We thank you for your your review and glad you enjoyed our lovely area. As with most motels, we are on a main road, so traffic noise can be a problem for those who are not used to it. Our complimentary earplugs on offer certainly do the trick though.

A really pleasant stay in a well appointed room, lovely bathroom and shower. Would definately stay here again. The proprietors hired us 2 bicycles so we could cycle around Napier. (Very enjoyable).Plenty of bars and restaurants on the way in to the town centre.

We found this motel clean, quiet and comfortable and very easy to find. Needed a vehicle because out of the main area of town. Good parking space and hosts very helpful-even folded the washing and placed in the motel when we went out.
