“A memorable family holiday.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Originally booked to stay for two nights,2 adults,2 children but it was such a lovely relaxed and enjoyable place to come back to we stayed on for four nights! We really enjoyed the café on site for coffee and breakfast and it was an absolute pleasure to have the children's playground across the road, Napier only a short drive for shopping, the Aquarium and loads of fun for all of us! Not to mention a sea view and the soothing sound of the ocean!
Would definately stay here again!

Our second stay. Plenty of space in a great location. Well equipped kitchen and laundry. Comfortable beds, well designed bathrooms. Quiet but in the heart of Ahuriri with great views. Wifi worked. Perfect for my family and Andrew was a pleasure to deal with

Excellent place to stay near Napier. Had a boutique feel. Not quite in Napier proper, but in the more local-feel suburb of Ahuriri. Plenty of excellent dining options within walking distance.

The room was spotless and had a cool/trendy vibe, complete with Eames dining chairs and table. Totally clean and spotless room and bed. Walk in shower.

+ Boutique style hotel.
+ Great little cafe in the lobby area, ideal for a quick brekkie with homemade options and fresh pastries.
+ Friendly staff.
+ Free underground, secured parking.

- Wi fi was free, but was complicated to sign on and seemed to want to charge a fee.

Lovely airy, sunny room, lots of space with a cute discreet kitchenette. Large comfortable bed with amazing linen. Good off-street parking. Ideal site as opposite the beach, easy walking paths and the added attraction of good eateries close by. Reception very helpful and knowledgeable. A bit disappointed with the lack of Sky TV but otherwise everything else meet with all expectations.

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed our facility. By the way we do have SKY channels available so that was a shame you did not recognise this. We hope you can check this out next time you visit Napier.
