We stayed here recently for 6 days and found it extremely convenient to Havelock North Village. The units were built in the nineties and have been well-maintained. They include a spa bath which is pleasant to use. We found the beds and pillows a bit hard and, combined with the road noise and heat, sleeping was difficult. The motel provides... More

What a wee secret - great accommodation even though close to all local restaurants and shop was quiet and cozy - yes would come back again - the rooms are spacious, with air conditioning and many extras - would recommend to any staying in the bay

We stayed a night at Te Mata lodge while visiting friends. We stayed as 2 adults and 2 kids in a 1 bedroom room (Queen + 2 singles in a separate room). very close to shopping as its right on the edge of town - easy walking. Lots of food options close by.

I love all the motor inn concept in New Zealand. Te Mata Lodge was one of the nicest we visited. We had a one bedroom, which had two twins in it for our son and a living space with a kitchenette and a larger bed for us. I like that set up, as we can put him quietly to bed... More

located at the heart of Hawke's Bay wine country, this quiet motel offers luxuries we'd expect in pricier hotels. Large room, jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower with grab bars and seat, spacious cooking area with well-appointed cupboards give a luxury feel to what other motels consider bare necessities. More delicious touches? Plenty of fluffy bath towels, soaps and creams, and clean,... More

The rooms are large and clean in the middle of the village. We were greeted very warmly and got a lot of help and suggestions of what to do in the region. The whole stay was a joy. I can really recommend this motel.

Our room was surprisingly large. Very clean and comfortable. It was very well equipped and a great location within walking distance to the lovely Havelock North village shops. Service was good. The spa in the room wasn’t too our taste but it was of no issue either way. Would highly recommend for a short stay.

My company chooses this motel and we have an account - thank goodness as I'll be trying to get some work in the Bay to stay again. Very well appointed rooms, couldn't fault the stay. Generous Internet, spa bath good.

Excellent location, with many amenities close by. The room was large and well appointed. Bed was large. Good shower, Only downsides was two of the bathroom towels had some questionable stains on them, which I didn't use. I arrived early to the lodge and the host made me feel like a major inconvenience, only said a couple of words to... More

Nice to be greeted in a genuinely friendly manner by the owner. Room was spacious, very clean with a spa bath and extra large bed. Close to the Village, five minute walk maximum so no need to drive to restaurants. Relatively quiet late in the evening. Well appointed rooms.
