We had such a lovely stay at the landing, beautiful rooms, stunning views and excellent hosts!!We would highly recommend this place and would stay again! Could not have asked for any better! Breakfast was great, and we were made to feel very welcome by Jill and Allan. We had a very special first wedding anniversary! Peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

Hello Sarah and Andrew
Thank you for taking the time to do the review.
As you could see we were very pleased that you had chosen to come and spend your first wedding anniversary here at the Landing. Good work Andrew! -and we hope you found the Bayview Suite to be suitably romantic.
A view over the sea is always relaxing -and different to the greenery you are used to.
We would be happy to see you if you can come up this way for a break again.
Regards
Jill and Allan

As step of our wedding anniversary tour , we stayed here for 2 nights. in Bay view room. It's true the sea view from balcony is very nice but the view on the right is also on the Port (the loading docks ), the problem is that the loading dock is "very very" active , and thats become very noisy all night.

Jill was very friendly and helpful, even driving us into town for dinner. The room was clean.
the continental breakfast was nice.
In summarize the only negative point is too much noise all night.

Hello Yves and Dominique
Thank you for writing the review for us.
We were very sorry to learn from the review that the noise from the port had been disturbing to you. Just closing the windows can make a huge difference - I do apologise that we could not make some suggestions to help.
We are glad that you enjoyed your time here in Napier, and
we hope that you enjoyed the rest of your trip -and had a memorable 35th wedding anniversary tour.
Regards
Jill and Allan

Just a fleeting trip this time and The Landing was a welcome oasis at the end of a long drive. We will be back for a more leisurely stay at a later date. Jill is a wonderful hostess who effortlessly creates a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere for guests.

Hello Viv
Thank you for doing a review. It was a fleeting visit -the other guests didn't see you at all! Glad that we had time for a cup of tea when you arrived, and a chat over breakfast. Hope you enjoyed the wine -and next time stay for longer and we can catch up again. Best regards, Jill and Allan

Jill & Allan are the most wonderful hosts. We stayed in the Studio which was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Jill had left a complimentary bottle of wine in the fridge, tea, coffee & biscuits in the kitchen area. The house itself is superb with breathtaking views of the Ocean and surrounding areas, Jill & Allan encourage all guest to share the beautiful lounge and terrace area with themselves which makes guests feel completely relaxed and at home. Jill also offers to drive guests into town at night if they prefer not to walk or drive. Jill's breakfasts are first class, lovely home made muesli, fresh fruit, yoguart, juice or a cooked breakfast. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Hello Val,
Thank you for such a glowing review. We enjoyed meeting you both -and could see you enjoyed your time here in Hawkes Bay. We have had a great time over January with guests mixing and mingling and sharing travel tips and restaurant recommendations. We are lucky to have such a choice of great eating places close by. Breakfasts are made easy too with the wonderful local orchard fruit -very healthy! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. Safe travels. Cheers Jill and Allan

All New Zealanders are outgoing and friendly but Jill and Alan go so out of their way that it is a real pleasure to stay with the . The views are spectacular..Jill does breakfast every morning at what ever time you want and is already ready with a cup of tea at the end of the day., and she even did these weary travelers laundry and turn down service! Our room was very comfortable and nicely appointed and we highly, highly recommend this establishment

Room Tip: There are three rooms. We stayed in the studio on the first floor..it was cooler which was great, n...

Hello folks
Thank you so much for such a prompt review. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and that we did get to meet you.
We always enjoy spending time with guests, so cups of tea are a great part of our day. We don't have set times for breakfasts as we like guests to relax and do things at their own pace -some are on holiday, some on business -so laundry, transport etc are things we can always help out with.
Thanks too for the information on the restaurants and wineries you visited. We are happy to pass those on to other guests -and thanks for the guidebook -we are already making use of it. All the best for the rest of your trip. We'll be thinking of you.
Warm regards,
Jill and Allan

We arrived in Napier towards the end of our holiday in New Zealand and were blown away by this lovely B&B. It is in a fantastic location with wonderful views out to sea. Jill and Allan were very friendly and looked after us well. We only had one night, I wish we could have stayed longer!

Thank you for the review. We were glad you enjoyed your short visit to Napier, and your time here at the Landing. Glad we could share some of our great Hawkes Bay sunshine with you, and that you could make the most of it in the Bayview Suite. Hope the rest of your trip went well. Safe travels.

Our quick mini trip to Napier was perfectly complemented by what started out to be two nights in the bay view suite, but chose to extend our stay for an additional night as it was so pleasant. The room had views to die for and the bed was super large and comfortable. The hosts, Jill and Allan provided a warm and generous welcome and service providing breakfast beyond our expectations and advice on dining and activities in the region, even dropping us down into the city centre for dinner (taxi back NZ$8). Our mini was housed safely in the double garage, which further impressed my husband.

Hello Ngaire
Thanks very much for the review. We enjoyed meeting you both, and were glad that you enjoyed the Bayview Suite and chose to stay the extra night. The great Hawkes Bay weather always helps, and we could see you enjoyed the relaxed shopping, and time at the wineries.
The mini was a great hit with our other guests -garage parking no problem!
we'll look forward to seeing you if you are up this way again.
Warm regards
