My tour group stayed for 4-5 (can't remember) nights at this hotel in Napier. Loved it. I shared a twin bedded room with my friend, and we both thought it was a very nice room and hotel. The staff were accomodating in the extreme - we enjoyed a great breakfast every morning (included in our tour price). The bar was... More

I recently stayed at The County Hotel, Napier. From the moment I arrived I knew I was staying in a special place. The staff were so welcoming and the service was perfect. The room was spacious and elegant. The Churchill Bar was sheer delight and "Oh so sophisticated" . The restaurant dining was superb. I can't recommend this place more... More

We had the most wonderful stay at the County Hotel in an amazing suite which had everything you could wish for, including the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The food was simply divine, the fillet of beef just melted in your mouth. Breakfast was a real treat with so much choice of fresh breads, fruit and deliciously... More

My wife and I have just spent two wonderful days at this hotel, The building is full of character and interest but it is the staff led by the owner Chris Barons that make all the difference. They are friendly and professional and quite simply nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is excellent and well presented with... More

Lovely hotel with friendly staff. Churchill's Bar is a welcome place before a meal. Breakfast was really good value for money and lovely food. The restaurant food looked good but didn't eat here - definitely will next time!

All the staff were so friendly and helpful from reception, to waiting staff and the chef, the owner was charming and his running of the hotel shows through to every... More
