A tidy and clean motor lodge. Reception were very helpful and the lodge feels fairly new. We received some Wifi vouchers which was great. I thought for the rate the room was very satisfactory. I only have one small observation. I feel the decor and atmosphere was somewhat lacking. It would warm the place up if there were more "wine"... More

We have been coming to Havelock North and staying at Wine Country Lodge for many years. We have always found the accommodation and management at the Motor Inn outstanding. We cannot understand some of the bad comments left by other travellers. The things that matter to us are: the units are modern and clean, tidy and warm, the bed is... More

We enjoyed our stay at Wine Country Lodge. We have stayed here prior and happy to return. Very quiet and relaxing. Room was spacious, clean and only negative being bed was not comfortable and lack of cooking facilities so we used the bbq each night.

Nice rooms to stay in, apart from the awful man who manages the place. We asked nicely for a late check out, but only if it was possible, we said to him more than once it was fine if the answer was no. He eventually said we could have an hour but if we were a minute over he would... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over the weekend of The Mission Concert. it was comfortable, quiet and a great location for going to visit the wineries and beaches in the area. When you book remember there are units upstairs or on the ground floor so if you don't want to climb stairs make sure you say so when booking.

Interesting to see the mixed reviews here as we had a great experience. Because we arrived late, I phoned ahead and the room key was left out for us. The unit was spotlessly clean, appliances and kitchen kit was in great condition and the price was really reasonable for our stay. The staff were cheery when we checked out in... More

My wife and I were spending our first Christmas and New Years back home in more than ten years. Due to a last minute family health scare, we were in the position of finding one nights accommodation in either Havelock North, or Napier, less than 15 minutes apart. I called this place several days before we were due to be... More

These people got angry and confrontational with us because we would not sell our room for 1 night at a very busy time. On our Duty motel site it was showing all motels in the area as being full and that is what we told him. A very one sided review. More

We stayed here over Christmas. It was a lovely, clean motel, with friendly staff. They have a lovely pool which the children loved. It has a nice seating area around with some shade which is important in the heat.

Didn't even get to stay at this place. We booked a 2 b/room apartment for 6 people and was quote $290.00 $50 for 2 extra people, when in fact it should have been $40 going by their website. We only booked 48hrs in advanced but then had to cancel approx 16 hrs later due to my father being rushed to... More

When you booked we sent you a confirmation with our cancellation policy clearly displayed. At busy times when we have turned other people away and would have otherwise been full, in your case someone had cancelled before we offered it to you, then you agreed to take the room so we can't offer it to anyone else. We do understand... More

What a way to make money - Charge you for 2 nights when only staying 1 just because we were arriving on xmas day and was told they couldnt check us in on the 25th. My mother was paying for the room as family was home from overseas and not enough room to bunk down at her place as she... More
