Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our room was very large (bedroom and separate living room), and comfortable. Check in and out was painless, and front office staff very helpful. Only negative is it's is fair way out of town center (30-45 minutes by foot, maybe 10-15 by car), but there are some good restaurants in the area, and check out the boutique cinema next door

Great hotel, close to cafes and across the road from beach, very clean. We had 2 bedroom apartment overlooking Main Street and beach, awesome views. Lots of little shops and cafes in the area. Only a short 5 min drive to city centre.

Dear u6924BNdavids Sorry about the weather during your recent stay in Hawkes Bay! Apologies regarding the bar staff not being helpful as this is not our level of service that our staff are renowned for. Not sure if it was our little house bar or Milk and Honey Bar as Milk and Honey is owned and managed separately to our...

Great hotel just outside of Napier in Ahuriri which basically is Napier but just round the corner! The Crown Hotel is situated right on the front and is very modern with everything you need in the room. The hotel is spotlessly clean and all of the staff where extremely friendly. If we come back to New Zealand we would have...

We stayed for one night in an oceanview room and wow was it worth it. The sunrise was one of the best I've ever seen. We stood outside on the balcony for ages in the early hours just watching it. The rooms were clean and staff were friendly. A brilliant base for those wanting to see the quaint art deco...

We were able to check in at midday. Our room was spacious and well equipped with fridge, microwave, dishwasher etc. The balcony faced the sea and the location was perfect. Car parking on site was conveniently placed.

Just cannot find anything negative to say about the Crown. The title says it all. We were able to check in on arrival at 12.30. Our apartment was large, fully equipped with a sea view balcony. There was adequate on site parking and the staff were helpful in every way possible.

If you consider staying at this hotel, ask for the newer bedrooms overlooking the sea. Lovely views with spacious balconies. It's a shame that you are so exposed to your neighbours though - a small screen would benefit The bedroom is probably one of the best design I have seen. Spacious room, very comfortably furnished with many thoughtful aspects Compact,...
