We have nothing but warm memories of our stay at the Mission B&B. Robert and Wendy were delightful and charming hosts and their B&B is beautiful and very comfortable. We were treated to a first night wine and cheese happy hour in their beautiful garden. So relaxing! That night we ate at the Mission Winery Restaurant, Robert made the reservation...

We stayed here over Easter with 2 other couples. What a fantastic place. Clean, tidy, comfortable, food was amazing and so were the hosts.

Staying at B n'B can be a bit hit and miss. Not here. The location, the cleanliness, the space, the friendliness, warmth and hospitality of Simon and Wendy made for a wonderful weekend. The proximity to the stunning Mission Estate means this has to be the "go to" place to stay in Napier. Brilliant.

We spent four very happy nights here and didn't want to leave (our clothes wouldn't have fitted if we stayed any longer!).

This BnB is one of the best. Hosts Simon and Wendy are sensational hosts. From the moment we arrived they were attentive and most welcoming.

Firstly, this was our first B&B and now are weary that anything could beat this amazing experience. Simon and Wendy were far more than hosts, they quickly became like long life friends.
