“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Hugh was very friendly, helpful, and welcoming. We are Canadians travelling your beautiful country and this was definitely one of our best stops. The unit was modern, clean and comfortable.

Thank you for your time and I am pleased you enjoyed the wonderful area we are located in.With the Estuary ,the beach and bike and cycle way. And within walking distance of Ahuriri, with all the restaurants,galleries -even a new intimate picture theatre make it an ideal spot for a few days away

Lovely, clean motel walking distance from restaurants and Ahuriri shops. Rooms are spacious, bathroom very good. Walking distance from the beach and walkways. No hassle when we decided to stay only 3 nights instead of the 4 we had booked.
The only things is the rooms are a bit hot at night, even with the windows open.

Room Tip: Try to get one at the back, not on the roadside, it could be noisy

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.
