4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW via mobile

Along the Marine Drive overlooking Hawkes Bay this is an ok place but not my style. The rooms are a good size with a big comfortable bed. There is a huge spa bath next to the bed. Many other reviewers liked having the spa bath and it seems to be very popular in New Zealand. If there has to be... More

Had two nights here. The good things - free parking, free wifi, looking over the ocean, large spa bath in bedroom. Other stuff - a touch tired, poky little kitchen, a bit of a walk into town, had to pay extra to upgrade room with view over ocean. Overall quite good for what we paid. With a plethora of accommodation... More

Excellent Location walking distance to everything. Friendly warm staff on arrival. Very nice and clean. Cute little balcony with sea views, Free wifi. We came as 2 couples and booked 2 rooms, but could definately recommend for families. Great value for your dollar and they havent skimped on quality or cleanliness.

Awesome accommodation. We booked through wotif and were upgraded to a bigger room. Awesome spa bath in the bathroom well worth using. Massive King sized bed in the living area plus couches to sit on. Room had a heat pump so it was perfect for winter. Also had a separate room with two single beds which we're not needed. Very... More

For value and quality look no further. From the moment arriving met with warm smiles and fantastic service. Room absolutely clean and well appointed and equipped. All staff were friendly and apparent very committed to providing a great service. Seemed to have an air of "family" orientation here which is amazing. Amazing views. All in all second to none.

On our arrival to the hotel the staff were very friendly and inviting. We received our room number and key, then headed up to our room. Upon entering we were welcomed by beautiful sunlight entering the room from the balcony window, as for cleanliness it was spotless! The biggest surprise came after putting our bags down and turning the corner... More

Travelling with my family around New Zealand an stopped here for on night. Shame it wasn't longer! The room was excellent. Clean, spacious with a comfortable bed and right on the waterfront so we could stroll along the boardwalk after dinner. Brilliant

This was our second visit to the Nautilus. It's very comfortable with all the mod cons. The spa baths in all the units are spacious. Close to the town centre and right across from the beach. Nice views and great hosts. We'll be staying here again.

Best regards to the housekeeping team. The spa bath is lovely for pampering yourself. The SkyTV is available in the room, although not in a HD quality. However, i got... More
