My wife and I stayed here for two nights. It is a unique and beautifully restored historic hotel with very friendly staff. Each room is named after a native New Zealand bird. From our period styled room, we were able to step out onto a balcony and also open the windows to let in the cool evening Napier air. Each... More

We stayed here for our 3rd time in April 2015. One of the few buildings to survive the 1931 earthquake because of it's cement structure. Have Chris, the owner, tell you about the history of this old world charm hotel and the work he had to do to turn it in to the beautiful hotel that it is today. If... More

All the staff were well on their game and nothing was too much trouble. My wife and I are both Vegan and the chef met our needs with flair and style. Plus they had an... More

The rooms were roomy, great wifi reception and the food was delicious. Location was also excellent, near the marine parade and the Main Street. Felt really welcome and pampered... More

We stayed at the County Hotel in Napier in April 2015 and absolutely loved it. The place is gorgeous and you feel as if you've stepped back in time to the early 1900's. Art deco furnishings and decor throughout - grand. Our room was beautifully stylish, clean and furnished with every modern convenience you'd expect in 2015. White tiled bathroom,... More

Loved this place, will definitely be staying there again. Great staff and room. Amazing building. Loved being able to have a drink at Churchills (in the same building), have an amazing dinner at Wine St Restaurant (also in the same building), then retire to the the library upstairs. They even had port!

I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the UK, USA and Australia, and I can say with hand on heart that The County Hotel in Napier rates as one of the best. Right from the welcome when I checked in, until our departure, the level of service was faultless. Add to that the superb quality of the... More

This was our first trip to Napier. What a beautiful, quaint old town. You felt like you had been sent back to the 1920's. The County is a lovely olde worlde boutique hotel. The staff are very friendly as is the owner. Chris Barons. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was lovely. The wine list extensive. The bar staff... More

John, Chris and all the ladies made my stay effortless. My clients all commented what a brilliant venue it was for training and networking. I will be back both socially and... More
