Our Semillon Room was very spacious in a self contained area in this characterful house. We had a good large bathroom with separate loo and separate shower and fluffy towels. The bed was extremely comfortable and smashing linen. The Lodge is set in a small vineyard and is in a peaceful location about fifteen minutes out of downtown Napier. On...

I stayed in the lovely Esk Valley Lodge as part of a family group of 5 adults - we stayed in a twin room, and the double room with single annexe. The rooms were very clean and pleasantly stylish - not in the slightest bit chintzy - and the bathrooms were immaculate with lovely towels. Location is lovely and rural...

We stayed two nights in the Semillon room, it was very comfortable, with a large bathroom and separate tolit. Their hospitality was excellent and breakfast was...

We spent two night here in Nov 2012. The place is absolutely beautiful: gardens, vineyards and the house. The valley is very peaceful and this is the perfect place to relax. Breakfast was great and we ordered food from Eileen ans Jes (the owners) for one dinner. It was the best food we've got so far in NZ. Very much...

We had a pleasant and relaxing stay. We were warmly welcomed with nibbles and a nice glass of our hosts own wine. We were there in winter so there was a cosy atmosphere and a roaring fire in the guest lounge. The rooms where comfortable and scrupulously clean. Breakfast was fresh, abundant and delicious. A little out of town, which...

Exceptionally comfortable, beautifully renovated country house. We stayed in the Semillon suite which included a lovely lounge area as a well as a balcony terrace looking over the garden. Very welcoming and friendly hosts and we particularly enjoyed the small touches of luxury that helped to make our stay very special.

Pleasant relaxing and tranquil the hosts are both professional and welcoming. The house is charming and surrounds as nice as the photos suggest. Breakfast was excellent.Just remember you are a few kilometres out of town so you need to sort out what you want to do for dinner in advance.

Overall rating probably 4-1/2 rather than just 4. We stayed only one night at Esk Valley Lodge -- wish we'd had more time. It was very enjoyable. Jes, Eileen and their wonderful dog were most welcoming. We (two couples) arrived just in time for wine and nibblies on the verandah. Very quickly relaxed us after a long day's drive. Jes...
