Arrived on a cold night. Staff friendly. Heater was already on in my room so lovely and warm! Fabulous room. Wonderful toiletries, shoe shine kit came in very handy! Most of all the most comfortable bed ever! Love to know where they get their mattress topper/protector from. Great stay! Thank you.

A big thank you to management, reception and staff for making our recent stay in Napier such a pleasurable experience. The location is handy to CBD, rooms spacious, clean and comfortable, views are gorgeous and staff friendly and welcoming. Would recommend Te Pania over and again! Virginia

I have stayed before but never thought to write a review until now prompted by a few days here last month in a climate only Napier can produce when it is wet and cloudy elsewhere.

Very easy place to stay. Very clean, friendly and helpful. Lovely views over marine parade. The windows looking over marine parade were very covered in salt spray. It made it hard to look out. Im sure this is always going to be a problem for all accomodation along the sea front. I enjoyed this hotel.

Thank you for your kind comments. A word about the salt spray..happens every time we have an Easterly storm, which we have just had. We clean the windows on a revolving schedule so that they are all washed at least twice a month. Thankyou for your supportive comments of the Hotel we look forward to your return . kind regards...

We stayed one night at the hotel. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Though our room was facing the direction of the sea, we were disappointed to find that our room on the 2nd floor only had the view of the street and nearby buildings! We had dinner at the restaurant and the standard of the food was average.... More

Thank you for takign the time to review Te Pnaia. I am sorry that we were unable to get you to a higher floor during your recent stay. The sea views from the 2nd floor are just as expansive and they have the added bonus of being below the street light level which means less light pollution. Still a great... More

Scenic Circle has the advantage of the best views in Napier. We asked for an end room, as there are lots of extra windows, and a view of the fountain - my nana got the end room, which she loved, and we got the next room along with a lovely view of the lit up trees and the fountain. We... More

This is the second time this year that we have stayed here and once again we loved it. Great helpful and friendly staff, rooms are a great size, very clean and have everything you could want. Lovely comfortable bed and the view over the Bay is wonderful, it really tells you that you are in Napier.
