Caring, friendly hosts, clean, modern facilities beachfront location with no road in between, breakfast on the patio looking out to sea, with safe swimming. Park your vehicle at your front door. Perfect!

Clean and comfortable. Bedroom lacks power point. The view is excellent. A few shops closed to the motel. The host is friendly. Carpark can get busy so maybe the owner can consider allocated carspace for each unit.

Harbour View has to have one of the best locations in the Napier region, with all rooms facing across Hawkes Bay, with nothing in the way - no road, no carpark, nothing. The road and carpark are effectively at the back of the motel. The view is one compensation for being a little bit away from the city centre: others...

My wife and I visited from Auckland during Art Deco weekend. Service was excellent, booked a year ahead and several communications received during that time to confirm. We have already reserved for next year. All rooms have a great sea view, upstairs moreso. We had a second room well worth it just to spread out our suitcases ... . The...

It seems that every room here looks out across the front lawns onto the beach (stony) and sea. Ours was an upstairs choice that was modern, clean, comfortable, with a small kitchen facility, television and free wifi. One entire wall provided fantastic views out over our balcony - pity it was very breezy while we were there so couldn't avail...

We stayed 15th-19th Jan 2017 and it was such a lovely peaceful place. Rooms serviced daily and friendly staff. Only downside is there is not enough parking. Even though we were told on site park was included in our booking we were told rudely by management to park on the road, which travelling with a baby is not ideal. This...

This hotel was right by the walkway by the sea. Close to some lovely restaurants and cafes. Bit of a walk to town, but the view is worth it. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Parking right outside your room.

The breeze comes straight off the ocean and through the double sliding doors we kept open all night. Had an easy night of it and didn't feel we were on business. Motels with separate bedrooms are hard to come by but Harbour View Lodge seems to have that well covered. Our rooms, bathrooms and lounge area were clean as a...

Nice views over the front lawn out to the sea. Our Executive room felt a little bit dated, the bathroom smelt damp/mouldy but was clean - (no extractor fan and we had to close the high window due to the high winds on the day). Parking was good - staff were great. Our booking did get mixed up initially but...

All top motels in New Zealand are good, but this one has exceptional location, why stay anywhere else in Napier. The motel fronts on to a big lawn that has no buildings on it and rolls over to the sea about 200 metres away. Very relaxing, well run, great location, with about five restaurants within 5 minutes walk and another...
