I recently had the pleasure of revisiting this hotel for business reasons. The hotel repeated the high standard that I enjoyed the first time that I visited. Congratulations on the recent achievement. I look forward to being able to visit again.

We had a wonderful time at The County Hotel. From the warm welcome until our departure 3 days later, we enjoyed the most personal service. We had a lovely large room with an equally large bathroom which felt utterly luxurious. We had booked Christmas dinner in the restaurant, although we tend to avoid eating in hotel restaurants, and we are... More

My partner and I were lucky enough to stay at the beautiful County Hotel for 3 nights in January 2015. This is a luxurious, truly unique hotel situated in the heart of Napier - the perfect location for exploring the wonderful Art Deco city centre. The hotel's team of staff were the most welcoming I have ever encountered, nothing was... More

Staying at The County Hotel is simply a wonderful experience! We arrived late one afternoon in Napier without any accommodation booked due to lack of internet access while travelling, and John Flatt and his team were able to help us out by rearranging a room configuration. The Hotel itself is sumptuous and elegant and a shining example of 1930's Art... More

We stayed at the County for five nights over Christmas. I'm from NZ but been living in London for some 20 years and this was first Xmas at home with family since I left. I thought that this demanded a nice hotel and the County seemed to fit the bill nicely. I was overwhelmed with the warmth of the welcome... More

Very accommodating and friendly staff. Restaurant on site. Food delicious with great staff. A perfect location for exploring Napier and Hawkes Bay. We were able to walk everywhere in the city from the location of the hotel.

The County Hotel is a well run boutique hotel in the centre of the art deco district of Napier. It is one of the few major buildings to survive the 1931 earthquake so that be reassuring for those who worry about the earth moving. More importantly the reception was warm, genuinely friendly and the rooms well managed and cleaned. Napier... More

I stayed at the County Hotel so I could explore Napier and the Hawkes Bay area. Pleasantly, I found the Hotel to be an experience itself. Many small touches, and friendly staff, raised this well above my normal '5 star big hotel chain' experience.
