Hi there, Thanks the staying with us recently. Great review too. There are so many things to talk about here as you say. Being so close to the sea and CBD gives guests the opportunity to relax and be a tourist, or to shop till you drop. The best of both worlds we say. See you again soon. Regards, Graeme

Overall a pleasant stay with comfortable bed and good sized bathroom. The one downside was a very poor breakfast. Inadequate staffing and generally poor quality preparation. The quality of food was disappointing.

Hi there, It's great that you enjoyed your stay at the Art Deco Masonic Hotel and that your room was to your liking. It is disappointing however to read about your breakfast experience. I trust you mentioned this at the time and we did something about it? Regards, Graeme

We went here with friends and had lunch plus a couple of beers. The food was good and the service very pleasant. The main reason for going here though was to enjoy the iconic setting and it did not disappoint.

This Is a fantastic hotel. We would not have visited Napier had a friend not recommended it, we are so glad we did. Due to a fire many yeas ago the whole town was Rebuilt in the Art Deco style.

Hi Jenny, Thanks for stopping in to Napier and the Art Deco Masonic Hotel, we're glad you chose us. The earthquake in 1931 brought about the Art Deco style which we are now known for throughout Napier and indeed our building also. Hopefully one day you'll come and visit again. Regards, Graeme
