Our booking for this motel was made by a travel organisation, and it was not at all what we were looking for. It is located well out of Napier itself, in Taradale. As tourists, it was not close to the things we wanted to see. It would be better suited to people in the area on business or looking for... More

I stayed here during a work trip and it was the best motel I've stayed at for awhile! The rooms are very well appointed. Comfortable beds, quiet rooms and a spa bath made me very comfortable. Great to have a nice tidy kitchenette too. The manager was very friendly and we enjoyed the cooked breakfast delivered to our rooms. Very... More

Clean and tidy motel, with nice fresh linen. A little tired and possibly need of a bit of a makeover. Sky didn't work that well in our room, but others in our group had no problems. Friendly staff and room provided everything we needed. I thought it was overpriced compared to other places we have stayed.

Stayed in a studio unit. Good clean room with comfy bed. Air conditioned and with sky TV . Well located for central Taradale. Plenty of parking but parking can be a bit tight if near the office Very helpful manager.

We were made very welcome at this motel and the manager was most helpful. He advised us on places of interest and gave us good directions to find our way. The accommodation was first class and the jacuzzi bath was a bonus. The unit we had had one bedroom with twin beds and there was a king size bed in... More

We were in the Hawkes Bay to attend a concert at Black Barn winery, Havelock North. We selected the Ballina as they still had reasonable rates when available accommodation in HB was in limited supply due to multiple events that weekend meaning very high demand. It was also central for us with family in Napier, and friends in Twyford- within... More

My husband & I stayed here for 1 night on our trip around NZ and found it to be neat and clean and with many comforts for a "home away from home" experience. It is perfectly situated for visiting several of the area's wineries, including NZ's oldest winery, "Mission" & "Church Road." Good customer service and the best TV selection... More

I have stayed here twice now on business. While the rooms are modest they are clean. The best thing for me on both occasions has been the helpfulness of the manager. He has gone out of his way to meet my requirements. Thanks

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of Hawke's Bay's newest luxury air-conditioned motels - the place where those in the know choose to spend their time while staying in Napier. What makes the BEST WESTERN Ballina Motel special is our small size allows us to focus on those important little details and provide personal service to ensure that your stay is both a relaxing and memorable experience. All our spacious rooms are air-conditioned (to provide some relief from Hawke's Bay's high summer temperatures and warmth in winter), and furnished to a high standard of quality which is reflected in our 4 Stars rating. Our quiet residential location (there are no crashing waves, barking seals, trucks or trains thundering through the night to keep you awake) ensures that you arise fully refreshed to take on the new day's challenges and fully enjoy the great Hawke's Bay lifestyle and glorious weather. Centrally located in Taradale midway between Napier and Hastings city centers - ensures that you are close to all of Hawke's Bay's diverse range of activities and attractions. Within easy walking distance of the cafe's restaurants, bars, and the main shopping center of Taradale. If you are looking for more than a standard motel, but not the excessive expense of a hotel then you are in the right place. Our accommodation makes the ideal base for visitors to Hawke's Bay. ... more   less
