The room was very spacious and had a huge deck that over looked the marine parade and a beautiful view of the ocean. The spa bath was amazing was huge and fitted... More

This is the second time my wife and I have enjoyed the Nautilus luxury. A big spa in our bedroom was heaven sent after we had spent the day planting native trees on a rural property in the Bay. But it was our dining experience that made our weekend even more memorable. We had previously only had breakfast in the... More

We just checked out of The Nautilus after a 2 night stay and were extremely impressed! Although admittedly it doesn't look really flash from the outside.. Don't judge a book by its cover because the rooms are stunning! We stayed on the 2nd (middle) floor and had a beachfront view right onto marine parade. It appears that all rooms do... More

Most impressed. All the comforts of home and MORE! Friendly staff both at reception and in the restaurant. Great value, location and view. Comfy bed (very important!). Lovely bright bathroom and furniture. Cannot fault it on anything and it will certainly be the first and only place we stay when back in Napier next time :-)

There were three of us-my daughter, husband and I. We took the family room with a queen sized bed and in another room, our daughter has two single beds. We loved our stay so much! The rooms were clean, had modern furnishings, coffee plunger (complete with coffee grinds). There is a fabulous view from our room to the sea. We... More

It was fantastically clean, spacious and comfortable with good quality furnishings. The spa was huge. My sense is it is run by folks who are proud of the experience that they deliver. Very central, it's a stroll into the town centre.

The Nautilus has excellent views east over the ocean. It is the newest of a number of hotels/motels on Marine Parade and the rooms are well equipped. Mine had a king sized bed in the main area and two king single beds in a separate bedroom. The bathroom was bright and modern with a large circular spar bath and a... More

Great location - spacious room & a great spa!! Bed was huge and the balcony great for fresh air. Parking looked like could be an issue - so get in early. Ocean across the road and a running/bike path through the park. Lovely town and good accommodation

While touring the North Island of New Zealand in September of 2013 we stopped in the sea side city of Napier on the East Coast. What a beautiful little city right on the ocean.
