This motel is pleasingly deceptive. It looks unassuming outside, but the rooms are great. We had an executive suite with a lovely living area with bi-fold doors opening onto the balcony for fabulous sea views. Aircon means you can keep the windows closed at night....More

Great motel, suited us perfectly for a weekend in Napier. Room service was good, facilities were adequately maintained and staff were very helpful. Would highly recommend! Only negative would be the beds were a bit solid, but to be honest was a very minor issue.
