“Clean and comfortable with excellent service”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

stayed in a upstairs room. Amazing views and comfortable accommodation. My only gripe would be the two cane chairs as lounge furniture wasn't very comfortable. This isn't 5 star accommodation and the prices reflect that, but the views are 5 star plus. Have stayed here in the past and would stay here again.

Room Tip: upstairs rooms have the better view

Stayed three great nights here. Lovely location - a couple of miles from Napier centre but super position with good sea views and access across the grass to the only swimming beach in the Town. Water clear and warm. Staff incredibly helpful and very nice spacious, clean, comfortable apartment. Great place to stay. And Napier is such an interesting Town to visit. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We liked being upstairs.

This is great value for money on the shore side of the road so great views without traffic passing by, a great advantage. We had an upstairs executive room, worth the few dollars extra. Range of eateries nearby with West Quay only 5 mins by foot or take away options too. You can walk straight out onto the boardwalk. Free wifi that worked is a big bonus too.

Room Tip: go upstairs! better views

Nice clean & well appointed appartment, with fantastic views of the harbour. Free wifi was a bonus. We walked into Napier for something to eat - the town was very quiet & there seemed to be a shortage of restaurants but we found a lovely Italian eatery.

Yes the room is enormous and we look right out onto the ocean (everyone does) but as an "executive suite" i was not expecting a dated room (circa 1990) that is quite tired and in my opinion not worth the additional money im paying. Free wifi is good but this is not a cheap motel so clearly Im paying for location and for wifi anyway as its at least $20 more a night than any other place we have stayed in NZ including Auckland. And seriously a SURCHARGE of 2.5 -3.5% to use a CREDIT CARD!!!??? That is just ridiculous.

We stayed in a two bedroom until upstairs with amazing ocean views. The room had everything we needed. Large TV in one of the bedrooms was a bonus. Very quiet place to stay with very little road noise. The service was great from the time we arrived. They also offered the room at an ongoing discounted rate for future and regular visits. There was also a spacious fridge/freezer which we needed for all the fresh fruit we purchased at the orchards! There have been ongoing improvements to this motel and it is excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have the best views.

Reviewed 6 November 2013

Hawkes Bay and Napier were high on our list of places to visit and as the Bay came into view, we got quite excited at its beauty. Once in Napier, we wanted to find a sea-view accommodation for the night and the i pointed us in the direction of the Harbour View Lodge. A very comfortable, clean and modern room looked out over the sea; all utilities functioned well and we enjoyed a good night’s sleep; dawn broke with the sun pouring into our room. Highly recommended.
