10/10 Exceptional

Amazing stay here. Location was great with lovely balcony and sea views right next to the shore and path for walking along. Great coffee from a van just across the road. The aquarium is easy walking distance and well worth a visit to see their Kiwi. The spa bath was phenomenal, like having an indoor hot tub, great way to unwind after a day exploring. Ideally located to explore Napier. Loved it. Hosts were so friendly despite me having issues with my bank card whilst abroad.
