We discovered this B&B through the i centre in Napier, and really enjoyed our stay. They were really roomy bedrooms, comfy, clean and well stocked ensuites. My mother who is in a wheelchair found it good as far as the bathroom facilities went. Her kingsize bed was very comfortable but it was quite low and a little difficult for her to get out of. The lift going up to the dining room was excellent, and we were really well looked after by our hosts, who provided beautiful breakfasts, and helped us with any local information we needed. The position high on hospital hill was great. Would definately recommend this place and would love to stay again in beautiful Napier.

We had the very good fortune to choose to stay with Murray and Jacquie at Helm Crag for the 2012 Art Deco Festival. Not only were they fantastic hosts but also gave us great tips for our stay in the rest of NZ. Looking forward to the 2013 festival! Judith and Andrew, Brunswick, Victoria, Australia

Situated on a steep hill! overlooking Napier with gorgeous views, house is set back from the main road behind houses facing the main road, quiet location, hosts were very welcoming and friendly, starting our stay with a welcome cuppa and chat. Room very spacious and huge comfortable bed, lovely modern bathroom (wetroom), breakfast was very nice. Napier is a pretty art deco town, well worth a visit, had dinner at 3 Doors Down, very nice food and catered very well with two fussy eaters! Would definatley recommend both the B&B and the Restaurant.

We stayed 2 nights in Helm Crag whilst touring New Zealand's North Island, and enjoyed the quiet location in a charming neighbourhood, high above the centre of Napier. It is situated on quite a steep hill - not easy to walk down to or back up from the town centre, but near the Botanic Gardens and only short car or taxi ride to the restaurants and other attractions of Napier.
Murray and Jacquie were charming hosts, and very knowledgeable about local attractions, restaurants and Hawkes Bay vineyards.
We arrived to a welcoming glass of NZ wine, and a chance to talk to Jacquie about our sightseeing plans.
We chose to stay in the Queen Room, which was comfortable and had the advantage of being like a small suite, with separate bathroom and toilet, so private but giving us a little more space.
Breakfast was very good, and again gave us an opportunity to talk to Murray and Jacquie about our proposed activities.
Helm Crag was good value for money and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, friendly and comfortable accomodation in this lovely city.
