The owners are from the UK and in NZ 11 years. They were a pleasure to meet and very welcoming! They showed us to a recently renovated unit instead of the one we'd booked which was nice of them. Yes the units are dated but it takes time to renovate and they are spotless and excellently equipped (with a very...

Lovely, spacious, clean and well equipped. Good location for a wander into town. Rachael and David are very friendly hosts and it is very good value for money. Good shower. My only quibble was that we had noisy neighbours who kept banging the (clean) pool gate.

We were delighted to find a motel in a quiet street and within walking distance for fit people to walk into town. Our unit backed onto Nelson Park and the petanque courts and it was pleasurable to sit outside in the private garden and sunshine. The pool was an added bonus on such a hot Hawke's Bay day. Rachel and...

We had two nights here and are VERY happy to recommend it. Rachel and Dave are ideal motel people, welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room was spotlessly clean and had all the facilities we were wanting. (Even adequate towel rails!) Motel is in a residential area so there was no early morning commercial traffic. Units are being updated and the...

We booked our 2 nights on line. Later we received an email asking if we would like flannelette sheets as it is autumn. On arrival painting at the pool fence was underway. This was our 22nd stay and Peter and Ann were courteous and helpful. My wife was given a bag of mandarins (yummy) on departure. I was given a...

Maybe not like a luxurious motel, could look a bit old but clean, ordered and quiet place with a little and safe pool. Very well located, ten minutes far from the beach it suits for couples or families. Owner is a nice and honest guy who gives wise advices. Don't hesitate to ask if something is missing. We stayed 4...
