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

We stayed in a 4th floor room, which was very spacious,overlooking the Pacific.There was plenty of storage space and a nice bathroom.The reception staff were helpful and friendly.The only drawback is that the hotel fronts onto the road leading to the port and at times there is noice from passing trucks- the higher the floor you stay on the noise...

This hotel is at the end of the main beach rd of Napier, but still an easy walk into town. We were on the first floor of the hotel and had to go up a ramp to get to our room. Better than stairs as I have a mobility issue. Our room was spacious enough for our needs with a... More

Thank you for your review. I a sorry you did not enjoy our signature bedding. The purpose of double sheeting the duvet is for hygiene purposes, this is common practise in New Zealand. Thanks for taking to the time to let us know your thoughts. warm regards Kerryann More

My husband and I had a room on the 6th floor overlooking the ocean. Beautiful and quiet. All staff were extremely helpful, even lending us an umbrella for our walk around Napier. Room was comfortable and hotel was convenient for walking to see art deco architecture. A hotplate or toaster would have been nice.

Great room with great views. Stayed as 2 couples in 2 rooms with an adjoining room between the 2 rooms. The extra space between the 2 rooms is great as a family focal point to get together & relax. 3 couples travelling together.

Good location for exploring Napier. Has a great view of the Ocean. The room was a standard room and the bed was a bit soft for us but good for a stopover on our way up the North Island. The view was the best thing and I believe all the rooms have a view.
