Beautifully refurbished heritage building with gorgeously old-fashioned yet trendy decor, helpful staff and great adjoining bar and restaurant. We were given complimentary French bubbles and a delicious cheese and fruit platter as part of our package as well, and for breakfast there was a very nice continental buffet including fresh honey literally dripping from the comb as well as a...

If you are looking for a boutique hotel in Napier that not only has welcoming, efficient staff but also is very affordable, look not further than the County Hotel. A mix of vintage embraces its early century design (it was one of two buildings that survived the earthquake ) with the city's Art Deco theme. This quirky mixture also allows... More

We stayed in the most beautiful suite in the hotel (so large that it felt more like an apartment than a hotel). The large bathroom including spa bath, ornate trimmings and comfy bed were only outdone by the friendly service that all the staff gave. The location is within walking distance from the lovely township and the strip running along... More

What a fantastic hotel in the heart of Napier. Got a brilliant reception when we came in, stayed in the Kotuku room - with its own private spa bath. The room and the bathroom were immaculate & clean. We had dinner at the Wine street restaurant and the food was amazing as was the service. The breakfast next day morning... More
