Fodor's Expert Review Mon Logis
415 Marine Parade, Napier, Hawke's Bay, 4110, New Zealand
Built in the 1860s and one of the few houses that escaped destruction in 1931, this splendid mansion–cum–boutique hotel feels like a little piece of France. Its front windows overlook the ocean and distant Cape Kidnappers; in the guest rooms, white matchboard ceilings hover above white bedspreads and lace-trimmed pillowcases. Gallic host Gerard Averous is passionate in his desire to ensure his guests are comfortable and enjoy their visit. Breakfast can include freshly baked croissants and a French omelet.
