Really enjoyed the stay. Good sized room with oceanview. Everything was great right down to lovely toiletries and a decent amount of milk in the room. Had a great quality meal at the milk and honey restaurant.

A couple of years ago we really enjoyed a night in a Premium Studio (spa bath, wider views etc), this time we took the standard Studio. At ground level the sea view was more restricted, but still very welcome, as was the morning sun on the sheltered patio. Very attractive unit with sufficient kitchen to do a light breakfast. The...

Dear Bobnz The Sunday night specials are great value at the moment and nice to see that you tried out the studio rooms. Ahuriri is lovely to walk around as I see you did during your stay along the waterfront and to the many restaurants and cafes. Thank you for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor....

We booked the Winter Warmer deal as part of a weekend getaway. Everything from the check-in to the presentation of the room was flawless. The room was large, warm and comfortable with a wonderful view of the ocean. Of all the hotels we have stayed in, it was probably the most well laid out room we have stayed in and... More

Lovely rooms and great view. Close to shops and restaurants. We were very happy with our stay here. We also received a discount for the next stay which we will most definately use. Just missing a more comfortable lounge suit to relax on.

There's lots to like about the Crown Hotel. We stayed in one of the newer 'premium' suites, overlooking the port area. The furnishing are stylish and good quality. The room was a very good size, more like a small furnished apartment than a hotel room. And there were great blackout curtains - which are needed because there is quite a... More

Dear Rocky Thank you for your feedback and sorry to hear that we did not deliver the 'air of excellence' you were expecting as we always strive to exceed guests expectations during their stay with us.

Stayed two nights here and found it one of the best appointed boutique hotels I've stayed in. Pleasant & cooperative staff and a great waterfront location in Ahuriri village. Excellent restaurant (Milk & Honey) attached. Very relaxing. Not cheap but definitely worth it. My only quibble was free wifi was only available for one hour a day.
