TLGHONTH is about a 10 minute relaxing walk into town and a 20 minute calorie burning energetic one back again up the hill. It is an older style building overlooking the town on Napier. The room is large with a good sized bathroom. WiFi is very good. Our host Ruth was very welcoming and helpful with advice on what we... More

Our first stay while coming to NZ for our 4 week trip. Napier, lovely small town (50k) house on top of hill, good room, lovely breakfast, owners are selling house so not sure this will be open in future. Friendly hosts gave us couple of good tips what to do. Free parking, room in shade

Thank you for your review, so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we have sold the house and 'The Green House on the Hill' will no longer be in operation. We are relocating to Gisborne after 14 successful years running our B&B and hope to offer the same warm welcome there in a few months time! I do hope you... More

Booked the Green House for a one night stay in November. A beautiful location around 10 mins walk from the centre of Napier. Up a steep hill but its only short. Lovely welcome from Ruth and nice clean spacious room. Breakfast was fruits/cereals/coffee/yoghurt on the deck looking out over Napier. Couldn't fault it! Would definitely recommend

Fantastic stay and host Ruth was lovely. She made us feel so welcome and served up a fantastic breakfast. She had lots of offer about the area too, great seen as though we're moving to the area. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

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.

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
