We had space, comfort, luxury and the friendliest host you could wish. What a 'find'! Nothing was too much trouble and the surroundings and views from the deck were just wonderful. The bed was comfortable, the lounge area for the sole use of guests was spacious and well appointed, with refreshments topped up regularly. Wish we could have stayed longer... More

So glad you enjoyed your time here. Yes, our large upstairs deck is a wonderful place to sit with a wine in hand and watch the sea in one direction or views over the city in the other! We are spoiled! Best wishes to you both, Catherine More

Our 3 week trip around the North Island included some great accommodation in fantastic locations but none better than our only B&B- Seaview Lodge. Our ensuite room was spacious and very comfortable with a lovely view over the beach and Napier. Over a delicious breakfast Catherine, our host, would give options for places to see, restaurants and vineyards not to... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review ..... and for your lovely comments!

Travelled down to Napier from Auckland, via Rotorua, arriving at this bed & breakfast, tired. This was immediately forgotten on realising that we had booked in to probably, the best B&B in Napier!

As two couples we had the upstairs area to use. The large deck offered great views over Hawkes Bay. Woke up to a great sunrise. Our rooms were very large, comfortable and clean.

After much searching on the internet we settled on Seaview Lodge and we couldn't have been happier. Catherine, the hostess, was so accommodating and had thought of everything.

Catherine was a wonderful hostess, who made our stay very comfortable. We enjoyed the spaciousness and quiet of our room and freedom to move about and enjoy our own living room. The view was amazing. Catherine makes fabulous Croissants, too!! Would highly recommend.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes, even though we are so close to town, due to the elevation of the house, it is peaceful - apart from hearing those waves roll in of course! Glad you enjoyed the croissants too. Regards Catherine More
