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

My wife and I were fortunate to find a home away from home--we live in the Washington DC area of the States--during our visit to New Zealand in August, 2014. Recommended by friends in Auckland, we knew we would have only a weekend in Napier, a city about which we had heard a good deal, but knew little. As part... More
