Had a lovely one-bedroom "apartment" with lots of room and good light. Helpful (if somewhat uninformed) staff who were willing to find the answers to questions but did not seem to know some basic information about the area (such as the Cape Kidnappers excursion).

The Crown Hotel is perfectly located next to bars and restaurants of the Ahuriri part of town. It is easy to walk along the coast path into Napier to enjoy the Art Deco buildings and for us the excellent museum. The hotel is welcoming, the rooms are clean and fully equipped with a kitchenette and spacious bathroom. We were lucky...

On our NZ retirement tour we have been staying in many hotels and motels and this was one of the nicest. The room was more of an apartment , comfortable and modern with a big balcony to breakfast on. The laundry room was free and everything was spotless. All the staff including cleaners were smiling and warm. The location is...

We had a lovely room across from the beach, with good facilities and a balcony. There is a restaurant/ bar downstairs and plenty others nearby. This area is a bit away from the centre of Napier, but has a character of its own.

The Loft category is where you should stay if ever you visit Napier. The Crown has impeccable service, and is a cosy property very close to the beach. It is accessible to many shops in the area, and a few steps away from the property will bring you to one of the most magnificent sunsets you might have ever seen.

Dear nazn587 The Loft apartment is particularly great when you are wanting that bit of extra space with 2 bedrooms. Glad to hear that you got to experience our wonderful sunsets! We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back in the future. Kind Regards Michele Cole

The room was very clean, well presented and well appointed. It had a fantastic sea view. The staff were all very friendly and exceptionally helpful. Great breakfast and evening meals at the Milk and Honey restaurant on site. Overall very well priced for hotel and restaurant services and in reasonable proximity of the main city centre and Marine Parade.

“More powerful hairdryer”

“Draw the curtains and switch on the air on as soon as you arrive in the afternoon. We had full sun as we faced west. Brilliant for a balcony breakfast.”

“Ocena facing rooms are great but if you intend to travel around, its not essential. You also can't see the ocean at night? Hoever, the cafe "milk and honey" is worthy of a visit. ”
