Great hotel just outside of Napier in Ahuriri which basically is Napier but just round the corner! The Crown Hotel is situated right on the front and is very modern with everything you need in the room. The hotel is spotlessly clean and all of the staff where extremely friendly. If we come back to New Zealand we would have...

It was very well appointed studio room with a kitchen area allowing us to cater for ourselves for breakfast which we ate on our balcony watching people in...

We stayed for one night in an oceanview room and wow was it worth it. The sunrise was one of the best I've ever seen. We stood outside on the balcony for ages in the early hours just watching it. The rooms were clean and staff were friendly. A brilliant base for those wanting to see the quaint art deco...

We were able to check in at midday. Our room was spacious and well equipped with fridge, microwave, dishwasher etc. The balcony faced the sea and the location was perfect. Car parking on site was conveniently placed.

Very friendly and helpful staffs to start with, fantastic room with excellent sea view on balcony (we had the third floor one bed room premium).

Just cannot find anything negative to say about the Crown. The title says it all. We were able to check in on arrival at 12.30. Our apartment was large, fully equipped with a sea view balcony. There was adequate on site parking and the staff were helpful in every way possible.

If you consider staying at this hotel, ask for the newer bedrooms overlooking the sea. Lovely views with spacious balconies. It's a shame that you are so exposed to your neighbours though - a small screen would benefit The bedroom is probably one of the best design I have seen. Spacious room, very comfortably furnished with many thoughtful aspects Compact,...

The spotless room and large bath have everything you could want from bathrobes to jacuzzi tub. Ours had a fireplace and small sitting area. The bed was extremely comfortable. Staff very helpful and welcoming. No lift/elevator but staff helped us with luggage.

We stayed one night here en route to Wellington. It was a very comfortable room with kitchenette and joy of joys free 24 hour wifi - not often found in NZ. There is an adjoining cafe for breakfast popular with young travellers so a fairly long wait for breakfast.

We booked into the Crown knowing nothing about it except that it was recommended to us by the owners of the B&B rated No 1 in Wellington. We knew they had high standards and thought that if they rated it highly, we would too. And they were right. If anything, the Crown exceeded our expectations. Check-in was fast and friendly,...
