My partner and I stayed at this B&B recently and couldn't fault them for anything. They thought of everything! A beautiful fairly new, modern, single level house with 3 rooms they rent out, all with different furnishings, but all beautiful. The house is a rectangle with an enclosed deck, barbeque, long lap pool, and spa pool in the middle. We enjoyed a glass of wine with the owners in the evening, took off to dinner (Elephant Hill was yummy and beautiful), and came back to jump in the spa pool and relax while we enjoyed the flat screen on the wall outside with surround sound...wow...I miss it already. Breakfast was lovely, ready at our requested time....scrambled eggs with herbs, fresh squeezed juice, flat white/cappucino, rhubarb, bacon, homemade bread toasted with butter and jam, muesli, cereal, yogurt. Needless to say, we had too many options and could barely eat lunch that day. It's about a 10-15 min drive to the Napier CBD, but we didn't mind. The owners are very helpful with winery and restaurant recommendations even though they have lived in the area less than a year. We only stayed one night, but will definitely come back if we are up that way again.
My whanau and I enjoyed many aspects of our stay here. One being the location of the RSA next door where we dined for lunch which was reasonably priced and delicious. Swimming pool was heated, spa hot but fabulous for tired limbs, games room was superb with the pool table, ice hockey, table tennis, computer and psp. The grounds were extremely well kept and the oranges on the tree at the back sweet and juicy. While an additional bathroom would have been perfect as there were 5 of us in the two bedroom apartment, there is simply no negative comments to add. Staff were fab and friendly, beds comfy and clean, Taradale only minutes down the road for wine supplies, New World in Greenmeadows. Thank you, see you again next year :-)

A fabulous little motel on the outskirts of Napier. Staff were cheery and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. I loved all the vintage touches around the place, with a cool record player here, a set of vintage suitcases there, gave it a real homely feel. Kitchen is well equipped too, complete with free home baked cookies if you get there quick enough!
