When booking online or directly with Kennedy Park Resort.

Other than as is provided for by legislation and as follows, I agree that Kennedy Park Resort Napier accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to motor vehicles or guest property.

Please note that our check out time is 10.00am. All room keys must be handed in to reception on departure.

Our reception is open 24/7, 365 days a year.


Reservations will be confirmed only on receipt of a deposit. A deposit of the first night's stay is required. Balance of accounts are payable on arrival. Sorry, there is no reduction for early departure or late arrivals.

Credit Card Processing Fee

Please note, if paying by credit card a processing fee will apply.

Cancellation Policy

A $15.00 administration and cancellation fee will be deducted from all deposits refunded due to cancellation. Refunds are only guaranteed if the reservation is cancelled with seven days' notice. Cancellation within seven days will attract a cancellation fee of 100% of the deposit paid.

Self Isolating Facility: Kennedy Park Resort Napier has a longstanding commitment to being Hawke’s Bay’s supported self-isolating facility, providing accommodation services for essential workers and self-isolating guests if required. This means after a medical officer has assessed the case and they have no appropriate means to self-isolate they will be transferred to Kennedy Park Resort. If we are asked to support a self-isolating guest, the person will be located away from others in a stand-alone unit. They will not be allowed to leave their room or the dedicated outside space, and are unable to use any of the resort’s facilities. Security will be in place under the strict procedures of the Hawke’s Bay District Health Board. If you wish to cancel your booking due to this reason, please contact us for a full refund.

My Vaccine Pass: From 20 December 2021 we will require everyone aged 12 and over who comes to Kennedy Park Resort to show their My Vaccine Pass (or official medical exemption) under the Government's traffic light system. Our restaurant Storkey’s and Conference Room are already operating under this system. If you wish to cancel your booking due to this reason, please contact us for a full refund.

By accepting the terms of the cancellation policy you agree to enter into a contract where Napier City Council will hold any deposit paid by you, for your benefit and will not take or retain such deposit until such time as the deposit becomes non-refundable to you under the general terms of the cancellation policy.

Napier City Council will not be in breach of this Agreement and will not have any liability to you whatsoever in respect of your booking if it is prevented from complying with any of its obligations under these Terms and Conditions by reason of Force Majeure. "Force Majeure" means any act, event or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of Napier City Council which has a substantial impact on the Resort and/or the tourist and/or hotel industry in the geographical market in which the Resort operates, which act could include, without limitation, casualties, war, rebellion, revolution, blockades, riots, insurrection, strikes, lockouts, labour or industrial problems, civil unrest, embargoes, domestic or international disturbance, acts of terrorism, outbreak of disease, virus, pandemics or epidemics, world and/or regional health threats, loss or substantial reduction in major airline services, governmental actions or delays, fire, hurricanes, earthquakes, storms, floods, other natural catastrophes or severe weather conditions or acts of God, travel or health advisories, orders or recommendations issued by any relevant government authorities or international bodies or agencies, or damage or destruction of the Resort.
