Accommodation in Napier
Staying in Napier means unwinding and completely rejuvenating your mind, body and soul. Days begin with farm-style breakfasts and time to do whatever you please. The relaxation should end with comfortable accommodation that allows you to relish the serenity.
Many consider Napier as the gateway to Cape Agulhas as the beaches of Arniston are close by, Bredasdorp is but a stone’s throw away and the most southern tip of Africa is a short drive away. However, the village has a personality of its own and is the ideal place to lose yourself in. Spend a few days, a week or even a month just soaking up a village that still values knowing your neighbour, home-cooked food and fresh air. It is the perfect place to forget what day it is and what is going on in the rest of the world, that feeling like you are truly on holiday.
Staying in town offers proximity to restaurants, coffee shops, galleries and museums. There is little need for a car unless you are heading out to the countryside or planning to visit the coast. However, the centre of ‘town’ does not have the usual connotations as many other towns do. No matter where you are, you are never far from the familiar sounds of the countryside as many locals have some chickens, possibly a horse or some sheep in their yards.
The countryside accommodation allows you to completely immerse yourself in the country with civilisation far from sight and mind. The farms vary from flower and Canola farms to dairy and wheat farms, with your pick of the best view. Some will have dams where fishing or lazing by a pool is one way to while away the day. Hiking, horse riding, fresh produce and sipping local wine by a crackling fire are other ways to enjoy the country life.
The type of accommodation in Napier is predominantly Bed & Breakfast and Self-Catering, but also includes the Hotel that is located next to the church. The Bed & Breakfast and Self-Catering accommodation in Napier is comfortable, airy and nostalgically attractive – as if reminiscent of a quieter, more peaceful time. You are sure to find the perfect spot to make you feel at home as most of the accommodation has gorgeous views and a well-kept garden with some pets roaming about. It is all very intriguing and homely at the same time.
The style of the rooms varies between quirky, traditional and more formal, but all have that feeling of walking into a time long ago. Many have a unique charm that makes them stand out from the rest, like a chicken coop that has been converted into a face-brick loft or the blacksmith’s forge and farm school that now hosts guests. Some B&Bs are even large enough to be converted into a conference facility or wedding venue.
Whether you want accommodation close to the town's attractions, a holistic country experience, pet-friendly accommodation, historical charm, farm-style breakfasts or massages and facials…Napier is the place for you.
