Rooms are not modern but in very good condition, clean and tidy and everything we needed at our fingertips for 5 night stay.

We stayed 2 nights in the holiday period - Jan 2017 so choices were limited. The unit was average in facilities, poor information for clients - restaurant information sheet was 6 years old and obviously prices had changed. Staff were very helpful regarding places to dine. The bed was saggy on one side obviously were some people sat as no...

Hello 888gailm. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are very disappointed in the rating that you have given us considering that 1 of the 18 restaurant menus in the information booklet was out of date. Of the 18 menus, the local RSA is the only establishment that alters there prices but does not tell us...

We stayed at Edgewater Motor Lodge for 3 nights including New Years Eve. We thought this motel offered incredible value for the location, quality and the time of year. The rooms are well appointed, with everything you could possibly need. Our room on the ground floor had access to a plunge pool (cold!), outside tables, and easy entrance from the...

When I'm looking for a room with a view in Napier, Edgewater usually comes out on top. Best combination of location/price/facilities. Not as flash as some places no doubt, and parking is always a bit tight, but the price is usually right. Myself, my mum, and my niece stayed in room 18 which is on level 1 with a separate...

Hello Glennomeister. Thank you for your great review and score. Room 18 was refurbished in August 2016 and it is good to see that you enjoyed what we have done. The fire works did play this year was the best I have seen. Regards Roy

Lovely spot on the seafront. Friendly service but an average motel. Clean room but no hot water on our last morning. I know things go wrong but the response was not as you would expect. Perhaps a small refund?

Romaxbert, Owner at Edgewater Motor Lodge, responded to this review

Hello Gill G. Thank you for your review and the comment on how clean the unit was. The 2 year old hot water system that serves 12 of our 20 units developed an intermittent fault. By the time it had taken to get the only Rinnai service agent in the Bay to look at it and then get the part...

Great food and people. The edgewater was within walking distance of the city center, an Art Deco area, repaired during the 30's earthquake. Free wifi, laundry facilities. I just wish I'd had more time to explore this area.
