Shoreline Motel Napier

Certificate of Excellence
The Shoreline Motel is a serene place that feels miles in the sky. Well situated on Napier's promenade, the majestic view of the Pacific Ocean and the misty bluffs of Cape Kidnappers it is like none other in the world. The Shoreline Motel is a stunning beachfront motel with stunning panoramic ocean views located in sunny and vibrant Hawke's Bay. Only minutes’ walk from Napier town, with its cafe culture and boutique shops; and being adjacent to the Napier beach, and a 2 minute walk to The National Aquarium of New Zealand, the Shoreline Motel offers the holiday or business visitor the perfect getaway. The 38 elegantly designed rooms are stylish with ample space and amenities like Jacuzzis are well laid out. The Ocean Front rooms have breath taking view of the ocean from all balconies, where guests can sit and watch the ocean for hours. Accommodation options range from luxury sea-facing studios, self-contained city-facing studios to one bedroom and two bedroom apartments.
