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.

We were in Unit 3 Family Deluxe Unit. There for 2 nights and it was raining both days. Had a bit of an accident in our unit the motelier was very accommodating with the clean up, again apologies. Our motel room was clean, just found the furniture overcrowded or cramped the unit. Also there wasn't a shelf in the shower... 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

The Fern Motel turned out to be a very good choice: clean, comfortable room, own parking in front of the door, private little terrace, complete bathroom and kitchen and last but not least the hosts are very friendly and welcoming. We had a very pleasant stay just for 1 night but we will be back!

We had 2x kids & dog and loved it. It was a modern, clean & spacious area with the added benefit of a grassy area out back. It felt very private, comfortable & homely. The kids loved that there was a playground. We look forward to our next visit.☺
