Stayed here for a few nights on our travel of East Coast NZ. Was very impressed with the man at front desk on arrival, showed us to our room, brought up some cold milk, and told us what we needed to know about Napier! Room Was comfortable, we decided to eat in one night (get over eating out all the...

Just stopped overnight driving from Wellington to Mahia for a friends wedding but this was a great place to stay. Clean & tidy, comfortable bed and great value for money. I would definitely stay again!

Lovely clean room with excellent facilities. Handy to city for shopping and restaurants, and to the beach for walking and swimming. Friendly hosts. Off street parking in front of units, and a great smoking or outdoor area.

we turned up later in the evening and called ahead, and the lady on reception (on the phone) was very welcoming and the man when we arrived was also. Our stay was quiet and the motel is close to dairy, pharmacy, beach etc. The room was great, very clean, modernised. It is an older motel and we usually would choose...

A friendly welcome, a spacious and clean room with a parking space right in front. The pool was cool and refreshing, the hot tub soothed aching muscles. Right outside is a nature reserve where you can spot some wildlife and amazing sunsets. Walk out the back and just down the road is the beach. What more could you ask for?

We have stayed here many times and have not been disappointed. The staff are always accommodating and friendly, the motel is clean, quiet, comfortable with good parking and close to where we need to be in town. Perhaps the showers are average, but taking into account the rates, we think this motel represents excellent value. We have no complaints whatsoever...

Booked into motel because it said you could hire bikes and was within walking distance of Ahuriri. Pretty long walk to Ahuriri - so felt misled about this and took car to restaurant. Bikes were rusted and the wheel was falling off one. Did not hire. Also queried why price quoted was higher than on web booking services and told...

I am afraid there must be some kind of mix up, as no one has even viewed the bikes in last 2 weeks, they have been stored away, not in view and the wheels are certainly not falling off, so this comment is completely untrue. As far as prices being different, that is also untrue. Firstly we do put any...
