It was the best B&B of our trip in New Zealand. We were given a complementary room upgrade for our stay and the views from our room was stunning especially the sunset.

From the minute I rung to make a book Jill made my experience special by giving us a deal on the room. I felt like I was coming home as Jill opened the door and let us check in early.

We were glad we had a satnav to guide us here as it is in a rabbit warren of roads on the hill overlooking the town. However, it is a very quiet location. We were surprised to see such a modern house (despite seeing the pictures on tripadvisor before booking!!). Jill and Alan were so kind and welcoming it would... More

Up on the hill in Napier so you are promised great views. Note you are just above the container port so look out not down! Rooms are lovely, breakfast very nice and the hosts offer to take you to town/restaurants and then can back. There is parking but it's a tiny little street. Top level is best.

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

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.
