I cannot praise Mission B&B enough. We spent Anzac weekend here, as a family group ranging in age from 16 months to 86 years, and couldn't have been more pleased. Wendy was an amazing host, and went far above and beyond what you would normally expect - she had even baked a cake for us when we arrived! The outdoor... More

We stayed for 3 nights in February 2014 and loved it! Simon and Wendy are the perfect hosts - friendly, welcoming, always there when you need something, but also giving you your own space. We had the Mission Room which has a private outside entrance and its own deck. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Napier centre is... More

Simon put on quite a spread for breakfast, every day was different and delicious. We enjoyed "fivesies" the first evening with wine and a large and tasty spread of munchies on the deck. The room was comfortable and modern. Just a short drive to the center of Napier.
