New Zealand is fortunate enough to have a wide variety of accommodation options to choose from. Whatever standard you seek, there is a price and quality to suit your needs. Accommodation is available in abundance at the major tourist locations, but also scattered around off-the-beaten-track places - wherever you go, accommodation is never too far away. One thing to note about accommodation in Napier is that you should be sure to book early for peak holiday times, for instance over the Christmas holidays and long weekends. During these times accommodation is often booked out well in advance.
In 1931 a massive earthquake (7.8 on the Richter scale) nearly obliterated the city of Napier. As a result, many buildings were demolished and rebuilt in the architectural style of the times - Art Deco, Spanish Mission and Stripped Classical. Today Napier has one of the most outstanding collections of 1930s architecture in the world - influenced heavily by Frank Lloyd Wright and the Chicago School. The Art Deco Walk is a permanent attraction, and each February Napier hosts an Art Deco Weekend - a not-too-serious celebration of the 1930s. Napier has a busy port and large amounts of frozen meat, wool, pulp and timber are shipped from here. There are many cafés within walking distance of Napier's central city area and a walk along Marine Parade where there are many amusements (a marine park, mini-golf, swimming pools, roller blading, bumper boats and miniature racing cars) is a pleasant way to start or end the day. Napier's iconic statue 'Pania of the Reef' is sometimes compared to Copenhagen's Little Mermaid. Accommodation is abundant in Napier and the surrounding area and ranges from luxury to budget; hotels, self-catering apartments, motels and lodges (some with restaurants), homestay; holiday parks and motor camps with self-catering units, budget cabins and campsites. There is also a beachfront youth hostel for backpackers. Families and groups welcome at most establishments; seasonal and group discounts may apply.
