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 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!

As part of a group, we were booked into this motel for four nights, the longest stay of anywhere on our tour. How lucky we were to land there! Mark was so pleasant and helpful, with everything from recommending restaurants to giving us a tour of the laundry facilities! The rooms were spacious and clean, the breakfasts were gourmet, and...

An immaculately clean, well appointed motel right in the middle of Havelock North. Mark was very helpful both with the original reservation & with ideas for day trips during our stay. Would highly recommend & will stay here again.
