We arrived (earlier than expected) to a warm welcome, a historic property, beautiful views, extraordinary accommodations (Versaille room) and an intelligent, knowledgable hostess! Our stay here was the highlight of our three weeks in New Zealand. The warmth of this "home's" common space encourages casual conversation with Yvonne and the other guests. The rooms (there are 6) are exquisitely appointed.... More

We had three nights at McHardy Lodge in February 2015 and were blown away by the property, it's situation and the friendliness of the Lodge. The rooms are beautiful, spotless and comfortable. Breakfast is served in a sunny dining kitchen around a large table which gives you the chance to chat to other guests to hear what they've been doing.... More

We just completed a wonderful two-night stay at McHardy Lodge in Napier, and we wish we could have stayed longer. Yvonne was a lovely host, ready with lots of local knowledge and recommendations. Breakfast each morning was superb, and the rooms and overall lodge accommodations phenomenal. Beautiful views of the city from the breakfast table as well. We will be... More

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at McHardy Lodge. Excellent accomodations, very clean, quiet, and comfortable. The breakfasts cooked by our wonderful hostess were delicious and of a size to set you up well for the day ahead. The owner was very helpful with information of the area and history of the city. We would definitely stay here again.... More

From the moment I arrived to my departure three days later I had a wonderful experience. Yvonne the innkeeper is pleasant, knowledgeable, and exudes hospitality. The room (Chianti Suite), the house itself and the food were all first rate. It's located in a charming neighborhood and offers gorgeous water views from some areas of the house. I highly recommend this... More

Unlike the average hotel or B & B, McHardy Lodge is a beautiful old house on top of a hill with a stunning view.The owner, Yvonne, is most helpful with suggestions of places to visit and will go out of the way to ensure your restaurant bookings are in order.

Shame about the room , overlooking the car park, large but gloomy on the ground floor. If you come here ask for a sea view. We were here on last day of Art Deco Festival weekend and that was delightful. Nice Pool in the garden to sit by.

McHardyL, Owner at McHardy Lodge, responded to this review

I am so sorry that we were unable to meet your expectations with regard to a sea view - you arrived during Art Deco weekend, which is the busiest of the year, and we were fully booked. Had we had a room with a sea view we would naturally have moved you. The suite is on the ground floor as... More

My husband and I started our second honeymoon in Napier and we were lucky to find McHardy! Our stay was excellent- Yvonne the owner of this lovely house made sure it was so.

Stunning location, stunning house, stunning interior. Our only regret is we couldn't stay longer, both at this wonderful Lodge and Napier. We arrived and left just before the Art Deco Festival weekend, so disappointed that we missed it. , Yvonne is a wonderful host and suggested several things we could do, unfortunately there just wasn't enough time to fit it...

I am absolutely in love with the age and pure magic of the house. Has a billiards table which my partner is very happy about. Yvonne is a lovely host! And for the extra money its really worth splashing out for if you want to relax and get away from the normal "hotel"

It was a pleasure having you both to stay at McHardy Lodge and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. It is lovely to see someone appreciating our competition size billiard table - you must come back again to get some more practice!
