The rooms were clean and in good condition. Although it's not in the city centre it's still a good location, right across the road from the beach and walking distance to other places to eat and drink. Little Easter No sky, terrible bed, lumpy pillows. Very overpriced for what you get! Wouldn't go back.... this is a $150 a night hotel not worth $310 a night that's for sure!!!!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am pleased to see you found the room clean and in good condition with lots to see and do in the local area.

I am extremely sorry you found the bed uncomfortable. As you can see from our other reviews, we get a lot of comments about how comfortable the beds are, so it is concerning that yours was not and would be great to know which room you stayed in so we can follow this up.

We do have sky tv channels in all of our rooms. Instructions to access this are on the information sheet given on arrival as well as in the compendium in the room. We also have a pillow menu available in the rooms if the standard pillows are not to your taste. It is disappointing some of these issues weren't brought to our attention at the time as we could have quickly and easily given further instruction to negate these issues.

In terms of price, rooms range in price depending on availability. The entire Hawke's Bay was fully booked Friday and Saturday nights and as such we were selling rooms at our high season rates. You would have been hard pressed to find a room anywhere in the region at similar prices to these. In saying that, we are about to head into the quiet season and again, prices will reflect varying availability.

Kind regards,

We stayed in one of the two large serviced apartments to the side of the Navigate and it was a beautiful stay, nicely furnished with two living areas and a super king bed overlooking the water... very modern and comfortable and in a great location. Would recommend to anyone.

I travel regularly to Napier and tried lots of different hotels but keep coming back to the Navigate. Large,very clean rooms, reasonably priced and very friendly staff. The attached cafe serves good breakfast and great coffee. Highly recommended.

Thought we would try somewhere different when on business in Napier.

Very pleased. Extremely well maintained, huge, well appointed and convenient for travel. Staff were helpful throughout.

Not badly priced either.
