We chose Anchorage Motor Lodge for our two-night stay in Napier because it was perfect for our planned fishing trip leaving from the wharf just opposite. The owners were very helpful and friendly, letting us use the Lodge kitchen to cook the fish we caught on that trip. Our second-floor room was large, clean and comfortable, and the bathroom had a big spa bath which was very welcome. Cooking facilities included a two-ring electric hob as well as the standard microwave, fridge and basic utensils. If you don't feel like making breakfast, you can also order breakfast in the room or go to a cafe down the road. Wireless internet is free. Ahuriri has lots of good cafes and restaurants just a step away though you need transport to go into Napier itself.
The upstairs rooms all give onto a walkway/balcony, with some tables set into open recesses. This has the advantage that all the rooms face the harbour but means that you could find strangers eating an al fresco dinner (or breakfast) right outside your room (we asked permission, which was speedily granted by our neighbours).
