Jill and Allan are the most welcoming hosts ever! Nothing is too much trouble, we were even offered lifts into town each night. The rooms are lovely and thoughtfully prepared, including home made cookies and a very nice bottle of wine. Breakfast was delicious and the location is stunning! It really was super comfortable and very much home from home....

Jill and Allan certainly know how to please guests. Great location, clean, bright, comfortable. Their attention to detail is spot on. Breakfasts are fresh and delicious with Jill's home-made preserves a highlight. Their approach is warm and welcoming but not overbearing. It's friendly and relaxed. Highly recommend this place.

Jill and Alan are amazing hosts. The landing is an exceptional B&B in a beautiful town. We flew into Napier specially as we heard it was well worth a detour.
