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.

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. From the wonderful breakfast that she made (best omelette ever!) to the well kept snooker table where we could have a leisurely game to the scrabble set... More

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"

Yvonne was an amazing host, very welcoming, friendly and informative. She helped us to organise trips whilst we were there and gave us insight into the history of the house, and Napier in general. McHardy Lodge is a beautiful property with lots of delightfully decorated rooms in which to relax, or indeed play snooker on a full size table in... More

On visiting Napier we decided to have a break from staying in our campervan and decided upon McHardy Lodge. It was a fabulous decision. Yvonne went beyond the call of duty by washing our filthy tramping gear. That was a bonus on top of the excellent service and amenities she provided - nothing was a problem and by the end... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and couldn't have been better cared for by Yvonne. The sheer pride and pleasure she takes in caring for her guests and telling us about the house, its history and Napier was wonderful. The Venice suite which we had was so comfortable and the icing on the cake were the chocolates and champagne in... More

As an Aucklander I visited Napier for the first time and found McHardy Lodge a real delight. Loved the history of the place and the immaculate presentation of the Lodge. Tasty breakfasts each morning served outside on the terrace or at the kitchen table, and attention to detail. This is a haven for New Zealanders and internationals!

Thank you for your lovely comments on McHardy Lodge - eating on the deck overlooking the pool and ocean is indeed a lovely relaxing way to start the day.

Stunning accommodation with an attentive and incredibly helpful and informative host. Yvonne, the Lodge is a real credit to you. We loved all of your suggestions. The breakfast pancakes were scrumptious, the evening glass of wine a treat, the beds so comfortable - all in all, the best place to stay in Napier. Worth every cent - treat yourself -... More

If you are coming to Napier for the Art-Deco don't miss a stay here. You are transported back in time as if it was in the 30's .....without any compromise to todays luxuries. The house is absolutely stunning where almost every room has a story to it. Breakfast is abundant and very high quality.
