A gorgeous, unique and stylish hotel with beautiful rooms and friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable bed with crisp sheets, a great selection of teas and coffee and a couple of cookies thrown in for good measure. Bathroom is beautifully tiled and includes lovely toiletries, hairdryer and tissues.

The theme is art deco - and that is done well. However there is not much else to say about it. The service is 2 star - enough to check in and out - but nothing else. Breakfast is a motel style check-box form for continental delivered - and few options. The room was comfortable although the air-con unit did not work properly so the room was pretty chilled, and parking is two blocks away. We had to remind them that parking was supposed to be free when we received our booking confirmation with a parking fee.

Wonderfully located in this amazing city. I just wished for a little less white LED globe lighting and some diffetent lampshades; drums just don't meet the brief, so many other options whuch would have set the hall and rooms off so much better that these kmart lookalikes. That's it though, felt very special staying there. Everything thing else spot on.

Where to start. The hotel was amazing. Welcoming, home away from home with an art deco twist. Very comfortable, yet it made us feel special. Staying there was relaxing, an experience, a delight on the eyes. Attention to detail was everywhere. Very clean and tidy. Location was superb. In the middle of the art deco district of Napier. Walk to beach, boardwalks, parks, shops.

Had a 3 night stay here over Easter, room was not on the main road so I think that meant it was quiet but then no view. It was convenient to town and local attractions and shopping. No parking onsite and we were billed unknowingly for 1 day parking on the Saturday. The other days were free parking in the city so if its not free parking days (good friday and easter sunday) you'll be charged. The food in restaurant was average and they never asked how the meal or food was. We ate in the main restaurant (Emporium one night and The Rose another night). See reveiw for Emporium and The Rose. Both average. Service not great and main reception service was ok, but not that receptive to feedback. Our shower ran cold and super hot, so watch out as goes scolding and cold. The bed was ok, but it was 2 beds put together. Air con worked ok. Loads of glasses and 3 cups, 1 bread and butter plate and 2 tsps is all you get. So don't expect anything else, kettle and iron both worked fine. Fridge was useless, things not kept cold. Only free to air tv, no sky at all so no sport or movies in the evening. Loving looking and restored, but not worth the $289 per night. $50 discount for shower and fridge, would have just preferred it work. Would not recommend and would def not stay there again.
