Reviewed August 27, 2014

Really enjoy staying at the Palm City Motel, The Proprietors are always friendly and welcoming and willing to accommodate. Lovely restaurant and very comfortable spacious units with wifi and sky. Situated in a central location and handy to a shopping center, just makes our stay so easy and enjoyable. My family and I have chosen to stay at this motel whenever we go to Napier because we know we're going to get great value and great accommodation and well looked after and most of all best service. Highly recommend this motel to anyone.

Room Tip: have only stayed on the ground floor but was always satisfied with our units

Our family stayed at Palm City many times now and every time was excellent! All of the rooms we've been in were super clean and comfortable. The owners are amazing - and go the extra mile - even offering to babysit our 3 month old during dinner, upgrading to a bigger room for no extra charge... This is the best and especially friendliest Motel we've stayed in the whole of New Zealand and we've traveled heaps so far. A big thanks to all of the staff making us so very welcome every time!

Thank you for your lovely review. We are lucky to have the onsite restaurant which Monday - Thursday is available as an extra service to our guests, particularly our room service so that work can be completed in time for the weekend.
We hope to see you again soon.

If your priorities are, great value for money, close to the city, clean and quiet, comfortable beds and well stocked rooms then look no further. But wait there's more.... This motel also comes with the most kind and helpful host you will ever meet.We received a courtesy call before arrival to check if we would require use of the onsite restaurant for dinner. On arrival Helen was lovely and went the extra mile to make our stay fabulous. Lovely spacious room which was stocked with everything you could possibly wish for including good quality teas, coffee including plunger, hot chocolate and biscuits. Nicely scented bathroom supplies, soft towels and good water pressure too. A perfect stay and will definitely return.

Really enjoyed our stay, with rooms that were super clean and a bed that was so comfortable! Hosts were lovely and helpful. Whilst not on the beach front its only minutes to town. Very well priced and we will stay again when in Napier.

This is Glynis from Kapiti 4 Seasons Tours. Our group went to Napier last week to see the Gannets and their chicks. Helen our host was very helpful from the moment we booked until the moment we left. Our group of seniors all decided this was just the kind of motel we enjoy, modern, clean and ground floor, suited us all, we will be back again for sure...
We stayed two nights and used 4 studio and 3 one bedroom units. The one bedroom units had a nice size lounge, so we used our unit for pre-dinner drinks.

Room Tip: Decide if you want morning or afternoon sunshine, Helen will advise you for sure.
