Reviewed December 28, 2013

We only stayed for one night with Wendy and Pete in their nice B&B. We had a comfortable room and were also able to have a very refreshing hop into the solar heated swimming pool. In the evening we were invited to drink some wine and had some cheese as well as an interesting conversation with Wendy and Pete, we enjoyed this very much. As our preferred dining spot “Mission Valley” was fully booked, Wendy suggested an Italian restaurant in Napier, which was very good. The breakfast on the next morning was delicious and we were sad to leave after only one night. We highly recommend staying at 119 on Georges.

Pete and I so enjoyed meeting you both and pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Undoubtedly the highlight of operating a Bed and Breakfast are the folk we meet and the time sharing a wine at the end of the day gives us the perfect opportunity to learn of our guests' lifestyle and their travels. Very best of wishes to you both for the coming year.

I echo many other top reviews and comments from previous guests.
We stayed at Wendy and Peter's B&B for one night. We were made to feel very welcome and would have liked to stay longer. The room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed.
The breakfast was delicious and gave us a great start to the day. Wendy and Peter were very knowledgeable about the local area and recommended several places to visit.
The B&B was easy to find and only a short distance from the center of town.

We were having a one night stay in Napier as part of a 3 week whislte stop tour of NZ and we couldn't have asked for a better place than here 119 on Georges!

As soon as we booked, Wendy got in touch to ask if we wanted to use the bikes (unfortunately we didn't have time to do so) and whether we wanted an evening meal cooking for us. As we were only in Napier the one night, we decided we wouldn't take them up on the offer as we wanted to see a bit of Napier in the short time we had.

Wendy and Pete made us feel so welcome in their home on arrival and we joined them early in the evening for a glass of wine out by their pool, which was a lovely way to share what we had been and would be doing on our holiday!

They kindly recommended and booked us into a lovely Italian for our evening meal, which I forget the name of now but was one of the best meals of the holiday... as was Pete's cooked breakfast the next morning!!

The room we had was lovely, very elegantly decorated with a clean, modern bathroom.

Really glad we stayed here, just wish it had been for a little longer!!

Wendy and Peter have a gift of making you feel so welcomed and real guests in their house. Before we arrived we were asked [emailed] to see whether we wanted an evening meal - ofcourse - and would a BBQ be OK. It was a lovely start to our stay and made it very special to chat informally and sit down to dinner with our hosts. The bedroom/ensuite was comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. More bathroom products would have been useful. There was enough room for myself and my friend even though we had a lot of luggage. Wendy and Peter were very helpful and provided us with lots of useful information. We were slightly puzzled about whether the lounge was for guest use or not. We both felt we could not use it during the evening. It wasn't clear. However a delightful property and highly recommended for a short stay in a beautiful town.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Guests are welcome in our lounge area when we share our complimentary evening drink at the end of the day, and also if they decide on an optional evening meal with us. I am sorry you felt we didn't offer sufficient toiletries. We will ensure this doesn't happen in the future. Do hope you continued to enjoy your time in New Zealand and have taken home some wonderful memories.

We only stayed one night at 119 Georges but would have loved to stay longer. Our room, just like the whole house, was very tastefully decorated, the bed was supercomfortable and the bathroom spacious and squeaky clean. Although the room was facing Georges Drive it was quiet enough - not many cars passing during the night and tight-closing windows. It's an easy 20-minute stroll to the center of town.

Our hosts Pete & Wendy were very helpful and friendly - Pete even took us to the airport in the morning after the two had served us a sumptous and delicious breakfast we very much enjoyed. It was certainly on of the best breakfasts we had during our 2.5 month journey through Australia and New Zealand.

We have stayed at many B&B while visiting O/S so now used to doing it..
Booked on line and arrived to a nicely renovated older house.
Tapped on the door and was greeted by a very friendly lady and it got better as the day went on.
Both Peter and Wendy have a real gem here.They have only been in the B&B for round 12 months,and from what they said it has been so busy.
6 pm is a get together with the guests in the lounge and this was a really great time,everybody got to know the others.
The house is beautifully done inside and out. The rooms are very comfortable,and one can have a good nights sleep.
Pet is the man when it comes to breakfast, he can give you a full restaurant meal and is was soooo nice. thanks mate
The last of the Americas cup was on so we all spent time together watching the race..
The B&B is quite central and lots of eating places with in walking distance,and some others a little further out.
Just ask Wendy and she will help out.
Plenty of other attractions of all kinds
Well what can I say.....If you are ever in Napier and need a bed then give these guys a call and you will have a time you will remember ...This was one of our best stays.thanks guys..

This was only our second stay in a B&B, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Wendy & Peter were the ultimate hosts, from our 6.00pm get together, to our breakfast to booking our wine tour with Prinsy's Tours, and giving great suggestions on where to dine out and go sightseeing. Our shared home cooked evening dinner with Wendy and Peter was a great get to know each other session. The location was great being only a couple of minutes drive to the centre of Napier.
I would recommend staying at 119 on George's to anyone wanting something quiet and relaxed with the added advantage of fantastic hosts.
