Once again we were pleased we stayed here. Nice spacious room. Very tidy and clean. Nice bed. Large bathroom. Very quiet. Balcony but too nippy to sit outside. Arrived late afternoon so dumped and went to dinner at East Pier which was just outside the room, very convenient. Will stay again.

A good size room that is clean and tidy but not beautiful. Position seems a little noisy but the room is well insulated so the sound did not bother us. The heater, while it worked well, was a bit noisy also, so we ended up turning it off. The waterfront is in front of the room but in the morning,... More

Another wonderful stay. Great location. Very quiet with a great view of the harbour and port. Very spacious room with all you need. Large bathroom and spa bath. Great bed. Good heating. Very clean. Outdoor furniture for relaxing and looking at fishing boats coming and going. Shame we arrived late and left early as on a business trip. Would love... More

We love Ahuriri, and the location of this motel is perfect. If you have a ground floor unit, your doors open out onto the grass which stretches out to the waterside. At night you have hear the waves, and not a lot else. A little noise from the higher floors, but people are generally considerate. The unit was comfortable enough... More

Ít's a few years since we visited. We had booked an executive unit but make sure you ask for cooking facilities when you book if self catering.Initially an electric frypan and element were offered but than a downstairs disbled unit was provided with full cooking facilities, large fridge/freezer and walk -in shower. We extended our stay and were cheerfully accommodated... More

We pulled in late in the evening to a very friendly reception, and the offer of their best room for a good price, and if we wanted a bit more time in the morning, to just ask. Got the milk and even the internet password without having to ask for it. The room, on the top floor, was supreme! Balcony,... More

Spacious, clean & modern rooms with great ocean views & pleasant seafront walks right outside the door. Not close to main attractions but a few good restaurants close by - fine as long as you have your own transport.

stayed in a upstairs room. Amazing views and comfortable accommodation. My only gripe would be the two cane chairs as lounge furniture wasn't very comfortable. This isn't 5 star accommodation and the prices reflect that, but the views are 5 star plus. Have stayed here in the past and would stay here again.

Stayed three great nights here. Lovely location - a couple of miles from Napier centre but super position with good sea views and access across the grass to the only swimming beach in the Town. Water clear and warm. Staff incredibly helpful and very nice spacious, clean, comfortable apartment. Great place to stay. And Napier is such an interesting Town... More
