Stayed for a night for work. Overall it was fine. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were spacious with a separate desk and dining table along with nice new bathroom and kitchen. However there were a few things that detracted from the stay that could be fixed. The TV is tiny. There is no air conditioning built into the room and the room gets super hot - there is a portable air conditioner in the room but you have to keep the window open so the exhaust pipe can go out it, which defeats the purpose and the unit is incredibly loud. Bed and pillows weren't super comfortable.

I'd stay here again in winter if the price was reasonable but not as a first choice.

Stayed: March 2017, travelled on business

Good accommodation with friendly, helpful staff, willing to offer advice and to help with booking trips etc. Additional facilities (e.g. self-service laundry) useful when travelling between several locations.

Room Tip: Higher floors were quiet, but upper floor corridors very hot!

... but difficult to recommend. We had a single room studio, two large windows to catch the sun but no air conditioning. Couldn't bear to stay in the room in the day as it was hot and airless.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful, and the location quite good - if you want the centre of town.
Other rooms might be better.

This is described as serviced apartments rather than hotel or motel. For one night or short stay it's quite expensive compared to motels but compares well to good hotels. And frankly the room is of Hotel standard.

Good sized room with balcony. Rudimentary but efficient air conditioning. Very good bathroom. Good kitchen that was well equipped if you wanted to cook. Good size for a few days.

Excellent wifi connections.

Really friendly and helpful staff.

Parking can be onsite but at a premium price of NZ $13 or next door in the nearby public park for NZ $4 all day. But you'll need to get up early to pay the fee from 0800 the next morning. If you're there at the weekend part of the public site is a corporate site which is free at the weekend.

Convenient location for the beach front, the town and several pubs/restaurants.

A good place to stay.

First I will start with the positives the receptionists were welcoming and friendly. The hotel appartments are in an ideal location for the your visit to Napier.
It is a very fine Art Deco building but I feel Quest have been too greedy and made the appartments too small. The unit we were allocated had a very small bedroom with twin single beds. We spent 6 weeks travelling around both islands and these were the most uncomfortable beds we slept in or should I say attempted to sleep in. The living room was very cramped the space between the seats and the kitchen units was less than you would get in a narrow boat. It was well equipped and having a washer and dryer in the unit was very useful.
