Having stayed several times previously and not done a review .... We often stay here and only stay elsewhere when unavailable. We like the upstairs units as the very large patio's are lovely in addition to the rooms. Whilst not private each room does have table and chairs, Nice for a quite wine in the evening after a nice dinner... More

We stopped here after a very long working day. Nice big modern room, very clean, lots of easy parking and at a reasonable rate. Central location. Friendly and helpful hosts. Perfect for what we needed.

We had a 2 night stay in a room with a spa bath. The balcony is shared & not private. The room was large & spotless. Tony very kindly rang me to inform me that I had left some clothes in the wardrobe. The rooms are serviced daily. The air con was a blessing. A very nice motel with easy... More

The large studio room. Well appointed room with extra large king bed (very comfortable). Our was by a main road but quiet enough for a good nights sleep. Little pricey going on the room (one bedroom ) we stayed in at Hastings a couple of nights later .

We recently had Christmas with family in Havelock North so wanted to stay somewhere central and comfortable with everything we needed. The Village has very friendly staff who know all about the eateries in the area. The rooms are large with every possible amenity, including huge comfortable bed ( I'm pretty fussy and I loved the bed), a fab spa... More

The facilities are good especially the spa bath in our room which our grand children adore. The rooms are large and well appointed and the motel's position is great... More

We thought Havelock North was a really nice little place to stay in. Our motel room did the job - large, clean and with a good spa bath which was a nice touch. Walls were painted rather a dark colour but we didn't spend much time in the room so it was ok for sleeping in. Large comfortable bed, flat... More

The Village Motel is always my accommodation preference when staying in Hastings/Havelock North area. I had 4 rooms booked for a recent visit as I was travelling with work colleagues & had to cancel 1 room at the last minute. This was no problem to the ever helpful owner, Tony Evans. Good sized rooms, well appointed & an excellent location... More
