    Furniture including beds tired and not that comfortable. Missing key elements in kitchen if self catering (some of these were found and provided by staff when asked). Oven very dirty again this was partially cleaned on request

    Nice size and set up, lots of pans in kitchen, clean fresh linen and towels, clean bathroom. Good location for airport, cycle tracks and port and Westshote beaches.

    It was further out of Napier than we would have liked and parking in Napier was a bit restricted. But we found parking in the town when we needed it.

    Relaxed and self contained. The staff were particularly helpful to ensure we were happy and all was well.

    Inadequate bedding. No spare blankets , and only 2 pillows on a king sized bed. Motel has what you need but certainly no extras. Exterior appearance basic, but OK inside.

    Motel was clean, and big enough. Heat pump and Kitchenette facilities were a deciding factor for us.

    A bit too far from central Napier for our preference, as would have liked to walk in for a meal and a drink. Only one cup in cabin for two people, but quickly rectified when staff notified. Car parking beside studio was a bit fiddly to get into, due to limited manoeuverability for largish ute, particularly for the end studio we were in, as up against a fence. Probably OK for most cars and for other cabins.

    Clean and tidy.

The cleaners came into our room twice without knocking while the do no disturb sign was up.

    The location is amazing. The staff are so welcoming, friendly and helpful and I definitely recommend eating in there restaurant and getting the steak. The chefs made us the most delicious meal.
