We have just returned from spending 9 nights at the Frimley Lodge. The room was just what we needed. Clean & comfortable & central to Hastings CBD. We were very surprised to find that the rooms are serviced every day for long term patrons. Will definitely be staying here again when we visit our friends & family in Hawkes Bay.

I booked this motel way back in September. Communication from the UK, with the owners was excellent, as I wanted to confirm booking having been let down by Jason's two years ago, when we arrived in Napier for the Art Deco Weekend and no record of our booking! Gareth and his wife are excellent hosts, so friendly and helpful.Unit 10... More

Small centrally located motel in Hastings,this well maintained property has full kitchenettes in studio rooms. Beds are comfortable; staff are friendly. Although on a busy street, there is little road noise.

Very happy with our stay, room is small but perfect for a short stay. Bathroom recently renovated, very nice. Manager was friendly. Pool was clean. Would stay again. Four Square, cafes, Hell Pizza only a 10 minute walk away. Wifi not free which is the only downside but is available for a fee.

We spent a week here as a base from which to tour the area. This motel is very clean and comfortable and nothing is too much trouble for the proprietors. The room had all that we needed. We travelled with two children and found the motel location perfect for what we did. Parking is outside of your door. A Wi-Fi... More

This motel was clean and tidy - an ordinary old type of motel. It had all we want. Hate it when you get given the milk and keys from behind the desk and directed to the place to park. How difficult is it to walk over (10 meters) and be a bit chatty and welcoming. Also no excuse for torn... More

Thank you for your recent review. We apologise for the wripped net curtain. The previous night's guests were most apologetic for the damage but we were unable to get it replaced before you checked in. It is now replaced along with the curtains in that room as well. We take on board your comments about showing you the room. We... More

I know I rang rather late, which I apologised for, but I needed to find last minute accommodation for a work crew who had just come off a remote site and this was one of the few motels that still indicated rooms available in the Hawke's Bay area. The male manager replied, "we're closed" and slammed the phone down on... More

My recollection of the conversation is slightly different. I did explain that we don’t offer a 24 hour reception service and that we are not always able to offer a late night check in, I certainly did not hang up on you. More

I stayed in a small studio room. Was very impressed with the room. Very small but suited my needs. Had the usual tea and coffee supplies. Very clean, good shower, and the bed and pillows were comfortable. Would definitely stay again.
