Spent the weekend here for a 40th birthday with family. The rooms were clean and spacious, although we did have a one-bedroom room (the bathroom was huge with a great spa bath). Location was fabulous and Milk and Honey restaurant was divine! The free newspaper in the morning is a lovely touch. Also went to the Globe Theatre for a... More

Rooom was lovely - we stayed in a premium studio. Staff were approachable and helpful. Only comment we would make is that the bed (while lovely and warm) are very firm and could be better with some sort of topper.

My husband and I spent one night in the Heritage Suite. We loved the gas fire. The hotel room was very comfortable and we felt it was good value for money. We would love to stay again. The Heritage Suite we stayed in didn't have a room of the sea (I'm not sure if any of them do), so if... More

My husband and I stayed overnight at the Hotel in one of the Heritage suites. We found the suite to be clean and well furnished with a lovely décor to suit the era. It felt like being at home rather than a hotel room and the gas fire was a nice touch that we used. We also made use of... More

Went to Napier and stayed at the lovely Crown Hotel. Our room was exactly as we expected and the view over the harbor was amazing. Great location as there are many restaurants to choose from for dinner. We walked across the road to Boardwalk restaurant for dinner which was amazing. So lovely not to have to get in the car...

So I actually stayed in this hotel in May 2013, but the dates wouldn't let me go that far. (I'm a bit behind) This hotel is fabulous. Only about a 10 minute drive from the airport, it's in such a great location that is right across from the water. There is a restaurant underneath called Milk & Honey that I... More

We had a great room on the top (3rd floor) with a large balcony. It has a well appointed kitchen including a mini dishwasher, a modern and clean design, with very comfortable beds. Plenty of nice touches, such as putting soft toys in the cot and providing a bath tub for the baby. Parking was also very convenient. The hotel... More

The hotel is in a very good location right on the waterfront at Ahuriri. We had a very nice comfortable one bedroom Studio premium suite with full sea views. Really good bathroom with a bath.

Such a great location which many years ago was basically an area for the local fishermen, warehouses for the wool industry and oil industry storage. Today the area has opened up to development with many bars and restaurants in close proximity to the Crown. The Crown provides excellent accommodation and the location provides a great vista of the Bay..
