We were offered a very warm welcome and great hospitality by Jacquie and Murray Sutherland. Helm's Crag has spacious and well-designed bedrooms with excellent en-suite facilities, and nice open public areas with excellent views over the bay offered by the hilltop location. The breakfasts were exceptional. Highly recommended

We arrived at a busy time for our hosts, but Murray and Mac (small dog) greeted us warmly with wine and salmon on pancakes and gave us a guided tour of the modern facilities. Our downstairs room was spacious and adjacent to it was a guest lounge allowing us both privacy and the opportunity to share with others (if we... More

My mother who is in a wheelchair found it good as far as the bathroom facilities went. Her kingsize bed was very comfortable but it was quite low and a little difficult for her... More

We had the very good fortune to choose to stay with Murray and Jacquie at Helm Crag for the 2012 Art Deco Festival. Not only were they fantastic hosts but also gave us great tips for our stay in the rest of NZ. Looking forward to the 2013 festival! Judith and Andrew, Brunswick, Victoria, Australia

We stayed 2 nights in Helm Crag whilst touring New Zealand's North Island, and enjoyed the quiet location in a charming neighbourhood, high above the centre of Napier. It is situated on quite a steep hill - not easy to walk down to or back up from the town centre, but near the Botanic Gardens and only short car or... More
