We stayed 2 nights in the room at the back of the house. Room and en suite were immaculate, with a very nice little veranda to sit out on and have a pre-dinner drink in the evening. Maybe not the best of views, but we were very happy with it.
Judy was very friendly and served a fabulous breakfast with an amazing array of fruit and pastries.
Great location within easy walking distance of town centre and large choice of restaurants. It's true that you can't park outside the property during the day, but that didn't present a problem. If you're planning to leave the car during restricted hours, it's a simple matter of using the car park opposite which doesn't cost much.
Napier is a lovely little town with unique architecture and character, even if you're not necessarily an Art Deco fan. Wine tasting tour around Hastings is a great way to spend an afternoon.
