We had a lovely stay here. Handy to town, the Museum and the Aquarium, it was a great base to explore from. Fell in love with this city, with it's beautiful public art and upkeep of public places. Will certainly try to get back here again. VERY happy to see it is also pet-friendly, if only we lived closer!

The rooms are clean and minimalist, nothing fancy. The location is great, close to marine parade, ocean spa and eating places. We didn't hear any other guests all weekend. Overall, would recommend. I was a bit grossed out to see they advertise rooms for dogs. I hope they keep a few rooms aside for dogs, I would hate it if... More

Thank you for your review. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. Please do not be grossed out re the Dog Friendly rooms, this is becoming more of a standard practise in New Zealand now, it has long been common practise in Europe and The United States. No dog EVER shares a bed, we have a fantastic bedroom package for... More

My sister and I stayed here for one night on a short trip to Napier. The Hotel's location is excellent - easy to find, across the road from the beach with great views (lit-up at night time), next to a cafe, plenty of parking. Every room has a view. The room was clean, modern, well-appointed and the beds were very... More

Me and my wife stayed here the day after our wedding as we needed a place to relax and unwind and sleep from the night before. On arrival the hotel manager congratulated us handed our keys to the best room I believe in the hotel, room 621 with an interconnecting lounge. Not long as we were in the rom unpacking... More

Room was clean, spacious, well presented and well maintained, staff were friendly and helpful and the bed was super comfortable. Watching the sunrise over the sea from the sixth floor was stunning. No complaints here.

This hotel is right on the esplanade across from the War Memorial conference centre. The views from the top 3 floors look out over the lower buildings to the surf and curve of the beach beyond. Lovely at night with the window open hearing the crashing waves. Room decent, well appointed, all facilities were good with the exception of a... More

As most of my reviews it was yet another conference visit which brought me to the Te Pania. It is a slightly curved building und the rooms are only on the one side facing the Pacific. Between the hotel and the beach is only a street and the War Memorial Center and a Spa. So once you have a room... More

We had a great time in napier. We were given an upgrade which was very welcome with two children. The room was spacious, clean and the view was beautiful. The team member on check in was friendly. We have been to napier quite a few times and we will always try and stay at this hotel now.

Stay here a lot. Biggest issue is the wifi so slow that it is barely worth having. That is if it works at all. Very seldom does it work on my phone and even on my Laptop it can be a painful process. The hotel offers good wifi for an unreasonable price of 10 a night which is a sixth... More

Te Pania offers ALL guests free wifi. This is limited to 4 devices per room, so if you had more than that plugged in you may well have exceeded the very generous data cap. I can assure you that our guests are generally delighted that we offer this service free. I am sorry you felt that you were disadvantaged. Thank... More
