This is one of the smartest and slickest hotels we have stayed in on our trip to NZ. The room was spotless, modern and beautifully appointed. Our balcony had a lovely sea view. Breakfast was not included but their restaurant is on the ground floor with great breakfast and coffee options. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and the guest... More

Arrived at The Crown Hotel and was pleasantly surprised, we were booked in early by the duty manager who was friendly and informative of the local area, we were then directed to our room after parking the car literally under the building of the hotel in a car port with easy access to the lift. We opened the door to... More

Fabulous location and lovely rooms. The views are terrific. We loved the size of the room, the kitchenette feature and the lovely modern bathroom. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended! There is an Art Deco facade to the office area of this hotel, but the building with the hotel rooms is new and modern.

Great spot close to safe swimming and superb places to eat.Room service, or just a breakfast coffee to your door, fantastic. Book in for a movie at The GlobeTheaterette too. A lovely community feel around the place, but still allowed for privacy.

We were given a lovely room, however there were a few things we weren't too happy about. We stayed in a one bedroom unit and the living area didn't have a couch, just two separate occasional chairs which weren't comfortable to sit or lounge on. After a long day of trekking this is what we would have liked to do.... More

Dear Jayakesha Sorry to hear that you were not happy with your 2 lounge chairs. The larger lounges in guest rooms do have couches, however due to the size and overall comfort of the lounge layout, the majority of rooms have 2 x lounge chairs which is fairly standard in most hotels around NZ. Our house bar did have a... More

Reception staff on arrival were very welcoming and helpful. We decided to spend a little extra and take a corner premium room with a spa bath. Well worth it - really spacious room and amazing views towards Westshore/Bay View and also out across the sea towards Mahia. It was a really lovely stay and we would recommend the Crown Hotel...

Dear gizzyb0rn Thank you for the lovely feedback particularly surrounding our staff as they do strive to go the extra mile. Apologies regarding the smoking guests next door. We have contemplated taking the ashtrays away to refrain guests from smoking but then guests still smoke and drop their butts over the balcony. We have asked guests to be considerate of... More

The Crown was lovely to stay in. Had room 313 which has a sea view. Lovely balcony with table and chairs. Toiletries, towels, robes and glasswear were of excellent quality. Much appreciated. Nice that there were 2 lounge chairs as well as a chair at the desk. Plenty of room and the sink in the kitchen area was very handy.... More
