I have stayed before but never thought to write a review until now prompted by a few days here last month in a climate only Napier can produce when it is wet and cloudy elsewhere. Apart from a beautiful setting this hotel has all you would want from vistas to service; from accessibility to comfort and staff who take an interest in your wellbeing.
A top floor room and on one night being a spectator of those arriving for a school ball at the conference centre across the road. The transport ranged from a double decker bus to a stretched limousine and of course the SUV all disgorging their dressed up party goers. In the mornings there were runners, cyclists and swimmers in the open air pool also across the road. An ever changing mosaic of people and their activities set against an ocean back drop.
But I digress as what this review is about is the hotel where the car can be parked virtually outside the entrance. Reception was staffed who were prompt and well organised with a friendly greeting. Always a good start when you are staying a few nights as it creates confidence in what lies ahead. Sometimes such confidence can be misplaced but not here as on opening the room door there was space, comfort and warmth and a lovely large bed. I cannot recall the cost but I easily bring back the experience which is not always the case.
There are some wonderful restaurants in Napier and all who visit and wish to enjoy a chef who is well versed in his craft should book into Pacifica. I arrived at this point as one night I also eat at the hotel and whilst the dinning room is large and lacks ambiance I was surprised to find the food was good, service prompt and the waiting staff all that one might expect.
If planning to enjoy Napier and its hinterland with wonderful wineries then as far as I am concerned this hotel makes the sojourn complete. Enjoy the comfort and pamper yourself.
