Manor on Parade
Ranked #34 of 41 Napier B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 4, 2013

An excellent B&B in a perfect location near the centre of town.
An "old" character building
The room was very well appointed, with a large deck area.
Fantastic breakfasts! So much choice.
Hosts friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: We had Room 3, which is at the back. It has a large deck and is very quiet. Outlook onto rooftops S...

Julie is a very capable host. Our room overlooked the sea and can only be described as excellent in fact it set the standard by which we judged all other places that we stayed during our trip. It was sad to hear that Julie and Colin may soon leave. We would wish them well and at the same time a little sadness that they may not be there if we visit Napier again.

Having read the reviews we were excited about staying here. Our welcome was cold compared with most places we have stayed in NZ. Our host did not even appear at breakfast although the breakfast was excellent. We had room 3 at the back with a balcony. It was very small and only had views of roofs.Perhaps our experience was because it's for sale.

Such a great B&B - friendly hosts. Nice and comfortable bedroom. And the breakfast was amazing. The decor is very traditional - but that fits in with the city. I recommend it for people who like to travel in style. There are some steep stairs so beware of that - all rooms are upstairs.

We stayed for 2 nights in room 3, the one with a balcony. All rooms are on the 1st floor. Owners live on the ground floor of the Manor. The house and the room were all in all tastefully decorated. The room was wonderful, very clean and quietly situated at the back side of the house. The bathroom was large and modern. The location is excellent, 5 minutes to walk to the town center with its Art Deco buildings and a 30 minutes drive to the start point of Cape Kidnappers tour. You can park the car in front of the Manor or nearby at Marine Parade, very convenient.

The owners keep away from guests in a maybe unusual way for a B & B, but we mostly liked this way of handling guest contact as we appreciate to be left in privacy instead of being forced to small-talk about everything.

Breakfast is served on the ground floor from 8-9 am only. And this is our minor criticism: if you are the first at 8 am, you can enjoy a large variety of fresh fruit, jam, toast, pastry, butter and a little bit of cheese on the breakfast table shared by all. Unfortunately, and this was a disturbing thing, if you come later (meaning about 8.30 am) you might find the table in a mess like it was the case on one of our mornings –the owners did not appear in the breakfast room all the time we had breakfast and obviously also not before we came as used plates and cups, used knifes, bread crumbs, half-eaten food etc. of others were on the table all the time we sat there, and the cheese also did not look very inviting any more as others obviously used their knifes with jam on it to cut it…..this could definitely be better.

We stayed for 3 nights in January - the front room is very spacious with a sea view - we were aware of a little road noise the 1st night but by the 2nd had forgotten about it - breakfasts were super with a huge fresh fruit platter to start with - just a short walk to reach the city centre, many restaurants nearby -the city centre Art Deco tour from the i centre was excellent.

Room Tip: The front room was excellent - maybe a little road noise

We stayed at Manor On Parade just for one night. We had requested the front room with the ocean view. The room was extremely spacious, tastefully decorated with details that impress like the fresh flower pots, very comfortable armchairs (especially after a long walk on the beach) and a clever system of curtains that keep the morning sun away.
Everything and I mean everything was exceptionally clean and in the right place which suggests caring and attention to detail. Also, linens were superb! Breakfast was continental with fresh fruit platter, pastries and cheese. Judy was very helpful and discreet and she suggested a great place for dinner. Napier is a great place to visit and Manor On Parade is the place to stay!
