The room was very spacious - bigger than what I expected and was clean. The decor was rather worn, & reminded me of a Miami Beach hotel in the mid-80's. There were a few pretty good restaurants & bars within a 10 minute walk. We did not eat at the restaurant connected to the hotel.
We were very excited to be in Napier but whenever we asked the front desk for some recommendations in the area - no one had any "good ideas" and just pointed us to the various pamplets available. It almost seemed as though we were an inconvenience. This was actually true at many of the locations we visited in Napier (not just this hotel). Of all the cities visited in NZ, I'd recommend either skipping Napier or just keeping it to 1 day.
