The location is great, about 5 minutes from central Napier. It was busy and interesting during the day with plenty of cafes but nice and quiet at night. Room was well equipped and beds very comfortable.

We highly recommend the Crown Hotel for a stay in Napier. It's in a perfect location at Ahuriri, with direct access to wonderful walks around the shore and a range of restaurant/takeaway options. Room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Ask for a room on the higher levels and it is possible to see in the rooms from the ground floor...

We had a fortnight driving tour of New Zealand from top to bottom so decided to take a two day seaside break in Napier. The Crown was ideal as it afforded a one room mini apartment overlooking the sea. It was clean, comfortable and staff were accommodating and friendly. We had great weather so were able to use the balcony...

Beautiful place to stay. Located on the waterfront, bars and cafes near, everything was spotless and spacious. We had a little balcony, a well stocked mini bar, and a selection of pillows. Enjoyed small plates dinner at Milk and Honey, the restaurant. This is not a cheap place to stay but I consider it well priced for a top spot.

I stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and was completely happy. The suite itself was very clean and there was a beach view from the deck. The kitchenette was well-equipped. Complimentary parking was provided. The spa bath was great. In terms of location, it's just across the road from the beach - can't beat it. The staff were also friendly...

Very welcoming reception on arrival. One bedroom suite is great value for money - spacious, very clean, quality furnishings, excellent walk in shower, good amenities and lovely balcony. Great location - beach and restaurants on your doorstep. What a refreshing surprise after spending numerous nights at various hotels in Napier which were rather pricey. Will definitely only stay here on...

Thanks to our travel agent, Bridgette at Experience New Zealand Travel, we spent a couple nights at this first class water front hotel which proved the perfect location from which we explored Hawks Bay. The staff were friendly and helpful and made our Christmas holiday stay a delight.

“If staying in the 1-bedroom suite, only some have a spa bath, though the rate with/without is the same. If you request a suite with a spa bath at booking, they'll do their best to accommodate.”
