We arrived in Napier around midday, after driving from Taupo. The first thing you notice is all the Art Deco buildings in town. We visited the i-site and got the general lay of the land, before heading off to check out some of the sites. Our first stop was a look out at the north end of the main beach...

The motel is situated on the sea front at Ahuriri just 45 mins walk from Napier centre. The rooms were spacious with balcony or terrace and very well appointed and spotlessly clean. Kitchen area had everything you would need. Would stay again as there are plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walk as well as a variety of small...

Such a great place to stay when travelling with my little boy. The room has full cooking facilities, and is on the ground floor so my little boy can get out & run around while we chill out on the outside furniture. Reception is sometimes a little curt, but they always try to accommodate any requests. Just a stones throw...

We spent several nights in this Motel as a group. There was off-street parking. Shops of all types handy. Great walking paths along the beachfront. The rooms were comfortable and clean with a variety of options. All upstairs rooms looked over the ocean. Also had an outdoor balcony.

Harbour View Lodge is in a good location. Several really good restaurants and pubs only a short walk away. Very handy to the Cities of Napier and Hastings with their quirky "art deco" architecture. Fascinating history.

Caring, friendly hosts, clean, modern facilities beachfront location with no road in between, breakfast on the patio looking out to sea, with safe swimming. Park your vehicle at your front door. Perfect!

Clean and comfortable. Bedroom lacks power point. The view is excellent. A few shops closed to the motel. The host is friendly. Carpark can get busy so maybe the owner can consider allocated carspace for each unit.

Harbour View has to have one of the best locations in the Napier region, with all rooms facing across Hawkes Bay, with nothing in the way - no road, no carpark, nothing. The road and carpark are effectively at the back of the motel. The view is one compensation for being a little bit away from the city centre: others...

My wife and I visited from Auckland during Art Deco weekend. Service was excellent, booked a year ahead and several communications received during that time to confirm. We have already reserved for next year. All rooms have a great sea view, upstairs moreso. We had a second room well worth it just to spread out our suitcases ... . The...

It seems that every room here looks out across the front lawns onto the beach (stony) and sea. Ours was an upstairs choice that was modern, clean, comfortable, with a small kitchen facility, television and free wifi. One entire wall provided fantastic views out over our balcony - pity it was very breezy while we were there so couldn't avail...
