Not much more to say as the title says it all. Oh i forgot about the great breakfast Ruth and Jeremy put on. I would also like to thank them for accommodating our young son who did his best to disassemble Ruth's highchair. Also gave some very useful information on sights to see and restaurants to eat at.

Ruth was a very welcoming host and we loved the homemade breakfast, especially when we could sit on the decking and enjoy the fabulous view. Our room was initially rather cold until we discovered the air conditioning was also a heater. The walk up to the b&b is very steep but we had been expecting this (and are a fit... More

I loved my stay at Ruth´s B&B. It´s a beautiful house on top of a hill, nevertheless very close to Napier´s center (5-10 min walk). The room was very spacious with modern ensuite, loved the eco friendly shower gel etc. that is provided. Complimentary coffee and tea in the room, as well as a little fridge. On my arrival day...

I was looking forward to staying at Green House on the Hill, and it didn't disappoint us. Ruth is a lovely host. The breakfasts of cereals, toast, fruit, yogurts and even a special fruit smoothie if your lucky. She provided my partner with special Gluten Free options. We loved the daily banana muffins. The location is great, although beware their... More

At the end of an outstanding trip to NZ we thought that we were wowed-out.....but no! The green house on the hill was stunning too. Fabulous views, high amongst the trees, luxurious bathroom and bedroom. Warm and friendly hosts who went above and beyond, even helping us with some washing! Eco friendly products in the house, great breakfasts of cereal,... More

The Green House on the Hill has a panoramic view over the town and harbour of Napier, a very attractive Art Deco place. Ruth, the friendly hostess, had put a helpful welcoming sign for us by the house which also indicated where we should park. As the name suggests, it is not only painted green but also environmentally friendly. Weather... More

We stayed two nights in the ensuite room which was very comfortable, spacious and clean. There is no view from this room but a good view from the breakfast deck. Nice touch was the guest comment book with guests recommendations for things to do and dinner spots. Breakfast is taken on a deck overlooking the town and sea. We had... More
