    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at The County Hotel in Napier. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the room was wonderful. Churchill's Bar was inviting and the barman excellent; knowledgable about wines and the area's history and attractions. The hotel restaurant offered superb food, beverages and service. The library with complimentary port available was a great place to end the day. We would highly recommend this hotel for its ambience and service to anyone needing a break away.

    Very good

    It's art deco design and decadent feel. Hayley's help and warmth the following morning.

    We were utterly misled at every stage over the availability of dinner. The booking, the hotel information and even the staff informed us that we could eat dinner in the hotel. Unfortunately nobody seemed to know that the restaurant wasn't open on a Tuesday night. It was torrential rain outside, so our 'Dinner' turned out to be a modest microwaved one course 'meal' chosen from a tiny selection in the bar, sat on a bar stool, with no ambience whatsoever. We went to bed hungry after a long day's journey. Just not good enough. Sorry.

    Very good

    The room was very well laid and and comfortable.

    The cooked breakfast was cold. My daughter was looking forward to the pancakes (she rarely gets them) and for $18 was served two small ones. The French toast wasn't very good. Also $18. All in all a poor breakfast from a comfortable and wonderful hotel.

    My wife and I liked everything about the hotel. The staff were brilliant, very helpful and friendly, the food was good, the atmosphere outstanding and the fit out and decoration authentic. The hotel also has a library full of interesting books on old and new New Zealand. A help yourself drink of Port went down well. The location of the hotel was perfect for walking the City.

    Loved everything about The County. The reception staff member actually personally showed us to our room instead of giving us directions. The mini bar was well stocked (except for ice). Cannot fault it.

    This is a very charming hotel, conveniently located in centre of Napier. It has the advantages of a small hotel, it is efficiently run, the staff are uniformly friendly, and the food is excellent. I have stayed in several colonial-era hotels - a type that I like - and this is a very fine example. Highly recommended, and good value for money.

    No complaints at all. The lighting in the room could be a bit better for reading.

    Staff weer wonderful, from helping us unload the car, through facilitating a late meal in the excellent restaurant and setting us up with internet connections. The location is brilliant, a short walk to the seashore and the main town centre.
