Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in the spacious accommodation in this gracious period house which is so central but peaceful too. On arrival Catherine quickly got us sorted for one of us to make use of the walking tour of the town leaving within 15mins and the other to use the fantastic good value baths across the road overlooking the...

We stayed at Seaview Lodge for two days while on a motorcycle tour and only regret we couldn't stay longer! The host, Catharine, was a complete delight, and knew Napier like the back of her hand. The house is a lovely old Victorian with wonderful views of the ocean and Napier proper, and within easy walking distance of just about... More

Seaview lodge is a Victorian house full of character and located so close to the town centre but nevertheless in a quiet cul-de-sac. The views out over the sea and the centre of town are spectacular. Catherine was a lovely friendly and helpful host and couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the view was special. Comfortable... More

The room was lovely, the bed very comfy and the view of the water amazing. Catherine could not have been more helpful recommending things to see in Napier, and even gave me a lift to the airport. Croissants for breakfast on the balcony was a great start to the day. The house was an easy walk from town and just... More

We could only stay one night, but the Seaview was a memorable accommodation. Catherine is so helpful and flexible, not to mention that she is an excellent chef. We enjoyed the balcony overlooking the sea and the comfy common lounge. We could hear the big waves at night! Be sure to ask Catherine about the history of the building which... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, this was a great choice for being central in Napier and for the wineries ( the main reason for the visit). The house is in great condition for its age with good sized rooms and large shared lounge with balcony. The breakfast was filling with a good choice and the best pastry's . Good local... More

Very comfortable B & B with delicious fresh fruit/yoghurt/muesli/croissant breakfast and friendly, helpful host. The location is great - we had a room with sea views, and it was very handy being able to walk straight down into town or for a walk along the sea front.

We just stayed one night en route to Wellington. The house is just beautiful with lovely original features. Catherine, the owner and hostess, was charming and helpful and provided a lovely breakfast on the verandah. We ate that evening at Kilim, an excellent Turkish restaurant where you can take your own wine at no extra charge. We swam opposite the... More

We had a wonderful time in this B&B. Catherine was extremely welcoming and even though we were several hours early we were able to check in and get into our room. The location is superb - only a short walk to the Art Deco capital of the Southern Hemisphere. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the surrounding exquisite. Our only... More

Catherine was a very nice and good host. We had a great time in Napier and the Seaview Lodge was one of the reason for our good memories about Napier. The Room was very nice and beautiful decorated.
