“Fantastic motel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Just had two nights here and were so impressed. Great motel units. Up to date decor and wonderful service. Our one bedroom had everything supplied. More towels than we could use. Hair dryer. Great kitchen. Tv in bedroom. Wonderful garden setting. We were there for a family wedding. So recommend this motel.

Room Tip: All rooms well designed. Lovely sunny aspect

Staying as a sports team we had a warm welcome with a personal guide to units and amenities. Beautiful linen in our 3 bedroom upmarket family unit with extremely high standard of bathrooms and kitchen. New large spa set in large covered facility with shower was greatly appreciated as not many motels offer this luxury any more. All this set in lovely gardens with lemons and oranges just begging to be picked and eaten (yes, I was guilty) and within waling distance to the Taradale shops. Price for our team was excellent. Even tho our playing facility was in Hastings we think it is worthwhile to travel that extra distance for quality.

A friendly arrival welcomed us to this motel. Tidy, modern two bedroomed unit with everything you could need. Best sleep I've had in a motel - quiet and bed was comfortable. Very friendly owners and wifi worked a treat too.

Room Tip: Rooms off the street would definitely be the ones to go for as Gloucester St is quite a main street.

Thanks Maria, great you had such a good nights sleep ... whether on holiday or working it is so very important!! Gloucester St can be busy through the day but is quiet through the night plus we have this magic "hash glass" on those units. Anyway hopefully see you again soon - Cheers Mark

Staff very helpful - excellent instructions on how to get to the Colonial Lodge from City Centre.
Motel unit of a very high standard with ample supply of crockery, glasses, linen etc. The use of a laundry was another added bonus. The site layout and location of facilities within the site a real inspiration. As no longer need to travel with children it is still a pleasure to see that families with children of all ages are well catered for at this motel.
This was the 3rd Motel in the Asure group that my mother & I stayed at during the previous week and while the other 2 were very good this was an excellent motel for the above reasons plus many more that I've not mentioned.
Maybe my next trip to New Zealand will include Napier again especially now that I know it's not that far from the Mission.
Thank you for the attention and wonderful service.

We choose the Colonial Lodge Motel because of its price; a special one-off rate for a Sunday night had us sold. But- when we arrived I was astonished to see such a lovely, quiet peaceful garden setting (how many motels even have gardens anymore?!?!) with top-notch facilities. Our room had been upgraded and the short walk to the room with the motelier felt more like a walk through a park than a motel. The room was spacious and had everything we needed and more; it was spotless and there was even a little welcoming note from the housekeepers. Although we were in an upstairs room there was a baby gate available for stair safety. The services offered in the motel information pack were much more than I have ever seen anywhere else and unbelievably, the bed was more comfortable than the one we have at home! The swimming pool and children's play area were beautifully maintained and saved us money on extra activities, and it was very refreshing to be greeted and served by moteliers who clearly love what they do; they're in it for all the right reasons. The best value for money I have had from a motel ever. Thank you all- we will certainly be back.

Our 3 Basketball teams (group of over 45) stayed at Colonial Lodge. Mark and his team were brilliant hosts and did everything to make our stay very comfortable. There were lots of different areas for our kids to hang out together without getting under each others feet - pool, spa, recreation room and lots of outdoor areas including hammock. The kids were able to do 'hot n colds' even after a later game - facilities were readily available. The rooms were very warm and comfortable with good quality beds. There was plenty of off street parking that we were able to park 3 vans and a large trailer. The RSA next door was a bonus with exceptionally affordable meals. Some of our group left gear behind , no problem - it was posted back within the week. We would highly recommend and would definitely book there again. Thank you Mark for your wonderful hospitality.

Last minute booking for the Mission concert lead us here. Warm welcome on arrival, we did have some concerns about the room size we ended up with but as it was last minute waht do you expect. The room was comfortable, clean tidy and well decorated. We did raise our view with the Manager who did a fantastic job and managed to juggle us into another suite. Perfect.
If wanting a place close to Mission then you cannot go wrong here, but remeber book early!
