A nice motel located a little out of town but near a range of good restaurants. Owners very helpful and all services at the motel more than adequate. Has microwave and crockery/ cutlery for those that want to cater for themselves

Good place to stay in the Napier area. The room was large and clean and got everything you need, even a whirlpool and a own terrace with high-end grill. Easy to find and access with a friendly staff.....

Stayed at the Fairly Motor Lodge in a room that looked just like the one in the photo. Clean and tidy, lovely and warm with great sun and a heat pump/air conditioning unit.

We had a great stay in the weekend. This motel is very well situated, close to airport, Ahuriri estuary with its wonderful walks and biking and excellent cafes and bars and for exploring the Art Deco City of Napier and surrounding wineries. Two minutes to Westshore Beach which is a patrolled beach in summer. The room was well appointed, spotlessly... More

We had a lovely stay at the Fairley Motor Lodge in the weekend. The owners of the motel were so lovely and went the extra mile to make our visit to Napier extra special. The motel was clean and tidy and the beds were super comfy!

The room is nice and tidy, good environment for privacy, nice little garden, the owner is very friendly, I think the price worth the services and room. Highly recommended. The breakfast is nice too :)

Room was good, set out well and very clean. Kitchen had everything you need. Unfortunately it wasn't very private which was something we were after, I would have preferred that this was indicated in the correspondence before I booked the room. Gemma made us feel very welcome and was only too happy to help. Nice and quiet location.

The huge bed was indeed the biggest we have slept in , the room was nicely decorated and my husband enjoyed the spa bath in the unit , the breakfasts we ordered were delicious and the motel hosts were very nice . Also there was no road traffic noise from our unit.

I arrived in Napier and checked TripAdvisor for places to stay. Fairley was close and highly rated. What good luck! I was given a bright, hugely spacious and well appointed room at a great price. I decided to stay a second night and I am looking forward to a walk to one of the convenient restaurants. Probably the fish restaurant... More

The location on the main route into/ out of Napier is great, with generous parking. A lovely modern motel with a fresh feel, spotlessly presented - the beds are 'luxurious'. I loved walking to the beach and along some of the path around the adjacent lagoon; the hosts are charming and helpful.

Thank you for the review and we are pleased you were able to enjoy some of the surrounds. Walking around the estuary , the beach , and the cycleways make beautiful walks and then if you need to quench your thirst it is only a short walk over to Ahuriri with its many cafes & restaurants. Our perfect location More
