“Great hosts art deco rooms”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

Hosts are superb and very helpful.

Rooms are set in the 1960s but adds to the character of the place.

Short drive into town.
But very comfortable.

A pleasure to stay at considering the price.

My husband and I stayed here a while ago when attending a friend's wedding. The thing that made this place stand out for us was the great host. We had to catch a bus from the main station at 8am, and as the time ticked closer to 8 there was still no sign of our taxi. The host drove us to the station himself and refused any form of payment. Good old Kiwi service.
The motel itself was pretty good: clean, value for money etc.

As other reviews point out this motel is very very dated. Our bathroom had a cockroach problem which the owners did apologize for but had no real solution. Motel owners were very friendly and happy to recommend and help out with local attractions. Internet access was not free but the charge was quite reasonable. Slightly outside of town so be prepared for a walk or short drive to the center.

We stayed for two weeks at the Spanish Lady Motel earlier this year whilst working in Napier. If you are looking for an excellent quality three star motel in Hawkes Bay then this is the place to choose! The rooms are spacious with all the amenities you require and were cleaned to very high standards throughout our stay. The beds were really comfy too!!!! By far the best thing about the Spanish Lady Motel is the lovely, accommodating hosts, they made us feel so welcome, it was like a real home from home!

Great little motel with friendly proprietors. It is a little out of town but main attractions are easily accessed within 5-10 minutes by car. It lays back from the road and is pretty peaceful. The rooms are very clean and well cared for but it is clearly a very long time indeed since this motel was refurbished. Despite this it is not without charm and we enjoyed our stay.
