About East Pier

This upscale waterfront hotel in Napier's historic Ahuriri port area enjoys a majestic setting overlooking the ocean. On-site dining and uninterrupted sea views complement East Pier's breathtaking location.

Modern, air-conditioned studios with plain decor and balconies/terraces feature satellite TVs and work desks, as well as mini-fridges, microwaves, and hot drink facilities. Suites with kitchenettes, lounges, and sofa beds are also on hand. Many rooms boast sea views.

On-site parking is free, as is Wi-Fi, which can be accessed throughout the premises. Conference/banqueting venues are available for hire.

Breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas, and à la carte evening meals are offered in a relaxed, brasserie-style restaurant which also stocks an impressive selection of wines. Guests who prefer to dine in their rooms can call upon room service.

Positive Reviews

Views are nothing short of spectacular

Reviews are full of gushing comments about the sweeping ocean views on hand from the restaurant and some rooms. Visitors say sitting out on the balcony/terrace, looking out over the ocean in such peaceful surroundings is a supremely satisfying experience.

Location is a big vote-winner

According to reviews, travellers absolutely love the location of this property. Being right on the seafront is, visitors say, just unbeatable, especially with the meandering boardwalk right outside the hotel's front door. Having the north end of the city centre within easy striking distance is deemed a bonus as well as it makes visiting restaurants, bars, and shops a breeze.

Very modern property throughout

Guests point out that this hotel has a very fresh, modern vibe. The airy public areas and wide, naturally light corridors are highlighted in many review comments, although it is the contemporary, pristine-looking guest rooms which garner the most praise.

Negative Reviews

Some issues with the food

Guests here can have a less than positive view of the hotel's culinary options . Visitors with specific menu requests (vegan, gluten-free, etc) note that the restaurant isn't very adept at accommodating their needs. Some diners also believe that the food served up here is rather expensive for what one gets.
