Farnham, United Kingdom
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

A very comfortable hotel, with a quirky bar providing the food and drink in what would be described as a pub in the UK. All very presentable if you like canteen eating. A very noisy venue in my view but the food was perfectly edible. Breakfast was a little ordinary and frankly not good.

Beautiful Art Deco Hotel. Lovely room and very helpful staff. Would certainly recommend. Wish I could have stayed longer! Very central location too. The reception area is something else! Nice seating area outside too

Hi John, Thanks a lot for posting your thoughts. We are very fortunate to have our award winning Emporium Eatery and Bar on site too. With a lengthy cocktail list, great selection of beers and an excellent dining menu it really does tick all the boxes for a night out. See you again soon. Regards, Graeme

Such a great place to stay in the perfect location for sightseeing in Napier. Or walking to one of the many good restaurants in the nearby area Our room was nicely furnished and the bed comfortable. It was nice to sit out on the rooftop area and watch the world go by. No problem with any street noise

Hi there, Thanks for staying at the Art Deco Masonic Hotel recently. During our recent refurbishments we installed double glazing throughout the hotel which dramatically reduces noise form the street. And it's great that you could spend some time on our wonderful balcony too. The views up there are amazing aren't they. Regards, Graeme

In keeping with the surrounding buildings, his hotel has a delightful art deco theme, beautifully finished in the public areas. Our room was small but comfortable and well furnished, but suffered from noise penetration from the bar/restaurant below; whilst we couldn't hear the piped music or conversation, every time someone moved a chair, we could hear it scraping across the...

Hi Andrew, Thanks for your constructive review and for mentioning the points about noise fro below. I can see that whilst this wasn't ideal, you understand that it is one of the quirks of an old building and even though the staff are as quiet as they can be, there is a bit of noise that creeps upstairs to the...

Had a lovely king size bedroom that opens up onto a shared terrace with seating overlooking the sea. The room was large with an enamelled bath with original 30's tiles and 30's style taps. The room has modern touches like air conditioning, much needed. Also, a fridge, kettle and tea/coffee making, ironing board and iron. There was a Guest Laundry...

Every thing was good & easy to access & use etc. Facilities, restaurant & pub all very convenient & service quick & friendly. One thing missing: no Sky TV--we look for international news etc & for your calibre it should be there. Excellent position & close to all town activities & of course the art deco wonders. Otherwise very good...

We enjoyed our short stay in the hotel; our room was very 'Art Deco' as we expected. The service was acceptable and adequate but the lack of a safe in the room was surprising. It was comfortable enough but is in need of some refurbishment, keeping it in the Art Deco style, which we found so appealing.

Spent three nights here. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Was nice to have air conditioning, as many hotels in New Zealand do not. A rooftop patio is nice for relaxing and gives a good view of the surrounding area. The hotel has a good restaurant and Irish pub within the building.

This is a lovely place to stay, with great style, good practical facilities (e.g. washing machine and drier for guest use) and beautiful roof gardens to relax in. The superior room we had was very small, and directly above the pub that forms part of the ground floor of the hotel, resulting in noisy nights.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Our balcony is a hidden gem. Whilst most room have direct access to it, all guests can use it whilst staying here. Enjoying views out to the Pacific Ocean it's great for breakfast in the morning, or a quiet drink later on. Thanks again. Regards, Graeme
