This motel is splendidly located. From any room you have a view of Perfume Point on the harbor. You can walk outside the motel and with a 100 meters you are in the water. It's amazing. So for the view alone its worth staying here but the rooms are also quite nice. We stayed in a 2BR unit that was... More

the motel is in a good location and is clean but needs to be updated, there is no air-conditioning or fans in the units considering Napier climate you would think it would be a requirement. The bed was comfy but the pillows were lumpy and flat. Request an upstairs room as it offers more privacy and is a lot quieter... More

The motel offers a great view of Hawke's Bay and is situated on a nice boardwalk which allows easy access to the beach attractions. A play ground is within 100m and restaurants at Ahuriri are well within walking distance. The rooms are clean and comfortable and well appointed. Wifi is complementary

We were disappointed in the Harbour View despite it having a good rating on Trip Advisor. Our room had a good view of the adjacent hotel car park and not of the sea. An upstairs room would be better. The decor was okay if a bit tired. We were only here for one night.

We stayed here when visiting Napier. You can walk in from here, but there's a scrubby bit that spoils it abit so we took the car. I'm glad we stayed here instead of the middle of Napier. Much nicer to return to in the evening and the restaurants around look nicer. We requested an an upstairs appartment and it was... More

Spent some time tossing up places to stay in napier short notice. We decided on here based on the view.. WOW...forget the motel looks slightly tired. The place is very clean and tidy. Great amenities but didn't like the toiletries. Room we had was quiet and came complete with another bedroom. Bed in the lounge or was it lounge in... More

Standard equipped Motel, large room with three beds (1 king size and 1 single bed), large bathroom and good kitchen facilities. The sea view is fantastic and this alone is worth an overnight stay, allthough the overall atmosphere of the Motel was a bit steril.

We had an upstairs room with great views out to sea. The suite was spacious - open plan kitchen, dining living with sliding door to the deck, separate bedroom and bathroom - again spacious. Opening windows for fresh air which I love. A container of fresh milk for the room - yay. Probably needs some refurbishment but it was clean... More

A business trip turned into sheer luxury wit excellent view, amenities and service. One could not ask for better views, comfort, close to restaurants, bars, breakfast and everything else you could want while on a business trip. As it is also absolute waterfront, I will be back for relaxation.

Went for the Art Deco reputation of Napier but were very impressed with whole place. Beautiful location, lovely room with fantastic view. And the spa ♨ bath 🛀 was a bonus! Very friendly and helpful staff.
