Fantastic. I would highly recommend. Very clean and modern. The bathroom and shower were luxurious. Great view. Perfect location for an evening out. Great selection of food and drinks stocked. I'll definitely be returning soon.

Very friendly staff, great with late check-in and allowed extra time for check-out. The 2 bedroom accommodation was spacious with a large balcony. Central to Napier and walking distance to all the restuarants and pubs that you would want to go to. It's a walk across to the beach as well.

Check in was a breeze and hotel was lovely and clean. I had the premium two bedroom apartment and the view from the balcony was very good. There is a convenience store just around the corner and city centre was just a five minute drive away.

The location was great, just across the road from the beach and positioned above a great cafe. The port had some interesting stores all in walking distance. The room was well presented and with the sea views and evening sunshine made it an enjoyable stay. Well worth the stay.

We frequently travel to Napier, though this was our first stay in Ahuriri. The location was perfect in every way, close to local shops, wharf, numerous cafes and restaurants, coastal walkways and parks. Our two bedroomed, two bathroom apartment overlooked the harbour entrance, with a large balcony to relax and soak in the stunning views. Nice quiet location at night...

We had a premium suite overlooking the beach, so the view was fantastic. The presentation and cleanliness of the suite was to a very high standard, and the staff were welcoming and friendly. A bonus was having the use of a kitchenette in our suite with a small fridge, so we were able to self-cater our breakfasts and lunches. The...

This ticked all the boxes for me. Great sized balcony with a lovely view, and stunning sunrise view. For a Twin share we had plenty of room, and the separate bathroom & toilet made a difference for us too. Everything felt lovely, soft and clean - even the robes which were provided.

“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. ”
