  • Robert & Wendy were the most AWESOME hosts ever. They do feel like your uncle and auntie! Both of them are well-traveled and this makes breakfast time very enjoyable as we chat for a couple of hours each morning on topics so varied.

    The en-suite room with private entrance in and out of the house allows us the privacy we want. As winter gets a bit quiet, we were the only guests in the B&B which is equivalent to having exclusive use of the lounge room which now, after tuning up, is as good as being in a theater. The pair of bikes that the B&B has for guests to borrow are tip-top! We enjoyed cycling to the city center every day even in winter. Breakfast is beautifully laid out every morning and I could not get enough of Wendy's homemade museli. It must be in Napier that we were most well fed throughout our trip. We have already recommended Mission B & B on the Avenue to many friends of ours. This is THE B&B to go to when in Napier!
