119 on Georges Bed & Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2013

Our stay as guests of Wendy and Pete at their boutique bed & breakfast known as '119 ongeorges,' was the memorable reservation of our travels through New Zealand. Not only was the accommodate inviting, spacious, very comfortable - all that we could ask for; it was the hosts that made the stay so special. The evening wine and appetizers along with the lively and informative conversation about New Zealand and Napier in particular, made for a richer experience than any travel guide could have provided. Pete's hot breakfast special is not to be missed; abundant and prepared to perfection. Wendy and Pete genuinely love people and will do everything they can to ensure your stay is tops. We only wish NZ were not so far away because we would be regular guests, given the opportunity!

Room Tip: There are only two rooms and both are lovely.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and we too thoroughly enjoyed the times we shared over a glass of wine at the end of the day, hearing of your travel experiences and getting to know you. Warmest wishes to you both.

I'll admit, I was a little leery of staying some place that didn't have at least 4 stars on Trip Advisor. In fact, when I booked, it didn't have *any* reviews. However, when I looked the place up, it was clear that they just got started, so I decided to take a chance.

We were looking for a place in Hawke's Bay to stay on our 16 day New Zealand roadtrip. Location didn't seem all that great, but when I looked at the town, Napier is pretty small and it was a flat walk to the downtown area - maybe 20 minutes, so I decided it wasn't a deal breaker. It was reasonably priced (includes a HUGE breakfast) and had parking, Internet, a place to do laundry, etc so the price was a good value.

The place is quiet, charming and comfortable. The room and bathroom were quite large and very clean. The room lacks air conditioning, but Napier was having really pleasant weather, so we slept with the windows open and it was quite comfortable.

The real reason to stay here ? Your hosts, Pete & Wendy! They were really great. First, before I arrived, they emailed once they got the reservation, just being proactive. Then, as I wanted something couriered ahead, I contacted them and they took care of it without problem. Once we arrived, they made things super easy for us and we enjoyed some wine and conversation just hanging out of the back patio! It was really great to just hang out with real Kiwis and chat.

All in all, we are so glad we stayed here! Though Pete & Wendy just opened the B&B, Pete is an experienced hospitality industry veteran. They have a lovely home and are really lovely people. Hopefully, by the time more people read this review, there will be many people echoing our experience, so I won't quite feel like a shill, but honestly, it was a great stay and I'd highly recommend it.

Pro tip: If I were staying multiple nights, I'd probably have them cook us dinner at least one night. They are foodies and I think dinner with them would have been awesome (next time!) Pete also catches whitebait in season, so if you want to taste a real true New Zealand original, book a dinner with them and ask for them to make you some Whitebait fritters (Mid august to the end of November, if I recall correctly.)

Hi Dave, It has been a few months now since you stayed here at 119 on georges in Napier, New Zealand and thank you for taking a chance on a B and B which had no previous reviews!!! We have had a great 12 months since we started and have had a fabulous time meeting folk from all around the globe, sharing many hours over a good Hawke's Bay wine, their travel experiences and many laughs. I am sure a number of our bookings have come from your review. !!!!! I trust 2013 has been good to you and Laura and our very best of wishes for the coming year.

Lovely B&B a few minutes drive from the centre of Napier.
Peter and Wendy were great hosts welcoming us with a glass of wine and many helpful suggestions for our time in Napier. The breakfast was great too!

If we could give it two thumbs up we would! Wendy and Pete are fabulous hosts and they have designed a wonderful, relaxing place to get away to for a weekend or more. The room was comfortable, clean & new, the pool was great, the complementary wine and wifi was a huge bonus, and we would recommend having dinner there one night as it makes it that much easier to unwind rather than having to find a place to eat. Wendy & Pete had great recommendations about what to do in town and the best wineries to visit. Our little daughter loved it too and they made us feel so welcomed like a part of their extended family. Highly recommended!
