“Helpful management”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Our family group of four adults stayed here back in December and were impressed with this Motor Lodge. We had a family unit which was nice and spacious, clean and comfortable. The manager was very helpful in giving us advice in which streets to go to to look at the Art Deco architecture around Napier. He also showed us some good local walks close to the motel.
A good place to stay.

Hugh is such a great host, and the staff look after the rooms very well. The in room service provided by the local restaurant was star quality. We couldn't believe it when they brought it over, it was as if we were sitting down to dine at a table. Food was hot,yummy and well presented. Come down 1-2 twice yearly for Ironmaori and plan on staying there every year. It's great as fellow participants stay there too so we meet some awesome people as well. Audra and our Ironmaori crew

We stayed at this motel in February 2013. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly chap at reception. He showed us to our spacious apartment, which had two bedrooms with queen sized beds, a living area, kitchen area and separate bathroom. All were well appointed, clean and comfortable.

The motel is well situated, you could walk to some restaurants, but for a few dollars for a taxi you can be in Napier centre.

we had a really enjoyable stay here. I'd recommend the fairly to anyone visiting Napier.

mine host, Hugh is a most friendly and helpful person and more than happy to advise on local amenities. The accommodation is very good. Clean, modern and very comfortable and spacious and the bathroom is large and well set up with a spa bath and great shower.Very close to restaurants and bars.As a visitor from U.K. i'm sorry I cannot stay here more often.We stayed for 2 nights rather than the 1 night originally planned because we were so pleased with the motel.

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!
