easy to deal with, room was clean and tidy, not flash but was what we wanted just for one night stay, toilet was a bit old and noisy. decor was a bit tired. parking was a bit tight if people from other rooms have big vehicles.

If your just looking for somewhere to put your head down because your away all day and your out most of the night then this place is fine. But for a family I definitely think the place needs an upgrade in décor both inside and out. The sky package needs and upgrade as it only had one sports channel and... More

I stayed in the Bamboo motel in a busy weekend in Napier, due to the Cricket world cup. The motel is a bit run down, but very clean, the beds are very comfortable and everything you need in a self-contained apartment is present. The hosts own this place for about 8 months now, and they do a great job and... More
