I stayed there end of May 2014. Ruth took me to and from the airport and made me feel at home there. 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

Having been recommended to me by friends, The Green House on the Hill fulfilled my expectations. Ruth was only too happy to collect me from and drop my case to the bus station and included a quick tour of the town when I arrived. A lovely room in a lovely location with everything you could need. 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. Our gracious hostess, Ruth, was able to provide us with a lovely room for the first night and then arranged another room in... More

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.

This is a great place to stay. We had a very large, comfortable and cozy room with ensuite. Ruth is a very nice person and it was a pleasure talking to her.

We loved the green house of the hill as our introduction to napier. Lots of ideas and recommendations from our fabulous host too. Breakfast was delicious, a good nights sleep in a comfy bed.

We recently stayed at The Green House on the Hill and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our room was very well-appointed and a great size.

The Green House proved to be a pleasant place to stay and we would recommend it. The hosts were very pleasant and obliging and had set out our rooms with just about everything you could possibly need, including Shortbread when we arrived. An excellent breakfast, on fine days ,is partaken on an area overlooking Napier and has wonderful sea views;... More
