Cedar Court Motel
Ranked #29 of 46 Hotels in Napier
Reviewed April 28, 2014

We just spent 3 nights at the Cedar Court in Napier. We were met by the knowledgeable and friendly owners, who we found very approachable throughout our stay. The motel is situated across the road from Ahuriri estuary, which was perfect for an early morning walk. Also there is a beach a couple of minutes drive away; another destination for a bracing walk in the sea air. The city centre is also just a few minutes drive. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and comfortable, with a double bed, two singles, a couch, a good sized dinner table and a flat-screen TV with full Sky access. As it says on the tin the Cedar Court Motel suited us perfectly.

Room Tip: We were in room 7. No problem parking and if there was noise from trucks, as other people have menti...

We have just spent a night at Cedar Court in Napier and were extremely happy with the accommodation. Although the units are dated, the new owners are gradually refurbishing them and ask for suggestions or any problems to be pointed out. The beds were very comfortable, the 'extras' such as gels, soaps etc were of a high standard. Warm fluffy towels; a brilliant shower and very friendly hosts made a stay a pleasure.
If you're on a budget this motel is great value for money.
Thank you Ken & Jo

Napier was pretty much full due to the Horse of the Year event in Hastings. I booked in to the Cedar Court due to good reviews and I was not disappointed. Positives - very friendly and welcoming, spotlessly clean, free wifi and plenty of Sky channels, good location near waterfront with views across river. Negatives, not many. More basic than some but good value when you consider that limited availability in town so they could have put the prices up and still have been full. Rooms could be better sound proofed - we heard next door quite a bit but was not a problem as was not overly late or early.

new owners Ken & Jo are very cool to deal with and very friendly ,In saying that I never had any problems with the old owners as I have been staying here one night every 4th week for the last 8 years, as I 'am up in the bay every month for business, being on a main road I have never had any problems with traffic noise, rooms are always very clean and the new sky has 50+ channels which is great as is the WIF I would recommend staying here to everyone I know.

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights over Art Deco weekend. It was our first stay at this motel as our usual one was booked. The apartment was spotless and the welcome we received exceptionally warm and friendly. Ken and Jo are great hosts and a pleasure to deal with. For anyone seeking a motel a short drive out of the city this one is perfect. We will be back.

I can't believe it! Just because I am about to book yet another stay here, I realised I had forgotten to leave a review for the last time we stayed. Let me start by saying this motel was under new management when we last went, and the new owners were wonderful! They were not only polite, they went beyond the call of duty, helping us to take our bags to our room and other wee gestures. We felt they were the perfect hosts, and hope they will stay running the place for years to come, as we will need to visit Napier many times more in the coming years. The room was clean and tidy, the kitchen had all the utensils, crockery and cutlery one would desire, the bathroom had lovely freebies, and was clean and fresh. The bed was comfortable, the noise levels low. I see the fish and chip shop has had a mention...totally agree, it is a goody, we had a dinner there....which also involves a nice wee walk near the seaside, Really felt this place was value for money, with helpful and caring owners. I am booking my husband in again for March, so will speak to you on the phone! Thanks for making what was an awkward visit, really lovely.

I visit Napier on business on a regular 6 weekly call cycle and always stay at Cedar Court. Both the old owners, Margaret and Bibby, and the new owners, Ken and Jo, are always very welcoming and helpful. I usually have a studio which is nice and roomy, warm in winter, and clean.

I have recommended it to overseas visitors who have stayed there and loved it.

The excellent fish and chip shop nearby is a bonus.
