Had a couple of nights in a studio on the second floor. A nice view from the balcony and the room was pretty good but would benefit from a refresh. Spa pool was a surprise but needed a clean. The small kitchen area was useful and the bed was a decent size. Enjoy…….

The 2 bed villa is a beautiful example of a restoration and is lovely, however it doesnt have any parking and the off street parking is 120m max. While checking later I see that the website doesnt identify parking, however it does clearly state that the room isnt serviced daily, so how about making this clear as well. On our final night our car got coined on the street parking we found so recommend any guest park at the motel and walk the 500m.

We had a 3rd floor, ocean view room. It was a very good unit. Plenty of room with a small deck looking out over the water. There are plenty of places to eat close by, and we recommend going to "Lick this" just up the road. There was a spa bath and a good supply of towels.

Stayed 3 nights. Not impressed. Clean but very shabby room. We had a balcony room on second floor but couldn’t sit on balcony as the traffic noise was horrendous. Many, many HGV thundering down Marine Parade all times of the day and night. The bed smelled musty; the mattress was obviously very old. Definitely would not recommend for those who are expecting a comfortable, quiet break away from it all. So disappointing as our first visit to Napier.

We walked in off the street needing a 2 bedroom room, but a 1 bedroom would have done as we were exhausted after a long trip on our motorbikes. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We were given the last 2 bedroom suite at nearly half the price and offered to have our bikes put in the owners garage to keep them safe. We were so relieved as this was the first place we'd tried on our "winging it" holiday. Yes it's a bit outdated, but cleanliness and comfort of the beds is paramount in our book plus the added extra of a beautiful view. We had one of the best sleeps on our whole trip here. Very handy to eateries as having bikes we had to walk. We'd definitely stay again.
