“Pretty Hotel with a couple of issues”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2004

We enjoyed staying in this beautiful hotel. It has some issues though.
The front desk is only staffed from 7 am to 7 pm, there are no bellmen, and some of the rooms can hear the bar downstairs a little too well. A beautiful example of Art Deco architecture in a nice location. Better yet - visit Chambers for dinner instead.

Very disappointed with room - supposed to be boutique hotel but room was sparse and windows overlooked very seedy backs of other properties.
Was not told we would have to reserve a table for dinner and would not give us a table. Reception not manned most of time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Winner of the Art Deco Supreme Award. The owners of Napier's County Hotel wished to combine the qualities and ambience of some of the finest hotels in the world. They have achieved this by incorporating fine service, fine dining and luxurious accommodation in line with 1930's Art Deco characteristics of Napier. The County Hotel is situated in the centre of Napier which is considered to be the 'Art Deco Capital of the South Pacific' and has captivated the emotions and senses of countless admirers. Originally built for the Hawke's Bay County Council in 1909, The County Hotel is one of only two significant buildings to have survived the massive 1931 earthquake. Faithfully refurbished as a boutique hotel, the County Hotel now stands as Napier's premier Hotel. The hotel is home to an extremely popular, multi award winning Wine Street Restaurant, the superb Churchill's Champagne Lounge, an intimate library, well-appointed function areas, conference facilities and eighteen luxurious guest rooms and offer a variety of accommodation packages. Come and enjoy this architectural masterpiece with its atmosphere of conventional luxury and allow yourself to be pampered by the attentive service of our devoted staff. ... more   less
