This is an outstanding B&B, just across Marine Parade from the beach, with beautifully appointed rooms, a gorgeous view of the South Pacific from the front room, and an excellent location only a few minutes' walk to town. My friends had the very large front room with lots of windows facing the ocean, and I had a smaller but very pretty room at the rear of the property with French doors opening onto a good-sized deck with attractive, comfortable deck furniture. As the reviews mention, the continental breakfasts are delicious.
A visitor's center is just 5 minutes' walk down the street, and near it, on a shared path running along the ocean, is a bike shop where bikes can be rented and ridden for miles along the coast in either direction. Napier is definitely a worthwhile destination, and the Manor on Parade is strategically placed to take advantage of its charms.
