    "Convenient and clean"

    This motel is very convenient to Napier CBD(10 minutes walk) and run by a friendly couple who also do free transfers to the local airport. My only suggestion would be that the room didn't have a phone or an info/sheet book about motel/room facilities which meant we had to ask basic questions at reception. For us this was no big deal but done people might not have been happy. Good value for money.

    "Our stay at City Close"

    This stay was our 2nd (and we got the same unit!). The unit was well presented and easy to find and very convenient. The nearby Pak n sav was handy and like a signpost. The staff were helpful and friendly. The price $115 was reasonable and we would have no hesitation in using this Motel again - Thanks Our rating 5

    "Dated decor but handy location"

    City Close is a somewhat dated motel but is only 5 minutes walk from the city centre. We stayed in Unit 6 which is a smallish studio but with a king size bed and full kitchen including stove. The bathroom area is the weakest area - sliding doors separate the kitchen from the tiny bathroom and the bathroom from the toilet. Onsite parking but rather tight. Good WiFi. $6 to wash and dry a load of washing. A Pak n Save and Countdown supermarket within stones throw distance.

    "Excellent"

    This friendly motel is ideally situated. It is very close to the city and the beach. Everything in Napier is in easy walking distance.

    Clean and well kept with friendly and cheerful owners.

    We'd definitely use it again.

    "Good value budget motel"

    1960's NZ motel now dated. However, clean and good value as a budget motel.

    Close to shops and unfortunately the railway line and crossing, but no worse than some more expensive motels.

    My second stay there and I'll probably use it again.

    "Clean and confortable two night stay"

    Our three day, two night stay in Napier was for three guests to attend a wedding. The unit was clean and comfortable with a double and single bed in the bedroom and a single bed in the lounge. Any more than three in the unit would have been cramped. The motel is very central with Pak N Save, Countdown, Marine Parade, Downtown and restaurants all within 5 - 10 minutes walk. Our unit was away from the road however the front unit could be noisey from traffic. This motel may not be suitable for some families as there is little grassed area as most spare space is taken up with car parks. In saying that, Marine Parade is within walking distance where there are vast areas for recretation. Also there was no dining table, only buffet bar stools. The unit was well adequate for our needs [as we were out all day and ate out apart from breakfast] and would suit guests for short stays and business people.

    Hello Richard and Lyn, thank you for your review, the unit you were in is advertised for 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children, we did have a table in there but now we put one in if the guests request it. In regards to your comment about families, we have a good customer base of families and the children have fun playing their games on the concrete and sealed areas, there are some games that just can't be played on grass. I can't understand why you would comment on a unit you have never been in and can only presume about. From comments we have from guests who have stayed in this unit it would appear very few have any problems. As you say we are very central and guests like the fact they can leave their car and walk to restaurants etc. The day of the wedding was such a lovely sunny day I am sure you all had a wonderful time.

    "This place is the best"

    We had a wonderful stay at City Close - it's so handy to everything, as well as being super clean, tidy and quiet. We had the best times of our holiday enjoying the afternoon sun on the patio! Definitely making plans to return soon and will be recommending it to friends and family.

    "Just fine"

    This motel delivers everything we expect, and the only possible gripe would be about the decor: the fittings in the kitchen were pretty old and the walls are painted blockwork with no plaster. But that doesn't matter at all. The bed was big and comfortable, the room was perfectly clean, even the shower was thoroughly cleaned with not a hint of mildew or anything nasty. Really good value in a great location. The big supermarkets are just a few steps away and the city centre is an easy stroll. I've stayed there before and I'd stay there again.

    "Good Straight up Kiwi Motel"

    City Close is a good Straight up Kiwi Motel.

    Few frills and slightly saggy beds.

    Very hot water.

    Close to good food, restaurants and super markets. Close to the center of town.

    ""On the one hand, but on the other....""

    At $140.00 night, it was expensive for what is supplied. Its old, tired - needs lots of money to bring up to modern standard. But it was comfortable, clean & convenient.

    A realistic price would be $85.00 night

    "Comfortable stop over"

    Very handy to town. A bit on the small side but very comfortable.

    Service firstclass.

    Only let down, SKY TV was not available despite all promos saying it is. Minor point, but a bit anoying.

    Nice economical stay.

    "Great!!"

    This is a neat place, so close to Napier centre and well turned out. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable place then look no further. The only drawback is the noise from traffic, as it's right by a busy street. But that's nothing earplugs won't fix....

    I did not see when booking that the motel did not accept American Express cards. This could have been embarrassing, fortunately I had an alternative.

    No problem with the facilities.
