The Manor on Parade is a beautifully decorated historic house located "on the beach" and within a 10 minute walk of the art deco downtown of Napier. We had reserved the ensuite room which is enormous, very well appointed and looks out over the beach. While visiting one of the thermal areas earlier that day, my wife had fallen and muddied her favourite jeans and shirt and asked Judy our host if there was a laundry on site or nearby - Judy agreed to wash them herself which to us indicates the care she has for her guests and their comfort (we were prepared to go to a laundry nearby).
The "continental" breakfast was huge with a great variety of juices, fruit, coffee, teas, jams and marmelades, breads, pastries, joghurts, all served in a beautiful room in the front of the house.
This was one of the best B&Bs we stayed at in New Zealand.
