A very comfortable, clean motel just over the road from the lovely salt marsh in Napier with its many birds - in one short walk we saw herons, spur-winged plovers and goldfinches to name a few. The bed was very comfortable. Some traffic noise, yes, but the motel hosts offer ear-plugs for guests who might find that a nuisance, The...

Good tidy accommodation in a handy, central location with all the facilities you need. Easy parking, attentive hosts with the bonus of free wifi and access to 50+ Sky channels. Only downside is being able to hear trucks very early in the morning due to main road location. Otherwise great motel - I would choose to stay here again.

The room was comfortable, clean and well-equipped, with a pleasant view as a bonus. The owners replaced a faulty microwave and toaster straight away. The bed was comfortable and the heating worked well.

Very nice unit with Sky TV and free wifi. Very clean and tidy with no faults at all. Nice to have clean towels daily too.Reception was very nice and anything you ask of them is no trouble. Had all we needed, ie cooking facilities, jug, etc and a nice electric heater which was very efficient.

We asked about a room and were told that they were full-but the owner said that if we could wait, there was one just being cleaned. There had been a mix-up with the cleaning staff and the room had been overlooked to be cleaned. We did wait and were happy that we did-nice clean room with everything one could want.

Very clean and tidy with good resources. The room was comfortable with everything we needed. Great location close to town and the airport. Staff were friendly and helpful. It was a cheapish room but feel we got good value for money.

3 adults stayed for 2 nights. All slept well in comfortable beds. Not a huge unit but adequate. Lovely big bathroom which is always a bonus. We were away from the road which was nice and reasonably quiet. Did not interfere with sleep. No air conditioning which would have been an issue if the Weather hadn't been cooler. We would...

Thank you for your review and glad to hear you had a good sleep. Sorry we don't have air conditioning but supply fans in all rooms for those few hot nights we get in the height of summer.
