This is an excellent hotel, with beautiful public spaces, comfortable rooms, a lovely location on the sea front, free parking, free wifi and very friendly staff. The breakfast buffet is good, and there are DIY washing/laundry facilities on each floor. Very difficult to find anything to fault.

Hotel is situated on the sea front overlooking road and building work opposite so no view to speak of. Room 219 was quiet with a king size bed but mattress and pillows very soft, bar, tea, coffee, kettle iron and board plus table and 2 chairs. Nice bathroom with shower over bath, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and moisturising lotion. Breakfast... More

Choose to try the scenic circle after seeing it on TV that it takes dogs. Our border collie is very much part of the family so we decided to bring him along. Booking was easy, check in a breeze. We had a ground floor room with outdoor access to the grass for the dog which was perfect. Room was well... More

Only had 1 night in this hotel but I could have stayed in the bed for days - it was the most comfortable bed ever. It's in a great location right on the sea front, but although all rooms have a sea view some like mine were blocked by trees so if you a perfect ocean view, ask for a... More

After reading the advice on Trip Adviser we took a punt with this hotel. We are very glad we did. Service top notch and hotel was to a high standard.

The hotel is very modern with a clean look just a short distance from this very Art Deco City. The style inside the hotel is a direct contrast to the architecture nearby.. The restaurant is very average - they did manage to forget my wife's meal and kind of forgot I asked for a rare steak brinign a medium-well done.

Having escaped Wellington after the quake we had a long and tiring drive to reach the hotel. We had a warm and friendly welcome, an upgrade to a corner room and a view that was stunning.

Our second stay at Scenic Circle. Friendly welcome, a lovely room and great location in the town centre.. Also, a stunning view over the north end of Marine Parade. We recommend and will stay again. We enjoyed a drink in the bar - were sorry we could not stay fo a meal in the inviting dining room.

Only here for one night unfortunately, so not really in an depth review. Staff were very helpful, room was clean and comfortable with a spectacular view over the ocean, slightly spoilt by the building work across the road but that's hardly their fault. Good base to explore Napier.

Lovely spacious, super clean rooms with good in-room facilities, including great shower and really nice complimentary toiletries - also loved being able to open the large window for fresh air. Bed was a little soft for me, but still got a good nights sleep. Great location moments from the centre of Napier, friendly and efficient staff.
