  • . (03/2017) A beautiful garden located at the center of city. Well maintained and different types of plants are grown very well. Awesome waterfall at the center of garden. Relaxing atmosphere. Good for both - spending time at leisure or for quick visits.
  • I was disappointed with all the plastic bags and rubbish in the gardens. I picked up all that I could see.
  • Paradise in the City....after the Sunday markets it is quite nice to come and sit down with an ice-cream & coffee and simply sit and relax in peace....in Town! Gardens are really well maintained and tidy. Great first or last stop if you are walking up the hill or to Bluff Hill lookout.
  • When we arrived at Napier on our cruise, most people who didn't go on an excursion immediately went to the city center to see the art deco buildings. My partner and I, however, walked directly to Centennial Garden to see the waterfall. It's a quaint, unassuming garden. There was hardly anyone there except for the ground keepers who were tending to the flowers and plants. This is a wonderful little place away from the art deco buildings. We recommend to see this first before going into town.
  • A small park with rocky cliffs and a waterfall as backdrop. Just a block from the bay.

Where to stay in Napier

pier boasts a range of accommodations, most located on the tip of land that ends at the Port of pier. From boutique Art Deco hotels and rental apartments to backpacker hostels, the central district offers options for many tastes and price ranges. With the city's buildings so attractive, a sea view may not be as much of a deal-breaker as it is elsewhere. Farther out of town, you can choose from an array of more economical motels, or at a campsite.
