“Beach Front first choice.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

We visit Napier every year to work on a property and stay at different Motels each time, however this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review. The booking was a breeze and very competative in price. The receptionist actually asked what my requirements were and then offered a choice of rooms that suited. A very competative pricing structure was also offered. Although this was a large complex we never heard any noise from neighbours, there was always parking available outside our own unit and I was one of the best stays we have had in Napier.
Wonderfully helpfull staff and spotlessly clean.

There are several good motels along the sea front in Napier, but the Beach Front might just be the best. All the suites are larger than average, and there is a good choice of layouts. We chose one with a separate bedroom because we like to unpack and spread out without cluttering the main space. but if you go for the option with a spa bath integral to the main part of the suite you get a much larger spa bath. It's probably nicer overall if you are reasonably tidy, or don't need to unpack.
We found the owner and staff particularly helpful, and willing to go the extra mile. Everything was in great order, and we got the impression that they were very concious of the need for high standards. We found standards pretty high right across NZ, but the Beach Front is one of the best we experienced.

Room Tip: There is a road right along the sea front, across the front of all the motels. It's not a proble...

We stayed here for the Mission Weekend this year and thoroughly enjoyed our accommodation. It was clean, very comfortable with a separate lounge area as well as a very comfortable king size bed, small kitchenette and a large spa bath is an alcove. The location of this motel is great - you can walk into the main shopping centre of Napier easily and the beach is just across the road. The staff are great - very obliging and friendly. We were able to get a bus to the Mission Concert and back at a very reasonable price. Overall the Beach Front motel is a great place to stay.

This is an excellent motel and an absolute pleasure to spend a night there. The room we had was very spacious, we had a balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean and we loved it. The really big surprise when we got into our room was that it contained a large spa bath, this is in addition to a shower, real luxury. It cost $150 and was worth every cent. Staff are also very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you book a room overlooking the ocean, ask for one on the second or third level. Your view will n...

We had a lovely stay at the Beachfront Motel. Lovely and clean and very quiet. We will be staying there again. We were checking out the venue of our Daughters Wedding to be held in Waimarama at Easter 2013

Last November, we had stayed at a 2 bedroom unit which is spacious for 3 of us ( parents + a teenager). It was on the top 3rd floor, so we had got not only the ocean view but also the privacy. The main bedroom had a king bed, an old TV set . The twin room was located in the middle of the unit which had a small internal ventilation window above the door, just like those in an old styled bathroom/toilet. Without an actual window, it was hotter and darker. My son refused to sleep in it, and went to the bed in the lounge instead. The lounge is spacious and the kitchen was well equipped. A little disappointed that we had a single spa bath in our unit but the studios double spa pools.

This time we booked a studio apartment, just 2 of us. It was on the ground floor of another block at the back of the motel complex, with no seaview. We however could park our car right outside our unit. The unit was very spacious and clean, had separate dinning and sitting area and an in-room double spa pool! The super king bed was very supportive and comfortable.The spacious toilet/shower room was bright and clean.

We stayed for 2 nights in January. Room is nice, well appointed. Good size table to have breakfast and the kitchen has cooking facilities. The view was really beautiful. Bathroom with spa pool was great. Kids loved the bubbles. Everything was clean. Beds were hard though and not really comfortable. We stayed on the second floor and although there's no elevator the sloping stairs make it an easy walk upstairs. Close to the center and there's an amazing playground across the street. Kids really loved that. Reception staff were very friendly. Would definitely stay again although maybe not in peak season as rooms were quite pricy. (as was all accommodation in Napier at that time.) Napier is great for short holiday break, such a nice atmosphere and I wish we could take home the amazing playgrounds. The stroll a long the beach is really nice, don't forget to take the scooters!

Room Tip: I think all rooms have sea view, we stayed on the top floor which was great.
