Score from 188 reviews Very good
Room was well appointed and immaculate, probably the cleanest motel room I have stayed in. Being on the top floor meant we had a nice sea view and the choice of a sea front balcony or a larger roof terrace to the side. Owner was very friendly and helpful when it came to recommending restaurants etc. Overall a perfect child free weekend getaway.
If I am being really picky I did find the pillows a little bit hard for my liking.
The staff very realy helpful and our room fantastic
Great people, friendly and helpful in every respect. A very good place to stay. Comfortable, very convenient and handy to the CBD.
Roomy, well-appointed, quiet, and handy to city centre
Real Milk! The location, layout, furnishings were all lovely.
great staff, great location, very comfy, modern, huge spacious room.
hard to find anything not to like. on the real nit picky side the mugs in the room for tea and coffee are tiny but they are the same at every motel it seems.
Our week in the Motel de la Mer was wonderful. The location on Marine Parade allowed us to look out our door and to see the beach. The room was large, tastefully appointed, and meticulously cleaned. The real highlight, though, was the personal attention from the staff - although Motel de la Mer looks like a standard motor lodge, the attention from staff feels more like a stay in a high-end bed and breakfast. We would definitely return.
Convenient location and good spacious room with all facilities
I noticed some of the paint-work needed a bit of a touch-up - but no big deal
Very clean, comfortable, well designed and equipped motel unit. Hosts were friendly and informative and gave great recommendations for cafes and restaurants. Loved the RSA drink voucher and excellent roast meal for a budget price.
It was all good!!!
the room - sumptuous feeling, fabulous and great view
noisy seal across the road
My experience has shown that the most important thing which makes all the difference is the FRIENDLINESS of the personalities who own/operate the facility and this was so in this case. Thanks.
We stayed on the 1st floor , unit was very comfortable - bedroom was separated by louvres. King bed - wish we could take it home!! Owners were very helpful and welcoming. Very central and quiet.
Close to the beach; comfortable bed; great spa bath. Very helpful hosts.
It was in my price range and was comfortable and inviting we are definitely planning to come next time with family. thank u very much for ur awesome hospitality.
Loved the warmth and comfort of Motel de la Mer, and the first class service from John and Llanys. Lovely view, handy to everything yet quiet.
I like this place because it faces the sea. We just had to cross the road to be on the beach for amazing view.
It was advertised as a full kitchen but there's a note in the room that prohibit full cooking. Other than that, it's a good hotel.
That I was made to feel part of the family. All the help in the world info on events and the like. A great stay.
The Penthouse is well worth booking - it is lovely, spacious, very clean, great location - the owners are great, helpful, we would stay here again in Napier.
