This is the second time we have stayed here for a long weekend and again it did not disappoint us; even with poor weather. The rooms were clean, the staff helpful, and the cafe (Milk and Honey) below served great breakfast and coffee. Already planning our next stay.

We had a great experience at the Crown Hotel, we chose the Studio Heritage Suite which is in the original part of the hotel and it was just stunning, very clean and luxurious and even had a little balcony that look out over the street which was a nice touch. The staff are super friendly and it is close to... More

We live in Havelock North which is not far from Napier but we decided for my birthday we would book a night at the Crown Hotel, walk down the road to a fabulous local restaurant and just enjoy the view from our hotel room. Although we only had the one night we felt like we had been on holiday. The... More

A huge spacious main room in the older part of the complex. Big arched windows and some Art Deco touches appropriate for Napier. Very clean and stylish it would be a great room to stay in and use to dress up in period clothes for Napier's Art Deco week. It felt like I should be lounging around in a smoking... More

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for two days in July and it was completely forgettable. The rooms were adequate and well maintained but totally lacked personality. The entire hotel lacked charisma and style as did the staff. The only upside was the restaurant, Milk and Honey which, in contrast the the hotel oozed personality, warmth and style, with... More

We had a wonderful 3 night stay over New Year. One of the best hotels we have stayed in and we would love to go back - if only we didn't live so far away. The service, food and rooms are excellent. We particularly enjoyed the New Year's Eve dinner in Milk & Honey, the hotel restaurant and the breakfasts... More

Of all the hotels I've stayed in, this has to be one of the best on an international scale. Staff went out of their way to answer any of my queries and the presentation of the room was second to none. Easy stroll to many of the delightful cafes and restaurants within arms reach. Would love to come back soon... More

This place is wonderful. We live in Napier and this place is one out of the box. The room were big with lots of space. The outlook of this place was priceless looking out across the Bay. I would go back and stay again. Milk and Honey below wow what a meal 10/10 for us on the whole weekend
