Lower Hutt, New Zealand
Reviewed yesterday NEW

The dowdy exterior conceals a modern newly renovated interior and the adjoining Portofino restaurant offers great Italian food. Parking on site is limited to about 8 cars but there is ample parking opposite. Hotel is about 800m from storefront.

Napier is a lovely town, and the hotel provided us with a clean and spacious room on the edge of town for a 2 night stay. The restaurant is undergoing renovation and so was not open during outer visit but there are plenty of eating places to enjoy.

Stayed here as the Masonic was fully booked - and this is apparently the sister hotel. Good central location about 5 minutes from anything (beach, town etc). Rooms have been refurbished to a good standard though the bathrooms are nothing to write home about. Noise from the street was fine with windows closed and rooms have heatpump/aircon units (new) in...

Hotel is centrally located, well priced, comfortable and very clean. Staff very friendly. Outside on site parking right in the CBD. parking a bit tight when full but manageable. Décor very modern. Napier was very interesting and the Art Décor theme was quite well carried out.

We hadn't booked accommodation and simply walked in quoted the online rate we found and were in our room within minutes. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was perfect for our needs at the time.
