My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent at Iris and John's B & B. The bedroom and attached bathroom were spacious and the bed very comfortable. The breakfasts provided were spectacular, especially the fresh fruit and homemade muesli. We loved sitting out eating breakfast, enjoying the view from the deck. Iris and John were warm and inviting, and...

Our visit to the Napier/Havelock North area was already going to be short enough based upon our plans in NZ but they were made even shorter when we decided to linger near Tongariro NP to see if we could get in our planned Crossing hike (which we didn't). This meant a very short time in the area and at the...

We only had two nights but what an exceptional two nights. First a bit about the house, Iris's and John's house clearly custom made, everything is of the highest quality and comfort. The bath deserves a special mention. Having a jacuzi bath with glass window and ceiling was absolutely amazing as you can see the stars while having a bath....

John is a great host, Iris was away when we visited. Breakfast was a surprise each morning and always delicious. John is very informative and offers advice on the local restaurants and attractions not to be missed.
