Jane and Hugh are always very welcoming and make the effort to remember my name and which rooms I prefer. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed, and they even supply great plunger coffee! Beds are extremely comfortable and rooms are quiet. I won't stay anywhere else!

We had a very comfortable stay at this Lodge. The rooms were spacious and very clean and tidy, and Hugh was very friendly and accommodating. The Lodge is in an excellent location with the beach close by. We would definately stay here when we come to Napier and can reommend this Lodge.

I really enjoyed staying here. The motel is really nice and welcoming, it's priced right, the staff friendly and helpful when required. The room was spacious and very clean. I had a spa, good wifi, Lcd tv and a private courtyard. I'd recommend this place to anyone, I really felt comfortable here and liked how quiet it was.

We stayed here as a family of six in two rooms. We were very impressed with the facilities available, such as two flatscreen tvs in one of the rooms, as well as a large spa bath. Everything was clean and tidy. We were most impressed that unlike most motels, the hot water seemed to be unlimited. Even after we used the spa baths, there was still hot water left over for everyone else to shower. The hosts were also very friendly and helpful. We will definitely recommend this motel to anyone looking to stay in Napier.

We stayed at the Best Western Fairly Motor Lodge during our recent visit to New Zealand, The location is close to the beach and walking distance to shops and local attractions. Rooms are comfortable and well equiped.
Jane and Hugh Gordon welcome there guest with a great smile and make you feel right at home. we will recommend the Fairly to all our friends and family traveling New Zealand and will never stay anywhere else if traveling in that area.

Keep up the good word and all the best.

I stayed here with my wife and two kids as part of a road trip around the North Island. The location is close to the beach, and the Napier coastal pathway runs nearby as well which is great for cycling, walking or rollerblading. The unit was quiet, very clean and well equipped, and the staff were nice to deal with. The kids enjoyed the spa bath, we enjoyed the king-size and comfortable bed. Napier is a charming city to visit, with a great outdoors of paths, gardens and fountains, and plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants. The Westshore location is a 5 minute drive to the CBD, but there are are restaurants a comfortable walking distance away.
