Got a table for lunch and enjoyed goats milk tart; and calamari. both full of flavor and the calamari was melt-in-your-mouth tender. Busy weekend but the meals came quickly despite...

We have previously stayed at this hotel, but not with our children and not in the apartment. What a delight to unlock the door to our room to discover such a spacious beautifully decorated place. The children were delighted with their own room complete with tv and wifi and we were delighted to have our own space to! The lounge/...

This Is a fantastic hotel. We would not have visited Napier had a friend not recommended it, we are so glad we did. Due to a fire many yeas ago the whole town was Rebuilt in the Art Deco style. It is amazing. The hotel itself is lovely. Our room, whilst not large was adequate and was really nicely decorated...

Great location in such a great little town. The place was professionally run, it was clean and tidy with nice attention to detail. Lovely outdoor area upstairs and outdoor area within the two restaurants. The room was nicely laid out. Free wifi. Comfortable bed and a good shower.

Great hotel, amazing atmosphere, clean rooms which are very nicely furnished. Top location in the middle of the center of Napier. I can also recommend the hotel bar in its Art Deco stile which serves very good drinks! (try the "old fashioned" ;) )

The Hotel has a lovely Art Deco vibe to it. Really nice bar restaurant. The roof top deck overlooks the water and it is a great place to join up with friends with a bottle of wine. The rooms however are much too small. If you have two suitcases you are really jammed in there. They block the temperature control...

Hi there, Thank you for staying here and also for taking the time to post a review. A couple of points I'd like to make; yes some of our rooms (Superior Queens, hence the Queen bed) are on the small side but our King and Studio Rooms are much larger and more spacious. Also, you'll find in most hotels around...

My wife and I stayed at the wonderful Masonic Hotel in Napier for a night while travelling south through New Zealand. I'm having difficulty finding the words to describe how wonderful the building, staff and the surrounding area are; but I would say if you can, stay at this hotel and you will not be disappointed!

Hi there, Thank you for choosing us and also for the fantastic review. Over the past 3 years the whole hotel has been refurbished and we've kept a lot of the old character but with a modern twist.
