This motel certainly is beach front, although some rooms do face the city so check when you book. This is quite a big motel, and some rooms are up a couple of flights of stairs, so check if you have limited mobility or a lot of gear (Kids). Our room was on the first floor, clean, a double bed with...

We got to Napier in late afternoon on a rainy cold day. There was a electric wall heater in the narrow hallway facing the opposit wall which was about a meter apart. Great design you builders/architects responsible!!! After a while however the heat reached the other areas of the apartment. The little mobile heater left in the living room was...

We stayed on a GrabOne deal that included two nights' accommodation in a room with an ocean view for $199. Booking was easy and the receptionist was also friendly and efficient upon check in. Our room was on the first floor, right next to the metal stairs used to access the first and second floors - which meant that we...

Having stayed here a few times in the past, my parents and I had no hesitation in rebooking for our current visit to Napier. Sadly, we were completely disappointed with our booking. The Beachfront is nothing short of tired and plain worn out!! Scuff marks all over the walls and skirting boards, chipped tiles, grotty grouting and peeling scruffy units...

Wonderfully clean, situation ideal as we walked everywhere. Could do with a makeover but hey, couldn't we all? Would be nice to have help with bags to get to top floor rooms up the staircase. I know, it's a motel however, would have given 5 stars for that additional service. I'll come again

Really disappointed that these motels are not being upgraded over the years. I have stayed here in the past and this trip it was evident that it is seriously overdue for some TLC. Bathroom silicone and grouting overdue for clean/replace, Mattresses overdue for replacing. Motel owners if you want to continue to charge the rates of the newer motels spend...

Make sure you choose a room in the northern wing, as the rooms straight opposite reception are very noisy. This is due to the large metal spiral staircases outside the units. When guests use them it sounds like a herd of elephants on the rampage. Also, the TV system isn't set up properly, so you don't end up seeing the...

Very clean and comfortable rooms with a spacious kitchen/dining/living area. Owners and staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating of our requirements. The hotel is situated centrally allowing easy access both by vehicle for day trips and on foot for exploring the town. Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and were very happy with our stay. What first struck us is how clean the room was - even those "forgotten" places like window blinds. Nothing about the room felt "dodgy" at all. All the amenities we needed were easily accessible and the coffee plunger was a nice little extra. The...
