There are a lot of fancy options in art deco Napier, but for a quick trip through the Shoreline looks acceptable and convenient. And it is. The smallish apartment is well appointed and organised with a tidy kitchenette and a separate sitting area. The balcony looking over the sea is a pleasant place for the evening canapés. The small negatives are the steepish climb to the third floor, the congested car park and the noisy freight and logging trucks trundling along the esplanade to the port. It is difficult to understand how the locals could tolerate such a beautiful part of their city to be continually desecrated by the passage of so many heavy trucks.
Room Tip: The view is good from the top level, but the tradeoff is the climb
