We travelled to Napier for a weekend away with close friends and had a lovely time at The County Hotel. We had stayed a few nights a year ago and enjoyed our time there. We were especially looking forward to seeing Kay who we met there last time. Kay had given us fabulous tips on how to spend our time in Napier that proved to be exactly perfect for us. Kay was so friendly and made us so welcome I especially wanted to say Hello again!
Unfortunately Kay wasn't there this time but via e-mail she had given us suggestions for things to do. We picked a great wine tasting trip (Bay Tours) and enjoyed the Hastings Farmers market on Sunday morning.
Our friends hadn't visited Napier before but we all agreed we would like to return soon as there was lots more to do.
We took the "It takes two baby package" and loved it. All the special touches made our stay enjoyable. I especially like the message slipped under the door in the morning with the weather and news about the hotel.
We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and were very happy with the food. Everyone in the group found it hard to decide what to have at each course as the different options all looked good. I loved the prawn cocktail.
The girls at the front desk were especially helpful. We had a lovely Irish waitress in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner who we all thought was very good and friendly.
The rooms were perfectly clean and very comfortable. Ours had a lounge area that we could share if we opened up a door. This gave us privacy and also a shared area to relax together. The rooms had a wrap around balcony which was heaven!
We loved our stay and look forward to returning soon.
