Close to country is the famous Bay View Hotel, Napier. A large friendly hotel/inn and new motel and holiday park only 7 km from Napier CBD, offering great food, refreshments and a accommodation with hospitality guaranteed.
On Tuesday November 5th 1861 William Villers opened the Bay View Hotel (named then the Petane Hotel). It was the largest country hotel in the district and was a well known landmark to travellers on the road. In the old days it was the last change of horses for the coaches travelling between Wairoa & Napier.
The original hotel was destroyed by fire, and the present hotel was rebuild around 50 years ago with the addition of our games bar 1973. It is still the largest country hotel in Hawke's bay.
Our hotel is situated in a quiet little village 8 km from Napier City center only 800 metres from the beach.
