I stayed for three nights in a studio room. Wow! I thought I must have been upgraded as the room was large with a king size bed and round spa pool that would fit three people. Separate clean bathroom with shower. Great cooking facilities not that I used them. The staff were very friendly. Other family members stayed in a... More

Everything you expect in a well appointed motel: clean, friendly, very handy for the centre of Havelock and easy to find and park in. A spa bath and great to, alarm clock radio, ample fridge and well put together guide including charge back for many delivered food options. Great!

Stayed 2 nights and just loved the location. Both mornings we walked into the village for breakfast - it only took a minute to get there. The staff just let you get on with your stay - we never saw them except when we checked in and checked out! Everything was very easy on both occasions. Nice rooms with a... More

Our stay here was near perfect. The room was amazing with a wonderful round spa bath as a welcome surprise. The bed wasn't just 2 singles pushed together as often is the case, it was a true king bed. The balcony was nicely available with tables & chairs. I would totally recommend this motel :)

The motel was booked for us so it was a pleasant surprise when we found it clean, comfortable and very close to the Havelock North supermarket and town centre. I especially want to mention the staff who made it a pleasant stay.

It is walking distance to the village with loads of cafes/restaurants to choose from. We stayed in unit 20 which is... More

There are many motels to choose from in the Havelock North area and I was very very happy with this one. The location couldn't be any closer to the shopping hub of Havelock North with its numerous cafes, high end clothing shops and the more mundane supermarket, post office, lotto shop. Although the motel is close to the road, noise... More

We stayed at the Village Motel for three nights. It is in great spot with an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Very clean and well kept and king size beds comfortable with lots of pillows. Cosy and warm. Great service and everything amenity you need. Downside wifi kept dropping out and rooms a little dark. Also a bit sparse... More

The manager was welcoming and friendly, but obviously busy. The room wasn't as nice as presented on the wotif webpage, but it was very clean. We found it very strange to have the spa bath in the bedroom and the jets must have been turned down as they were not strong enough to even create bubbles in the water. Be... More

Everything is so clean and tidy and the owner so helpful and friendly. The room is spacious with great appliances and comfortable chairs and bed. No disturbing noises and a great nights sleep after a long day of travel. Even room for a table and 2 chairs without it being squashed. Will definitely stay here again when we travel that... More
