Yvonne went beyond the call of duty by washing our filthy tramping gear. That was a bonus on top of the excellent service and amenities she provided - nothing was a problem and by the end...

We stayed here for 2 nights and couldn't have been better cared for by Yvonne. The sheer pride and pleasure she takes in caring for her guests and telling us about the house, its history and Napier was wonderful. The Venice suite which we had was so comfortable and the icing on the cake were the chocolates and champagne in...

As an Aucklander I visited Napier for the first time and found McHardy Lodge a real delight. Loved the history of the place and the immaculate presentation of the Lodge. Tasty breakfasts each morning served outside on the terrace or at the kitchen table, and attention to detail. This is a haven for New Zealanders and internationals!

If you are coming to Napier for the Art-Deco don't miss a stay here. You are transported back in time as if it was in the 30's .....without any compromise to todays luxuries. The house is absolutely stunning where almost every room has a story to it. Breakfast is abundant and very high quality.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
5* McHardy Lodge is a beautifully restored 1896 residence situated in a quiet cul de sac on exclusive Napier Hill, close to all the attractions of Art Deco Napier and the wineries, golf and gannet colony of Cape Kidnappers and the award winning dining experiences of Hawkes Bay. The Lodge has a wealth of rich native Kauri timber and antique furnishings. The suites are dressed with fine furnishings and linens, with luxurious beds to sink into and relax. Spacious bathrooms feature claw foot or deep tub baths and large showers, making them the ideal place to relax and unwind. Relaxation is not confined to your suite. After a gourmet breakfast overlooking the Ocean you can lounge around the pool or on one of the extensive verandahs - the views of the blue Pacific Ocean and mountain ranges in the distance will beguile you. Enjoy a game on our full size billiards table in the billiard room, or snuggle up in the library in front of the fire. Whether it is merely a break from life’s pressures, a special holiday, a celebration you want to make so much more special, or you are planning the ideal start to married life together – we will ensure you have an experience you will treasure. ... more   less
