Just returned from our 8th year at this absolutely and truly wonderful hotel. We always feel like its home from home. Dave and Ann are personable but professional and after all these years we now consider them to be part of our extended family. Nothing changes the rooms are immaculately clean, the dining area pristine and 'Dave's' breakfasts are amongst... More

Because of a problem at the hotel we originally booked we were offered accomodation at The Havelock. It was the best thing that could have happened to us! I have stayed in hotels in at least a dozen different Countries and this one is up there with the best. The decor and cleanliness are second to none, the staff are... More

Everything about this place is amazing. The rooms are very clean, neat and well decorated. The staff is very sweet and lovely, the breakfast is delicious and there is so much to choose from, we could definitely skip lunch ;) The children loved the pool, which was warm et clean, ideal swim after a busy day! Highly recommended, we can't... More

A great destination, fully deserving its reputation. Will certainly go again when in the area. Clean, well managed and nothing is too much trouble. Agree with previous reviewers that a full breakfast avoids the necessity for food until evening!

This was our first stay at the Havelock and definately won't be our last. Hotel was immaculate and extremely comfortable, hosts made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was 10/10 plenty to choose from and excellent quality. All areas of the hotel were clean and comfortable and we were sorry when our trip came to... More

Last week I was sitting up at... More

The previous review by myscimitar, apart from being written by a semi-literate, is unnecessarily damaging to the Bunneys, the proprietors of The Havelock. We stay at The Havelock twice a year when visiting an elderly relative on the island. It is not the cheapest B&B and it is certainly not the most expensive. What it does provide is excellent levels... More
