This hotel is in an awesome location. It has a great restaurant and has a lovely old fashion feel. The hotel would rate a 5 if the rooms were better. They are clean and comfortable but the bath is very difficult to get in and out of. If you are young, no problem; However, if you have ANY mobility problems...

Super located hotel with a real difference as it is like stepping back in time. All rooms of a high standard and decorated in the Ary Deco style. We were located close to the coast and enjoyed the shops, restaurants and cafes close by. We even went out for an early morning run down the coastal path and bike way...

We stayed in one of the apartments and wasn't ot grand. It really is spectacular. We walked around the hotel to explore the detail and restoration work done. The hotel keeper saw us doing this and took the time to tell us of all the restoration work he has done and the detail furnishings the owner has accumulated. Well done!...

We stayed in an appartment, which was great, we felt like we were at home. We tried to extend our stay, but the Hotel was fully booked. The Food and Service in the Restaurant was good, but I didn't like the"Disco Music" and the acoustics were quite loud.

Hi Ian A, Thank you for staying here again. Our Art Deco Suite certainly is a great room and faces out to our balcony with views over to the Pacific Ocean. Emporium Eatery and Bar is our award winning restaurant and the cocktail list is second to none in Hawke's Bay. Thanks again. Regards, Graeme

Beautiful building with elegant and thoughtful detail including music and film reels of the era which added to the atmosphere. We only had drinks at the bar as the service was very slow and we weren't confident in the staff who appeared to be unable to cope, particularly in bar service, and seemed rather distracted. Having said that, the food...

We stayed at the Masonic over New Years and loved it. The place has been refurbished to a high standard and the room very comfortable. Despite been located in a busy spot it was very quiet and the restaurant and bar are excellent. Love to stay there again.

just because there is a queue there is no need to rush check-in - the front desk check-in was an unusual experience caused because there was lack of information provided about parking while checking in and guests were parking in a no-zone, checking with front desk and then bringing bags in - more that 3 couples experienced this confusion on...
