My wife and I, Canadians visiting New Zealand for the first time, stayed at McHardy Lodge on 2014-02-02. We have stayed at many B&Bs, but would rate McHardy Lodge as a definite 15+ out of 10! Beautiful restored home, with gorgeous guest rooms, plus very nice billiard room, sitting room, outside deck and pool. House has interesting history, and proprietor, Yvonne, is knowledgeable about the house and its history. She also is a friendly, gracious host, who made us a scrumptious breakfast. She suggested the 'Guided Walking Tour' of downtown Napier (was re-built in the early 1930s in 'Art Deco' style), which we enjoyed immensely. Our only regret was that we were able to stay only 1 night. We highly recommend a visit to Napier, and if you do, definitely consider staying at McHardy Lodge!
