Excellent spa and view, host very helpful
Not enough car parking for each room
Very clean and comfortable. Quiet and restful. Excellent location for beach front and close to main shops.
Small car park. Not enough spaces for all available rooms - some guests had to park on the road where parking restrictions applied.
Everything, the room was perfect and the owners were so helpful... Would so stay there again
Nice spa bath. Lovely sea view from the penthouse suite. City centre at walking distance.
Nothing in particular
The staff were very helpful with information on the local restaurants and as well as local sights to be seen. Highly recommend you ask for directions to The Mint Restaurant quality all the way. Great location but very quiet rooms.
Although free wifi was advertised it was very limited and quite poor quality.
Well appointed room, large and spacious. Great location along the Esplanade yet room was nice and quiet. Linen and towels excellent quality. Kitchen facilities good. Did not have opportunity to use spa but it looked very inviting.
Quiet, clean, comfortable and very friendly, helpful staff
The huge bed.
The kitchen sink was a little awkward to use due to the over hanging cupboards.
Ocean front window view, city and mountains side view. Home-made gelato across the street. Between aquarium easy walk one way and mini-putt the other.
Over-hyped the restaurant called "Mint" when the "Bistro" next door was just fine for both a dinner or breakfast.
No electric blanket :-(
close to restaurants etc
We took the opportunity to upgrade and then were further upgraded to a suite with spa bath. It was lovely with everything we could possibly need plus a great view. The owner was very helpful and we had a great stay.
Breakfast needed to be pre-ordered which we didn't realise and so we missed out.
Proximity to sea and town of Napier. Quality of room.
Found proprietor a bit over-bearing.
Close to restaurants the beach with no road noise at night.
The weather that weekend wasn't the best
Excellent welcome by John who really took the time to tell us where to go, what to see, where to dine. Our Penthouse was beautiful with 2 balconies, a huge round spa bath and spotless accommodation. Great location with everything within walking distance
we liked everything
Clean, comfortable, great view back from road a bit still able to see the sea, great friendly owner who was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Napier wind whistling
Helpfulness at reception, ideal situation and comfortable and warm.
Parking was perhaps a little tight
The location was good and the room was clean.
Being charged $30 a night for a 2 month old that did not require anything extra. When the room was cleaned all of our personal belongings were moved and re-arranged, not only did it make us feel like they went through everything but that we did the wrong thing putting it where it was. Staff was rude, we were there specifically for all blacks game and she told me it was pointless to go to a live game and then told my wife she was pregnant (she's not pregnant).
Everything you need for a mini break. Being able to sit in spa bath with a wine watching TV bliss. Clean & comfortable
Pillows pretty hard
The staff were great, we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was any trouble, they had excellent knowledge of the area, suggested excellent places to eat, the best of which was the local RSA good value for money. To say the rooms were clean is an understatement, they were cleaned each day and towels, face cloths and tea towels replenished every day. The kitchen facilities are good too.
The only negative thing I could say was they need to say on the website they have hairdryers! LOL
spa bath was excellent. Nice setup , felt spacious
The owners were a very nice couple and made our stay pleasant
I enjoyed the service given us from staff, the lovely breakfast, comfy accommodation, lovely spa
Having to leave due to other commitments
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
