We stayed in a Deluxe family room. It was comfortable and very clean. Parking outside the room. Our room had everything we needed, and had good wifi. Only a couple of minutes drive to Napier shops. This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and will definitely be back.

Faultless service from the team at the Fern. Top notch suite with everything in great nick. Suite was spotless when we arrived and well serviced during our long weekend stay. Access to the pool and BBQ area was a bonus for our needs.
