Location and friendly staff
See very poor wifi service mentioned above
Very nice owners. Try to get the upper apartments with the view.Great to be so close to the beach and the town at the same time.
The location is on the main hike into Napier and was great for us over the Art Deco Weekend. Never moved the car once in 4 days
A lovely place to to stay with my Canadian friend. The staff were very helpful and the facilities superb.
Noisy neighbours on our first night were the only drawback. This was sorted for our second night enabling us to have a restful sleep.
Walking distance to great dinner spots, and brekkie the next morning
Some partial view of the lake Staff friendly and no problems if you ask for extra Internet giga
Small size bathroom (but very large spa next to the bed, like porn movies) Small kitchen
Went into the room & thought "wow". It was the biggest room we had on our three weeks travelling & the decor was lovely. We actually had a second bedroom with twin beds which we didn't need at all. There was a 6' bed, a couch & armchairs looking out on the seafront, a well kitted out kitchenette with tea/coffee/cookies etc. Some nice homely touches. I was just sorry we weren't staying longer. There was a great recommendation from the host re dinner- he sent us to the RSA centre around the corner where we had a lovely "eat as much as you can" meal for $22 a head. One of our best.
Really enjoyed the spa bath and the location on the sea front near the town centre is perfect.
Washing was more expensive than elsewhere.
Lovely views from the penthouse apartment on the second floor. Nice size for an extended stay.
Pillows were too hard. We bought some cheap soft pillows from a local store to use while we were there
Great seafront location, near the Art Deco centre of Napier.
The location was great. Very close to some good restaurants. Area by the beach was lovely
WiFi was limited. Décor was dated.
Lovely large room with many great amenities. The hosts were so friendly and helpful.
Very helpful on checking in and checking out.
Location, on Marine Parade just a short walk from town centre Large room with spa bath Free WiFi Air conditioning Large bed (2 singles pushed together)
No net curtain at window which opened on to car park Very basic hairdryer, have to keep button pushed down while using it
Excellent facilities in the room sand bathroom. Recently renovated.
Poor view from the upgraded room.
The Motel is located on the main street and every 2 minutes there were huge trucks passing by the windows that made the whole building shake. It started early in the morning (around 6 and lastetd until 11 at night). This is a known problem to to owners but they flat out lied to us declaring that this would stop at 4 latest. Then every time we asked they said, yes it stops and you won't hear anything in the room. As the room had no airco, we could not aerate by leaving the windows open. The terrace was unusable due to this highly disturbing noise problem. The attitude of the owners was not friendly and helpful but rather unfriendly and policing. This is also reflected in the numerous signs left all over the appartment saying: Don't scratch the top of the counter don't do this and don't do that. You feel like in a surveillance room and not a hotel/motel. This impression was confirmed when - upon our return - we found that the owners hat deducted 75 NZD for removing a spot in the carpet. This is unbelievable. In Europe a cleaning lady works 5 hours for this amount of money.
The facilities were fabulous. Owner and staff extremely helpful. Well situated and quiet.
Beautifully appointed unit
Back bedroom a bit noisy , air conditioning units and other noise from houses behind
clean friendly motel good location for beach & town
Nothing to dislike
Lovely room and the owners were fabulous very kind and helpful
Location was great, modern clean and spacious. Good water pressure in the shower. Nice having great selection of T.V. channels to watch.
Bit of a lack of car parking, busy time of year. Kitchen a funny plan as cupboard over the sink stuck out.Thought $10 a little step to do washing in the guest laundry .
the bed and spa
We had a penthouse room, which was excellent - light and airy with a great outlook, and lots of space to move around in.
Parking can be a little pressured at busy times, although the staff acknowledged and apologised for this.
