...was just as wonderful as it was two years ago. Every detail is looked after and all you have to do is relax and enjoy the beautiful gardens and pond, the hot tub under the starts, and John's amazing breakfasts. The communal kitchen and lounge building is a great place to curl up on a rainy afternoon. St Andrews Escape...

Our second visit in a year, this time with family from Denmark - and no less impressive than last year. We love this secluded treasure in the Hawkes Bay Area. A place to relax and enjoy the real pleasures in life. We will be back!

Stayed for four nights during Napier Art Deco Festival. Very comfortable and clean accommodation in relaxing setting. Conveniently placed for Havelock North, Hastings and Napier if you want to go out (will need a car) but quite secluded and private. Very friendly and helpful host.

We were blown away by the beautiful gardens and grounds when we arrived and so thrilled with our lovely Pacifica room. We stayed in February for 3 nights over a long weekend and I was so pleased we were able to get this reservation. Breakfasts were a revelation too with John preparing freshly baked bread, pastries, and an amazing fresh...

My partner and I stayed here over Waitangi weekend in the self contained Te Whare room. The place was immaculate, comfortable and everything we could possibly need was thought of and provided for. The grounds are equally as immaculate with great facilities including outdoor bath tub and spa pool as well as a beautiful pond and gardens. Although we were...

Last year, we visited for three nights and were so delighted that we came back for a week this time. It was every bit as good as we had remembered. There are so many magical touches to staying here, whether wandering through the orchards, watching the sun set across the river or simply relaxing in the stillness and calm of...

My son and I stayed at St Andrews Escape as part of a three day self-guided cycle trip arranged by Napier-based Takaro Trails. What a special place. Just out of town, this modern, beautifully styled, up-market B&B made us so welcome we didn't want to leave. Peaceful and set in an orchard and lovely gardens, with views to the lake...
