“Great location & characterful house”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

Very comfortable B & B with delicious fresh fruit/yoghurt/muesli/croissant breakfast and friendly, helpful host. The location is great - we had a room with sea views, and it was very handy being able to walk straight down into town or for a walk along the sea front.

We just stayed one night en route to Wellington. The house is just beautiful with lovely original features. Catherine, the owner and hostess, was charming and helpful and provided a lovely breakfast on the verandah. We ate that evening at Kilim, an excellent Turkish restaurant where you can take your own wine at no extra charge. We swam opposite the b&b in a lovely outdoor pool and took the reasonably priced explorer Deco bus tour. Highly recommended. Peggy and Alison

We had a wonderful time in this B&B. Catherine was extremely welcoming and even though we were several hours early we were able to check in and get into our room.

The location is superb - only a short walk to the Art Deco capital of the Southern Hemisphere.

The rooms are extremely comfortable and the surrounding exquisite. Our only regret was that we were only staying one night.

Catherine was a very nice and good host. We had a great time in Napier and the Seaview Lodge was one of the reason for our good memories about Napier. The Room was very nice and beautiful decorated. The spacious living room we could also use with other guests was also very nice.
The view from our room was great. Breakfast was also excellent and we were a little bit sad that we could only stay for one night but we had not enough time.
Thank you Catherine for the beautiful and memorable stay. We would stay at your lodge again if we would visit Napier again.

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast! Catherine is an incredibly friendly and genuine host!
I had never stayed in a B &B but I will definitely be staying at Seaview Lodge again!
Catherine went out of her way to make my arrival easy and wonderful! She has thought of everything to make her guests feel pampered in her lodge. The woodfire keeps the main floor very toasty warm. The room is elegant and the heavy duvet and bedding (and electric blanket) make it absolutely heavenly!!! The bedrooms are very clean and tranquil. the large room with view out towards pines and ocean would be my first choice and I would request it specifically next time. I was in a smaller room facing the city but it was very nice too. You just feel so pampered and cocooned at the SeeView Lodge. Breakfast was delicious! Catherine is truly the best!!! My sincere thanks to her for starting off my visit to Napier in such a welcoming and wonderful way! Location is fabulous- so close to the ocean spa, marine parade, downtown shopping-and for me close to NGHS! A beautiful walk up the hill!! I loved it!! Thank you for being so kind Catherine!

Room Tip: I would specifically request the large room with window facing the pines/ocean. (as seen on website)

Wow what a fabulous place and host. Catherine was such a wonderful host. The views from the house are incredible, even with the new hotel below it. IT was just a short walk down to the Marine Parade. Catherine was an extremely gracious host, her suggestions on the Art Deco walk, shops and restaurants was perfect. Her suggestion for the sports shop was great, I found a really cool bike jersey there. We especially enjoyed her suggestion for the wine tour. Vince's "World of Wine", he was such a great host. (more about him and he tour on another review) Catherine's breakfast was just enough to fill you up, especially the croissants. As with the other B&B's we stayed at along our NZ journey we were the only ones there, we had the entire house to ourselves! Catherine started the fire prior to our arrival and allowed me to tend it to our liking, spectacular. We fell in love with this city, I could see us living there one day.

It was great to meet you both and thank you so much for your lovely review. I am so pleased you found a great cycling jersey! Some guests like for me to tend the fire others like to do it themselves-very happy either way!. Hope you do indeed get back to Hawkes Bay.

Catherine was extremely helpful even before we arrived, making restaurant bookings at her suggestion during the busy Art Deco festival.
This is a great location - just a few steps down to the Marine Parade and a short walk to the main streets. Delightful breakfasts served on sunny balcony with sea views. Large, comfortable guest lounge with TV and an information book and complimentary tea and coffee.
Next time we are in Napier we will be staying here!
