great value - clean, comfortable, reasonably modern and in a nice location close to walks and marina. however no iron - but i'm sure if we'd asked reception they'd happily get one for us. Reception was jovial and helpful.

Reception was very accommodating in letting us come in after turning up way past the normal hour to take up our booking. Room was clean and functional. Plenty of parking spaces. Accessible from the main highway.

This was another motel booked for us by NZ Tourism as part of our travels around NZ, and we were not disappointed. The owners are lovely, the motel is easy to find, it has plenty of off street parking, a pool and very clean. There is a bit of passing traffic, but this became zero from about 10:30pm, so totally quiet - we stayed 3 nights. The motel is probably a 5min drive to the Napier CBD and 2-3mins to West Quay, where there are numerous bars and cafe/restaurants.

Good base for us to return to after busy days. Front desk folks are friendly and the location is close to walkways, the beach and food places. Room was tidy and had what we needed. No frills motel but overall provided a nice stay.

Fantastic family stay. The owners were super friendly and went out of their way to accomodate us, rearranging the rooms to give us the layout we wanted, and even gave our kids paper to draw with. The motel is older but inside it was newly refurbished and spotlessly clean. Very close to the beach, cycle track and playground.
