We presented just after 12 noon, check in is clearly listed as 2pm. Rather than a "Hi, welcome to Napier" (we had only travelled over 5000km to get here), the first interaction was a very firm "sorry we can't accomodate you till 2 o'clock". It came across as almost gleeful, certainly we took it that way. Customer service 101 folks,...

We were harassed by the owner about letting workers into our room at 9am after we finished driving an entire day. When I stood up to her, she screamed and yelled at us. This place is a pitiful hotel. Do not ignore the negative reviews, they are the most accurate representation of this place.

It was a shame the Building WOF agent turned up to do the annual check when this man was staying. At 10am after guest checkouts were completed, those who were staying on received a courtesy call to say the smoke detectors in each room were to be checked later in the morning and this would take no more than 5...

This was the perfect little hotel for us. Extremely clean, well kept and well situated. The owners are very nice and helpful. The property is extremely well kept and quiet. Three stories of rooms all with balconies overlooking the ocean. This definitely books quickly, especially in high season, so book early and enjoy!

We will definitely be back to stay here again. Room was perfect and just what we wanted. TV and spa on the room, walking distance to cafes and restaurants and some shopping. Very friendly staff. Well looked after.

Perfect for our weekend away. Golf and dining out on Saturday. Our room was awesome, tv in lounge and bedroom perfect. Large spa in room was amazing. Huge bed was very comfy. Very tidy and clean. Good value for $$. Happy couple.

Room was spacious and well equipped. Reception staff were helpful and professional. A good cost effective place to stay in Napier. Located close to beach, cycle ways, main city centre and local cafes.

We stayed in an upstairs room at the back of the hotel. It offered a large living area with lounge and TV, a separate bedroom with extra TV (albeit an old CRT TV which reminded me of high school), a large spa bath with separate bathroom and a small kitchenette. The room was very large compared to most hotel rooms...

“If you have a lot of luggage or mobility issues have a ground floor room as there is no lift and only spiral staircases”

“Ask for an upper room to reduce street noise, and an ocean side room to avoid afternoon sun.”

“We liked the rooms facing the Bay. If you do not have too much luggage, and if it not too heavy, take a room on the top floors.”
