Why do you go to Napier? To experience the art deco ambience! So why not stay in the best art deco place in town? We got a top room (#137) for NZ$170 a night. Easily worth it. Lots of motels down Marine Parade, where I stayed on a prevoous visit, but why not be in the middle of twon in...

We stayed for two nights and happy with our stay. It looks as nice as the photos. The hotel is well located. We could easily have a stroll along the streets to look at art deco buildings and the beach is just in front of the hotel. If you like to run in the morning, I highly recommended to run...

We stayed here for three nights while visiting Napier and were impressed. Stayed in the Art Deco Suite which was lovely but it had doors opening onto the balcony and another guest walked into our room thinking they were in a public area so needed to keep our door shut which was a shame as the weather was very warm....

This hotel lives up to its name, retaining majority of its original features. The hotel seems to have been recently refurbished to a high standard without compromising on the Art Deco original design. A grand staircase or a period style lift will take you to the 1st floor, a large lanai area is located on this level at the front...

Great views and top price but not five stars, no room bar and dust on the shelves. Hotel was helpful, but impersonal. Luxury status slightly overstated.Didn't eta at the hotel but at mr D's where the food was ok but the service and price not reflecting its reputation. Maybe it was a busy weekend

Really unique hotel with a lot of history (QE2 stayed here in the 50s). The breakfast is really good and the rooms were really nice, although a little small, but that's to be expected for an old hotel. Great location and hotel exterior blends seamlessly into the downtown Napier art-deco district.

This hotel is in an awesome location. It has a great restaurant and has a lovely old fashion feel. The hotel would rate a 5 if the rooms were better. They are clean and comfortable but the bath is very difficult to get in and out of. If you are young, no problem; However, if you have ANY mobility problems...

Super located hotel with a real difference as it is like stepping back in time. All rooms of a high standard and decorated in the Ary Deco style. We were located close to the coast and enjoyed the shops, restaurants and cafes close by. We even went out for an early morning run down the coastal path and bike way...

We stayed in one of the apartments and wasn't ot grand. It really is spectacular. We walked around the hotel to explore the detail and restoration work done. The hotel keeper saw us doing this and took the time to tell us of all the restoration work he has done and the detail furnishings the owner has accumulated. Well done!...

We stayed in an appartment, which was great, we felt like we were at home. We tried to extend our stay, but the Hotel was fully booked. The Food and Service in the Restaurant was good, but I didn't like the"Disco Music" and the acoustics were quite loud.

Hi there, Thank you for staying at and reviewing the Art Deco Masonic Hotel. Our apartment is a beautiful space and it really does feel like a home away from home with the large lounge and living area opening out onto the beautiful sunny patio.
