The Crown Hotel is close to the shops and Resturants in Ahuriri Napier. The room 104 was on the ground floor so there was no view but it was new and big. The only problem was a intermittent mechanical noise in the wall of the bed room that kept us awake. We complained about it but was not fixed during... More

This was a first experience. The rooms are lovely and very quiet. The staff was very helpful and parking was easy, even though the hotel is centrally located, as there is a hotel owned parking lot. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. A real bonus is the library which supplies plenty of reading material and free port! It... More

We loved this hotel in Napier. It is right on the sea front with great views across the water. The rooms are very well appointed and I reckon if its good enough for the New Zealand cricket team its good enough for us.

The Crown just makes staying in Napier easy and comfortable. Very pleasant hotel facilities - sparklingly clean and well maintained. The staff are all friendly and more than happy to help - we like a firm bed and this was quickly sorted with no fuss at all. Having tried most hotels in Napier, we are now happy to use the... More

Napier is sleepy, but Ahuriri is a lovely spot nearby with some stellar pubs and beautiful views. The crown hotel is beautiful, modern and comfortable while retaining a real family feel. Every room looks over the water with its own balcony.

Great room over looking ocean. Was comparably priced to other hotels. Spacious. Had a kitchen that we didn't need but was very modern. Was very close to the wineries in Hawke's Bay. There were numerous stores nearby within walking distance.

Rooms well appointed, comfortable beds and quiet rooms. Staff at reception were very efficient and quickly organised a second night when there was a change in my schedule. Sales meeting was well catered for at morning / afternoon tea and lunch. Would highly recommend and use again when needed.

This is a nice place with small kitchenette just outside of Napier in Ahuiri. It is a 40 minute walk into the center of Napier. But it has a few restaurants close by which are good so you don't have to drive to enjoy a good meal. It's more of an upscale motor inn vs hotel. But the associated restaurant... More

We had no expectations on our trip to Napier and randomly got a great deal on a local hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - check in was easy, parking simple, the rooms were spacious, views spectacular and closeness to restaurants, coffee shops, and wine country was amazing. If you are looking for a quality hotel in a very cool... More

Dear Aaron Napier is a cool town and Ahuriri where the hotel is located is the new hip area because of its waterfront location and many restaurants and boutique shops. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay and got out to explore Hawkes Bay. We may see you back in NZL at some stage in the future. Kind Regards Michele... More
