We booked this as a Grab One deal and had high expectations given the photos and description and the high price.

We were offered... More

This is a fantastic luxury B & B with attention to all details. The decor, linen etc are luxurious and Steve & Lynn are great hosts. The breakfasts were terrific. We had a lovely art deco tour of Hastings in the 1938 Buick. We thoroughly recommend this place as a fantastic treat!

We chose Park Hill Estate after touring the various upmarket lodges in Hawkes Bay in the summer. It is in a great location set amongst vineyards with peaks of sea and Hawkes Bay hills. It's close to some great wineries with wonderful restaurants, close to the sea and yet Art Deco Napier, Hastings and the charming village of Havelock North... More

All the rooms are beautiful and each special in its own way. We stayed in ZaZa or the monkey room with a shower I long to have at my house. Have... More

We had an amazing two days at Parkhill Estate recently, from the moment we arrived (just in time for a glass of wine and Steve's yummy canapés before heading out for dinner) right up until we left (after yet another one of Steve's great breakfasts), we felt so welcome and relaxed. We stayed in ZaZa's room with the fab monkey... More
