We spent a spontaneous long weekend in the Hawkes Bay with my four-year old. After one night in rustic accommodation in Havelock North (ie. a farmstay) we decided to treat ourselves to a bit of comfort and The Crown was perfect. Really great service on arrival - made to feel super welcome. The hotel is very well designed with balconies...

We stayed in the modern part of the hotel (not the heritage suites). It is beautifully done - absolutely spotless, super-comfortable bed, well equipped tea/coffee supplies and mini-bar. Best of all was the sea view (which we had specifically asked for). The problem (and why I have only rated the property at a three), is that the service at reception...

This is our 2nd visit here. Travelling with teenager so good to have a two bedroom unit. Great location and very clean and tidy. Comfy beds and good bathroom facilities. Cafe downstairs is good for breakfast or brunch.

I stayed in a 2 bedroom. The rooms are a tad bit small but really clean and right on the waterfront. The views are fantastic and great eating options in the area. Full kitchen in the apartment and the staff are really friendly.

Situated in a lovely part of Napier, amidst great coffee shops, fancy boutiques, good restaurants, opposite the beach. The hotel though is very basic. Odd air conditioner in the loungeroom with some DIY exhaust fan linking the bedrooms. It doesn't work. Bedrooms hot and stuffy with the westerly setting sun. No pool, no restaurant, no facilities of any kind, apart...

Ideally located on the bay within easy reach of restaurants nearby in Hawks Bay. Our suite was very comfortable and clean and the staff very pleasant and helpful. The on-site laundry was great with very efficient washer and dryer with free wash power. Recommended.

The location is great, about 5 minutes from central Napier. It was busy and interesting during the day with plenty of cafes but nice and quiet at night. Room was well equipped and beds very comfortable.
