Always a good retreat with un-intrusive staff, handy to local restaurants, good coffee spots and art. Rooms have space and good bed linen but the cleanliness of shower bases and tiles is deteriorating, easily fixed though.

One of the best places to stay in Napier! 5 star quality!! We've stayed at the Crown many times! It is slightly more expensive than other places but you get what you pay for! Great location, very clean and tidy, great service. All of the staff are lovely, the cleaners etc so friendly and smiling! Hence why we keep coming...

Nice room with a kitchen area. We were on the first level looking out to the water across the street. The room was nice and had a little sitting area. Bed was comfortable. The restaurant connected to the hotel was good for breakfast. a great place to stay when exploring Hawks Bay.

Staff are amazing and prepared to go the extra mile to make you stay special. They organised for one of my party to play golf and provided towels for a swim at the beach. Apartments are lovely with big bathrooms.

Water views, lovely and immaculate rooms. Add very helpful staff,parking on premise,free internet, and numerous bonus services and you get five stars from me. We loved having a seating area separate from the bedroom. The Milk and Honey restaurant right downstairs will provide room service if you are too relaxed to put on shoes and sip your wine on their...

The receptionist was very helpful and went above and beyond to help me out. I had broken a tooth on the journey here and she sorted out an appointment at the dentist for me. Wonderful service. Our room was clean and spacious, the wifi was fine for my use. We had lovely views and sat out on our balcony to...

Very friendly and helpful reception staff member. We were staying only one night so weren't able to compare one day to the next. A possible venture may be to consider having a small discount for supergold card holders.

......the room had expansive views of the harbour. The furnishings were all very comfortable. The fresh milk in the fridge was a bonus as was the view of the harbour from the bedroom. The reception staff were friendly and efficient. Very close to the waterfront eateries. Highly recommended as a place to stay in the hub of Ahuriri.

We stayed in the old part of the hotel and found the room to be perfectly nice, spacious and with good facilities. Staff were helpful and friendly. The unreliability of the wifi drove me up the wall by the end however - may have been better in the newer part of hotel.

Northern lass from Northumberland. Stayed 2 nights and the hotel was great. Room size and bathroom was a good size. Comfortable bed. On one night we ate at their milk and honey restaurant and it was lovely. The only negative, a needlessly very long check in, in my opinion some reception staff would benefit from further training.
