We stayed here recently and were very disapointed. The unit was not clean, the net curtains were silver instead of white, we stayed 4 nights and the only servicing the unit got was rubbish removal and towels on the couch with a roll of toilet paper on top each day, yet we paid the same price each night so would...

My little family stayed here for one night last weekend. We picked this property as it was rather cheap, and close to the Hastings Hospital, where we were visiting a family member. The motel is basic but comfortable enough for a one night stay - assuming you wont be spending much time in the room. Rooms are small and rather...

We have stayed here before. The motel we were in has recently been renovated and was very comfortable. The grounds however need some TLC particularly the Frontage. The reception was friendly and welcoming.

The motel was clean, tidy although the décor was a bit dated. The manager was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for takeaways, grocery shopping and not far from the main township. I got everything that I would expect for what I paid. I would definitely visit again.

We have just returned from spending 9 nights at the Frimley Lodge. The room was just what we needed. Clean & comfortable & central to Hastings CBD. We were very surprised to find that the rooms are serviced every day for long term patrons. Will definitely be staying here again when we visit our friends & family in Hawkes Bay.

I booked this motel way back in September. Communication from the UK, with the owners was excellent, as I wanted to confirm booking having been let down by Jason's two years ago, when we arrived in Napier for the Art Deco Weekend and no record of our booking! Gareth and his wife are excellent hosts, so friendly and helpful.Unit 10...

Small centrally located motel in Hastings,this well maintained property has full kitchenettes in studio rooms. Beds are comfortable; staff are friendly. Although on a busy street, there is little road noise.

Very happy with our stay, room is small but perfect for a short stay. Bathroom recently renovated, very nice. Manager was friendly. Pool was clean. Would stay again. Four Square, cafes, Hell Pizza only a 10 minute walk away. Wifi not free which is the only downside but is available for a fee.

We spent a week here as a base from which to tour the area. This motel is very clean and comfortable and nothing is too much trouble for the proprietors. The room had all that we needed. We travelled with two children and found the motel location perfect for what we did. Parking is outside of your door. A Wi-Fi...

This motel was clean and tidy - an ordinary old type of motel. It had all we want. Hate it when you get given the milk and keys from behind the desk and directed to the place to park. How difficult is it to walk over (10 meters) and be a bit chatty and welcoming. Also no excuse for torn...

Thank you for your recent review. We apologise for the wripped net curtain. The previous night's guests were most apologetic for the damage but we were unable to get it replaced before you checked in. It is now replaced along with the curtains in that room as well. We take on board your comments about showing you the room. We...
