“Beautiful surroundings and very nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

"If you're looking for somewhere quiet to stay in the vicinity of Napier then you will do no better than to stay at the Grandvue Countrystay. This is located at 2596 State Highway 50. Set in beautiful surroundings with vineyards in the background the accommodation is of superior quality, but the main attraction is meeting Dianne and Keith Taylor who will make you feel most warmly at home. Moreover Dianne is a very good cook and you will enjoy the fare in an atmosphere which will leave you with lasting memories. Stopping off at the Grandvue Countrystay is well worth the effort."

In 2007 my wife and I searched for a quiet place where we could celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary. Our search took us to Grandvue Country Stay just out from Hastings. What a find that was. In the 5 years since then we have visited those grand, friendly hosts Dianne and Keith at “Grandvue” on 12 occasions and have loved every minute of it. The truly great hospitality one receives, the situation of the comfortable hilltop home with the wonderful views across the vineyards to the Havelock North hills and the occasional dip in the pool cause one to really look forward to the next visit. For the Hawkes Bay experience “Grandvue” is within easy reach of Napier, Hastings, Havelock North and all the vineyard attractions you could wish for.

We stayed in Grandvue Country stay for 3 nights and it has been very nice and comfortable.
Our friends,who llive in Napier, were in hospital,waiting untill their baby got born so it was all very exciting and Dianne and Keith,the lovely hosts, were very compasionate and homely sweet.
The area is beautiful,this homestay is in the middle of the vineyards,perfect if you love winetastings!
We were lucky the weather was nice one day so we could swim in the pool and enjoy the beautiful garden.
One thing we were wondering is what happened with the breakfast?We had both expected (as written in the previous reviews)a cooked breakfast.We both love bacon and eggs and we felt unpolite to ask why we did not get cooked breakfast,only cereals and toasts and jam and honey..(Especially when we book B&B s for the breakfast this was a bit of a bummer.)
Except for the breakfast,everything else was perfect!Very spacious rooms with clean bathroom en yummie lemons from the garden.

This is a lovely option for those touring Hawkes Bay. Set on a hilltop with views forever over the neighboring vineyards, this B&B captures the essence of the Hawkes Bay landscape. The drive up the long tree-lined drive puts you in the mood to relax. Dianne and Keith are gracious, interested and professional hosts, having been in the business for many years. The rooms are lovely and every detail has been thought through. The gardens are beautiful and it's hard to leave the home and get going in the morning, particularly after the yummy breakfasts.

Room Tip: one ensuite, one shared bathroom - room with shared bath has a prettier view over the garden, but en...

We stayed in the ensuite room at Grandvue for one night, and it was certainly a "country stay." The house is located up a hill at the end of a long driveway off highway 50, which is not the main road.

The views from the property were superb, and it was a delight on such a hot day to dip into Dianne and Keith's outdoor pool. Like the other reviewer, we too enjoyed our egg and bacon breakfast on the patio.

Our only complaint was the lack of wireless internet, so we could not use our iPad. We suggested to our hosts that a wireless router might be a good investment!

This B&B would be a good base for touring the Hawkes Bay wine country, or a great stopover on the drive down from Rotorua to Wellington.

The name "Grandvue" hardly tells you how gorgeous it is here: mountains just behind you, the ocean out front, and rose gardens, a pool and vinyards in every other direction. Plus Dianne and Keith are truly gracious hosts, including dinner in your stay if you wish. Our room was beautifully appointed, even with homemade chocolates on the nightstand. Breakfast for a king: eggs, bacon, homemade breads and jams, served on the deck with the grand view! Our room shared a bath with the owners, but we had no problem with that. Another room was ensuite. It was enjoyable to have lovely conversations with the owners and the Scottish couple also visiting. We walked in their gardens and wished it has been warm enough to swim in their pool. Highly recommend!
