We wished we could have stayed more than 2 nights! Jill and Alan were incredibly hospitable and helpful. Their recommendations were perfect for meals and they will even drop you off at dinner if you don't feel like driving. Downtown Napier is only a few min drive and the view from the Landing is worth being up on the hill!... More

hello folks Thanks very much for the review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your time here at the Landing, Napier - and we knew that the golf at Cape Kidnappers was a highlight. Gluten free options for breakfast are no problem -and lots of choice too for dining options closeby. Thanks for showing me the sketch from the top floor... More

We loved The Landing. It is an ultra modern house on Bluff Hill with a view over the bay. Our large front room was spacious, light, and with careful attention to every detail. Jill and Allan are brilliant hosts - friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We followed all their advice and had a brilliant time - wine-tasting, tractor-trailing to Cape Kidnappers... More

Hello Pegotty Thank you for the review. It was lovely to meet you both -and that you were able to stay on for an extra night. It is always nice for us when guests appreciate the house, and relax and make the most of it -especially with the fine sunny weather we were enjoying. Glad you enjoyed all the activities... More

Jill came out to greet us on our arrival and made us feel relaxed and comfortable. We had a beautiful room with a view of the harbour and it was all a treat. The breakfast was first class with lovely fresh fruit, delicious bread and great coffee. We enjoyed the whole experience immensely.

Hello folks Thanks very much for the review. We are glad you found it relaxing - both here at the house, and visiting Hawkes Bay. You don't have to go far to visit the Art Deco centre of town, the wineries -the beautiful countryside -and of course all those orchards make it easy for us to serve a selection of... More

The Landing is at the end of a narrow street at the top of Bluff Hill, with incredible views of the harbor. The house is very modern, with a huge amount of glass that lets one feel a part of the view. Jill and Allan are most accommodating hosts, and a great deal of fun. Jill's breakfasts are outstanding with... More

Hello folks Thanks so much for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your time here at the Landing. You were here on one of the hottest days of the summer -and I am sorry I didn't explain that there is a portable air-conditioning unit for the Studio.

Garden view was our chosen suite. Because the weather was very warm for our 2 day visit ( February 27-Mar 1)we appreciated being on the lower floor away from the setting sun. The suite was comfortable and as an added bonus we had the use of a shady patio. When we arrived Jill worked her magic and made a last... More

Jill and Allan will take care of you, BUT, they are selling the place, so unsure who/what will replace them. Being on the hill, it is walk to the center, but Jill is ready to drop you off within a short distance of the center. The other disadvantage is the absence of A/C in the bedrooms. Jill is very accommodating... More

Hello folks Thanks very much for your review. Being here over Art Deco weekend meant you saw Napier at one of it's busiest times -but lots of fun with all the vintage cars, planes, people in deco costume, and activities all around town. It was also one of the hottest days of the summer. I am sorry I didn't explain... More

If you can manage to get the Bayview Suite in this 3-room B&B, you are in for a treat. It is large, spotlessly clean and what isn't glass is nicely appointed. You are on Napier's highest hill overlooking the bay about 500 metres away. The hostess will give you your breakfast of choice and help you every way she can... More

We had such a lovely stay at the landing, beautiful rooms, stunning views and excellent hosts!!We would highly recommend this place and would stay again! Could not have asked for any better! Breakfast was great, and we were made to feel very welcome by Jill and Allan. We had a very special first wedding anniversary! Peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

Just a fleeting trip this time and The Landing was a welcome oasis at the end of a long drive. We will be back for a more leisurely stay at a later date. Jill is a wonderful hostess who effortlessly creates a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere for guests.
