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.

Hi, Sorry to hear you where disappointed. We have already done a lot of renovations. Aircon/heat pumps are only 1 year old. 6 month old 40" smart TV's, Linen and new all appliances (Microwave, kettle etc). I have a very good housekeeping staff, and feel disappointed you saying they need a deep-clean. We did offer you a free up grade into a 2 bedroom apartment, plus even though you where in the room for more than 5 hours, we gave you a full refund and locked the room. My sincere apologies we did not reach your expectations. I hope it did not spoil your time in Napier. Kind Regards Jane

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.
