I recently had occasion to go to Napier for a weekend. When browsing possible places to stay, I chanced upon 'Navigate' in Ahuriri, a seaside suburb in Napier.
Navigate is a three story motel that has been in existence for only one year. I found the room to be of a good size with 2 double beds, plenty of space and a view of the sea and shoreline. The furnishings were modern, the layout and design likewise. One of the amenities that I really appreciated, was the absolute quiet in the room. with the entrance door closed and the sliding door to the deck also closed, I could hear nothing of the (admittedly) small amount of traffic noise or any noise from adjacent units.
The kitchen facilities were good, with a small but adequate fridge and (best of all!) good quality ground coffee and a coffee plunger.
There was a very good, under-cover garage that was located in the basement. This would be a boon in wet weather.
Finally, the staff in attendance were pleasant and helpful.
