Another wonderful stay.
Great location.
Very quiet with a great view of the harbour and port.
Very spacious room with all you need.
Large bathroom and spa bath.
Great bed.
Good heating.
Very clean.
Outdoor furniture for relaxing and looking at fishing boats coming and going. Shame we arrived late and left early as on a business trip.
Would love to relax here.
The East Pier Restaurant was right outside our room but only a minutes walk from other rooms.
Our preferred place to stay in Napier so will be back.

We love Ahuriri, and the location of this motel is perfect. If you have a ground floor unit, your doors open out onto the grass which stretches out to the waterside. At night you have hear the waves, and not a lot else. A little noise from the higher floors, but people are generally considerate. The unit was comfortable enough - nothing extra, but all that you need. No extras like a newspaper, and it is challenging to get your laundry done. Only one washer and one dryer, but they close the laundry at 7.30pm. Car parking is barely adequate - there were no car parks for us one night when we returned from dinner out. Our number one issue though is the smoking - we had smokers on both sides of us this time, who regularly sat outside their units to smoke, hence we had to continually close the doors up as the smoke filled our unit. Because it was warm, we chose to leave the window open at night - which meant we were awoken by the smell of cigarette smoke. If only there was a no smoking section, we would highly recommend this motel, and enjoy returning and being within easy walking distance of all that Ahuriri has to offer - eateries, seaside walks, stores - and it is even a pleasant walk over the hill to Napier itself.

Ít's a few years since we visited. We had booked an executive unit but make sure you ask for cooking facilities when you book if self catering.Initially an electric frypan and element were offered but than a downstairs disbled unit was provided with full cooking facilities, large fridge/freezer and walk -in shower. We extended our stay and were cheerfully accommodated in a 2 bedroom unit upstairs for the same price with staff even offering to carry baggage groceries upstairs for us when we shifted!
Spotless, best Wi-Fi connection of our trip, free morning paper.A short walk to shops and restaurants.
Would stay here again.

Room Tip: The view is terrific from both levels.Direct beach access from the ground level, balcony upstairs.

We pulled in late in the evening to a very friendly reception, and the offer of their best room for a good price, and if we wanted a bit more time in the morning, to just ask. Got the milk and even the internet password without having to ask for it.

The room, on the top floor, was supreme! Balcony, separate bedroom, TV, spa bath, kitchen, outside chairs and table, massively cosy bed, clean everywhere, plenty of loo paper, warm, great view of the ocean (even in the rain), lovely shower, ironing board if we needed it. Couldn't have asked for more for an absolutely great price!

Thank you Harbour View - we will definitely come again. Excellent all round.

Spacious, clean & modern rooms with great ocean views & pleasant seafront walks right outside the door. Not close to main attractions but a few good restaurants close by - fine as long as you have your own transport.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have balcony, ground floor rooms have patio but close to footpaths.

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
