Reviewed 22 November 2016 via mobile

An elegant compromise between what was the norm for 1930s and expectations of 2016. Charm, architectural and design detail, and simple accommodation standards. We had a smallish but functional room. Direct access to the balcony, with morning sun and view of the sea was glorious. The vibe in the bar is energetic, fitted out with nostalgic but uncluttered memorabilia. Superb...

Ambience of this historic hotel was excellent, up-to-date facilities and welcoming staff. The popular bar/restaurant on the ground floor was a tad noisy for me for an evening meal, but otherwise a very pleasant stay.

This Hotel has really taken on the Art Deco spirit of Napier and is full of Art Deco touches where ever you look. Our Suite was lovely and opened out to the balcony overlooking Marine Parade and the ocean.

Our weekend stay at Art Deco Masonic was in a word magical. Art Deco ambience is superb. Friendly efficient staff, and the busy in house dining at Emporium Eatery & Bar certainly gave one a sense of being where it was all happening. Framed black & white photos from the past decorate the walls and artifacts from the 30's are...

When you arrive at the front desk, Vickie's southern hospitality will warm even the chilliest day. Settle in to this classic boutique hotel near the city's restaurant district and enjoy the comfortable, newly decorated rooms. Go for a long walk choosing either the Hawkes Bay promenade or the interesting city streets. It's all good.

Room was advertised as a 'suite' but really just a small bedroom and small adjoining room. Very bad experience in the restaurant. First two glasses of wine were just above freezing point - waitress said they had problems with the fridge. When I ordered a glass of red wine ($15) it was only half full. Staff at breakfast very unwelcoming.

Everything about this hotel is gorgeous. I mean, yes, the decor, but the staff are so helpful and friendly, the food is divine, and the setting is delightful. I cannot wait to return for personal reasons so that I may indulge some more.

You definitely pay a premium at the Art Deco Masonic Hotel to stay in one of the most iconic building in Napier. In terms of style, the hotel delivers - it's wonderfully colourful and quirky with each room decorated with different fabrics and wallpaper. It's a worthwhile experience particularly if you can negotiate a good rate. Other pluses were the...
