“Just what we wanted”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

The most comfortable king size bed we have slept in in a motel the carpet & furnishings new, the manager one of the most helpful. The owner needs to finish his updating of all the units. the kitchen was OK but the bathroom needed attention ASAP. We are both tall & did not like having our knees touching the wall while sitting on the toilet & hardly any room in the cubicle to stand up!!!

Room Tip: Ask about the bathroom in your room

My husband and I traveled from Auckland to attend a church conference in Napier,and we booked McLean Park Garden Motel for 4 nights. The deal we got was worthwhile. It was like a place away from home with such a quite environment. The apartment we were in was up to our standard. We really appreciated our stay there and want to say a big thank you to Wayne and Kathy for their hospitality. We are surely coming down again next year :) God Bless

Very clean motel with friendly and helpful staff. Older style motel with modern, new furnishings. Beds are amazing giving an excellent night's sleep. Quiet with no road noise. The kids had a great time in the swimming pool and lots of space for kids to play and swing too. Refreshing greenery all around. Superbly well maintained gardens. Bonus of fresh fruit off the many fruit trees in the motel gardens. Walking distance from Marine parade new developments - mini golf, SK8 park, scooter park, national aquarium, sound shell. We walked into town and back most days. This is one great place to stay, especially for families.

Room Tip: all rooms very quiet. More privacy in back block. swimming pool directly in front of middle block.

I found this motel to be immaculately presented with beautiful grounds, lovely gardens a well-maintained pool and fantastic provisions in the room also. The bed was extremely comfortable and the unit was clean and well-maintained. McLean Park Garden Motel is conveniently located, being just a short stroll to the waterfront and the centre of town which made it easy to spend a lovely morning walking along the shore and taking in the beautiful atmosphere of this pretty city.

We found this motel to be conveniently located in a quiet area that adequately suited our team during a recent visit. The moteliers were friendly and efficient in their attention to our requirements. As the units are of an older style they would suit sporting groups or those with small families. Our units were very clean and the beds and linen appeared new. As noted by others updating of fittings could be prioritised.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendly & helpful manager. Ours was a 1 brm unit & it had recently been refreshed with new carpet, painting & comfortable bedding & furniture. These are older style units with all the original fittings in the bathroom & kitchen. At some stage soon it would be beneficial for these units to be modernised & refitted. However on saying that I thought that we had very good value for money.

McLean Park Garden Motel was a nice quiet place to stay on our visit to Napier recently Though there were only the two of us, the unit would suit a small family also. The grounds are spacious, with easy access from the road, large grassed areas which our unit overlooked and gardens which are being gradually improved by the new management.Having a nice sunny area for reading just outside the door plus the unit being on a single level was an added bonus. Our unit was cosy and clean, with a separate bedroom. The queen bed was against the wall which was a little inconvenient. The kitchen is just inside the back door and quite small however the double doors from the living area give alternative outside access. Management were very friendly and obviously enjoy their role as hosts. Located one street back from Marine Parade is ideal for those morning walks by the sea.and though the railway line is close by (Wayne did tell us ) we hardly noticed the one train that went through; no louder than a car really. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip.
Very good value and a handy location. Thanks for the grapefruit ,Wayne!
