This B&B, it's location and hosts Jess and Eileen were nothing less than spectacular. Boy, does Jess (and Eileen) prepare a full and delicious breakfast as you like it plus lots more goodies. And then there is the 5 PM Meet the Guests - Wine and Cheese on Patio. Yes, the wine is from their personal vineyards. The property is...

Perfectly situated for exploring Napier whilst being out in the peace and quiet of the country. Jes and Eileen are perfect hosts, welcoming and friendly whilst leaving you to do your own thing. The food and wine were delicious, the lodging comfortable and homely. We have already booked a return trip.

We very much enjoyed our stay with Jes and Eileen. We enjoyed the tranquility, beauty, and privacy of the lodge and we enjoyed getting to know our hosts. This was our third experience with what we came to call the B&B&D: bed and breakfast and dinner. Because we found driving on the left side of the road challenging, we had...

Lovely room with balcony overlooking gardens and vineyard. Everything we needed, with good wifi and ample breakfast. Nice quiet location. Owners were happy to host a welcome drink with wine from their own vines, nicely convivial. One suggestion for improvement: the approach to the house itself is a bit scruffy and we worried momentarily whether we'd made a mistake, especially...

Spent 3 days at Eileen's and Jes' lovely country house and enjoyed their hospitality. I own a bed and breakfast and really appreciate other professional innkeepers. These two do it really effortlessly and well. They have a comfortable, older home in a small vineyard, a short distance off the main highway yet just far enough away. We stayed in the...

This B&B is situated off the main road in the middle of vineyards and surrounded by orchards, flowers and lawns. We stayed in the Sauvignon Suite which had a balcony overlooking the vineyard. This room was big enough to sleep a family of 3 as it had a twin bed in the tv room. The hosts were very friendly and...

Our stay in Esk Valley Lodge was excellent. Our room was beautiful, with views down the garden towards the vineyard at the end. The bed, lounge and bathroom facilities were all top notch.

We recently stayed with Jes and Eileen at their Esk Valley Lodge. We received a warm greeting by both of them and immediately felt at home. The lodge has a great living room downstairs that overlooks a beautiful garden and vineyard. They offered us wine every evening with a lovely conversation. Breakfast in the morning was consisted of fresh fruit,...

Thank you for your kind words and we are pleased you enjoyed your meals. We hope you were not too sore after your cycle trip around the vineyards and that you enjoyed the good Hawkes Bay wines and that the rest of your honeymoon went fantastically!
