My room overlooking the foreshore in Napier was pretty much perfect. I particularly liked the open wardrobe feature that held your suitcase inside the hanging space. Easy to unpack, or not. I will definitely stay here if I come again.

We travelled to Napier for an Easter full of relaxing, good food and wine. We got all that with an excellent hotel to stay in. We chose the kotorana apartment as there wer 5 of us. It had 3 large bedrooms and plenty of room for us all to have our own space. The views out over the bay were... More

A very friendly greeting from reception on arrival, we had booked a 2 bedroom apartment which was quite spacious and well appointed. Location of the hotel is very good, close to the water and various cafes. Having travelled a reasonable amount I still find it slightly 'primitive' not to have internet access as a no charge inclusion. The Crown offered... More

Dear John Thank you for taking the time to post your comments and pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.

This was our second stay at the Crown, and we still love it. The location is perfect, much quieter than on Marine Parade which is a big plus and lovely views. The rooms are a good size and very clean and comfortable. We will stay again as we feel it is great value for the price.

we spent one night in Napier and enjoyed our time there. The Crown hotel worked out well. They provided dinner recommendations as well as things to do in the area. We did not take advantage of the hotel restaurant or nearby shops.

Comfortable room with nice view of waterfront. Excellent restaurant recommendation from the front desk - Mister D. Highly recommend you try it. We could only stay one night but would love to return for a longer stay.

The Crown is located on the waterfront, with great views across the water. It has a slightly strange layout, in that the reception is in another building and the restaurant is downstairs with its own entrance from the outside, but that did not affect our stay. The room was a good size and comfortable, with a balcony. The room had... More
