We didn't have a booking in Napier but reviews of this property were good so we decided to try it. From the moment we walked in the receptionist,Natalia, was very friendly and welcoming. She showed us 2 rooms and we chose the studio with balcony because it was spacious, had a Kingsize bed, leather couch and outlook over the park....

This hotel was central to everything in Napier and great value for money. With a lovely cooked breakfast included in the rate. Staff were extremely helpful and ensured every request was met with a smile in a very timely manner.

Excellent location excellent service, the reception lady went above and beyond for us and the location was easy for us being so close to the restaurants and the beach etc. We were two families with young children and the unit suited us perfectly

Location excellent and very clean accommodation. We asked for and were given a quiet room. Free parking meant we could leave the car and stroll around the shops and restaurants and go to the seaside parks. Loved the still vibrant art deco atmosphere and antique shops. The hotel has been refurbished and management is excellent.

My husband and I stayed here for almost two weeks recently when we were buying a house in the area. So it is safe to say we put it to the test. The staff here are great, everyone went above and beyond to help make sure we had everything we needed. Fast, dependable internet was available the ENTIRE time---that is...

The dowdy exterior conceals a modern newly renovated interior and the adjoining Portofino restaurant offers great Italian food. Parking on site is limited to about 8 cars but there is ample parking opposite. Hotel is about 800m from storefront.
