This was an outstanding experience and the highlight of our supposed fishing trip to the North Island!!!! Robert and Wendy are incredible hosts and the hospitality was more than generous. Great location for visiting vineyards, exploring the wonderful countryside and Napier itself. It is very hard to add to the previous reviews, as it has pretty much already been said!!...

My wife and I stayed at the Mission B and B for 2 nights whilst on a 6 week trip to New Zealand. We were there in early April. Although the B and B is out of town, it is only a short trip by car into Napier, and a short walk to Mission winery- the oldest in NZ. We...

The rooms are perfectly reasonable, the location is convenient for several of the hawke's bay wineries but there are two real reasons to stay here: Robert and Wendy. They couldn't do enough for us, from fabulous breakfasts to booking restaurants and massages to taking us to pick up fish and chips for our dinner. A must do is "fivesies": a...

Wendy & I appreciate the kind sentiments and thank you for taking time to review your stay with us. Our pleasure having such a gracious couple 'in home'. You certainly did a LOT in 3 days!

Robert and Wendy were great hosts! They made us (and particularly our 5 year old daughter) feel totally welcome. If your expectations of a B&B are the following you are in the right place: - Beds = Very comfortable - Breakfast = Different and great each day...not just toast and coffee...but a lovingly prepared full-breakfast - Clean = The place...

What gracious hosts are the husband and wife team of Robert Simon and Wendy! They received a friend/colleague and I into their lovely home as if we were family. We were overwhelmed by their kindness and enjoyed much pampering! Do not miss "fivesies", a time of laughter and great conversation with delicious cheeses, nibbles and "degustation" of the best wines...

What can I add to the most recent reviews which rather say it all?! I told Robert Simon and Wendy that, in our extensive travels, their B & B was the best we'd ever stayed at.

We stayed with Robert and Wendy, who are the most friendly and delightful couple who run this B+B about a 15 minute drive outside of downtown Napier. 'Fivesies' are served everyday (wine and cheese at 5pm!). I felt like I was staying at a cozy auntie and uncle's house. The guests are a bit older - ie. 40s and up,...
