We meant to stay 2 nights, but extended our visit because of Robert and Wendy's excellent hospitality. Their knowlede of the wineries and local neighbourhood - especially the best restaurants - gave us a good all round impression of Hawke's Bay on a very short trip. They also made you feel thoroughly at home, as if you were friends, not tourists. A first class advertisement for Napier - we thought it a great place.
