This would have to be one of the best Hotel's we have ever experienced. Right from the moment we stepped through into the lobby we felt cared for and were made to feel special. What a beautiful place - from the outstanding period Art Deco features and décor, the in-suite spa bath, the complimentary Port available from opposite the Library,... More

When originally looking for a place to stay in Napier, I came across this fascinating looking building, ripe with Art Deco and Olde World overtones. Five star hotels are usually so absorbed in being trendy and modern, I was looking for something that added an untangible "feel" of true hospitality.

Welcoming and friendly. Very comfortable room. A first floor study with complimentary port and fruit. Free wifi and central location in Art Deco Napier. Breakfast generally good although continental option was a little limited perhaps because it was winter. But nonetheless an excellent place to stay.

The staff were extremely warm and always called us by name. It was as if we were part of the family! The 5 star Restaurant has a well varied menu and... More

Really loved staying here. Most wonderful atmosphere, excellent location, beautiful building and great food. The complimentary port in the library just one of the extra touches that make The County Hotel special,but it's the fantastic staff that really put it a notch above the rest.
