McHardy Lodge is a beautifully restored 19th-century boutique hotel that sits atop Hospital hill on a quiet cul de sac in Napier, New Zealand. Admire the Kauri timber interiors, antique furnishings, plush furniture, and hallways adorned with art. Sink into comfortable beds in your cozy rooms that are elegantly appointed with fine linens, cheerful décor, large attached baths, and complimentary minibars. Lounge in the heated pool or the verandah that affords panoramic vistas of Hawke’s Bay and the mountains in the distance. Play a game of billiards, or settle down in the library for a good read and a fireside chat with friends over fine wines. In the garden, enjoy sumptuous breakfasts that include home-baked bread, and fruits picked from the property.
