when ever in the Bay I'll always try to stay at The Crowne Ahuriri because of the location ,with its veiws of the ocean from every room. Warm and cosy in the winter and open and fresh in the summer. Big comforable beds and lots of pillows. Just be careful not to over indulge with the mini bar , so... More

The Crown Hotel Napier is definitely value for money - the rooms are modern and large. It is close to a number of good cafes (Milk & Honey is right next door and do a great breakfast), bars and restaurants. I would recommend it for families who want more than just a room (I liked how our room had a... More

The Crown was our accommodation for a weekend conference in Ahuriri, Napier. Our initial impression of the hotel's service was very favourable. In brief, we had booked our room twice because of a problem with the conference travel agent - and within an hour of the second booking, Michelle at the Crown's reservations desk was on the phone to me...

My wife and I stayed here again on a long weekend break in Napier, and the hotel didn't disappoint. The service is always excellent, and the rooms are well appointed and clean. We were in one of the two room suites, with a sitting room, and a separate bedroom. The en suite bathroom was *massive*, with heaps of space. There... More

I was a bit dismayed to discover that work had booked me into this hotel rather than one of the nice little boutique places in Napier CBD. But it was a great hotel for business.

This is the third time we have stayed at this Hotel. It's really well situated, rooms are spotless and have everything you need. Excellent staff that are friendly and helpful. Honestly couldn't fault apart from no wifi. Even then holidays are about enjoying outdoors and not being stuck indoors on wifi. Will be back for sure! 👍

It was furnished very lovely and laid out well with a separate lounge, and two bedrooms off each side of the lounge with their own large bathroom, and a terrace off the lounge. There are also heat pumps in the lounge and each bedroom so we were very warm. The... More
