The best and most beautiful accommodation in the wider surroundings of Napier. The hotel is marvelous. The people there as well. We couldn't have booked something better. It felt like a small holiday within our holidays :)

This is truly a beautiful old hotel. The garden and the homestead are delightful. However, the price of tarriff has increased since we were there last, about a year ago. The hotel is now heated, but the heat pump is noisy, as it chugs through the night. We opted not to have dinner, as there was a school ball in...
