Scored a very good deal for a 2 night stay thru an online coupon offer. Harbour View Lodge is situated in a stunning setting on the Ahuriri water front with views to die for. Our room was very clean. A continental breakfast was part of the deal, perfectly adequate to start the day. WiFi was free but a little temperamental,... More

Great location, much more preferable then the parade when we have the kids. Staff were lovely, room was tidy and had everything we would need. Boardwalk was lovely to the light house, marina and play grounds. If you have a baby/child in a porta cot make sure to ask for extra towels. Unfortunately we had a room with a view... More

My first choice when in Hawkes Bay for business. Quiet location with amazing views of ocean. Better than the views along Marine Parade! Restaurant next door is brilliant too. We had an upstairs 2 bdrm room with views from the lounge and master bedroom. The unit could do with updating but the pricing was fair for the condition. Very clean... More

Our favourite motel in Napier in Ahuriri, over looking the sea and Napier port. We have stayed here several times and always enjoy it.We love sitting on the balcony in an upstairs unit and gazing out at the sea. The units are spotlessly clean and all amenities catered for.

Really enjoyed our stay here even though only one night. Roomy apartment , lovely outlook, spotlessly clean. Walking distance to good fish and chips ! Just one very minor suggestion, a bigger bin. This apartment is well set up for self catering and we had fish and chips but could have used a larger bin.

We had an awesome four night stay in this spacious downstairs room with an awesome view. Being downstairs we had the lovely indoor/outdoor flow and could relax outside with the wonderful ocean view. The rooms was very modern and stylish with very comfortable beds. Would highly recommend and definitely stay there again!

From the moment we arrived, I was extremely pleased with our accomodation choice. The Belgian lady (sorry if I got the nationality wrong) who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. When we got to our room I was surprised by the size of it, and my wife was delighted to see a spa bath. The views over the... More

We had a friendly welcome and enjoyed our stay at this Motor Lodge. It had a great uninterrupted view from the units out to the ocean and the port. All units face the sea, with no road in front of them,( just a walkway and that is quite a distance away) Table and chairs were available to sit outside on... More

We stayed for 2 days as 2 couples so we had 2 rooms. I had specific requirements about king beds, first floor rooms and being fairly close. The receptionist was fantastic and helpful. When we arrived we were early and just checked to see if the rooms were ready. We had a lovely welcome and the Receptionist was great and... More

My last stay at Harbour View a few years ago was a little disappointing as the in-room maintenance (holes in the walls, exposed plastering and broken door locks) was lacking. Returned last month and I could definitely see the improvement....I hope it wasn't just because I was in a different room though! Walls were a lot tidier (perhaps a fresh... More
