We booked Navigate through a special promotion, the night before we were due to stay our daughter fell ill. I gave Navigate a call to see if we could re-arrange our booking & they were brilliant, really accommodating & happy for us to change our plans. Three weeks later than planned we arrived in Ahuriri & the brand new Navigate accommodation. We had a really spacious room with a sea view, the bed was huge & very comfortable, the room also had a small kitchenette which was perfect for home comforts. Everything was immaculate.
Hayley on reception was happy to recommend cafes & restaurants, all of which were really good & we loved popping next door to the Globette, a tiny boutique cinema. Everything for a lovely weekend away was right on the doorstep. We were really happy staying there & would highly recommend Navigate.

Room Tip: Just speak to reception we found them to be more than helpful.

My wife and I stayed at Navigate Napier for 4 days in May 2013 and were delighted with the overall experience. Nice place, nicely close to the harbour (with views from our balcony) and nice staff. Fully recommended.

We (2 adults & 2 children) decided to stay at Navigate Seaside Accommodation in Napier after reading the positive reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. Overall, our expectations were exceeded. The rooms were very spacious, the staff were friendly and we loved the little details (like the fresh milk and bowl of apples). While not in the city centre there were enough choices for dinner without having to drive and the playground across the road looked very inviting (it rained during our stay so we didn't get to road test it however!). Overall, highly recommended for families with young children.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Navigate Hotel. The staff were very helpful, the view was incredible and the hotel was very nice (comfortable bed, balcony overlooking the beach and a decent shower). I also loved having cafes/restaurants/bars just down stairs.

Navigate Seaside Accommodation are top value and top quality. All ammenities are top of the range.
Daily servicing was thorough and well done. All linens , bed and bathroom were top quality. The kingsize bed was very comfortable. The Balcony was private and adequate, and the sea view from the lounge was refreshing and peaceful. The beach is across the road and a childrens playground on the foreshore is well used by happy children. A long walkway follows the foreshore for a great distance.
The Navigate is in the middle of the up and coming Ahuriri area between the swimming beach Westshore and the wharf. Modernisation of Ahuriri is taking place and the quaint and uniqueness of Ahuriri village is being maintained. Cafes, gallerys, fashion and book shops, antique and op shop and many more. A new art deco cinema is within the vacinity and shows up to date movies and well worth a visit. Boats in the marina nearby add a charm worth enjoying. A large underground park for vehicles is accessable by lift or on foot.

Room Tip: There are apartments on the front of the property facing north and the beach and sea, which would be...

It was a very nice stay. Our 3 year old girl loved the closeness to the beach and playground.The location is ideal for a family with smaller children. Also very good location for restaurants/cafes (3 Doors Up highly recommended)
P.S. A refill of milk for Coffee on the second day would have been fantastic
