Booked for a two night stay at the Motel. Although located some way out of town the room was spacious with a separate bedroom and a well fitted kitchen area. Just up the road was a shopping area with a well stocked Supermarket.
The owner was very friendly and helpful. There was also a free 6 hour access to the internet, something that larger hotel chains should note.

A superb motel that had everything to make our stay in the Hawkes Bay a perfect trip. Our family (2 adults and 3 children) have been travelling through NZ and the Colonel Lodge Motel was the best accommodation we experienced in NZ.
The kids absolutely loved the place with so much to do - the pool, games room, spa pool and bbq area.
The rooms are well set out and have all requirements to make you feel at home, beds are comfortable and the quiet surrounds ensure a good night sleep.
The hosts were superb, helping set up a family bbq, running swimming boot camps, making the whole family feel welcome without being overbearing.
Looking forward to our next visit.

Stayed here with family (6 adults and 1 child) over Christmas recently and thought this place was great. We stayed in the house out the back which was well appointed and spotlessly clean. As other reviewers have mentioned the service here is fantastic - The hosts brought over treats on Christmas Eve, and went above and beyond to find a shirt I realised I'd left behind, which they are posting back. Would be more than happy to stay here again in the future!

Visiting Napier en route from Wellington to Taupo and had an overnight. Accomodation both outside and inside was spotless, gardens and greenery kept well whilst inside it was clean, sparkling and contained all necessities. Staff very friendly and helpful. Next door the RS Club is good for meals and a social evening. A very good experience!

Stayed here 2 nights with family for a family wedding nearby. The unit was well designed, well equipped and very clean plus crisp cotton sheets and very effective blackout blinds in the bedrooms so that the sun didn't wake you up if you didn't want it to. The garden setting was lovely with outdoor tables and chairs outside the units to extend your living space. The kids made good use of the outdoor pool as the weather was very warm. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The 11am checkout was a bonus too.

Older couple here for 2 nights for a wedding at the nearby Mission we were bowled over by the total commitment to excellence this family-run - since 1969 - motel offered its guests. Starting with the decor of our unit 9, designed for two to four people, every detail was above the expected standard - from the cleanliness of it all, the beautiful kitchen and dining utensils, lovely decor with graceful low-key colour schemes and a few tasteful bright accents and carefully chosen furniture. For our friend in the living room the pulldown bed from the wall was wonderful - easy for an older person to set in place, bed all made up ready to go. Main bedroom with very comfy kingsize bed and big generous pillows, furniture where you needed it and the size one needs when travelling, not too big or too small. Bathroom decor with excellent lighting, thoughtful makeup removers, loads of linen, soap, shampoo, hairdryer and good mirrors, and the whole unit was designed by someone who really knew what they were doing. I'd say, a woman! Owners and staff were so helpful in every way and a delight to receive weekend paper on the doorstep. Even the pavers in the lawns are spaced for high-heel walking. Garden furniture was generous and we wished we could have stayed for a week! Even ice in the guest laundry! Thank you for such a perfect visit.
