Party Central until 4.00am not great! All good for stag/hen party groups as bar next door. Reception not contactable during night. Good spot close to nice restaurants and cafes. And hummer ride ride awesome!

I've stayed here often and a little surprised it's rated so low. The experiences I had on my recent trip were all excellent. I stay here for work and would certainly stay for pleasure aswell. Great location, service and rooms with a view a bonus.

Have stayed here a few times, and is my preferred hotel in Napier. Rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable with a great balcony overlooking the small harbour. I do like that you can go to the bar and get a drink and something to eat after a long day at work without leaving the hotel. The rooms have spas,...

My husband and I chaperoned 10 teenage girls at a local high school ball. We travelled from Auckland and were pleasantly surprised with our accommodation. It could sleep 16 of us comfortably if needed. There was also lots of room to cook, more than enough toilets and showers. Staff were very accommodating and friendly. Handy to town. Will definitely stay...

A Great Hotel in a good position near the Port and handy to Napier City. The rooms are great some of the standard rooms are a little older but still very good. Only problem was the soap dispensers did not appear to work in our rooms. Small issue for a well priced hotel. There was a little bit of noise...

Not the cleanest of hotels and definitely no luxury. It was somewhere to sleep and that is all. I wouldn't recommend this hotel at all. There was a dirty towel in the room and something nasty in one of the drawers. It didn't smell too pleasant either. Was in a good location and had adequate parking.
