Peregian Beach, Australia
Reviewed 8 December 2016

We loved this place. It's just across from the beach but in the centre of town with genuine Art Deco vibe and history. We are at the Emperiom restaurant and we're quite happy with the meal and the atmosphere.

Stayed one night on trip around New Zealand. This hotel is quirky and different. Well situated for exploring the Napier region. Rooms were clean, a little on the small side. Staff helpful and friendly. Enjoyed Irish bar attached to the hotel.

Reviewed 7 December 2016

The Art Deco Masonic Hotel is a beautiful, meticulously maintained hotel in the heart of Napier. It's a pristine example of the art deco style -- which, of course, is what Napier is known for. The only downside is that the rooms are tiny so try to book one with access to the balcony terrace if possible.

Thank you for choosing to stay here and also for taking the time to post a review. We've gone to a great deal of effort to maintain a lot of Art Deco features in our building whilst also having modern amenities. Half of our rooms have access onto our beautiful balcony too. Thanks again. Regards, Graeme

Excellent hotel, perfect location and beautifully appointed. My only piece of advice, book parking early otherwise you have to carry luggage from over the road. Thank you Art Deco for a truly Art Deco experience!

There were beautiful views from the balcony across the town and pier and nice rooms with comfortable beds. An extractor fan for the bathrooms would help with the steam and air flow through the rooms as well as having the room number on the outside of the balcony door to stop other guest from entering the room.Highly recommend this hotel,...

We were the first to use this refurbished room so everything was spotless. Very comfortable bed with nice linens. Very good location and we really enjoyed our free welcome drink. Breakfast and dinner in restaurant were reasonable but nothing special.

One the best stays we had on our trip around NZ. We stayed in the Royal Suite but we looked into other rooms and the overall presentation was excellent. Location is also very good with reserved parking close by.
