I stayed for 2 weekend nights and enjoyed a warm room, a very comfortable bed and beautifully clean facilities. Most of all, however, the service was very friendly - not only pointing out places to eat (the village and shops are just across the road) but posting back my hairdryer inadvertently left in the room. Above and beyond - very... More

This motel is well-located for shops and restaurants in Havelock North. Unfortunately it backed on to the Heavy Traffic bypass so traffic noise was not ideal early in the morning. There was also a construction site on one side of the property. However, the bed was comfortable.

A great place to stay in Havelock North. The location is super-central, the hosts are friendly (and flexible with check-in times) and the rooms are well-equipped. The free Wi-Fi and newspaper were a bonus. The heat pump is also a good feature. It's basic "no-frills" accommodation, but great value if you are just after a clean bed and a good... More

The motel is very centrally located in town within easy walking distance of various restaurants, bars and shops and has free parking onsite within an enclosed courtyard (i.e. out of sight of the road). There are a few room options - we booked a one bedroom suite for $155 per night which gave a living area and separate bedroom with... More

I stay here a few times every year. It is right in the middle of Havelock North so you can walk to dinner easily. Mark and Amanda the owners are super helpful and really welcoming. There is a good selection of DVDs, the rooms are always clear and are very spacious.

The location in the centre of Havelock North is excellent. Very close to pubs, restaurants,shops and takeaways. All rooms are on the ground floor. The room was a bit tired and could either be bright and very hot from the sun or cooler and gloomy with curtains closed. We were in a one bed unit and it was OK if... More

We stayed 3 nights over Easter in a studio unit and it was excellent. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and the bed comfortable. The location is fantastic and owners friendly and helpfully. I would certainly stay here again.

Great place to stay for a family. Friendly and helpful staff, great amenities and rooms. Excellent location. You are right in the centre of the village. If you don't like it here, you're way too hard to please!
