Such a relief to be able to have our dogs with us even though they slept happily in the car, they had access to a lovely fenced garden area from our room number 5. I took a big blanket for the dogs to use when they were in the room which made me feel better!! Kaye is so warm and friendly, the room clean, we were very comfortable. Location is marvellous for walking as it is just around the corner from the track that goes inland and to the beach.

Room tip: Rooms 5, 6 and 7 have the garden access without bothering other people

We stayed 4 nights during Art Deco week. The rooms were spacious and a tribute to the Art Deco theme. Facilities were excellent and there is a pleasanr outdoot are ( due to the weather we only admired this through the window. My only suggestion would be to improve the lighting, especially in the bathroom. This was a lovely place to return to in the evenings.

I appreciate that you made the time to review Clive Studios. I also appreciate the feedback regarding the Art Deco theme, wanted to give just a hint of this wonderful era.
Please come again and note the Winter Art Deco weekend is 14-16 July, hopefully a better weather report.
Thank you Kaye

We had a very comfortable two nights here. It was the best motel we stayed at during our tour of the North Island. The proprietor was very helpful and friendly, it was clean and the bed superb. Also an added bonus was the hotel across the road which served great food. We would definitely stay here again.

I was booked into Clive Motel which is now Clive Studios , as it has a new owner Kaye.
Kaye was very friendly and welcoming.
Was really happy after walking in, exceptionally clean and inviting.
A tidy little unit with all that was wanted.

Now renamed Clive Studios, we are just finishing a week's stay here. Kaye our host, has really made this a great place to stay. The rooms are clean and airy with a private patio area. The king size bed is very comfortable. Our two greyhounds have been made very welcome. Very central for Napier and Hastings. A wonderful wetlands park and dog walking area is very close and very beautiful.

Room tip: The only variation between rooms is the bed size.
