Lovely Motel
Really enjoyed our stay, unit had plenty of room and was very clean. Only complaint is - I did not like washing the dishes in the bathroom hand basin.

Napier excellent, hotel so so.
Hotel had great views, was convenient for West Quay, but was a bit soulless as well as being right next door to a fish factory, so a bit smelly! 2-3 miles from centre of Napier so next time will consider somewhere closer. Napier is fascinating - architecture, restaurants and excellent wine tours!

Enjoyable stay in lovely Napier
Great to be able to sit in the sun on the balcony and look at the Marina. However the bathroom could do with a rearrangement or refurbishment. The spa bath was on legs, making it very hard to get in and out of and quite dangerous. They have obviously taken out the original corner shower and put it over the bath meaning that you had to make this step into the bath regardless of whether you were using it as a bath or shower. We think the bathroom could do with a make over as it obvious that they have tried to cover up the original taps etc from the original shower. Apart from that we really enjoyed our stay. Good bed and plenty of room.

Dont take children
we had 2 children and needed more space 1 teen and 1 10 yr old we noted this at booking. i had to pay before I got a full run down on the room.not enough beds, so I rang the motel, he was going to sort it. we arrived next day but it wasn't sorted he'd forgotten us. in all fairness he gave us a second room and didn't charge us for it. it seems that children are not considered as far as accomodation is concerned. I will leave them with relatives in future.
