Very Good8.0
Lovely Motel
Really enjoyed our stay, unit had plenty of room and was very clean. Only complaint is - I did not like washing the dishes in the bathroom hand basin.

Stench of Fish
Firstly reception staff when we checked in were great but after that I wouldn’t stay here again. Firstly it was incredibly over priced for what it is, secondly it really needs some money spent on it to do it up and more importantly however they spin it, they are next to a fish plant and it really stinks. The stench comes into the room when ever a door or window is opening and in the heat of summer it really is horrendous. Normally I wouldn’t do a review as it’s best to take things as you find them, in this case the smell was so bad it would be wrong not to. Do youself a favour and go somewhere else.

would absolutely come back
The hotel was in a lovely spot and our room overlooked the water. Great location to bars, restaurants. Nice walk around harbour seeing what the local fishermen have landed. Bottle shop over the road for wine to enjoy on the deck. Best fish and chips in NZ just down the road. Enjoyed looking at all the lovely gift ideas in Port O Call... a 5 min walk away.

Bluewater Hotel, Napier
Napier excellent, hotel so so.
Hotel had great views, was convenient for West Quay, but was a bit soulless as well as being right next door to a fish factory, so a bit smelly! 2-3 miles from centre of Napier so next time will consider somewhere closer. Napier is fascinating - architecture, restaurants and excellent wine tours!
