We spent three days at the Beach Front and really liked it. Nice and tidy, an extra room for the kids, great views over the water and walking distance to town. Off-street parking and easy to find. Would totally recommend!

Very happy with our choice of a one bedroom sea view unit at a very affordable price. The decor is a little "retro" in a good way, very tidy and a great layout for a family, with a separate bedroom and twin beds, a bathroom in between and well equipped kitchenette, table and chairs and queen bed in the main...

The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. While the bathroom itself was a little tired it met our requirements. The room had a nice view of the beach and was of a good size. We enjoyed our night there.

Just the one night but very comfortable and with big round spa bath. Nicely decorated in a stylish but modern structure. Its only a few minutes down marine parade so convenient if you want to walk into cbd

This motel is in a great location. Most rooms have excellent views over to the sea and are nice and roomy. Ours had a magnificent spa bath which was lovely. Everything was very clean. Even though the motel is on Marine Parade we found it quiet.

'We won't hold that against you,' was the host's unsmiling comment when he heard I was from Sydney. How about just saying 'welcome'? His lack of warmth left a sour taste with both me and my travelling companion. There was initial refusal to give us a small low-fat milk carton in addition to the standard full-cream one; when he reluctantly...

We are sorry that you were upset with the friendly banter that is so often enjoyed by both Australians and Kiwis alike. As with all banter the comments are only given in a friendly manner. We can assure you that we welcome our Australian guests. As with most New Zealand motels we offer a complimentary milk of either standard or...

My Husband and I stayed at this motel for two nights in a City View room on the first floor. There is a number of stairs to carry your luggage up but once inside the room is very spacious, clean and mostly quiet, includes a small kitchenette, spa bath and balcony with large sliding doors out. Added bonus of free...

We presented just after 12 noon, check in is clearly listed as 2pm. Rather than a "Hi, welcome to Napier" (we had only travelled over 5000km to get here), the first interaction was a very firm "sorry we can't accomodate you till 2 o'clock". It came across as almost gleeful, certainly we took it that way. Customer service 101 folks,...
