Need some modernising. Becoming dated. Penthouse suite stairs difficult and a bit dangerous for aged guests. Overall however, very good.

Quick Rest in Napier
Loved the location by the beach and along the Marine Parade. Hosts were wonderful in helping us get the most for the limited time we had in Napier (1.5 days). We will stay here again if we make it back to this wonderful city.
