On arrival we were surprised to have had an upgrade so that we were alongside our friends from Tauranga. Comfortable bed, nice relaxing spa bath, and magnificent scenery. An 11am checkout without asking was an advantage.

This was a great hotel located right across the street from the ocean. Check in process was smooth and the young lady that checked us in was so nice and helpful. Great first impression. We also ate at the restaurant which was very nice. Would definitely stay here again.

We have no reservations in recommending the Crown. We stayed in room 207, Spacious, separate bedroom (with a 2nd TV) and a huge bathroom with a full sized spa bath. Parking was easy and plenty of adjacent cafe's etc.

The rooms are clean and modern we had a great ocean view room which also had a spa bath which my fiancée really loved! It is about 30 mins walk into the main town or a 5 min taxi ride. There are plenty of restaurants and bars by the hotel which is good as you don't have to travel into... More

We arrived late and left early, next time will be more organised to have time to relax and enjoy it! Bathroom was luxurious with snuggly bathrobes, bed was so comfortable. Sea view would have been good, definitely next time!

Even though its expensive this is a lovely place to stay. Very friendly reception, only too pleased to help. Lovely rooms. Very clean and tidy and spacious. Restaurant downstairs is an added bonus and they the hotel offers a very good deal for dinner and breakfast there together with your accommodaton. Lovely view to wake up to.

Lovely hotel wih a sea view from our balcony. Breakfast on the balcony was a treat. Shame we were only staying one night. Kitchenette was extremely useful. Very helpful staff. Good location for shops and restaurants.

Service was excellent from all staff that I dealt with by phone and checking in and checking out. Location and standard of accommodation was very suited to our visit. When visiting Napier again I would happily stay at The Crown Hotel Napier again. Great shopping in the area.
