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... More

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... More

Excellent location, great cafes and a bar nearby, right on the water, lots to see. What more could one want? We were here for a sad event (funeral) but this place was just right for the family members to relax and regroup. Top tip: The units on the ground floor open out directly to the lawn, walkway and sea. The... More

There are plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walk. The room was spacious and comfortable. laundry facilities were good and reasonable.

Harbour View Lodge accommodated a number of our guests and us during the weekend of our wedding. Delightful location on Perfume Point within walking distance from a number of restaurants, a cinema and the beach. Great view of the sea from the room. Owners were very obliging.

The room was clean and large but maybe in need of modernisation. The motel was in a very good position for restaurants and some great view over the ocean. The staff were very friendly and helpful and housekeeping good.

Great and clean hotel. Housekeeping do a great job. View is amazing over the ocean. Good location with restaurants and bars in the area and within walking distance. Only reason for not 5 stars in no fans or air con and room gets very very hot and stuffy apart from that was great.

This was perfectly adequate - and if other places in NZ had not been so great would have a higher rating. It was a very decent sized apartment - but not as clean as it might be. On the beach - but not a very inviting one. a short walk to a reasonable selection of local restaurants, cafes and shops... More

My wife and I stayed one night in an executive suite with sea view and loved it! Very clean and spacious room, with beautiful view of ocean. Also fairly reasonably priced at $180 NZ. The resident black cat at reception was very sociable, as were the employees! 😀
