Yvonne welcomed us with gentle grace into this most impressive home, explaining its rich history and showing us around the property. Our room was spotless, well equipped and we were made to feel very comfortable. Yvonne...

A lovely view of Hawks Bay. The most accommodating hostess, Yvonne. Truly a one of a kind bed and breakfast! The restoration of this historical building is impeccable. Attention to detail is superior. We highly recommend this beautiful home. You will not be disappointed.

This must be one of the best B&B places that we stayed at in NZ - a beautiful house in a prime spot in Napier and our room (the Venice) was exquisitely furnished.

This is simply excellent accommodation. And Yvonne's hospitality is wonderful. Our room (Venice suite) was spacious, tastefully furnished and very comfortable.

We spent two nights here during February and would have loved to have been able to stay longer. It is an historic old house which survived the 1931 earthquake and has had numerous uses over its long history, including some years as a maternity hospital. It has been lovingly and sympathetically restored to the highest possible standard. The fittings and...

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.
