Wonderful stay this weekend at the Masonic in the heart of Napier. Rooms were very nice and kept tidy, great service and good price. On site restaurant and bar was perfectly styled, and catered for large groups easily. Highly recommended and would certainly return. Thank you!

A welcome reception, with a comfortable room, in a hotel in the centre of this Art Deco town. Beautifully decorated which added to the experience. Minor quibbles included positioning of the mirrors but otherwise a very pleasant stay.

Excellent hotel. Beautifully maintained on the beach in Napier. Fine example of Art Deco architecture. Staff were friendly and helpful providing endless advice about things to do and places to go . Meals in both restaurants good quality if a little expensive . Rooms were good sized. Bed comfortable.

Enteriour is a perfect insight of Art Deco style. Gorgeous and heart warming, just like the staff. There is a beautiful view to Marine Parade from the balcony. The only bothering part sad the thin walls so we could clearly hear our neighbours.
