Hello "pschub_799410" It is surprising how many guests enjoy our Royal connections. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip did stay here on their Coronation Tour; her father (before he became King George) and even an Uncle were guests at various times. Thanks for posting you review.

A welcoming 20s period style hotel with a lively yet calm atmosphere. Beautiful furnishings and decor. Central to all town events. Friendly helpful staff. No car parking facilities but reserved numbered places in a nearby council car park. Parking charges apply and it may be cheaper to use council places instead of the hotel. Check it out.

What a place! from the moment you walk up the steps to the hotel you are whisked back in time to the days of art décor and the 1930's. The attention to detail is second to none, the apartment/room was decorated with antiques and art décor right down to the claw footed bath. I would certainly recommend this hotel to...

A well located hotel with its excellent bar and restaurant, The Emporium below. We stayed in a double room with access to the communal balcony overlooking the sea.On a warm sunny day this would be the perfect spot to pass some time sipping the local wine, reading a book or just gazing out to sea. All the staff were friendly...

We stayed 3 nights at The Masonic. Very clean and comfortable room. We stayed in the Art Deco suite that had access to the lovely balcony that extends across the front of the hotel. The weather was warm, so sitting on the balcony for tea or wine taking in the view of the Pacific Ocean made for a delightful stay....

Great stay again. Lovely reception, room and atmosphere. Central Napier with waterfront views, spotlessly clean, comfy bed, nice coffee and tea options and China teacups. No Sky but why would anyone want to watch TV with Napier on the doorstep! Thanks we will be back...maybe even to the Pacific Suite!
