We stayed in adjacent rooms with some friends and facilities in each of the supposedly same rooms were very different, eg one room had full size fridge and cooking facilities but no sink to wash up in. Also bathroom ok in one room but not the other - seems some refurbishment might be needed or underway? Overall it is not...

I booked Marineland Motels at the last minute as decided that I would like to be near the sea in Napier. Was a great location close to Westshore Beach. The room was nice and comfortable and there was plenty of space in there. It was nice being able to go to the beach and handy to come back and have...

Great location and setting. The beach on one side and the estuary on the other (with lovely sunset on estuary side). Rooms were very big and beautifully appointed with lovely private courtyard. Would rather have had an outside pool due to the warm weather but was pleasantly surprised by this pool. Reminded me of being in old fashioned baths. Was...

The soft furnishings in the room were lovely, pitty the same level of upgrade hasnt been done to the tired bed, tired carpet, tired bathroom and tired exterior. Its an okay spot with the beach very near but we had to drive to eat well.

a quick trip to Napier and last minute booking at Marineland Motels provided a nice surprise. The owners were friendly and considerate and we really enjoyed our stay. Arriving in Napier on a freezing cold and wet 'summers' day and to find that the heaters had been turned on - showed the level of customer care experienced! The rooms were...

From the minute we arrived we felt like we were in heaven. The managers were lovely, our room had a view of the ocean from our apartment and it was lovely to have a couple of restful days in the middle of our frantic holiday. It's not a five star luxury hotel but well worth every cent the room was...

Thank you Tanda, we are pleased the 3 bedroom Apartment helped you recharge your batteries. We do not try to achieve 5 star but are pleased our 4 star rating is proving quite appropriate - Evan

This motel is clean, easy to get to, with good amenities and great service. Primarily selected because it promised my four favourite things in a motel (private courtyard, a spa bath, a great shower, and a king-sized bed), I was a little disappointed that my private courtyard wasn't really private. Anyone using the pool could see inside my room through...

From the time we got thereto the time we left we felt welcomed and important. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean and amenities excellent. Close to beach for lovely long walks and a great starting point to tiki tour around Napier.

I stayed here in June but only now have the chance to write a review, I have travelled to Napier a few times and always enjoyed myself. This motel was quiet and clean, perfect for a lone traveller like myself. I don't like to spend too much when I travel so the price was ok for me. The staff were...

Great location with our unit being at the rear and facing the beach. Great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Our UK friends were as impressed also. Negotiated a good rate thanks to Carol. Highly recommend. Also enjoyed the fish n chips that a previous reviewer referred to.
