This motel is slightly out of the main area of Napier, I see this as a bonus as it is very quiet and relaxed. Napier itself is only a 10 minute drive away. The owners are great people and go above and beyond to help...More

We stayed in the executive suite which was clean and spacious, the pillows were soft and it was very quiet couldn't even hear the people in the other rooms.We were greeted by the friendly staff on arrival. Will definitely stay again

One of Hawke's Bay's newest luxury air-conditioned motels - the place where those in the know choose to spend their time while staying in Napier. What makes the Ballina Motel special is our small size allows us More to focus on those important little details and provide personal service to ensure that your stay is both a relaxing and memorable experience. All our spacious rooms are air-conditioned (to provide some relief from Hawke's Bay's high summer temperatures and warmth in winter), and furnished to a high standard of quality which is reflected in our 4 Stars rating. Our quiet residential location (there are no crashing waves, barking seals, trucks or trains thundering through the night to keep you awake) ensures that you arise fully refreshed to take on the new day's challenges and fully enjoy the great Hawke's Bay lifestyle and glorious weather. Centrally located in Taradale midway between Napier and Hastings city centers - ensures that you are close to all of Hawke's Bay's diverse range of activities and attractions. Within easy walking distance of the cafe's restaurants, bars, and the main shopping center of Taradale. If you are looking for more than a standard motel, but not the excessive expense of a hotel then you are in the right place. Our accommodation makes the ideal base for visitors to Hawke's Bay. Less
