We do not believe that the staff of this hotel could do more to make their guests feel welcome and to ensure the comfort of their guests.The hotel itself is an Edwardian delight - a bit like stepping back in time but in the nicest possible way. Our room was spacious and extremely comfortable. No detail seemed to have been... More

My wife and I spent 3 days at the County Hotel in September 2014. We had previously been there for dinner with friends which was a very pleasant experience and decided to stay on our next visit to Napier where my wife's family has resided for 5 generations. The decor was reminiscent of an Edwardian top London Club and the... More

Since starting this review, I checked the trip advisor recent reviews of this property and saw there was little I could add. A great experience, helpful staff, and it will be top of our list for any future stays in Napier. It is not a modern plastic hotel that is replicated in different cities through a variety of countries, but... More

Just spent 2 days at this lovely hotel - friendly staff, great restaurant and close to everything you need. Parking across the street, bowls of fresh fruit in the lobby, a complimentary drink in the bar for us, and staff who provide great service and pass on nance dotes about the hotel's history for visitors to the region. Definitely plan... More

A hotel is usually just a place to stay whilst enjoying the reasons for a visit to an area. In the case of The County Hotel in Napier, it swiftly became the reason to be in this city. Not that Napier didn't offer my wife and I some wonderful attractions; it was just that The County was a treat in... More

The County Hotel is a piece of history, the rooms are fantastic, and all different. The restaurant offers a very sophisticated menu with the braised beef cheeks definitely being my favourite. Karl the maître de is one of the most polished and knowledgeable maître de I have met. His wine knowledge is second to none and his level of service... More

I usually seem to stay in modern, plastic, shiny establishments but with my usual Napier hotel fully booked I somewhat reluctantly tried the County. It is older but has a ton of charm. Rooms are comfortable, tastefully fitted out and facilities all work well. The bar was nice and warm in contrast to the weather outside and the happy barmaid... More

My partner and I wanted to enjoy a romantic weekend away and we chose The County Hotel in Napier. As it turned out this was a great choice, the rooms are large, very comfortable and quite. The dining was well above average, with a good selection of wines and there was complementary port in the library All of the staff... More

We had a wonderful time at this hotel. Really enjoyed the period setting for the whole hotel. Our room was lovely, very quiet, great nights sleep. The staff were very attentive and extremely friendly. Very central to everything. Loved the whole experience. Definitely stay there again. Chris & Laurie

Having spent a few days in Tongariro National Park we wanted to explore the east coast of the North Island. We had pre-arranged to visit the Hawkes bay area so decided to base ourselves in the "Art Deco" rebuilt city of Napier. The County Hotel is one of the few remaining buildings to survive the 1930's earthquake that destroyed most... More
