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.

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

Great location, nice views over beach area. Went to Globe theatre for a movie and then Milk and Honey for dinner - lovely treat. Very friendly and helpful staff, with lovely spacious room - every thing you need - would recommend! Only issue was industrial fan from across road from Hot Chick.

Lovely view out to the main beach, close to everything, walking distance to shopping, cafes, and supermarket. Nice and clean with large spa in room, most relaxing. Well appointed room, nice and warm with morning sun coming in.
