McHardy Lodge is a Qualmark 5 star rated luxury Bed and Breakfast villa nestled in a quiet residential cul-de-sac.

McHardy Lodge offers a choice of four deluxe Super King Suites, one of these can be configured to 2xKing singles and two standard Queen Bed Rooms. All our luxurious Suites have large well-proportioned rooms dressed with the finest linens and furnishings, claw foot or deep tub baths and access to outdoor decks and verandas. The Lodge is one of Napier's finest historic residences and offers expansive views of the Pacific Ocean and Kaweka Ranges.

Relaxation is not confined to your suite. You can lounge around the heated swimming pool or on one of the extensive verandas - the views of the blue Pacific Ocean and mountain ranges in the distance will beguile you. Enjoy a game on our full size billiards table in the billiard room, or snuggle up in the library in front of the fire. The choice is yours.

Napier is recognised as being the Art Deco capital of the world and McHardy Lodge is located just a short drive (or 15 minute walk) into the centre of town where you can enjoy the variety of building styles of the 1930's. It’s another easy walk to the rejuvenated Ahuriri district with funky new restaurants and bars enjoying relaxing water views.

The famous Napier Botanical Gardens are a few minute’s walk from the lodge, and hot spa pools, the beach, the National Aquarium of New Zealand, wineries and dozens of golf courses, including the award winning Cape Kidnappers, are all within easy reach.

Napier and the Hawkes Bay region is New Zealand’s oldest wine region and is home to over 70 vineyards - most within an easy drive of McHardy Lodge. Napier also is home to many award-winning restaurants, many of them located at the wineries or nearby Ahuriri.

Whether it is merely a break from life’s pressures, a special holiday, a celebration you want to make so much more special, or you are planning the ideal start to married life together – we will ensure you have an experience you will treasure. McHardy Lodge is available for exclusive use for your party.
