Stayed here two nights in the Art Deco part of the motel. Rooms were cold and dark with inadequate heating and not enough power plugs for heaters and electric blankets. This would be fine in summer for a family as it was spacious with plenty of beds. It was very clean with a great shower but tired looking. The signs full of over-zealous rules were off putting and the hosts not particularly warm. Wouldn't stay here again.

We stayed in a newly renovated deluxe studio. Everything was new and clean and so so spacious. A home away from home. Owners were very friendly and helpful (I still managed to get us lost even so). Napier is a wonderful place to visit and the motel is situated not far from CBD, but is QUIET. We felt it was value for money and will back again one day! Well done to the owners!

Great value in a newly renovated apartment. Close to CBD. Clean, well-equipped space and friendly hosts, even as a major storm event passed over. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting lovely Napier.

Napier is a wonderful town to visit, to explore the famous art deco architecture, and spend time in the cafes, shops and on the beach. Such palm trees!

And Gardner Court Motel at 16 Nelson Crescent, a quiet side street, is the perfect place to stay whilst there. The architecture and style complement the rest of the town. Rachel and Dave, owners/managers, are exceptionally friendly and helpful. I wish them well. Even their cat and big (and shy) dog are very friendly. The place is well priced, very clean, within a short walk of the centre, and couldn’t be bettered in any way.
I’d have no hesitation in staying there again. A great place and very much recommended.

Room Tip: Chat to the owners.

Excellent value for money. The Gardener Court motel is family run. Very friendly and helpful staff, good location. Well worth a short stay when visiting Napier. They have a large apartment, ideal if you have a large group and like Art Deco.
