We stayed at Channel Lights when we were in Havelock to attend a family reunion. Channel Lights exceeded our expectations and our only wish was that we could stay longer than we had booked. The facilities were first rate and nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. They were warm, welcoming and so keen to make sure that our... More

We are still not satiated after five visits to Channel Lights, each visit exceptional. The two units are very comfortably furnished and serviced daily to the highest standard. One would not find a more superb bathroom in a six star hotel Every facility is offered including laundry. It is most enjoyable to sit in comfort with a glass of Sauvignon... More

Having read previous reviews on this accommodation, our expectations were high. And we were definitely not disappointed! Everything - the comfy bed, the huge modern bathroom, the leather sofa and chairs, the private terrace, the kitchen including a dishwasher (yes, really!) was better than in most highly rated hotel rooms. Chris and Philly are such welcoming hosts. They have the... More

Channel Lights exceeded our expectations. A welcome respite from a hectic couple of weeks travelling NZ - we stayed three nights and could have stayed more! A spacious room appropriately appointed to make the most of what the harbour had to offer and a bathroom the right size to accommodate both of us and all our bits and pieces made... More

Chris met us as we pulled up as Philly was busy. He showed us to our accommodation which overlooked the marina. Big comfortable chairs inside as well as outside to sit in and watch the boats coming and going. So relaxing. Everything in the accommodation was top notch (Philly explained it was set up as she would want it if... More

Very clean and modern rooms, nice view at the bay and the harbour, own terrace with chairs to have a great breakfast outside. Whirlpool in the bathroom. :-) Philippa and Chris are absolutely fantastic hosts. Her kindness overwhelmed us! Our best accomodation in New Zealand! Liesa and Steffen

20 'excellent' reviews on here says it all - Channel Lights is a very special place run by very special people. From the moment that Philippa came to meet us at the bus stop to when she kindly dropped us back there four days later we had an absolutely lovely time. The view from the room is just mesmerising. It's... More

We stayed at Channel Lights for one night last week. It's a super spot, with the most welcoming owners you are ever likely to meet. The room was a delight. Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. A stand out was the bathroom which was pure luxury. We enjoyed the view of the marina and of course the channel lights! Only a... More

Without question, Channel Lights is one of the two finest B & B type accommodations in which my wife and I have ever stayed in all our travels across 48 of the 50 US states and numerous countries. There are only two guestrooms in the house built six years ago. Chanel Lights was a B & B, but has now... More
