We were so impressed with this hotel - a beautiful room in a great spot - comfortable bed and well appointed room. Having the option to sit out on the verandah was another highlight.! Great bar and fabulous service

Great service when I phoned to book extra nights the staff were very helpful. The room was lovely with its art deco styling. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. We loved being right in the middle of the city and close to Marine Parade so we could enjoy lots of walks.

I stay at the Masonic frequently (3/6 times per year) it's always been one of my favourite hotels to stay at, the staff are awesome, the hotel is one of a kind, well appointed with a very trendy Art Deco theme. The food at either of the on site restaurants is some of the best you can have in Hawkes...

Our favourite place to stay in Napier. Parking is cheap. Easy walk to all the restaurants and shops. A quick stroll along the beach to clear your head is right across the road. Bar staff and drinks choices are great also.

Stayed one night in the Royal Suite in which Queen Elizabeth stayed 6 decades earlier. Charming room with alot of charactor. Pricey but a chance to touch a piece of history. Staff was very helpfull.

The staff were very friendly. My room was very good and comfortable. Close to everything. There is a bar and restaurant on site but unfortunately I did not have an opportunity to try. I would come back again.

Stayed for one night in Napier, and very glad we chose to star at the Art Deco Masonic. Beautiful, stylish and very comfortable queen room. Loved the period features of not only the room - armchair, wallpaper - but also the other part of the hotel. Our room looked out onto Tennyson Street (pretty quiet). And we had great cocktails...

Lovely old hotel that has been beautifully restored. The modern bathroom was beautiful, functional and a surprise for an old hotel. The staff was lovely and incredible helpful. The restaurant food was delicious and beautifully prepared. We were only there for one night and were sorry that we couldn't stay longer.

We stayed 3 nights here and got the tail end of a cyclone so the weather was miserable while in Napier. This hotel is well located in town with easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants and as the weather was so bad while we were here we could walk around mostly undercover. The hotel is a beautiful Art...
