This was our second time at the Havelock Motels and this time was even better than the last time. The owners have built a new BBQ deck overlooking the pool which we enjoyed 2 of our dinners at while the kids were playing in the pool below. There is a table tennis table which our kids spent a far bit... More

Great little couples retreat only 1 hour from Nelson! New heated pool was great for the morning swim before enjoying the sweet views of Marlborough sounds. Even managed a couple of games of table tennis in the new TV room and a BBQ on the deck. Recommend.

Went here last year and loved it so much that we went back! Is even better this year with a games room and BBQ area near the beautiful pool area and hot tub. Kids loved the pool, and I loved the sun loungers! Rooms very clean and friendly and helpful staff. Recommend!!

Best feature I would have to say was the heated mineral pools and hot tub which were in a well planned beautiful setting and had a lovely big bbq area. Rooms were extremely clean and tidy. Service was awesome, very friendly helpful staff. A pub right next door which done very nice inexpensive meals. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting... More

We hadn't planned on staying in Havelock but we're so impressed we decided to stay two nights. The service here is wonderful. The room is the perfect size for a couple & has all the necessary items for an overnight stay or a week. The complex is modern & given that it is a few years old now I was... More

The room was a little compact and dated but the pool area, hot tub and location more than made up for this. The pool and decked area was just lovely,the proprietor Katrina was so helpful and accommodating and our room spotless. A great location to explore the area or take the mailboat for a quirky day out.

We stayed at the first floor level which gave us a large deck space outside the room which was pleasant to utilize the table and chairs. The room was nicely furnished with a large spar in the room and great comfortable lounge chairs. Nice large TV and excellent other fittings

We stayed in the studio unit for two nights because we were going on the Pelorus Mail-boat. We were shown to our unit which was considerably better than being just given the key. The room was very nice with facilities to make a light meal and breakfast. The outdoor area looked a great spot for the warmer weather but unfortunately... More
