Great spot. Very clean and tidy with stunning views from room. Very affordable - highly recommended! Situated in Ahuriri, there are a number of great shops, cafes and bars to wonder through and have a bite to eat and drink.

Dear Eugene_beneke Thanks for the high recommendation and glad that you got to experience what the area of Ahuriri has to offer. We are very lucky to have our hotel situated right on the waterfront and walking distance to everything. Kind Regards Michele Cole

What a wonderful view over the bay. The room was a good size and well appointed. Very comfortable indeed. It is not located in Napier itself, as we thought. Napier city itself is about 3 minutes away by car or a good walk. But if you have transport this is no problem. Would happily stay here again when in Napier.

It was our first visit to the Hawkes Bay Region and we spent 4 nights at the Crown Hotel. The hotel is well located with easy access to local shops, restaurants and the beach. We had an upper level studio apartment with a balcony facing the beach. It was great to wake up to an ocean view and watch the...

We loved our stay at The Crown Hotel Napier. The apartment was very clean. The kitchenette was so handy to have and the space was enormous given the quality and price. The bathroom was huge and has both a shower and a spa tub. There was a balcony which overlooked the neighborhood and was scenic just the same. We really...

Comfortable, modern hotel with fantastic views from the upper sea front rooms. Clean and well presented with good parking facilities and in a great central spot in town. Customer service at check and check out was fairly indifferent, could do with being improved. Otherwise a great stay, perfect getaway spot in Napier.

The hotel faces the sea, very relaxing and therapeutic. Interesting buildings and art-deco pieces. Pretty centralized. Good and nice eating places nearby. Free parking. The room is of decent size, however the bathroom is tight. Has kitchenette facilities.

Service was great, Rooms were very clean. We had a sea view room the second night which was considerably better in all respects compared to the same priced rooms around the corner with partial sea views.

Great stay at this lovely hotel. Nothing to fault about it. Staff are super helpful and lovely. Room service recommended the best meals. Room was comfy and nice to relax while continuing with work. I must mention the large shower box. It had enough room to dance around in. I wish I was here for pleasure rather than business, as...

Stayed in 7 hotels on our trip and this was the best! Really great staff and convenient location. Room was lovely, great decor and clean. Hired some bikes from reception to do the wine tour and would highly recommend this.
