I appreciate that you made the time to review Clive Studios. I also appreciate the feedback regarding the Art Deco theme, wanted to give just a hint of this wonderful era. Please come again and note the Winter Art Deco weekend is 14-16 July, hopefully a better weather report. Thank you Kaye

We had a very comfortable two nights here. It was the best motel we stayed at during our tour of the North Island. The proprietor was very helpful and friendly, it was clean and the bed superb. Also an added bonus was the hotel across the road which served great food. We would definitely stay here again.

Clean and tidy room. Basic & average but OK for the business traveller. there is a fair bit of road noise early in the morning, as it is on a corner. shower size quite small, was OK for me, but would not suit a bigger person.

My wife and I and our daughter were visiting family in Te Awanga and needed a convenient bed for the night. The unit was very clean and comfortable, with a BBQ and outdoor tables, and well set up for the elderly or disabled; safety rails and shower seat.

My room was clean, comfortable and the bed was great but the Motel's strong point is probably the location, very central to Napier, Hastings, Havelock North and Te Awanga (about a 5 - 10 minute drive to anywhere ). If you are into cycling, the cycle trail is about a 2 minute ride from the motel and though I could...

Stayed here over new years. Got a two bedroom apartment with family and kids. This motel is pet friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay here. The rooms were big and spacious. Staff were friendly and helpful. Beds comfortable. Can't say or find anything negative to report on this place. Would definitely consider staying here again when the need arises in future.
