The spa bath was one of the reasons we had chosen this hotel, along with the fact that the hotel had been recommended to us by my brother and sister in law when they had stayed there... More

We were traveling in a small motorhome and just needed some extra comforts for a night. Somewhere to have a warm shower, wash the clothes, have a good long night's sleep and perhaps do our own cooking. We drove along the foreshore and found these three storey apartments overlooking the ocean. We decided that if we could get an apartment... More

Very pleasant room on the third floor overlooking the beachfront. Traffic noise was minimal even with the balcony door open. Very clean and tidy throughout and the kitchen had a good selection of plates, pots and pans etc. On the down side, the rounded/warped base of the frying pan proved a challenge on the flat top hob and was pretty...

We had a great visit to Napier and stayed 3 nights at The Nautilus. The unit was very tidy with a generous spa bath. The hotel location was convenient to get to city center by car or foot. We would not hesitate to recommend The Nautilus to our family or friends.

This is my favorite place to stay in Napier. We've stayed twice and both times been very happy with the service and the rooms. We've stayed in the Executive Suite and the Executive studio, and both are of an equally high standard. The spa bath in the room is great, and the kitchen is well stocked with all that you'd... More
