Art Deco Masonic Hotel, Napier, New Zealand

Our rating: Medium

Whilst the exterior structure of this hotel remains basically unchanged from when it was first built in 1861, the hotel has undergone a tasteful facelift, restoring many of the features that make it an art deco icon.

There are 42 guest rooms with all the conveniences you would expect of a modern hotel. In addition, its history and art deco architecture add a unique ambience and style. Emporium Eatery and Bar is the latest addition to the hotel, and within its first year of opening became a member of World’s Best Bars.
