At the Rocks is on the edge of the Ahuriri Estuary, a lovely quiet spot and a great place to relax after spending the day looking around Napier. Not right in town, but a very short drive away, I preferred this location to somewhere right in the thick of it and would definitely stay here again. Be sure to do... More

Needed to have some sleep and relax and this was the palce for that. We had an excellent double spa bath with modern bathromm and very comfy bed. Really worth the extra effort and wasnt expensive either-under $300 for 3 nights, though winter rate.

Excellent location with the estuary just over the road and the beach just along the street. Restaurants are close by - or a short walk, anyway - but this place is not close to town if that is what you want. The man at reception was very helpful and we found the room to be spacious and to have all... More

Well maintained Motel with very friendly and helpful Management. We had a 2 bedroom family room which was very nice, clean and sufficient in size for all four of us. The boys loved the bunks. Whatever I would have to complain about is not worth mentioning and would have surely been changed by the management if I would have asked... More

Was thankful to get accommodation here as most places were fully booked for the Art Deco weekend. Nice enough place and clean but basic without frills. There's no air conditioning so it was a bit uncomfortable with just a fan in the summer heat. Ventilation was just with two windows that couldn't open fully behind heavy curtains - so we... More

You were very lucky to get accommodation over Deco weekend,you chose our cheapest studio, there is a regular bus service on the hour to Napier. There are of course plenty of taxis if you turn up without a car. We are 8mins drive from the centre city so the walk in sweltering heat must have been taxing for you. All... More

We stayed here for one night in a very nice suite,clean and very comfortable. Spa bath was a bonus,somewhere to sit outside which was lovely as it was a hot evening. Lovely 15 minute walk to the harbour with a good choice of restuarants. All in all good value for money,we would recommend as a place to stay in Napier

I booked a night here at less than 24 hours notice over the net. Based on the price (less than $90) I was a little apprehensive but thought 'Oh well, it is only one night'. On arrival I was greeted by David and handed the keys to a very neat, beautifully clean room with a sitting/dining area, kitchenette, a bathroom... More

Nice modern motel located across from the yacht harbor, 1 block from the beach. About a 15 minute walk around the harbor to the restaurants of West Quay. We had a large family unit with 2 double beds, a twin, and a bunk. The whole thing was heated by a single portable space heater and it was cold inside when... More
