A warm welcome awaits you at McHardy Lodge, possibly one of the finest historic residences in Napier and now providing elegant accommodation for discerning travellers.
Situated in a quiet cul de sac on exclusive Napier Hill, the house, which was built by Leslie McHardy as an elegant summer residence in the 1890s, has been faithfully restored to its former glory. With a wealth of rich native Kauri timber and antique furnishings, the atmosphere exudes luxury and warmth.
McHardy Lodge is conveniently situated for visiting Hawkes Bay wineries, Art Deco Napier and the wide range of dining experiences of Napier and Ahurriri.
The suites at McHardy Lodge are dressed with fine furnishings and linens, with luxurious beds to sink into and relax. Spacious bathrooms feature claw foot or deep tub baths and large showers, making them the ideal place to relax and unwind. Beauty therapies, manicures, pedicures and relaxation massage can be arranged in the privacy of your room.
Relaxation is not confined to your suite. You can lounge around the pool or on one of the extensive verandahs – 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.
Join us for all Hawke’s Bay has to offer during the renowned long warm summers. Spoil yourself with a spring, autumn or winter break, relaxing in front of our log fires with a glass of Hawke’s Bay’s finest wines from our wine list.
Choose your ideal escape, and then simply contact us to arrange your experience of a luxury residence with service and hospitality from a bygone age.
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.
