Excellent facilities in an excellent location
Large appartment on ground floor on the sea front a short stroll from the main town The owner brought us an excellent breakfast on individual trays in the morning
good location and accommodation
Close to beach & restaurants
We were extremely pleased with our 1 bedroom apartment - especially the spa! Ocean glimpses and a luxury feel to the room was most pleasing. Very helpful staff. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
The room and facilities were excellent as were the staff.
Location, value for money, quality of accommodation
Excellent location overlooking the Sea. Accommodation was immaculate, nothing overlooked, owner paid particular attention to detail, everything looked in pristine condition.
The location with easy access to the city and also near the sea.
Noisy neighbours late at night were a problem
We were very impressed with the size of our apartment. Modern decor, great views from the lounge window out across the sea, and while the motel is on a busy road, double glazing definitely helped keep the noise down. Being able to walk into the city centre within a few minutes was also a bonus, and we were opposite the Marine waterfront walkway which is fabulous.
While the staff were helpful, they were rather insistent on cleaning our apartment each morning, which meant that whether we wanted it or not, we had to make sure we were up and out early to enable them to come in!! On the positive side, it was lovely to come home to - a sparkling clean house!
Right across from the beach.
Friendly greeting, great location,comfortable.
The location and standard
My wife and I used the motel as our base for visiting Napier and Craggy Range. We really appreciated the friendly welcome and service, the great facilities including off-street parking and the central location.
Nothing. We loved it all.
The room we had was better than any hotel or motel rooms we stayed in for the whole 3 week trip. The gentleman who runs this place is obviously very proud of it, he took time out to show us round the room, the facilities, etc. Fantastic facilities, such a wonderful room, nothing to dislike about it at all. Very impressive.
Nothing bad about this place at all.
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.
