My partner and I stayed at Esk Valley Lodge in December last year and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our hosts, Jes and Eileen, were extremely generous and we enjoyed chatting with them over a glass of their own sauvignon and some bruscetta with their own vine ripened tomatoes. We loved walking around the grounds and our room was lovely. We also dined out both nights in great places suggested by Jes and Eileen and enjoyed breakfasts from their menu in the morning. All in all a great stay and we highly recommend Esk Valley Lodge to others.

A very quiet rustic setting (pick your own fruit)! Very comfortable and close to Napier's great restaurants, or have dinner with the hosts. Jess and Eileen are excellent hosts, local wine in the afternoon.

We have stayed here twice and would recommend it to anyone who wants great accommodation and hospitality. The hosts are very obliging and the breakfasts were generous with the emphasis being on local fresh produce. The setting is conducive to relaxing and enjoying the wonderful scenery and wine of the Hawkes Bay area. We have stayed in many B&B's around the world and this would have to be one of the best in terms of breakfast and the generosity of the hosts.

This accommodation is in beautiful surroundings with extremely hospitable owners. The rooms are beautifully appointed with every convenience a tourist may need - from safe to hairdryer, from tv to internet access.
We had a delicious fully cooked breakfast (from our own menu) in addition to juices, cereals, breads, fresh local fruit with homemade jams and local honey.
Although a little way out of Napier, access was very easy.
Information was sent by Jes well before the visit about attractions and landmarks along the route to Esk Valley and both Eileen and Jes suggested many local restaurants and viewpoints to visit.
A really super stay - highly recommended.

Tucked away from the main road amongst vineyards in a very quiet position, Esk Valley Lodge is a very warm, welcoming, private residence with guest rooms. We had the cosy Riesling room with a large bathroom, and it overlooked the garden from one window, and the vineyards from the other. Jes and Eileen were very helpful, friendly and generous hosts providing their own wine and nibbles before dinner. Eileen's platter comes highly recommended, and the full breakfast is exactly what it says, probably the best in New Zealand. Jes was always keen to direct you to places to visit and things to see, and provided maps (and weather forecasts) to help. Two nights was not enough, hindsight is wonderful!!
Really good value for money, and would highly recommend it.
