we planned this stay so many months ago as part of our North Island tour and it was just lovely. Exactly what we hoped for. The port in the library was a nice touch though thanks to some rowdy guests we didn't get quite the quiet evening we hoped for. Still, colourful characters can be fun. All in all a... More

The staff were always willing to make our stay very pleasant. An absolutely charming Art Deco hotel. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. The bathroom was clean but lacked space to deposit toiletries.

We are familiar with this Hotel as we have stayed there for 5 nights in the past 2 years. We were treated like royalty on all occasions and each time we simply cannot fault the service and amazing staff. We had dinner recently before flying out to Auckland to return home to Melbourne and the waiter (Karl) deserves a merit... More

An absolutely charming Art Deco hotel, complete with most friendly and helpful staff, not to mention the little things like help yourself to port in the library. Dinner was delicious and beautiful presented. The bathroom is up to date modern, I would only have liked a little more space to deposit my own bathroom things near the basin. But this... More

The hotel itself is absolutely gorgeous with a fabulous interior. Small things, like port to drink in the library, and an old shoe shining machine, made it great to explore. The service was lovely. Unfortunately most of the room we stayed in was taken up by the bed, so it was a bit cramped. The cooked breakfast was really small... More

The County Hotel is as charming, comfortable, and elegant as its name is plain and simple. From the professional staff, to the comfortable rooms with modern baths, to the charming amenities (Wine Street Restaurant, Churchill's Bar), the property makes a sincere promise .. and then delivers. Without doubt, it is a slice of the past in Art Deco Napier, although... More

Our stay in this Edwardian hotel was just delightful. During our travels in NZ, my husband and I stayed overnight on a rainy weekend and we felt we were in a time capsule. The staff were friendly and always happy to oblige and the decor was fascinating. The rain kept us in and what better way to spend those hours... More

In this most Deco of towns, it is lovely to stay in a hotel which reflects a bygone era with graciousness and attention to detail. Rooms are super comfortable, restaurant and bar are nice, but the truly special touch is the library with comfie chairs and complimentary port.

I had the pleasure of staying for one night at the County Hotel. The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed the free glass of yummo Seaview Shiraz. Loved the Port and reading room... brilliant :)
