Lyn & John Parsons made us very welcome in their beautiful old home, which Lyn had enhanced with her creative stained glass, made in her studio built in their beautiful garden. Situated high above the town the Parsonage had a relaxed and welcoming feel and was well placed to visit the interesting town of Napier with its collection of Art...

This is a lovely quirky old 1890,s house, extremely well maintained and comfortable. Hosts John and Lynn are wonderful (if you like dogs you will love Ruby the pug!!) friendly, adorable and well behaved. Grounds on the property are great but on steep hillside. If you are faint of heart, and it is raining hard and dark, the steep driveway...

Thank you so much to Lynne and John! My husband and I chose The Parsonage as accomodation for our wedding and couldn't have asked for a better setting or hosts. Right from the booking Lynne shared in the excitement of the weekend to come, and John was fantastic serving up a superb breakfast to calm my nerves on the morning...

John and Lynn are such welcoming friendly and generous hosts that it felt like we had been friends for ages. The house is full of charming artistic touches, the new laid egg for breakfast was a treat. Thank you both.

Excellent B+B with welcoming hosts. Lovely old house with lots of arts and crafts (stained glass etc.) created by the owners. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere and guests made very welcome. Definitely recommended. Approx 10-15 mins walk into centre of Napier, ten minutes to the sea front pool and spa.
