Located near the city center and close to Supermarkts this Hotel was a good choice. Our Room was on the second floor, spacious, fully equipped and clean. We used the BBQ downstairs near the pool and the owner helped us to set it up. We were missing some olive oil which they gave us right away. Very friendly and would...

We only stayed here one night but it was a great place to stay, quiet even though it was on the main road. Management were very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and tidy, loved the spa bath. Would stay here again.

group of like minded people stayed at this Motel again this year. The rooms are lovely, clean but kitchen was not well stocked for 4 ppl in one unit. The beds were clean and comfy, showers were great. Plenty of shampoo, body lotion, really enjoyed the ambience :-)

Mgement were very friendly & helpful. Motel well positioned within Napier boundaries with shops close by. Clean & Tidy but easy furniture sparse for a 4 day stay. Restaurant good ( opening days limited ) but could be open at least on a Friday?

We stayed for one night on our "road trip". The motel is in a convenient location and easy to find. Staff are friendly & welcoming. We had a nice clean, spacious room with a very comfortable bed. There is an outdoor swimming pool.

The four of us had just driven down from Karapiro in the rain. The Palm City had everything we needed, just as advertised. We were able to relax, dine in the house restaurant and enjoy a couple of wines without having to do any more driving. It met our needs completely, and the staff were friendly which is always a...

Stayed for two nights in very comfortable rooms, only thing missing was an air conditioner. Restaurant was great, try the steak or schnitzel. The schnitzel was huge and well cooked. The owners are very friendly and accomodating. Would definitely stay there again. Oh and a nice pool too.

We had a one-bedroom unit. The double bed in the bedroom, and the single bed in the lounge were comfortable. The bedcoverings were fine, but the sheets were a bit thin. A lamp by the single bed would have been helpful. The kitchenette worked fine, but a few more plates and cups would have been useful. Bathroom fine but spa...
