We stay at medium priced accommodation in Napier at least once a year. Usually, we try to get something on the beachfront and often have average experiences. this time, we tried Palm City. It was a lot cheaper, really clean, and within great walking distance to the restaurant we ate at. No complaints.
Firstly we must say that the receptionist was very helpful, polite and was willing to return our money without problem. This motel is tired...... the fittings and furnishings need complete renovation, and the rooms themselves definitely need a deep-clean. So much so that we left and stayed at another motel in town. As it is, I would not recommend.
We were staying overnight as apart of a journey south and chose it partly for its proximity to a sporting event we attended. The room was adequate. The TV coverage was poor, the wifi not great. Checking in was quite difficult because we struggled to get their attention.
Modern and clean unit, just out of the main town area but close enough for convenience, quiet and well appointed. Attached restaurant is worth a visit. The food was delicious with large servings. We did find the self service access a bit odd on arrival, but it was a Sunday and everybody needs some time off . We would stay again.
Had a great time staying at the Palm City Motor Inn, it was so hot when we arrived I immediately went in there lovely outdoor swimming pool, was very refreshing, thank goodness for aircon. Very quiet and peaceful place to stay, easily walked into town from the motel and supermarkets were handy. The staff were very friendly and the young women in the reception was very helpful made sure we were happy and was very organised as we were being up by bus at the motel for our concert, well worth the $40 each on the bus and we didn’t have to take our car. There is a restaurant at the motel and we had a lovely meal. We met some nice people along the way😀
This is a wonderful Motor Inn. The rooms are spacious and the kitchenette well supplied. The AC and television work well. Bathtub-spa is simply sublime. The staff are super friendly. And there is a very nice little restaurant attached to the hotel. It has everything one could need. I highly recommend staying here.
This motel is a great location and easy to find. Even though its on the main road, the rooms are quiet. Rooms are clean and spacious rooms. The owners are friendly and helpful. Fantastic to have a restaurant on site and room service. This is now my motel of choice in Napier.
Stayed at the Palm inn for 3 nights, very friendly staff, very close to the CBD. Rooms are very modern & tidy. The restaurant had a good selection and the food was delicious. Spa & swimming pool were clean & tidy. I’d definitely book again & happily recommend the Palm City Motor Inn.
It is a family friendly, nice and clean motel. We loved it. It was only 5 minutes away from CBD and Marine Parade. Little pool was wonderful and our kid enjoyed the trampoline as well. We recommend it.
Booked more than a week in advance and asked for a particular room we'd stayed in before. Was phoned early afternoon while we were at a function to see what time we'd arrive as the office would be closed by 4. (even though notice on door says reception open till 8pm) Arrived 5 to 4 to find room we'd specifically requested, was occupied. The receptionist was dismissive--said she didn't know what had happened as she didn't make the booking. The room had a dark grey carpet that was spotted black in places. Made the room look and feel very grotty. WILL NEVER RETURN OR RECOMMEND THIS MOTEL.
