“Great location, very good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

This is a pretty good modern hotel.

All of the rooms face the sea which is superb given the outlook!

The beds are on the soft side, but comfortable and the pillow menu means that there is something for everyone.

The rooms are well laid out and plenty spacious enough.

You get to use the gym at Ocean Spa over the road which is a good deal. Swimming there is cheap too.

The hotel offers wifi - 1 hour free, which in this day an age is a complete con...it should be free. If you are a Telecom customer, there happens to be a free wifi hotspot out the front which you can connect to for your free 1Gb per day!

All in all a good choice close to everything Napier central has to offer and I would come back.

Stayed January 2014

Lovely new hotel with excellent parking and great seafront position. Good value and staff quite friendly although not like the hotel in Auckland. Food was ok and reasonable value. Rooms were great and immaculate and quiet as well with stunning views out to sea. One I would return to as again everywhere was easy to walk to.

This was a nice hotel - the location is great, the rooms were fine, the staff friendly but I would not recommend this hotel nor would I stay there again because they do not offer a free internet service. They offer a miserly 1 hour free for one device every 24 hours. Free Wi-Fi is a basic service and this hotel needs to change their policy to keep up with the market. If I had known beforehand that free Wi-Fi was not provided I would not have booked this hotel.
Also they offer a very basic selection of 10 TV channels - given the prices the hotel charges I would expect to be provided with Sky TV channels.

Fabulous staff, excellent recommendations from them on dining & sights but this property needs a freshen up to get rid of musty smells & restore a pleasant feeling. Great views.
Within walking distance of so much loveliness!

Surprised by the arrangements from hotel, great views and location, everything was comfortable and we did enjoy an unique experience.The staff were helpful, gave much advises on restaurants and wineries, and the most exciting moments was to see the sunrise early next morning -- really so romantic. Highly recommend!!

Room Tip: Suggest rooms on 6th floor.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Great location right in the centre, overlooking the sea. Rooms very comfortable and access to a gym across the road. They also had laundry facilities, which was much appreciated at that stage of our journey. Good breakfast which we got for free for staying two nights.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The rooms were clean and had magnificent views over the sea. They also had good air conditioning. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is environmentally and ethically sound. The tea, coffee and hot chocolate are fair trade and the toiletries are Eco-friendly. Also: there was fresh milk in the fridge - a big plus for tea drinkers!
