to get to most of the main tourist attractions in Napier. Overall we were very happy with our choice of accommodation.

Only stayed the one night but was lovely and clean. Spacious room. Did find the pillow a little firm but that's personal preference. Also it was hard to fill up the jug as it didn't fit under the tap.

Excellent motel, great location, v helpful staff. 20 mins easy walk into town, but if you preferred a longer walk, the there is a 1.5hr walk around the port to the centre of town- v peaceful and quiet walk.

The Motel is situated close to all of the main roads in and out of Napier, and of course close to the centre of town. The room was a large one, fited out with quality furniture and fittings. It provided a quite and comfortable stay while in Napier.

Clean, tidy, comfortable. Pleasant helpful staff. Great having restaurant and pool on site. Reasonable rates. This is our second stay. This time chose a basic studio as we were only staying one night. I was surprised there was no extractor fan in the bathroom. The basic studio was fine for one night but found it difficult only being able to...

This is a great place to stay. The two bedroom units are ideal for small families and are well located at the rear of the complex right near the pool. Nice and quiet and the location is ideal for exploring the wider Napier area.

We enjoyed our stay at this clean and modern motel. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with microwave, jug, toaster. Modern bathroom with separate shower. No climate control as listed in hotel confirmation, and sound of does carry when windows left open. Staff friendly and accommodating. We did not use the outdoor pool, although other families appeared to enjoy this...
