I often met with my daughter and her two small children at Napier which is half way for both of us to travel to.
we always stay at te pania as it has large rooms , the most comfortable beds,great views of the ocean and so close to the city and all it has to offer for young children and adults. Hotel staff are very helpful, friendly and they make great cofe. We sometimes eat at the hotel and the staff are very supportive of young children the food is excellent.

Room Tip: In the middle , fourth floor up

Booked in for the one night "romance package". Well worth it. From the wine and gift pack on arrival to the breakfast delivered to our room and late check out, we couldn't have asked for anything else. The Hotel is in a great location and within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. A great 24hrs in Napier!

The only minor issue was a couple of miscommunications about the package we booked and what the final charge was, however this was easily and promptly sorted by staff at reception without a problem. Well done Scenic. We'll be back!

Only had 2 nights here but it was a very pleasant stay. Unfortunately breakfast wasn't included (my only negative) which I think it should have been for what we paid. We didn't eat here in the evening so can't comment on the food. The rooms however, were bright and spacious and spotlessly clean. The hotel staff were professional, helpful and friendly. The hotel is perfectly located and all the rooms all seem to have sea views which is nice. There is a small smoking area at the back with tables and chairs which is a nice touch for smokers. Ample parking too. I would definitely stay here again and maybe next time include breakfast.

We were only in Napier for one night and it was raining. This stopped us seeing more of the town. This hotel is first class. The room was perfect. We had breakfast included which was served in a modern area. The staff couldn't do enough for you. You get a sea view from the room which will look better on a sunny day.

We stayed one night at this waterfront hotel while touring NZ. When we booked months before I had requested a 6th floor room to be higher up from the traffic noise (as warned in various Trip Advisor reviews). For some reason this accommodation was not made and we were put on the fourth floor. Our friends had the corner room which was nice as it had corner windows, making it much lighter and airier than ours with nice views. Most rooms must have lovely ocean views. Unfortunately our view was blocked by a large tree, so basically it was like looking into a bush. The rooms were fairly clean although our carpet could have used some better vacuuming. The staff was courteous, friendly, and helpful. We enjoyed a nice dinner and breakfast in the hotel. Although it was summer the weather was not good. The large windows in the dinning room must be lovely in fine weather but they did contribute to the chilly temperature. As others have noted, the hotel is in a good location for shopping and the beach side walkway. There is traffic noise however.

Room Tip: I would request a corner room on the higher floors. I believe our friends had #401...nice because o...

Stayed for one night at the waterfront hotel, with great ocean views & large well equipped rooms. The hotel is a short walk from the Art Deco town centre of Napier, their are many interesting buildings and shops in the Art Deco style.
