Just returned from a long weekend at the Havelock. We have stayed there a couple of times now and are never disappointed. The room we stayed in was freshly decorated and had a nice new carpet so everything was clean, fresh and modern. Very comfortable bed. Breakfasts are delicious with plenty of choice. We were made to feel very welcome... More

Just spent 4 nights at the Havelock (7th - 11th May ) as per usual a great stay. Ann & Dave are super hosts. The staff they employ are the best you will encounter at any hotel establishment. The morning resturant team are friendly, have a good knowledge of the Island, and go the extra mile to ensure your holiday... More

Me and and my partner stayed at the Havelock for 3 nights. Hotel was absolutely faultless. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was amazing could not fault anything with brilliant service. All staff so friendly. Great location and right on top of the beach. Ann and Dave were very welcoming could have stayed lot longer. Definitely recommend.

We stayed for 2 nights at The Havelock in April this year with many of our Honda motorbike club members. We were looked after very well and were made to feel at home. Our room was bright and clean with a sea view and balcony and all the usual facilities. The home cooked warm bread was a delight and the... More

We have stayed at The Havelock several times over the years - which says it all really. This time the guest rooms had been given a makeover and everything was looking even brighter and fresher than before.

My son and I spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel on a last-minute spring break. Our room was very comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean. It was a delight to wake up each morning to sunshine, a view of the sea and a feast for breakfast! The location is perfect - right next to the Chine and a 5 minute... More

I cannot complement the propiertiers Ann and Dave enough, from the moment we arrived until we checked out nothing was too much for them.
