We flew in from Christchurch and expected a small motel. The hotel is across the road from the water, has a great littel cafe at the front and is very pleasant. The staff were courteous and helpful so worthy of another visit!

A haven for travellers, with a beautiful seafront setting. Extremely comfortable room with huge bathroom with spa bath, separate shower and separate toilet. Facilities for those who want to cook and a most useful guest laundry which is free! Staff friendly and helpful.

Wow. We visited in November and absolutely loved it. Staff was great, room was spacious, and location was fabulous. We toured the wineries in the area and this hotel was perfectly located. Cute bistros in area for breakfast. Within walking distance to the beach. Wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

This place wasn't what I was expecting, but I really liked it and would stay there again. The parking is tight, but the rooms, especially the bathroom's are a great size! Noise wasn't really an issue, but if you get a craving for nibbles, the smell of the near-by BBQ Chicken restaurant may have you drooling.

I slept right through the earthquake because the bed was so comfortable, the atmosphere at service at this place was impeccable. 5/5! The front desk team was on point and provided a lot of assistance, everyone was super friendly and greeted you with joy all the time.

Just steps from the beach our room (313) was clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Stay away from the mini-bar($$) and enjoy the free coffee instead. Several good cafes within a short walk (Thirsty Whale, Gintrap). The only draw back is the $15 taxi fare into historic Napier for shopping and people watching.In house cafe (Milk and Honey)...

“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.”

“Ask for a room facing the sea if possible.”

“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. ”
