The owners of Napier's County Hotel wished to amalgamate the qualities and ambience pertaining to some of the finest hotels in the world.

They have achieved this by incorporating fine service, fine dining and luxurious accommodations in fitting with the 1930's Art Deco characteristics of Napier. In doing so the owners and staff have created a unique boutique hotel experience whilst retaining affordability and friendly charm.

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 in 1990 and 2002, the County Hotel now stands as Napier's flagship Hotel, a boutique enterprise of exquisite character, distinction and charm. The hotel is home to an extremely popular, multi award winning Chambers Restaurant, the superb Churchill's Champagne & Snug bar, an intimate library, well-appointed function areas and eighteen luxurious rooms.

The County Hotel has set the benchmark for quality and prides itself on service, guest facilities, cuisine and pristine accommodations. Come and enjoy this magnificent architectural masterpiece with its splendid atmosphere of conventional luxury and allow yourself to be pampered by the attentive service of our entirely devoted staff.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   This is a lovely old hotel, beautifully preserved and maintained. Loved the ambience and decor, the library and free Port in the evenings. The staff went above and beyond, being helpful with great advice and suggestions. Location is great, allowing excellent access to the downtown facilities. The only down side was that our room could not get warm - the heater was over a large ledge, which blocked heating, so we could never quite get warm. Definitely return.

Review:   Love the County.cosy old fashioned comfort and welcome with some charming surprises. i.e. a little plate of fresh cupcakes delivered to your door each morning. A weather report and page from the local newspaper on this day 80 years ago slipped under your door. A sunny greeting at reception and from all staff and a well stocked intimate bar, and even complimentary port in the little library. We can't wait to return.

Review:   Old world charm Located in the Art Deco precinct, this lovely boutique hotel exudes old world charm and elegance. The decor is just gorgeous and the staff are really friendly and welcoming. There are lots of nice little touches too - apples, kiwi fruit, port and lemon water. All the rooms are named after birds - we stayed in the Mockie which had a spacious bathroom with a spa bath.

Review:   Lovely room in well maintained art deco building only 2 minutes walk from the main seaside prominade. The staff are all very friendly and responsive. Some interesting things. The rooms have names now numbers. Clues to tge buildings histpry are around including the large vaults. The hotel has a delightful library carefully furnished to take you back to the thirties. There is also complimentary port available. The only issue was the toaster at breakfast which was not fast enough to handle the quantity of guests.
