Lovely room, terrific location, comfy bed, friendly staff. We were super frustrated by the tricky wi-fi, however. It was very difficult and time consuming to log on and then oftentimes it didn't actually work, even though we were technically logged on, so we would have to log off and then log on again. Very frustrating. Two of us had this...

From check in to check out, the service was prompt and professional. Our room had a balcony and overlooked the water. The rooms are updated and very clean and comfortable! We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area. Be cautioned - the "happy hour" next to the registration building is not complimentary.

Dear Ashton Glad you enjoyed your recent stay with us and thank you for your feedback! We do not advertise that the 'Alfresco Hour' is complimentary so not sure why you thought that. We do hope you will return to stay with us in the future. Kind Regards Michele Cole

Great location by the sea, very clean rooms with top quality towels, facilities, bedding & services. Staff were friendly and helpful. Nothing was a bother and service instant. Taxi was prompt . The chemist across the road, handy. Beautiful walkway around the harbour and to the town. Weather was sunny and we loved our trip to Napier for this year.

Lovely accomodation with lots of extras and outstanding service, but we booked online and the room we booked said "room with a view". We were put in a room at Road level so there is a concrete wall outside your sliding door for privacy, so when you sit down in your room your view is a concrete wall!

We were very pleased with our stay at The Crown by the beach in Napier. We were lucky to get an upstairs room with delightful views over the bay / ocean. The room was nice a big with excellent layout and new modern features. We did not request any pillow choices but found the ones supplied were just right. Would...

We stayed at the crown hotel in a corner premium room over Easter. The view from this was fantastic. It felt like you were in the heart of the action without being in the middle of town and all the noise. It was a lovely quiet location. The staff on reception were 10/10 and couldn't do anything more for us...

The hotel is situated on the sea front and our looked out to the sea. The room was very comfortable and within walking distance of the centre of Napier with all its Art Deco buildings. We walked in the vicinity of the hotel and then ate at the restaurant next door Milk and Honey.

I absolutely loved my 2 night stay! Your service was wonderful, including baggage help up the stairs! The space and the balcony with those glass stained windows with natural light flooding through, has really captured the true beauty of the heritage suites! Thank you for a lovely experience in Napier! I'll be back!
