Hawthorne is a lovely Victorian house with four very comfortable guest rooms each with its own terrace. The bathrooms are modern and well equipped. The grounds are spacious with beautiful plantings. There are two very friendly black poodles in residence. The highlight of our visit was Deb and Paul who made us feel like old friends. We arrived at 2... More

We had a too-short three night stay at Hawhorne House in early December. The flowers were in bloom, and the little patio off the room was picture perfect. Debbie and Paul are warm, helpful and made sure we had everything we needed from fresh breakfast to excellent recommendations for dinner. Debbie took care of the reservation and made sure we...

We loved all three nights we spent at this lovely B&B but Christmas was really special. Deb and Paul fixed a gourmet dinner that we enjoyed outside with four other guests. Spending Christmas with six strangers can seem a bit daunting but our hosts put everyone at ease and we had a very memorable experience. The house, gardens, comfortable rooms,... More

After a drive from Rotorua via Hobitton (really good to visit with kids that have seen the movie), we arrived in the Hawks Bay Area. Hidden behind a lawn of trees is Hawthorn House. A beautiful villa surrounded by a colorful garden. As soon as you enter, the holiday starts. Debby and Paul are very caring and friendly people that... More

Debbie and Paul have recently taken over this B&B and made it a very special experience to stay here. They treat guests as long-lost friends. While the price may seem a bit steep compared to a motel or self contained unit, it is well well worth it. Breakfasts are cooked with the finest ingredients including eggs collected from their own...

We visited this hotel just after the change in ownership. Was a fantastic weekend in a hotel in the country on the outskirts of Hastings. New owners were very friendly and were excellent hosts. We were made to feel very welcom. Situated in lovely gardens, the accommodation was great. Rooms were very comfortable with own individual terraces and .ensuites. Breakfast... More

We could not have been more happier with our time at Hawthorn House. Deb and Paul were amazing hosts (great cooks!) and were so friendly and inviting. The room was huge and bathroom clean. The plus was having a lounge to chill out and enjoy some of the wines we purchased at the local wineries. Could not recommend more highly... More

Our room was beautiful and airy with very large windows that opened upwards allowing you to walk through them when open onto a small terrace in the garden. The bed was very comfortable with excellent linens. Our hosts were very friendly and the breakfasts were fresh and well prepared. We had the option of having a local lady chef come... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night in June on our honeymoon and I wish that we had stayed longer! This b&b was such a treat. We stayed in the chestnut room and it was such a nice room with a cute little patio. Before arriving, I had emailed Mike asking for some recommendations of wineries we could... More

Our stay at Hawthorne House was fantastic. Very comfortable and welcoming, with a relaxing and informal air about the place. I would recommend booking in for dinner whilst there as this was very good with some creative twists to the menu - local produce was very evident as well which I believe to be important. If you wish to venture... More
