My husband, grand-daughter (5), very old dog (17 years old) and I needed somewhere to stay over-night at very short notice and the Fern Motel was recommended. We were extremely impressed with the friendly reception lady, the motel room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean plus it was located very close to a supermarket and takeaways. We will be recommending... More

They allowed us to check in early which is helpful for us since we have a toddler. Friendly staff, very approachable and their rooms are clean and well maintained. Good housekeeping too! Great location and near the Hastings / Napier motorway. Will definitely stay here again when going back to Napier. I could say that this is "Our home in... More

Nice visit, apartments are small, but fine for families. We had the twin room, and small but well appointed. Nice hosts and the wifi actually worked!! We would stay again and try out the pool which looked really nice if it wasn't 10 degrees outside.

Thank you, We supply a all in one shower gel/shampoo/conditioner dispenser in the showers. All our other rooms have shelves for guests to use in the showers. Room 3 however has a disability seat and we have deliberately kept that shower free of shelves. More

オーナー夫妻がとても親切でフレンドリーな、まさしくキウィの方達で、本当にありがたかったです。部屋も充分な広さで、子供たちは敷地内にある大きなトランポリンで飽きずに遊んでいました。徒歩圏内に大きなスーパーがあり、主要道路へもすぐで、ネイピアタウンとタラデールのどちらへもすぐ出られる立地条件の良さと、とても便利でした。 The owner family are very, very kind and friendly. I really appreciate their kindness. The room was clean and spacious with comfortable beds. Our kids did love the playground. There is a big supermarket nearby within a walk distance. Good access to main roads. Conveniently situated to reach both Napier and Taradale. People, rooms, and location, totally excellent!!

Made to feel very welcome on arrival. Had stayed here 16 months before and was quite happy to stay here again. The motel was handy to our friends we were visiting and also not far from Hastings where we also visited friends.

From the time I arrived I felt welcomed and the unit I had was as good as the welcome. Comfortable beds with great duvets. Good facilities including a heat pump which one of us needed to use one day as she was very cold. Thank you Carolyn and Steve - wish I had had time to swim. Great having that... More
