This hotel had a lovely ambience about it when we arrived. Welcoming staff, a comfortable room with a balcony facing the sea. The Milk and Honey restaurant alongside was intimate and the staff efficient and friendly. A great stay!

We stayed 6 nights in a Heritage room. The room has an excellent separate bathroom with spa. The room has two good lounge chairs and doesn't really lack for space. The bed was comfortable. The staff and really friendly and helpful. One minor annoyance is that the room service could improve. A couple of days we returned mid afternoon to...

Plenty on offer in the tourism line or simply relax on the balcony, talk a walk by the beach with an ice cream. The room was clean, very comfortable and the balcony was brilliant. The hotel has plenty of cafes and restaurants close by.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom room. It was nice with a kitchenette, small dinning table and lounge area. The bathroom had a jetted bath and separate shower and was quite big. The free laundry in the car park was great and there were plenty of car spaces available. The hotel gym is very ordinary, only dumbbells, a bench and...

Dear Aaron Glad to hear that you enjoyed our facilities and services within the hotel and you took advantage of the local area of Ahuriri.

The Crown Hotel is located in Ahuriri which is about a 10 minute drive to downtown Napier. It was convenient enough to Napier and also had several dining options in the area. The hotel itself is very nice and the room was a great size, with easy parking and free guest laundry. Our interaction with the front desk staff was...

Dear Saar814 Glad that you enjoyed your stay with us however apologies with the lack of information regarding the air-conditioning in your room.

Loved our stay at The Crown Hotel, just wish we could have stayed longer! The room was very spacious, the bathroom luxurious, the bed comfy and in a great location. The only very small thing I would suggest is fresh milk for a cup of tea was needed.

Had a lovely one-bedroom "apartment" with lots of room and good light. Helpful (if somewhat uninformed) staff who were willing to find the answers to questions but did not seem to know some basic information about the area (such as the Cape Kidnappers excursion).

“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.”
