“Brilliant”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

All the amenities needed for a pleasant stay, including an access unit for wife who uses a walker. Clean, full kitchen (no hob but owners can supply 2 cooker hot plates), quiet, DVDs, good wifi and TV, AC, $2 washer, reasonable price ($115 NZ), and Clinton/Robyn most friendly on-site owners. Not in town but just 10 min and 3 km nearby

We booked a studio for two nights. It was the largest studio we've ever had. Modern, clean, attractive. Very pleasant hosts. We absolutely loved it. It had a fully equipped kitchen and a huge spa bath. There was a ceiling fan and air con. Cant recommend the deco city highly enough

Can't say enough about this superior accommodation. Almost better than home, and the receptionist, manager and staff were very helpful and friendly. Nowhere else we'd stay in Napier. Might pay to book - it' very popular.

Room Tip: Book if possible.

Although the owners were away on their summer holiday, Ian and Margaret, the stand-in managers, couldn’t have been more warm and welcoming.

You will definitely need a car for the Deco City Motor Lodge as it is too far to walk to the town centre. And when I was there, it was completely full, which meant parking in the main courtyard area was tricky as there were many vehicles with only just about enough spaces with some double-parking.

The studio room was large, bright, clean, comfortable and very nicely presented and had everything you would need, including air-conditioning, microwave, large fridge and excellent, fast wi-fi. [There are two Countdowns, opposite each other rather bizarrely, just a 5 minute drive away].

Having a shower in a large, jacuzzi corner tub was a little odd, with limited shower curtain protection to keep the water in, but the bathroom itself was a good size. The net curtains in the room obscured a wonderful morning sunrise view. The kettle leaked and the water kind of spouted out – though I am sure that the front desk would willingly have swapped it for another if I asked them/had been staying for longer. There was some background traffic noise, as Kennedy Street is remarkably busy for a relatively quiet town, but the noise wasn’t intrusive.

But overall, Deco is a very good accommodation choice in the delightful city of Napier.

A last minute booking took us to Deco City. A great place to stay, comfortable and really helpful staff. The studio was well appointed, even had a jacuzzi bath! There was even a pool which was a complete surprise. We would certainly visit again.

What can I say that hasn't been said before? My daughter and I travelled to Napier for the Deco Weekend. This was my first time there (or, anywhere in NZ) and was pleasantly surprised at the comfort of our room. Everything that we needed was provided, and more. A kitchenette, generously sized bathroom with spa tub, excellent shower and plenty of light, comfortable beds and large towels! We loved the old cars parked around, including Clinton's, an old hearse and other lovely models. Great customer service. Enjoyed talking with Yvonne and Clinton. Would definitely stay here again, and recommend it highly!

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a room with two beds, if needed.
