The Hotel locates between Napier and Wellington. Very ideal for taking a rest between long distance driving. Convenient location with restaurants and shopping malls in walking distance. The host and hostess are very kind and helpful.

So this place is a good place to stay if you dont want to blow the budget - dont judge by the outside the rooms are tidy and well presented. The service was amazing the guy was very polite and helpful. This is also very close to the town centre.

We booked into this motel as we couldn't get into our usual one. I had to change the number of beds needed at the last moment which I rang to let them know. On arrival they had everything organised for us. They were exceptionally helpful and a the room was lovely. We will definitely stay again.

I stayed here with a 5 year old and a 2 year old who had never been to a Motel before - and they were very impressed - not only did the TV have sky channels, but there was even a rocking chair to sit in while watching the children's programmes! There was also a spa bath which was another...

The owner was very accommodating and polite so I'd give 5 stars for that. The room is outdated but at least we had a nice big sunny window on the top floor. They really need to take some bleach to the mold on the bathroom shower tiles and the shower curtain. I took points off for that. Replace the rubber...

We chose this motel because on bookings.com and their own webpage, it said that the rooms had been soundproofed. No, they definitely hadn't been! Street noise (always a problem on Fitzherbert Avenue), and noise from other guests were quite disturbing. A simple remedy for the street noise would be double-glazing. Otherwise, the staff were extremely helpful (the first time we...

It has been several years since we last stayed at The Legends and in that time there has been a change of hosts. Very happy to say that the hosts were extremely helpful and friendly and that the accommodation and cleanliness were excellent not that there was ever anything wrong with The Legends going back many years. It's big attraction...

What a lovely place to stay - a home away from home especially with super comfy beds, spa bath and two recliner chairs. The location was brilliant - a two minute walk to a variety of eating establishments as well as two supermarkets and the local mall less than five minutes away. The service was A+++ and I can highly...
