“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

We stayed here overnight in march 2013. The owner could not have been more helpful with some information about the local resturants and attractions. The rooms were a good size and well appointed the bed was clean and comfortable. The stone beach was across the road and great to watch the ocean crashing in and hear the noise of the stone being moved by the ebb and flow of the tide.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013 via mobile

We stayed for 2 nights in a studio room with a spa. $270 was a great deal compared to other accomodation we looked at. Very handy to the town centre. Our room was very well cleaned, and in order. The room was very spacious, and had awesome views of the beach, although I would try an upstairs room next time to get an even better view. Rooms downstairs have spa baths. The hosts were very welcoming, especially the lady who we met on arrival. Very pleasant lady.
There is not really anything to fault as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. No aircon could be an issue during hot summer days though. Its located on Marine Parade so of course it can get busy at times. Get in early to get a good park as there is not much space & other guests sometimes dont know how to park within the lines. Wifi was extremely slow at times so I would switch onto my own internet connection on my phone. But still had an incredible time here. Thank you so much to our hosts. :-)

We stayed two nights here.Very convenient to downtown. Walking distance to grocery. Good set-up for cooking and dining. Comfortable bed. Table and chairs outside on patio and a plunge pool. But the best? A spa tub! What I needed after long drive through the countryside. The owner and the lady at the desk were very helpful. Only problem was the parking. Fairly narrow spaces and drivers who could not stay within the lines made for some interesting parking situations! Would stay there again.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor. Some road noise. A higher floor would be less noisy and make for a bett...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2013

We were driving along the Napier waterfront looking for somewhere to stay after our flight out of Hawke's Bay was cancelled. We liked the look of the Edgewater so went in to check out the rate and their availability. The host was lovely, very friendly and accommodating, and the rates was really reasonable. The rooms were nice, super clean, and the shower was fabulous! The only slightly negative thing about the Edgewater is that it is on the main road, so can be a little noisy with the trucks going past on their way to the port, but I reckon that the stunning view of the ocean out of your window makes up for that.

Room Tip: Upstairs is nice, you get a better view of the water.

We arrived a little early and on check in the host kindly contacted some tour companies to see if we could get onto an afternoon wine tour, we did and it was great!! Our room was clean and comfortable with a great shower. On check out our host recommended we visit Te Mata peak and we are glad he did it was an awesome view as we had a very clear morning. Thank you again for your great hospitality!!

We booked two adjacent rooms for 2 couples and were pleased we had a shared balcony where we sat in the evening enjoying wine and nibbles, overlooking the sea. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. This is not deluxe accommodation, but very pleasant and good value for money. The location is good, it's close to the city centre. Staff were very helpful and parking is available. Will stay here again. Even though the road is busy, there is little traffic after dark and we had a good nights sleep.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013

Situated on the waterfront with views of the ocean. There is a main road, but busy by day and quiet at night, so I had a good night's sleep. I requested a ground floor room and was able to park my car close by in the private car park. My room was a good size, well equipped, very clean and well decorated. I liked the very compact kitchen area with fridge & microwave. Out front, there is a small patio area where you can sit and watch the sea view. It is only a 10 mintue walk to the shops, cafes and restaurants. Also free wi-fi.

Room Tip: All rooms front the main road. 2 levels - higher level has a better sea view.
