Reviewed 24 December 2010

We stayed here for 2 days in December and really loved it.

We had the room up at the top of the house which gives you fantastic views over the bay and has a tonne of space.

The house is beautiful and is in a great location - you can walk back to Napier and, equally, walk around to Ahuriri where we ate in some great places (including Provodore) recommended to us by Jill.

We really enjoyed meeting Jill and Allan. They made us feel right at home and are really great in making you feel that you can make use of the house. We found their advice on where to visit and where to eat was spot on and we really enjoyed breakfasts chatting to Jill while sitting out on the balcony looking at the bay.

This is the only place I'd think about staying if I was heading back to Napier. It's as simple as that :-)

We spent 2 nights in Napier and received a charming and friendly welcome, feeling more like house guests than paying customers. Nothing was too much trouble and breakfasts were memorable, just ask for whatever you fancy and Jill serves it up. Fantastic views and a real find. Deserves it's top spot for the welcome alone!

An excellent location for watching the sun set and not too far from town, the wineriers or the airport. We only stayed on night, but Jill met us, suggested things to do in Napier and grab a byte to eat. She also gave us access to the front room and told us about whale sightings that occasionally happen there. Where it got too dark to sse, There were a number of DVDs available to watch which we took advantage of. The next morining we we met with a nich breakfasts and suggestions for vineyards we couod squeez in pior to our flght out of Napir.

On arrival Jill made us very welcome with tea and home made fare served on the balcony as she chatted and got to know us. The house has fantastic views over Hawkes Bay. We stayed in the Bayview Room which was beautifully appointed with a separate dressing area and huge bathroom and a very comfortable bed and a balcony overlooking the bay. Our friends stayed in the Look Out room which was also very comfortable. There was a complimentary bottle of local wine in both our fridges which was delicious. Jill's enthusiasm for her home and the local area is infectious. In the morning Jill came running up the stairs to tell us that there was a pod of Orcas in the bay and we were lucky enough to have an excellent breakfast while watching them play and hunt , one of the highlights of our month long holiday in NZ. Our biggest regret is that we only had one night to sample Jill and Allens wonderful hospitality. A must stay for our next visit to NZ. The room was the best of the many during our month long trip.

Superb, for accommodation and company. After a days travelling we were so grateful to accept our hosts offer to have them cook dinner for us (fresh, locally-sourced ingredients). If only we could have stayed longer, but we will return - no doubts about that!

Jill was the greatest hostess, very helpful with suggestions for places to visit and eat, She offered to upgrade us but the courtyard room was perfect for us. We were going to stay only one night but decided to stay a second as everything was so great. Jill also did a load of washing for us which was much appreciated after travelling for eigh days. We didn't get to meet Allan as his return was delayed by bad weather but Jill did a fantastic job of looking after us. The house is great and the views from the balcony just fantastic. A great place to stay and unwind, would love to pay a return visit.

Jill and Allan were the perfect hosts. They assisted with some personal requests that made our 27th wedding anniversary a very memorable stay at The Landing Napier. The Bayview Suite was simply stunning. Jill's homemade jams and peanut butter were fabulous. A spectacular and roomy B&B.
