For a studio the room was a good size. It was disappointing that the towels were not changed on the third day of our stay nor was the unit vacuumed. It would have been better if there had been a small sink to do dishes rather than have to use the hand basin in the bathroom. A plus was the...

Room was lovely, light and clean. Was in a very quiet neighbourhood which was perfect. Nice and close to everything including walking distance to McLean park to which we went to the cricket one night!! Overall would stay again and recommend

Friendly Hosts, Next time maybe two rooms due to the snoring but that isn't a fault of the hosts, great environment, will stay again! Central Location and, All and All Great, Clean pool and most different to any unit is the fact they have a bar and restaurant on the grounds

Napier is a great city to stay on holidays- lots of activity for the kids- for the sandy beach you need to drive 40 min but that worth it! The town centre is beautiful- palm city motel was a great choice ! Very welcoming staff, room clean and good location !

Courteous, helpful and efficient.. First choice to go back to. This was my third visit. When l left my used washing behind they were instantaneous in notifying me and arranging its return. Ideally placed location wise, having central proximity but ease of access.

Stayed for just one night and room was a good size for the 3 of us. Having 2 bathrooms was an added bonus, only thing that was negative was bad TV reception. Otherwise Great location, nice and clean as well. Would definitely stay again when in Napier
