Our family of four stayed here for two nights. We were very happy with everything. We were on the top floor so had an awesome view of the ocean, with beautiful sunrises. Our room was a studio, but served the purpose. The standard of the motel was immaculate. We had a buffet breakfast at the restaurant, which was very satisfactory....

We stayed for two nights on the 5th floor. Room was overlooking the water (it seems all the rooms face the beach) and was very well presented. Beds were comfortable, interior was nice and clean. Staff were very helpful, especially with the weekend being quite busy for them. There is free wifi which is always great. Enjoyed our stay and...

I have stayed at Scenic Hotels elsewhere, but never encountered problems like these. The view of the ocean from the top floor was wonderful. The room was spacious and well appointed, as was the bathroom. But... There was an extremely loud humming noise. (And I am rather deaf.) At first I thought it was the air conditioning, so turned it...

Only one night's stay at Scenic Hotel and we both wished it could have been longer. The other comments on this page give a good feel of the hotel's situation and the quaint charms of Napier. The food and beds were good and I felt the staff were pleased to look after us. Many thanks.

We had requested an upper floor room to get the best views but only managed to be on the third - not really a huge problem. It was good to have an opening window as well as air conditioning. I can only confirm other favourable comments about the location of the hotel, rooms and comfortable beds. Fresh fruit at reception...

First impression of this hotel...amazing, every room faces the bay (the hotel is in fact built as a half circle with rooms only on one side of the corridor). The hotel is walking distance to the beach, restaurants and the amazing art deco city that is Napier. The pillow topped beds are a dream to sleep on, the rooms well...

Thank you for advising us of the "crazy" system. I agree you should have been allowed to breakfast 15 minutes early as the restaurant was empty and it would have made absolute sense to accommodate you earlier. I have taken this up with our Executive Manager who oversees the Food and beverage Department. He is making sure that this is...

We had a room on the third floor, facing the sea. The room was well presented, and comfortable, and the beds were great. All the staff were pleasant, and check in/out was easy and quick. We have stayed here before, and probably will again.

I was part of a large group of guests staying over a busy weekend while attending a conference right opposite the Hotel.
