Enjoyed our 2 night stay, loved all the history and the furniture/ relics around the place. So convenient - had breakfast in the emporium and watched the rugby at the Rose. Lovely staff, the breakfast buffet was a bit hit n miss but they did fill it up when asked. Nice big tastefully done rooms, look forward to the rest... More

We had an excellent night after finding the hotel by accident. It looked inviting and the staff were very welcoming and attentive. The room was lovely and one of the best beds of our trip. Meals were generous and great quality. A great experience.

Great building and decor but noisy late at night and very early morning from restaurant downstairs. Can also hear people in adjacent rooms which could be a problem. Bit mean with toiletries. Eggs with included breakfast do not include toast - need to self-prepare so eggs go cold. But overall a lovely place.

I use the Hotel once per month so really is a home away from home. Its as private or social as you need it to be and for an inner city locale very peaceful. Well appointed rooms, generous size and fixtures are of a decent quality. Friendly staff and overall highly recommended, hence why I am happy staying here time... More

Recently we stayed in the Art Deco Suite for a lovely night. It was very comfortable, warm and quiet with an amazing view. The woman who checked us in was very friendly and I gather managed us an upgrade. I have since recommended the hotel to others.

My partner and I were here in early August for a mid winter getaway with some friends. Helped by some superb Hawkes Bay weather, we had a great time. The hotel is located very centrally right on Marine Parade within walking distance of most big attractions, but we still found it to be nice and quiet. The rooms are really... More

Hello Andrew. Well it certainly sounds like you had a wonderful getaway to Hawke's Bay. Thank you for your very helpful description of our premium Pacific View Suite which as you say can be configured as two bedroom and two bathroom if required. We look forward to welcoming you back on another occasion. More

We were upgraded to the Royal Suite (right over the bar), perhaps because the hotel was half-empty (wintertime) and the town was digging up the road outside. Despite finding the bar music too loud to eat comfortably there, we couldn't hear it at all in our room even though we were directly over it. Lovely room, nice staff, good food... More

Hello Brian We are glad that we were able to upgrade you to our Royal Suite which is located right on the corner of Marine Parade and Tennyson street and is of course the room where the Queen and Prince Philip stayed on their Coronation tour. The good news is that the storm water upgrade has at last been completed.... More

Loved the Decor and service.... Nicely renovated and beautiful ambiance from our room to the restaurant. We dined in the Emporium downstairs which we were glad we got to stay prior to it closing for refurb. As it has an amazing lamb dish not to be missed.

Wonderful hotel in a stylish town, very warm welcome from all staff we met. The room was very comfortable with all the modern touches you would expect mixed with some very appealing extras, like the matching China tea set. Set right on the promenade, ideally situated for all the Napier has to offer, excellent restaurants, wineries, shopping .... Superb breakfast,... More

You can get a lot nicer for a lot cheaper in Napier. It's fine for what it is, but having to park 3 blocks away from the hotel, then have to pay $11 to do so is somewhat odd. We paid $160, and although got a free upgrade, it still was not worth that in our opinion. There is no... More

Hello James Your comments regarding our hotel tend to suggest that you are more suited to motel style accommodation. Our hotel has a choice of two bars and two restaurants, facilities that you do not get at a typical motel. Central city hotels in Auckland and Wellington typically charge $25 per night for parking which makes our charge of $11... More
