This is a very relaxing and carefully considered place to stay. John appears to have thought of everything to put guests at their ease and to make them comfortable. I would rate this as the best place I have stayed. If you are looking for a peaceful place to say, set in a large garden amid orchards of apples and... More

St Andrews is an immaculately kept and delightful place to relax in a beautifully planned and planted estate with lots of interesting private areas to just chill or wander. The host is friendly and helpful and serves a magnificent, healthy breakfast. Very good value for this standard of accommodation - we will be back.

We stayed at St. Andrew's Escape for two nights for a wedding and visit to a winery and we could not have been happier. There are lovely well-tended gardens, a terrific large spa tub, and a large indoor common area with full kitchen facilities where breakfast is served each morning. And what a breakfast! Freshly baked croissants one morning and... More

I stayed at St Andrews Escape for 2 nights while I was working in Hawkes Bay last week. Everything was perfect, the gardens, my room, the location and the facilities. John was a fantastic host and provided the best breakfasts ever! I will definitely be back for a weekend away with the hubby!

This enchanting property is an absolute delight with it secret nooks, gardens and charm. Our bungalow was self contained,very, very private and comfortable. The communal lodge has a glorious outlook, beautifully designed with all the mod cons and more. Would love to return again. Keep up the good work!

St. Andrews Escape was truly an escape. It was situated on beautifully landscaped grounds amidst orchards on the outskirts of Havelock North. While some of the rooms are small (we upgraded to the Pacific Room when we saw the size of the room that we originally booked) the emphasis here is on the outdoors. There are rose gardens to stroll... More

This really is a awesome place to stay. The owners are fantastic and the place beautiful. The gardens are well maintained and the free breakfast is always a bonus. Will definitely go back. Highly recommended. We just wish we had longer to spend there.

Very convieniently located and a thousand miles from woe. Saint Andrew's Escape is just that, a wonderful oasis of lush gardens, fantastic communal spaces and ample private spots to gaze at views or each other. The Pacific room where we stayed is warm and inviting with an amazing mural across the ensuite glass walls offering privacy and an unique experience... More
