Friendly hosts and good location for our trip around New Zealand . Only stayed one night but very comfortable. A great fish and chip restaurnt within walking distance from the motel was a highlight. Helped with sights to see around the area before we tracpvelled north

Personnal friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and fonctionnal, for exemple all the kitchen facility was there fos us. Great location et not to far from city town. We made a family trip and overall was very satisfied. I'm recommanded this place if you travel along or with family.

Lovely personnel. Arrived and, as we were staying for more than 3 nights, we were put in a better room to the one we pre-booked. Altogether very helpful and friendly staff. Great laundry facilities, very useful when on a long trip!
Loved the walk-in shower, comfy bed and 'somewhere' to sit. Enjoyed the location and not too far from central Napier. Would go back again any day.

Well appointed room and facilities, although electric shower takes a bit of sorting out. Seafood café just round the corner in Westshore shops very convenient, and having estuary walkways across the road, and beach two blocks away a real bonus. Main criticism is that the security lights along the verandah cannot be blocked out (comes through top of blackout curtains and seems like an eternal dawn) so although bed was very comfortable, I had trouble sleeping. Would stay again but bring my own blackout shades!!

Thank you very much for posting your review. We will look at the curtains and see if we can find a solution, [ we replaced all the old ones which were bright yellow and the rooms were like the yellow sun was shining all night,, with dark curtain, but near impossible to get complete darkness due to street lights and we need enough light for people to be able to find the key hole in the door, we may be able to put the dimmest bulbs possible to help too., will certainly look into it.

Great two night stay. Helpful and friendly hosts, Clean and tidy unit, warm and comfortable bed. Great location. We had our two small dogs with us and it was great to be able to have them there and convenient to have such a lovely estuary to take them for a walk.. We had a great weekend and would definately stay there again.

Stayed 2 nights over Queens Birthday weekend and it was perfect for what I wanted. As most of the units were full and I thought I might have another family member bunking in with me, they were more than happy to supply me with a mattress if need be. The unit was very clean, warm and tidy and had everything I needed. Would definitely stay there again, especially as I see it is pet friendly :)

We stayed for two nights with our dogs. The unit was very clean and tidy. The unit was a great size for being able to move around whilst still having space on the floor for the dog beds. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The motel is in the perfect location for walking into town along the beach and getting to the cafes and bars. The unit that we stayed in gave us a good shady spot to safely leave the dogs in the car whilst we went mountain biking. Would happily stay again.
