The County Hotel Napier
Ranked #2 of 46 Hotels in Napier
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 September 2017

A great little Hotel in Napier and has the art deco charm. The best part were the front of house staff especially Amelia and Ashleigh.
Everyone made you fell welcome and without being over bearing or cheesy. Recommend to anyone wanting a great place to stay and friendly hotel staff, then I would recommend the County Hotel.

Room Tip: Away from Marine Parade, otherwise a really quiet Hotel

We stayed in the County Hotel for one night and had a fantastic experience. The two receptionists, Amelia and Ashleigh, were so welcoming and helpful. The complementary brownies in our room were a lovely touch, along with the free port in the library. The hotel has a lovely ambience and is located right in the city centre, just a minute's walk from the beach. Would definitely return.

The hotel is lovely in its own right - very quaint.
But what made it a truly spectacular stay were the over accommodating staff.
I can't thank them enough.
Oh and the complimentary port..just a bonus.

A warm welcome greeted us from all the staff. From first entering reception and being escorted to our rooms to the Churchill bar staff and wine street restaurant hosts. The owner is friendly and advised on the Art Deco buildings walk which we also recommend and the reception recommended and booked a wine tasting tour which was also good.
The food in the wine street restaurant is tasty, well presented and competitively priced. The small touches such as tasty fudge in the rooms and liberal quantities of wine (to help us make an informed decision on our chosen bottle) helped to make our stay in this beautiful place memorable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Winner of the Art Deco Supreme Award. The owners of Napier's County Hotel wished to combine the qualities and ambience of some of the finest hotels in the world. They have achieved this by incorporating fine service, fine dining and luxurious accommodation in line with 1930's Art Deco characteristics of Napier. The County Hotel is situated in the centre of Napier which is considered to be the 'Art Deco Capital of the South Pacific' and has captivated the emotions and senses of countless admirers. Originally built for the Hawke's Bay County Council in 1909, The County Hotel is one of only two significant buildings to have survived the massive 1931 earthquake. Faithfully refurbished as a boutique hotel, the County Hotel now stands as Napier's premier Hotel. The hotel is home to an extremely popular, multi award winning Wine Street Restaurant, the superb Churchill's Champagne Lounge, an intimate library, well-appointed function areas, conference facilities and eighteen luxurious guest rooms and offer a variety of accommodation packages. Come and enjoy this architectural masterpiece with its atmosphere of conventional luxury and allow yourself to be pampered by the attentive service of our devoted staff. ... more   less
