Our stay in the 2 bedroom Heritage suite was great. Choosing it on spec that we should stay somewhere a little Art-Deco as we were touring Napier, the suite was located above reception in the original hotel. No lift, but the front desk helped us carry up luggage up the flight of stairs.
Not knowing what to expect as the photos on the website were sparse, we found the suite beautifully appointed with comfy beds and very modern ensuites in each bedroom. Ours had a spa bath, L'Occitane products and the suite boasted a balcony with a part view of the waterfront. It also overlooked a modern public courtyard with fireplace; fortunately, others enjoying that public space with their glasses of wine all dispersed by 9 pm. The lounge was relatively spacious, albeit with no kitchen, just tea making facilities and a fridge.
Brekkie was outsourced, but the restaurants in the modern part of their accommodations were well appointed, with good bar and coffee spaces.
The hotel comprises a large section of modern rooms and apartments overlooking the waterfront and the original section, which we stayed in. Not exactly convenient to the centre of town, this place is great if you're driving.
