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.

Great rooms with spa bath. Super-helpful and friendly staff worked to help me make the most of my short time in Havelock North. Motel is on the ring right by the central business district, and is less than five minutes from a grocery store, petrol station, and lots of restaurants and cafes and shopping. Highly recommended. *Note: there is construction... More

Friendly owner, clean and tidy suites, huge comfy bed and love the big spa bath ( we had the deluxe studio). I stay here for work as well, and have always been impressed with the place as a good solid motel to stay at. This time around it was very noisy because of the building work going on across the...

The Lodge is located right next to the shops making it a great base for a stroll out for brunch etc… The room was large, clean, and the bed was awesome. I didn't make use of it but the spa bath looked great too. Unfortunately there is ongoing construction just across the road which was incredibly noisy. If you plan... More

We had a function to attend nearby and as we preferred not to drive, chose this motel...perfect. We were within easy walking distance to Village but it was also quiet. The room was large and spacious, even though a spa pool in the corner... bathroom also although that needed a tiny bit of paint touch-up. The bed huge and comfortable... More

Just few steps from the centre of Havelock North, it has nice rooms with a huge spa bath (looks like more a spa pool!) right in a corner of the room, perfect for relaxing a bit before going off for dinner in one of the many restaurants around. Rooms have a full kitchen too. Very good value for money and... More

We had a studio room which was very clean and spacious. Originally we had an upstairs unit but as we had out 11 week old son with us I asked if we could swap to a ground studio (due to all the additional luggage!!) The room was very spacious and there was plenty of room to put up the portacot.... More

We arrived to be told to expect a storm in the next day or two. Well we knew it was windy as we were on the top floor with a balcony facing north. The wind was about 60km/h and to our surprise it was warm. The storm duly came and went on the second night and we didn't even feel... More
