Hi KMJ Many thanks for your review. These tables had recently been refurbished and our cleaners bought it to our attention. I inquired politely to your parents only, not accused. yes the chocolates were a mix up but we sorted this out. Regarding the table and chairs in the room your were staying in there are definitely 4 chairs there for you to sit around the table. We wish you well in your future travels Best wishes

It was an emergency trip to Napier and we got in very late at night but the owner stayed up and waited for us to arrive. He was so friendly. The motel is on Marine Parade, so it is close to the beach, but it is definitely not a beach for swimming.

Hi there Can we get a twin room on the ground floor as I am travelling with my very elderly Mum.
"Request ground floor if you have a lot of luggage."
"Most rooms have the same outlook."
"don't stay in penthouse"
"Never go to this Motel"
"Treat yourself to a penthouse suite!"
