The Hotel has a lovely Art Deco vibe to it. Really nice bar restaurant. The roof top deck overlooks the water and it is a great place to join up with friends with a bottle of wine. The rooms however are much too small. If you have two suitcases you are really jammed in there. They block the temperature control...

Hi there, Thank you for staying here and also for taking the time to post a review. A couple of points I'd like to make; yes some of our rooms (Superior Queens, hence the Queen bed) are on the small side but our King and Studio Rooms are much larger and more spacious. Also, you'll find in most hotels around...

My wife and I stayed at the wonderful Masonic Hotel in Napier for a night while travelling south through New Zealand. I'm having difficulty finding the words to describe how wonderful the building, staff and the surrounding area are; but I would say if you can, stay at this hotel and you will not be disappointed! Our room (114) was...

Hi there, Thank you for choosing us and also for the fantastic review. Over the past 3 years the whole hotel has been refurbished and we've kept a lot of the old character but with a modern twist. Right from the carpets, chandeliers and the trinkets throughout to the staff and building as a whole, attention to every detail has...

What a wonderful place to stay in Napier. Close to everything, staff attentive and able to provide good advise on getting around, Food great at the hotel restaurant. Super comfy bed! Lovely to be right on the waterfront. Wish I could have stayed longer. Will be back.

Very good hotel. Perfectly situated near the boulevard with a view on the bay and sea. It's all in art-deco style but well maintained. Rooms are modern with all facilities and airconditioning available. There is a bar and restaurant which can be busy, so reservation is needed. I loved the whole stay.

Had occasion to stay at the Masonic for a large function over the weekend. The food, service & overall experience were wonderful. The bed was the most comfortable I've slept in (Since found out what it was!)

Restful Art Deco Building in popular down town location aside ocean and entertainment nodes. Comfortable undemanding rooms, many with access to a spacious and secure level one terrace-verandah. Ground floor restaurant, bar and breakfast menu options all offer exceptional value. Yes, free wifi too!

Stayed over the long weekend. Fortunate to have the Royal Suite. What a great room facing the ocean. The separate sitting room was a great place to enjoy company with friends over a wine. Room atmosphere was a step back to the Art Deco era, well done to the owners, and the photos and memorabilia enhance the experience. The attention...

Short stay in this beautiful hotel. Comfortable room with 'style'. Well equipped, we appreciated the fridge especially. Reception staff very helpful. Service in the Emporium Eatery and bar was not brilliant, large groups getting priority, but the food was lovely.

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights. The decor not only in the hotel but also around the town was very Art Deco which made it seem like going back in time but with a modern day twist. With displays of old cars outside to go round the town in (for a fee) it was really a place...
