One of Hawke's Bay's newest luxury air-conditioned motels - the place where those in the know choose to spend their time while staying in Napier. What makes the Ballina Motel special is our small size allows us to focus on those important little details and provide personal service to ensure that your stay is both a relaxing and memorable experience. All our spacious rooms are air-conditioned (to provide some relief from Hawke's Bay's high summer temperatures and warmth in winter), and furnished to a high standard of quality which is reflected in our 4 Stars rating. Our quiet residential location (there are no crashing waves, barking seals, trucks or trains thundering through the night to keep you awake) ensures that you arise fully refreshed to take on the new day's challenges and fully enjoy the great Hawke's Bay lifestyle and glorious weather. Centrally located in Taradale midway between Napier and Hastings city centers - ensures that you are close to all of Hawke's Bay's diverse range of activities and attractions. Within easy walking distance of the cafe's restaurants, bars, and the main shopping center of Taradale. If you are looking for more than a standard motel, but not the excessive expense of a hotel then you are in the right place. Our accommodation makes the ideal base for visitors to Hawke's Bay.

Stayed here with my wife and child. Good size unit. Could do with a freshen up. Spa bath didn't work which dissapointed my 6 year old. Given a welcome pack with sanitizer etc which was nice. Welcoming staff. Would stay again.

Fine place to stay in the Taradale area. Spacious room with kitchenette and balcony..Very clean and well kept. No amenities, but just a short walk to town. Has an open shower area that is rather slippery - could use something to hold on to. Would recommend.

Ballina Motel is very roomy and close to Taradale shops which is a plus. Some of the decor is a bit tired but it was clean. There was no outside light by our door and I found this should be rectified as I had trouble on the stairs and opening the door. Otherwise a very pleasant stay.
