Area Information

Hastings: a heck of a lot of happiness!

The Hawke’s Bay region is home to some major districts all fascinating and worth a visit. There are two neighbouring cities, however, which are a little bit different: Hastings and Napier.

Hastings is about eighteen kilometres inland of Napier; these two are known as the ‘Twin Cities’. Combined they are the two biggest urban areas in Hawke’s Bay and together they form some of the most interesting, eclectic and productive districts around.

Nick-named ‘The fruit bowl of New Zealand’ due to the perfect growing conditions (another reason to visit if you enjoy gorgeous weather!) Hastings is also well established as the agricultural hub of Hawke’s Bay.

Fruit orchards, vineyards, boutique and artisan food production have created a diverse (and tasty) opportunity for visitors to indulge appetites not only for quality eating and drinking but also for exploring.

Flat terrain has given rise to the development of now famous cycle trails which, coupled with the plethora of (around 70!) destination wineries on offer, have created a whole tourism industry in their own right.

Central city Hastings is the economic heart of Hawke’s Bay and chock-full of intriguing shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The night market, wine and food festivals and music festivals in the region are well known and a strong drawcard to many keen New Zealand and international visitors.

Your hosts at Fairmont Motor Lodge can show you the best way to see this beautiful region and make the most of your Hawke’s Bay destination. We know you’ll want to come again.

Hastings has your happiness at heart

Beautiful and clean. We are travelling around NZ with family and friends and Stayed in Hastings at the Fairmont motor lodge. The accommodation was very clean and tidy and all amenities were provided. A little deli located directly door had everything we needed. Couldn’t fault the motor lodge at all. The location was around 4km

Best motel accommodation. Sometimes you plan ahead, other times you just take a chance and this was the best chance by far. The room was quiet, clean, had all the facilities to make the stay a very pleasant experience. I found that most places we stayed in had something not quite right with them but this was not one of them. From can opener to swimming pool, this had the lot, and on top of that very friendly hosts

Nice clean rooms, layout great ….we were a with a group and had 3 rooms …there was a pool and that was fab , the owners were super, accommodating with parking of a huge race trailer and power needed for that trailer coming down well after office hours ..very friendly owners and I couldn’t speak more highly

We stayed in Hastings only one night and I am glad we chose the Fairmont, it was fresh, clean and the lovely couple that own it were so accommodating and helpful. We visited hasting on our travels to cycle some of the wonderful tracks, our hosts provided maps and bus timetables so we could find our way to Napier. On our way back we got caught in a rain shower and even though it was after midday and we checked out early morning, they let us freshen up in our room. What excellent service, I would recommend staying at the Fairmont.

We booked this Motel online. The Booking service was quick and very efficient. The pricing for this Motel is very reasonable. Our welcome at Reception was very efficient and friendly. We were greeted by the Owners in a friendly manner and welcoming manner. Reception staff were very helpful. This Motel is very accessible, clean and comfortable. Rooms are very clean and refreshing. The bed was very comfortable. The shower had very good water pressure. A very enjoyable place to stay.

Stayed while in Hastings area for work. Clean, comfortable and good wifi. Everything I needed! The Topped off with friendly staff too.The place is also in a sweet location. A short drive in the main town and easy to head out of town too as it’s on the main road (but didn’t sound like it!) Definitely would stay here again without a second thought.
