Seaview Lodge
Ranked #9 of 42 Napier B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 November 2016

We had space, comfort, luxury and the friendliest host you could wish. What a 'find'! Nothing was too much trouble and the surroundings and views from the deck were just wonderful. The bed was comfortable, the lounge area for the sole use of guests was spacious and well appointed, with refreshments topped up regularly. Wish we could have stayed longer than the 2 nights we had booked on our travels around the N. Island.

Room Tip: Accommodation excellent, no need to choose a particular room

So glad you enjoyed your time here. Yes, our large upstairs deck is a wonderful place to sit with a wine in hand and watch the sea in one direction or views over the city in the other! We are spoiled! Best wishes to you both, Catherine

Our 3 week trip around the North Island included some great accommodation in fantastic locations but none better than our only B&B- Seaview Lodge. Our ensuite room was spacious and very comfortable with a lovely view over the beach and Napier. Over a delicious breakfast Catherine, our host, would give options for places to see, restaurants and vineyards not to miss and interesting historical facts on the local area. It felt like we were visiting a friend. We stayed 3 nights and we still could have seen and done more. Thanks Catherine xx

Thank you for taking the time to write a review ..... and for your lovely comments! I guess that is the difference between a B and B and other accommodation types - I love to give that personal service and care and add that 'extra' to the whole Hawkes Bay experience.
I really enjoyed having you both here and hope you will return - still many more wineries and fantastic restaurants to enjoy!! Regards, Catherine

Travelled down to Napier from Auckland, via Rotorua, arriving at this bed & breakfast, tired. This was immediately forgotten on realising that we had booked in to probably, the best B&B in Napier! The rooms were delightful, spacious, comfortable with a balcony overlooking the bay and the town. Catherine is a perfect host and the girls made good use of the breakfast room/dance room and piano! Lovely breakfast to set us up for the day ahead. Wished we had booked at least two nights to discover more of Napier's Art Deco.

Thank you for your wonderful review - so glad the girls could make use of our large breakfast room and get in some dance practice! The joy of the beautiful wooden floor and piano! Yes, it is a shame you couldn't stay longer - next time 2 or 3 nights! Regards, Catherine

As two couples we had the upstairs area to use. The large deck offered great views over Hawkes Bay. Woke up to a great sunrise.

Our rooms were very large, comfortable and clean.

Catherine provided with relevant information regarding dining and was there to help when required.

Catherine's "B and B" ticks all the boxes. Easy stroll down steps to the town, rooms are clean and spacious.

Have no hesitation in recommending Seaview Lodge to visitors to Napier.

Room Tip: Both rooms are large and have views.

After much searching on the internet we settled on Seaview Lodge and we couldn't have been happier. Catherine, the hostess, was so accommodating and had thought of everything. Imagine our delight when we arrived home at night to the warmth of a beautiful fire roaring away. We had the upstairs space to ourselves and felt thoroughly spoilt with the space and views. The bed was very comfortable and after a good nights sleep, we were treated to a very yummy home made breakfast - top marks for the croissants.
Catherine was very helpful in advising her guests of suitable activities and restaurants. She was bang on with her recommendations.
We loved the fact we could just walk to town - no parking to worry about.
Thanks for the great couple of nights Catherine - hopefully it won't be too long before we are back enjoying your hospitality.
