The Te Pania Scenic is a very good four-star experience. All rooms have scenic views out to the Pacific. The hotel is ideally situated for walking into this lovely town. Car parking facilities are excellent. Rooms and beds very comfortable and immaculately serviced. We found all staff without exception extremely courteous and helpful. Very highly recommended.

I recently stayed for two nights, one night was prior to my wedding and the other my wedding day. I mentioned in my booking that I was getting married and there were a number of nice touches that were greatly appreciated. I was given a room on the side of the building, which was nice a quiet and had a...

The Scenic Hotel Napier is in a great location right on the sea front and a very short walk from the centre of town. The rooms are a good size and the hotel is very clean and well maintained.

My travel agent booked me an ocean view room. I got room 215 with no ocean view.. Asked desk clerk for an ocean view room and he said he was sold out. I have traveled all the way from Dallas Texas to look at building across the street. Room is marginal with a small hair drier that does not work.

Location of the this hotel is excellent with the city shops and restaurants and attractions all within a short walking distance. It is shaped in a curve so that all rooms get a beach front view, and I can recommend the top (6th) floor (corner suites with double views if you can) especially. Facilities were great as was the customer...

We were touring New Zealand in January 2016 and decided to stop off in Napier. Napier is beautiful Art Deco town by the sea. The Scenic Hotel Te Pania has excellent sea view from every room. The hotel rooms are of Scandinavian design. The beds are comfortable and the service is friendly.

This hotel had very good attention to detail. The room was large with excellent space for the luggage, table and chairs facing the view, tea/ coffee preparation area and dressing table.

The hotel’s website photos are a true representation of this hotel – light, clean, and refreshing décor. The location is perfect: opposite the Ocean Spa (swimming pool complex), yet traffic is quiet and you can hear the waves on the beach in the evening, plus it’s only a 5 minute stroll to the shopping and eateries of Napier. All rooms...

I have stayed many times over the years at this hotel and unfortunately it has slipped a little in the food/restaurant area. While we were there the hotel was full although we were the only table to dine in the restaurant one evening ( an uncomfortable experience) and I must say the food was ok but no more. A shame...

ScenicHotels, General Manager at Scenic Hotel Te Pania, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback, we value your comments. With regards the full Hotel and empty restaurant, this was because we had a large wedding party who were dining off-site hence the full hotel. I am sorry you didn't feel comfortable in the restaurant, but I understand being the only diners is disconcerting. We look forward to your return visit....

Nice comfortable room although the bed was a bit too soft for my liking. Good view out to sea and an excellent laundry facility. Stayed on a room only basis so cannot comment on breakfast or the restaurant generally. Staff very friendly and helpful.
