Really a great stay. Very comfortable unit with more amenities than most. The little things count but the feeling of welcome extended to guests, not only welcome to the property but the city as a whole is something special. Great advice on where to go how to get there and what to do. The family run this property and all...

Just love the spa bath. The kitchen has all you need and there are all the TV channels I needed. The cooked breakfast was great, served on time and with a smile. The range of local information held at the reception covered our local touring, and the taxi service back to the aitport was prompt and reasonable. 5 stars all...

We had another very enjoyable stay at Deco City Motor Lodge for the Art Dec weekend. It was obvious from the happy buzz throughout the courtyard that many of the guests were returning for 2nd 3rd maybe 8th time. It's because the hosts make all their guests so welcome. They treat everyone like family and do their best to ensure...

Staying at Deco City is a wonderful experience. The facilities are obviously consistently upgraded. Little extras in room such as shoe shine. Our fridge was quiet as a mouse. Lovely fluffy towels and the people are very welcoming and accommodating. Questions answered in friendly manner with a few jokes thrown in to make you feel at home. Only place to...

We have stayed here every year for the last 5 years for the Napier Art Deco weekend. There are many choices but we find this property to be consistently good in their service, amenities and cleanliness. We had a two bedroom unit which had a spa bath, massive bathroom and two good sized rooms, two TV's good air con and...

We drove up to the motel to check in, first impressions great layout, good location. On check in the receptionist was warm, friendly & efficient. Unfortunately she couldn't find our booking as it transpired I had mistakenly made the booking but instead of 18/02, I'd booked it for the wrong month 18/03! (Booking made on the cellphone - big mistake!)....

So pleased you were happy with the outcome and that the room was great. We all have moments when do do something silly (like book a wrong date and I have done that) . Napier is a great place for a holiday and if the accommodation meets or exceeds expectations that is even better. Thanks for choosing us as your...

Although our upstairs studio only had the minimum kitchen facilities it was spacious and had a large, fully tiled bathroom with a huge corner spa bath (with shower over for a quick rinse or hair wash!) Staff were extremely helpful when we asked to stay for 2 nights instead of just the one we had booked. the receptionist shuffled things...

Pleased you enjoyed your stay and what both the city and Deco City had to offer made you want to stay another night. Our units are large and pleased you appreciated that. There is one car park per unit and sorry works best if they are not numbered as someone would always have to walk further, and may say BUT...
