We had a wonderful stay at the Green house, lovely comfortable beds, peace and quiet and justs ten mins stroll from the CBD. The hosts Ruth and Jerry are fabulous, gorgeous breakfast with home made preserves and the best ever date and orange muffins. Little touches include fluffy bedrobes and a book swap, an option for Earl Grey tea in... More

Love this place so much I had my third stay at The Green House on the Hill. Ruth and Jerry as always made me feel very welcome with their warm cheerful ways. The accommodation is very neat and clean and there is a delightful view from the deck area - I love it when Ruth puts the breakfast out there... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying at this B&B and loved it. Everything you could possibly need is provided, and Eco friendly. Our Accommodation included a lounge area as well as bedroom, and was extremely well presented, with a welcome afternoon tea.

We love the place so much! Napier is such a small town, you can easily take a walk from the place to the main streets(5 min) and to the seaside(less than15min to i-site) . The recommendations and travelling tips from the host and other travelers were very helpful, nearly as tripadvisor level I must say! The rooms were very comfy... More

The self-contained accommodation has all one needs; has also a Hot Tips book for guests to contribute to, eg details of other excellent b and bs further afield.

We felt welcome from the moment we drove into the driveway. greeted us with a welcome sign in the front of the house and her hospitality never faded. Our room was comfortable and quiet. This house has a unique location on a beautiful lane. The view from upstairs makes you feel as though you are in a tree house. Napier... More

Breakfast was delicious and... More

The Green House on the Hill was a great way for us to get in shape for trekking! The room was large and comfortable. I particularly liked the soap and lotion in the bathroom. This was my favorite breakfast of our whole trip--scones, toast, cereal, yogurt, beautiful fresh berries, and lots of coffee eaten outdoors on the deck with a... More

We had made a reservation well in advance our our trip to Napier and received a confirmation from Travelocity of our booking. Somehow our booking got cancelled and we were concerned about finding other accommodations in Napier.

Ruth (hostess) couldn't have been more helpful. Wonderfully comfortable and delicious homemade breakfasts. A great location as well,as the house is high above the town. Be warned, there is a stiff climb up but well worth it and good for the thigh muscles.
