The location of the Masonic hotel is perfect for seeing the waterfront. Facilities were fantastic with quality restaurant and bar attached to the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Called reception a few times and were always pleasant.

All staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble but special thanks to Dave who went out of his way of help with our car issues. Room clean, well furnished and recently redecorated and quiet considering just over the street. Next time we will get a bigger room for all our deco gear. Love the preservation of this... More

Stayed 2 nights in a suite and it was a delight. We are art deco enthusiasts and staying in this lovely hotel for the winter deco festival is perfect. Our suite was roomy and warm and the bed was super comfortable. The renovation is sympathetic to the era, the décor is fabulous and the restaurant/bar is warm and inviting. The... More

I always enjoy stays here. Great staff, great location, enjoyable atmosphere in both The Rose and The Emporium. The staff especially always do their best to be friendly and see to guests comfort. The meat lover's pizza and onion rings at The Rose are to die for!

Really enjoyed my stay here - staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel was beautiful, my room was exactly as advertised, the Emporium restaurant had great food, and the location was very central, right by the beach and the city centre. Thanks for a great stay!

We had a night at the Masonic and were lucky enough to be upgraded to "The Royal Sweet". This Hotel is a "fun" place to stay. It is in amazing condition for its age and has obviously being restored and maintained to a very high standard. Our room was very clean, tidy and warm considering it was a cold winters... More

I love everything about the hotel, from the staff who gave us an upgrade to a suite, to the amazing staff member who saw me taking a last minute photo from the balcony and gave me a tour and potted history of the hotel, including areas closed for renovation. The room, food, outlook and especially the deco design is fantastic.... More

We stayed for only one night. The front desk lady was very helpful. Suggested a lovely winery and gave us good directions. The room was clean and comfortable. We were on the street side and it was a bit loud at night and in the morning. Other than that, good experience.

Great venue with many gorgeous art deco details and super friendly customer service - relaxed but attentive, in that classic Kiwi way. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the ambience. Good choices on the menu. Yummy food too.

It's like going back in time. Character exudes in this hotel. We both felt special staying here. Everything you'd expect - warm, comfortable, spacious and great atmosphere. Stay somewhere a bit different. ( 20% off breakfast too if you order before 8.30pm) .
