What a wonderful experience I have had with my recent stay at the County Hotel in Napier during the Art Deco weekend. Not only were the rooms beautifully decorated in period wood paneling but the décor was like stepping back into a time when elegance and sophistication were at its peak. To top this off, the owners, Chris and Angie,... More

Its... More

The County Hotel provides excellent service, tasty food and some remarkable features retained from its former life as imposing council offices. The hotel has been sympathetically re- designed by the owners, giving it the feel and grandeur of an old country house. In keeping with a building of this age, some things break down occasionally, but this adds to the... More

The hotel's deco is very nice and I really enjoyed it. The service is great and I was even provided a copy of newspaper 150 years ago. I stayed there the night before my birthday and so it was memorable. The reception was very helpful, whilst the only pitfall was the internet doesn't work. I didn't use the restaurant as... More

We had no problem with what is or isn't included in the price because as a rule... More

This hotel has considerable charm and our room (the Huia Room) was very spacious and comfortable. Not sure how many features are genuinely original, but do check out the back staircase which is lovely. The location is excellent and just steps from the Museum, the shopping precinct and the seaside promenade. But do check your documentation re extra charges. We... More
