A 2 day visit on route south. Comfortable bed, excellent library and good restaurant advice. The biggest strawberries I have ever seen for breakfast! If we ever visit Napier again this is where we will stay.

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely B&B. Super comfy bed, lovely thick white fluffy towels, superb breakfast and very friendly kind and helpful hosts. We would not hesitate to go back if we visit Napier again.

We were fortunate enough to have three days at this B&B in Taradale and loved every minute of our stay there. Fiona and husband Brent, made us feel very welcome and were very happy to make some recommendations as to where we might dine and what we should look for on the wine list. Proved to be very sound advice!... More

We had a one night stop over in Napier and Fiona was a wonderful host. She went out of her way to make us feel at home. We stayed in the Eleanor room which was large and cozy.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Kerry Lodge. We are situated in the heart of Taradale, just ten minutes from Napier, 15 minutes from Hastings and only minutes away from New Zealand's two oldest wineries, Church Road Winery and Mission Estate Winery. Ideally placed for all Hawke's Bay activities. Our premises include a fully self contained two bedroom cottage and two large bed and breakfast rooms in the "big house". We are situated on a quiet back section in half an acre of gardens. After a day's sightseeing you are welcome to take a dip in the pool or join us relaxing on the deck. There is also a guest lounge with tea and coffee making facilities and some light reading. Or, to completely unwind, you might like to book a massage (charged separately) with Fiona who is a trained massage therapist. Because Hawke's Bay is one of the sunniest and warmest areas in New Zealand, it is a wonderful place to visit and holiday in - with fabulous world class vineyards through to stunning Art Deco architecture. We look forward to sharing it with you. PS. We also have a rehomed greyhound, Mu-mu. Mu-mu has free range of the back of the house but to her great disappointment she is not allowed in the guest areas of the house. ... more   less
