We stay here on a regular basis for business trips. Great view fro all the rooms but the second floor is the best. Walking distance to some nice eateries, East Pier is just across the grass. Not far from the port, so can watch the ships coming and going, also some surfing if surfs up. Good size rooms and bathrooms.... More

We had a ground floor very large room with king size bed, large bathroom and good kitchen facilities. Our room was light and airy, due to the wall to wall double doors which opened up onto the lawns, which led down to the sea. Nice quiet location. It would take five minutes to drive into the centre, but we chose... More

Could have very easily stayed a week or more. We were offered free WIFI and a small carton of milk on arrival. Given a map of town... More

I have stayed at several establishments in Napier, and for my needs, this is my prefered place to stay. It has ample parking, front and rear doors for privacy, is not located within the hustle bustle, and has lovely views. I love the upstairs units where the balcony doors can be left open at night, and you actually hear.... Nothing!... More

This was a great base. The roomy executive one bedroom with kitchenette was perfect for a comfortable three day visit. Rooms look across lawn to the coastal path and bay. A forty minute walk or five minute drive into Napier. Several great cafes nearby.

Ahuriri on the northern edge of Napier. Friendly reception, good clean rooms with typical kiwi kitchenette so you can keep the drinks cold and make your own breakfast. Nice family beach at your feet, plenty of cafes and restaurants within 200m and more trendy cafes at the West Quay a short walk further. Middle of town is 3 minutes by... More

We stayed two nights at the Harbour View Motor Lodge in Napier. What a gorgeous location just in front of the beach and at a reasonable price point. Deirdre was very welcoming and she assigned us a ground floor end unit which was quiet. The only drawback was that it is a disabled unit and the shower stall is wide... More

Two couples and a teenager stayed 2 nights in a two bedroom unit with a kitchenette. It was downstairs opening onto the grassed area with our own patio setting. Close to the board walk which is popular with walkers joggers and cyclists. Very quiet unit though. The bathroom could have had better hanging space for towels for 5 people. They... More

We stayed for 4 nights. The room was big and the bed very comfortable. Lovely view over the bay and a nice balcony. When heavy rain curtailed our activities we were happy to stay in the room reading. The location is great with several restaurants and only a short distance by car to the town centre. The staff were very... More

Had a great 3 night stay in family 2 bedroom unit, 2 couples in our 60's, 2 nice queen beds, fresh towels every day, clean, tidy, great view. Good range of eating places and stores within 3 mins walk, many more options within 10min walk. Location was brilliant if you have a car, less than 10 mins to city centre... More
