This property is 113 years old and very well maintained. Excellent service and a joy to visit. My wife suggested it may be about time the bed mattress was renewed.

Great location, close to the CBD. Very well appointed room and great decor throughout the hotel matching Napier's art deco theme. Loved the complimentary port in the library, would buy a bottle if it was for sale. Would definitely consider staying here again next time we're in Napier. Dean & Michelle

The staff were very responsive to issues and our stay most enjoyable. One day I will stay in a hotel that makes it clear that my rubbish can easily be discarded in a recycling fashion - paper, plastic separate..
