“5 Star Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2011

They say never mix business with pleasure but on a recent trip to work at the Art Deco festival in Napier I decided to take the family, only because I knew from a previous stay that the Colonial Lodge would cater for both my busy schedule and my teenager and two younger children 2/5. After working, the Colonial Lodge was a great place to come home to with it's beautiful gardens, tastefully decorated modern & comfortable rooms. Joining the kids splashing about in the swimming pool and then everyone into the luxurious spa pool was the best way to relax before dinner from the BBQ. Once the littlies were tucked up in bed we sat outside the room amongst the lovely gardens with a glass of the local wine of which there are many in Hawkes Bay. 5 minutes drive from Napier and 5 minute walk to Taradale centre, everywhere is easy to get too if you are sightseeing. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable and pleasing place to stay with the icing on the cake as Mark the proprieter and his lovely staff. Stay here or miss it!

We travelled with a cycle tour group and this was one of the nightly stopovers. Lovely clean units, very welcoming staff and great outdoor facilities including a pool. We decided to order takeaways and were able to enjoy this at one of the many outdoor table settings provided. Free internet was another added bonus. Having opted out of the days cycling early, I was delighted to find I was most welcome even though a bit early for our booking. This was greatly appreciated. Our studio unit was very ample for the two of us and the bathroom was nice and roomy.

Wonderful place to stay! Our room was large, clean, very comfortable with a separate, fully equipped kitchen & spacious bathroom. Even the smallest room we viewed here was more than adequate, tasteful, & great for a couple. The garden right at our door was lush & peaceful & to top it off there was a swimming pool. Excellent value for money. Great caring service from out host. Definitely recommend it.

I was in a family group on a cycling tour that stayed at the Colonial Motor lodge on the 9 February. It was a great place to stay, our rooms was spacious,clean, well equiped and fronted onto a lovely garden. The service was exceptional and the swimming pool was a godsent on a very hot day. It is certainly on my list for another visit.

We were a family group on cycling tour. We booked five double rooms and all paid the same price and were allocated one 2 bedroom unit, one 1 bedroom unit, 2 executive studios all close together with garden outlook and 1 petit studio which was isolated, no outlook and very small. Description for the Petit Studio says suitable for two persons but need's to continue "provided you don't have two cases." Certainly not 4 star plus. Concerns to management were met with option to move in with other group members. Even the allocated car park was given to another guest. Also advised that allocation is done on the day and unlike other motels customers cannot pre select a particular unit thus the inconsistent allocation of units. So Beware!

We stayed there in the middle of a very hot week in Feb 2011, the heat pump air con is magic - efficient and very quiet. Host and staff friendly and helpful, bathroom recently refurbished to high standard, kitchens have everything. List of extra goes on and on: BBQ, free use of laundry, outside tables to eat your dinner, ice, pool, games room, wifi....
The only possible downside is as pointed out in other that the motel it situated in Taradale, which mid way between Hastings and Napier - not a problem for us as we were driving between winerys and other places. Dont miss Ocean Beach and the Te Mata Peak lookout!

We stayed two nights, and I have to say from the moment we pulled into the drive we were welcomed. The gardens were well kept, with many rooms have tables and chairs outside to help you enjoy the local wines, in the sun.

We were given the opportunity to view the room before we agred stay. It was very clean and tidy with modern fixtures and fittings. It almost looked like we were the first people to stay in the modern facility. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need to cook for four.

The central facilities were also of the highest standards, with free interner, washing machine and games room.

Having stayed in many hotels as a travellong professional couple, we can not recommend this motel enough. Quiet. Friendly staff/owner. Nice big facilities. If you want a good place to get away from it all, this place is pretty perfect.
