This beautiful home provided everything. Chris, our host, was very warm and friendly and full of local knowledge and information. Nothing was too much trouble even down to reserving a restaurant for us. Our bedroom was beautifully furnished, spacious, very clean and the bed most comfortable. The ensuite was also modern and roomy. There was a large and comfortable lounge...

Chris is a fantastic hostess. We drove to Napier from Wanganui after a work-day on a rainy evening, so arrived at 9:30pm. She was thoughtful enough to leave us some soup packets in case we hadn't stopped to eat anything along the way and had put on the fireplace in the living room to make it cozy if we wanted...

Just as the reviews promised, Masion Bearnaise was a fantastic place to stay while I was studying at the Eastern Institute of Technology in Hawkes Bay. Chris is an exceptional hostess, and her breakfasts and local knowledge are rightfully renowned. The rooms are spacious and clean, the location is quiet, and the garden (in season) is a gorgeous and special...

Maison Bearnaise is located towards the top of Bluff Hill and so has a beautiful view across Hawkes Bay (when the clouds cleared) but is a bit of a steep walk back from Napier town centre. Our room was large, very comfortable and spotlessly clean with a shared common living area. The owner, Chris, was exceptional warm and friendly and...

Maison Bearnaise is what you imagine when you think of the perfect B&B. The rooms and the home are lovely. There is a comfortable living room setup to enjoy. And the grounds and gardens are absolutely gorgeous! Not to mention great home-cooked breakfasts. But the owner Chris is what sets apart Maison Bearnaise. She couldn't be nicer or more helpful....

Maison Bearnaise is one of those B&B which gives you a feeling of being at home. Christine as host does an impressive job - the hospitality was great and she fulfilled all our wishes.

If you're looking for a relaxing home all the positives -- charming hostess, lovely rooms, spectacular garden with lovely view, close to Napier but quiet location -- you'll find what you're looking for at Maison Bearnaise. My husband and I have traveled to New Zealand repeatedly from the west coast of the United States over the past 15 years, and...

We have traveled to New Zealand seven times, staying almost exclusively in B&Bs. Of all the wonderful places we have stayed, Maison Béarnaise is our favorite. We made a special trip to Napier on this visit to see Chris (Christine) and Graham again -- and to re-visit Napier and the nearby Hawke's Bay vineyards. Maison Béarnaise is a lovely home...

Maison Bearnaise is a beautiful 100 year old villa on the bluff with views of the sea. Christine is a lovely lady, very passionate about her country. At breakfast every morning, she would help us plan our itinerary for the day, recommending places to visit and those to avoid! She would even recommend driving routes that took in the most...

We stopped at the Napier Tourist Office and chose this B&B by chance more than anything. However, we were lucky: it turned out to be lovely. Situated high above the town on France Road, it is a nice spot to be located. Nearby are great views across Napier. It is a convenient short drive from the downtown area. Christine's hospitality...
