We were pleasantly surprised by our room at the Beach Front in Napier. Comfortable king-sized bed, very tasteful and modern decor, a third-floor balcony with ocean view (and a view of children's playground which is between the ocean and the hotel). The kitchen was small but had everything we needed for two, including an electric frying pan and toaster. The...

The receptionist on check in was lovely and very helpful. Sadly it deteriorated after this. The internet was the worst we experienced in the whole of our NZ stay. Location just ok but nearby busy roads and unappealing /scruffy area to rear of apartments. Napier was not one of our favourite stays and we should have stayed less time here....

We are sorry your stay was not as you expected. Most guests are very happy with the wifi and have no problems. There are sometimes when no matter how much we try we cannot help the guest to logon. We are sorry that you did not enjoy Napier as a place to visit.

We only booked one night as we were touring by car around the north island but this hotel was surprisingly luxurious, and the town so interesting, we wished we could have stayed longer. We had an upstairs room with no water view but it was spacious, clean, airy and quiet! One bedroom apartment, with living room, couch, easy chair, desk...

We booked the executive suite 5months in advance. Got the top floor with the beach view. The room was lovely but quite small. Was a very hot day and was only provided an oscillating fan and we weren't given any bath robes. No instruction for the old heating system. Everything else was good. But we expected a bit more pizazz...

First visit to this motel which was clean & comfortable? Sufficient utensils for two. Enjoyed our own private spa! Great location for sunrise. Although a busy road on the front it is quiet at night. Would return again. Can recommend.

Fantastic 3 night stay with our friends in 2 Ocean View Rooms. The room was spotlessly clean and serviced daily. The view of the ocean incredible, and an easy 5 minute walk into town. Definitely recommend a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor, however there are no lifts? Check in fantastic, and very helpful and friendly. Free Wi-Fi.

We took a walk-up studio room in a separate building at the rear of the complex. It was roomy, air-conditioned, clean and very well appointed, with a westerly aspect. Perfect for our needs, with good access via a short walk to the Art Deco town centre. An on-site guest laundry, parking and good Wi-Fi are a bonus.

We spent 2 nights at this motel (ocean view room) and my family had a great time. The location was perfect, the views takes your breath away.
