Quiet noise. People banging on doors

The room was lovely, clean, easily accessible and clean. Sadly never had time to use restaurant etc. but would definitely stay there again.

Poor 2.0
Stench of Fish
Firstly reception staff when we checked in were great but after that I wouldn’t stay here again. Firstly it was incredibly over priced for what it is, secondly it really needs some money spent on it to do it up and more importantly however they spin it, they are next to a fish plant and it really stinks. The stench comes into the room when ever a door or window is opening and in the heat of summer it really is horrendous. Normally I wouldn’t do a review as it’s best to take things as you find them, in this case the smell was so bad it would be wrong not to. Do youself a favour and go somewhere else.

would absolutely come back
The hotel was in a lovely spot and our room overlooked the water. Great location to bars, restaurants. Nice walk around harbour seeing what the local fishermen have landed. Bottle shop over the road for wine to enjoy on the deck. Best fish and chips in NZ just down the road. Enjoyed looking at all the lovely gift ideas in Port O Call... a 5 min walk away.

Enjoyable stay in lovely Napier
Great to be able to sit in the sun on the balcony and look at the Marina. However the bathroom could do with a rearrangement or refurbishment. The spa bath was on legs, making it very hard to get in and out of and quite dangerous. They have obviously taken out the original corner shower and put it over the bath meaning that you had to make this step into the bath regardless of whether you were using it as a bath or shower. We think the bathroom could do with a make over as it obvious that they have tried to cover up the original taps etc from the original shower. Apart from that we really enjoyed our stay. Good bed and plenty of room.

Dont take children
we had 2 children and needed more space 1 teen and 1 10 yr old we noted this at booking. i had to pay before I got a full run down on the room.not enough beds, so I rang the motel, he was going to sort it. we arrived next day but it wasn't sorted he'd forgotten us. in all fairness he gave us a second room and didn't charge us for it. it seems that children are not considered as far as accomodation is concerned. I will leave them with relatives in future.

Place was conveniently located near restaurants and by the airport. Room was really huge and had complete provisions, wish we could have stayed longer.
