I stayed here for only one night, but was very happy with the choice as I found the hotel quite quirky and certainly different.

My room was a 'King Superior Studio', however, my definition of a studio room is seemingly different from what I was provided with, but as I was only staying for one night, it was suitable for my needs.

The room itself was not overly large but everything was functional and there was a patio door leading out to the Marine Parade Balcony (communal).

I managed to park my car directly on the road opposite the hotel which was reasonably cheap during business hours, but is free after 6pm until 8am the following day, however, I understand the hotel has an arrangement with some nearby parking facility.

Location is very central for shops and bars (there is a bar attached to the hotel) and is located very close to the waterfront.

The staff were all very helpful and pleasant and a big shout out to the housekeeper who returned my wife's handbag to reception after we checked out and to the receptionist who contacted me by phone to inform me that the bag was waiting for us.

Fortunately, we were still in Napier doing some last minute shopping, but credit to the honesty of the staff involved. Thank you.

Breakfast was included in my rate and was served in the annexed bar and was very enjoyable, and certainly my choice was filling!

As others have highlighted, the town and the hotel is very Art Deco orientated and adds to the atmosphere.

The Masonic is a great choice and the town is a great place, its just a shame my stay was so brief, however, I would certainly recommend a stay here.

The Art Deco Masonic Hotel is based right in the heart of Napier, only a hundred metres from the beach. Unfortunately the beach is not good for swimming, but Napier is a beautiful town full of art deco buildings.
The Art Deco Masonic Hotel is beautifully restored inside and looks really authentic. The rooms however do have modern bathrooms and have been fully restored.
The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom spotless and very modern, although not huge.

We stayed at this hotel when we were down in Napier for a friend's wedding. The hotel was beautiful and the service was great. The bar/restaurant servers were impeccable. I thoroughly enjoyed the caramel apple mule - I could drink that all day! Would happily stay here again.

What a gem!!! From the history of the building to the fantastic decor, this hotel is full of character. We stayed in the Pacific Suite and it was fantastic! The restaurant attached is very popular with good reason - wonderfully warm atmosphere with creative drinks and yummy food! HIghly recommend!!

Room tip: Pacific room is a splurge but has a door that leads right out to the main balcony (which is shared by the whole hotel, by the way)
