Positive Reviews

Large, clean apartments

The apartments at the motel are large and fully-equipped with everything needed for a multi-night stay. Travellers report the apartments are modernly decorated and spotless as well, making for stress-free holiday while staying there.

Outstanding location

Visitors love the motel's position because it is directly across from the beach and right on Marine Parade, one of Napier's top dining and shopping areas. Guests report being able to walk to countless restaurants within minutes, ensuring they could always find something to eat.

Friendly and accommodating hosts

The owners of the motel live on-site and are always around to answer questions and provide local area insight. Visitors appreciate the kindness of the hosts and say they do an excellent job of accommodating everyone.

Negative Reviews

Not enough parking

There is on-site parking at the motel, but travellers say there are only ten spots for 12 apartments. Therefore, some people must park on the street when the motel is at capacity.

Limited Wi-Fi availability

Wi-Fi at the motel is through a third-party provider and vouchers are needed to access it. Although the vouchers are free at reception, visitors complain about having to return to the front desk for a new voucher whenever they run out of data.
