This hotel is well situated walkable to town and to the shops and restaurants and if you get a room on a high level you can get great sea views, clean room and bathroom and evening room service food really good. The only downside to the room I had was the constant lift noise, certain rooms are directly opposite the... More

It's so nice turning up at a hotel and realising that ALL the rooms have a view. You literally can't have a bad view at this hotel. It looks straight out over the ocean, and as Napier is on the East Coast, you see the sun rise every morning. The rooms are large, clean and modern. It was a lovely... More

This is a very nice hotel located just off the water near the Art Deco section of Napier. The building is shaped in an arc which provides all of the rooms with an opportunity to see the ocean out of large room windows. The hotel provides very nice shampoo and conditioner which they also sell in larger bottles at the... More

I stayed here two nights for the Hawkes Bay marathon. The rooms are good, basic, clean, functional. I had some issues with corridor noise being a bit disruptive. There's no cable TV so the viewing options were very limited. I had planned on spending a couple of hours being a slob in bed after the run but got totally bored... More

A present for Christmas, a night away for 2 couples. We looked forward to this as I had recommended Te Pania to many a group/conference group in my job. The hotel was gorgeous, clean, our room was gorgeous, lovely view and superb pillows. The service was a little disappointing. First being told our room wasn't ready at 2pm (that's fine)... More
