We had an exquisite stay at the Landing.
My family and I decided to stop over in Napier on our trip from Rotorua down to Wellington and it was simply one of the best decisions we made on the holiday.
We were welcomed to the Landing by Jill armed with tea and biscuits and a briefing about Napier the town as well as the restaurants around for our enjoyment. She is definitely the best concierge we came across in New Zealand, armed with an arsenal of knowledge about what to do and see. Napier itself is a lovely town and I just wish we had more time to wander the streets and peruse the little stores.
The BnB itself is beautifully located. The Bayview suite where my parents stayed had an outstanding view overlooking the ocean as well as an en suite bathroom. My sister and I shared the Lookout Room and we could not have been happier. The pictures certainly do not do this lovely house any justice. We were lucky enough to be driving through and had a vehicle at our disposal so getting to and from the BnB was not a hassle for us. However, it is situated a little way away from the town and up a couple of steep hills so walking isn't always advisable.
The rooms were modern, neat and tidy, just like staying at a fancy friend's house. Jill, as the ideal host, provided us with tea and the most divine biscuits upon our arrival but her real accomplishment was breakfast in the morning full of fresh fruit and home-made peanut butter which made leaving very difficult! The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms cosy.
I simply cannot say a bad thing about our stay in Napier except that maybe it was a little too short! A must do stop-over in the Northern Island!
Oh and Jill and her husband were lovely enough to book dinner on Christmas Eve for at the most divine restaurant called Milk and Honey, definitely worth a visit!
