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

We had a lovely experience all round. We had a beautiful apartment with a long balcony overlooking the sea. The staff were wonderful and nothing was any trouble. We had a truly amazing dinner at Milk and Honey, definitely recommended.

the attention to detail is very impressive - the whole complex was clean tidy and very well presented. our one bed apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean. The bathroom was amazing - brilliant bench space by the basin - a real plus to my mind and the size of the bathroom was a real surprise. The shower deserves a special mention,... More

The Crown is an excellent hotel with great service. It is in a prime location on the waterfront with a selection of great eateries close. It's really cool to update the old heritage part and build modern wing with a room to suit everyone's taste. It was a be ry relaxing and enjoyable stay.

I stayed 11 nights so my room quickly felt like my home away from home. The decor is lovely and the room was comfortable, warm and accommodating. I paid extra for cooking facilities which turned out being a microwave and two hotplates - less than what I had expected for my extended stay. The biggest disappointment was the Wifi. You... More
