Shoreline Motel Napier
Ranked #9 of 46 Hotels in Napier
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We had a generally pleasant enough stay of three nights, and the ladies in the reception were quite engaging! Others have mentioned the views and the ideal location, with stretch of beach and within walking distance of not only the small city but the National Aquarium of NZ.
We had the misfortune of being below a very active toddler who loved running around the room, and next to some Europeans who were quite dedicated balcony smokers! However, Napier will keep you busy so you will not be staying in the room that much.
The one thing we wished we could do upon bedtime was to open the windows to let the cool air in, without also letting in the traffic noise. Impossible. Also, the substantial curtains which block out the eastern morning sun also block out the airflow. In other words, we were quite warm during the night, which led to some sleeplessness. Wore earplugs and scant nighties to rectify. Otherwise, quite a nice motel.

Stayed at the Shoreline Motel again in Dec 2012, and it never fails to be first class. Fantastic ocean views, very large studio accommodation with a lovely spa bath. An easy walk into Napier, and best of all, QUIET in the rooms. The owners are always friendly and helpful, the beds and bedding are bliss. I would reccommend Shoreline to everyone.
Thanks again for another lovely holiday.

Room Tip: Studio rooms with an ocean view. We had a room on the top floor, great if you don't mind climbi...

Shoreline Motel is in an excellent location on Marine Parade with excellent views to sea and balconies to enjoy, especially in the morning sun. It is also within easy walking distance of the town, good restaurants and all the Art Deco sights.
We've never stayed in a studio unit this big! Very spacious living area, large comfortable bed, and topped-off by a spa bath! The kitchen is quite modest but entirely functional including a full fridge, and the place is spotless and well-maintained with units serviced daily.
We were warmly welcomed by Denise who also provided helpful advice re Napier and wine tours. The "welcome" basket of provisions was also much-appreciated. There was good Internet access.
We would highly-recommend this motel for its location and facilities

Room Tip: We were in unit 9 on the first floor, but any of the sea view units have excellent views across Mari...

We loved Napier and the motel just topped off our visit. If you can afford a little extra book the sea view rooms, it is worth it.
It is within walking distance of the city centre and all the shops and eateries. The views are beautiful and the suites all have spa pools.
The service was excellent and everyone was very friendly. We were here for new years eve and the free concert on the water front stage was fantastic with a huge fireworks display to see in the new year.
