We stayed there in Jan 2015 for our honeymoon travelling around New Zealand. We spent 2 nights and were really impressed with the staff and quality of accommodation. It is a lovely relaxed location and a great base for wine tasting. Would recommend Emporium for food.

This is a great place to start exploring Napier. As others have said there are trucks that pass by. It would have been nice to leave the window open at night but it can't be done. We enjoyed our dinner at the restaurant . The breakfast was only ok. My eggs "poached hard" we total liquid. We found a wine...

Nice hotel located right on the waterfront with all rooms having lovely views across the bay. The higher the room the better the view. The rooms were spacious and had all the amenities expected of this type of hotel. The dining room is small for the size of the hotel and made breakfast a bit overcrowded. For a short stay...

In our trip we planned our hotels to be within a $130-150 price range and this was at the upper end when we booked but we're glad we did. Spent two nights here and it was midway through our driving tour. This had been the most comfortable bed I've slept in thus far. Our room had bay views (by try...

The room was well appointed & clean. The only downside was the street noise (there are a lot of trucks travelling in front of the hotel to & from the Port) - we were on the 3rd floor & kept the window closed, but it was still noticeable. This hotel is in a great location - walking distance to beach,...

We canceled our original booking down near the Aquarium and glad we did as this is much closer to centre, historic Art Deco buildings, guided walks and cafes. Our room overlooked the beach and sea. Scenic is a chain offering consistent standards of room, cleanliness and service. The buffet breakfast was fine and the evening meal adequate. The staff were...

We stay here often when we go to Napier and it's always a pleasure. Great rooms, great service and an excellent location. We took our 4 month old baby up there with us this time and it was no problem organising a portacot with them for her to sleep in. All made up nicely. I left my shoes there by...

Previous visits to Napier were blighted by the absence of a decent hotel. Not any longer. the Scenic is fairly new, overlooks the sea, with every one of 114 rooms having a sea view. Very well placed for town centre. Well equipped room size approx. 4m x 9m, and very helpful staff.

Great check-in with really helpful staff. Terrific room on 5th floor with the best view ever. Would have preferred king bed to 2 queens and in-room safe would be useful. Good guest laundry facilities and free car park. Very close to town so no need to use car at all. Great base for wine tours. Free use of good gym...
