My husband and I both loved this place. The whole atmosphere is so homely. Nicely decorated rooms, lovely 50ish stuff in the hallway, even a working turntable with LP's to play. The room has a small fridge and tea and coffee making facility with sugar,tea,coffee and milk provided daily. We were on he ground floor and enjoyed the little courtyard. A very well equipped kitchen with again free tea,coffee, sugar and milk. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We recommend this place and if ever back in Napier will certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: we loved ground floor with small courtyard

Parkside Lodge is a converted old peoples retirement home. No, that is incorrect, as it is not even converted. The decor and layout are typical retirement home style - don't be fooled by the pics.

The room is really small and the bathroom, again retirement home style.

You might be so kind as to describe it as very basic, and believe me that would be kind.

Location is "miles from anywhere".

We could hear every bang and thump from the upstairs and when we did sleep, we woke with sore backs. The mattresses were really bad.

This place's saving grace was the staff who were friendly and accommodating.

Price was reasonable but value was low, very low.

Dear TripAdvisor readers,

A sincere thank you on behalf of all here at Parkside Lodge for awarding us consecutive Certificates of Excellence in appreciation of the efforts of the team, the value for money we provide, and our immaculate cleanliness and presentation. The last twelve months have been our busiest yet and we continue to receive wonderful reviews that make all our efforts feel worthwhile. Unfortunately as hurtful as it is to our professional pride there will naturally always be a percentage of the population who do not share the opinion of everyone else, and to FWhanau we apologise for the experience you seem to have had with us. It is a shame the comments included here were not expressed in person to allow us the opportunity to offer some solutions. To any potential guest looking to book with any inkling of initiative or intelligence our website, and those of our third party partners, accurately describes the content of the rooms, the size of the rooms, the convenient location to wineries, shops, expressways, and city, as well as the former use of the building which 15 years ago ceased it's use as a private hospital specialising in cosmetics. The Lodge has been lovingly recreated in vintage decor and antique musical curiosities as my wife and I have a great passion for retro splendour. Most of our comments here on this site will attest to their charm. We accept it may not be to everybody's liking, but assumptions such as these are not only wide of the mark, they underline the entire logic of the review itself. If someone can find better value at a time of the year when most competitors inflate their seasonal prices, we encourage you to grasp such deals with both hands. Anything more generous than is offered at Parkside Lodge is unlikely to be sustainable for long. We invite any enquiries to be directed to us personally and we will be delighted to discuss what we have to offer.

Regards, Sateesh and Prue

Amazing! This hotel is decorated in a nice and summery way, very different from the usual ones. The receptionist is super kind, he explained everything clearly and friendlily. There's a kitchen downstairs with a coffee machine, where you can get good coffee for free at any time (and some pastry is offered). Really glad to have come across you!

We actually ended up here by accident! We were supposed to be staying at another nearby motel for around $200 a night, but somehow they had double-booked us. Luckily Parkside Lodge had a cancellation and we were able to stay there for less than $90. We weren't sure what to expect, but wow! We had travelled both islands extensively, but nobody came close to Parkside for value and service. The place is gloriously decked out in retro styling, with vinyl records and various knick knacks to peruse. Our room was smallish, but had everything we needed ... including sweet air conditioning at last! The kitchen had fresh herbs, home grown herbal tea, espresso coffee and even home baked cookies from the hosts (not those packaged cardboard style ones you get at the $200 motels!). The lodge itself was peacefully located away from the main road and across from a beautiful park where you can jog or feed the geese. There is ample common areas as well as a generous amount of books to flick through. Highly recommended and a credit to the team who runs it!
