We stayed two nights at Clive Colonial Cottages when visiting the Napier / Hawke’s Bay area of New Zealand. The cottage we stayed in, Fantail Cottage, was immaculate. I would offer that Clive Colonial Cottages are perfect for a stay in the Hawke’s Bay area. Great location, well appointed and with a comfortable bed affording the best night’s sleep since leaving home some two weeks before!
