We stayed at the Lawn Cottages for 2 nights. The setting in the gardens is very tranquil and the cottages are lovely and very central. Jacqui and Ski were very nice and they went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. The Lawn Cottages provide a great base to sample all that the local vineyards have on offer... More

What an amazing place to stay at!!!! Jacquie, Ski & Meg were so accomodating towards our every need and managed to keep our large diverse age group very comfortable. To be honest, all the personal touches from them made you feel at home, from homemade jam to friendly goodbye emails when you left gave you a lovely experience to remember.... More

A getaway without the kids to NZ's wine Capitol and Lawn Cottages provided us with a wonderful hideaway. Owner was helpful in organising a wine tour last minute and answered all of our questions about food and shopping in the area. Would not hesitate recommending them or to stay there again!!!

We stayed here for 4 nights last week and it was an amazing stay. The cottages are beautiful as are the gardens. Jacquie and Ski, the owners, went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. I HIGHLY recommend these cottages if you are intending a visit to the Napier area.

Thanks Jacquie and Ski for a fabulous few days. Wonderful hosts - nothing was too much trouble - and I think we may have been quite troublesome.

We had such a lovely time in the cottage, Jacquie and Ski were both so welcoming and nothing was a problem. Amazing grounds that our son just loved running around and especially the big fish in the pond! The cottage had excellent facilities it was a home away from home. Would stay again :)
