Very pleasant stay and Mike was friendly and helpful with advice about Hawkes Bay. He contacted us after we had checked out to tell us we had left some clothes behind and then sent them to us. The breakfasts were excellent and varied. Our room was spacious and comfortable, but we did find it a bit dark, even with the... More

Mike and Mel made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived, and they readily provided sound advice on visiting the surrounding area, including specifics for Napier and The Mission Winery. Their breakfasts were excellent and imaginative, with great alternatives to the full English breakfasts of which we were tiring during our extended NZ travels. Accommodations in the moved and...

We had two wonderful nights at Hawthorne House in February. Great hosts and great food, The house has some great history and so too does the site it now stands on. Very handy to the best wineries and golf courses.

This beautiful B & B is more like a small luxury hotel. The four bedrooms are spacious and elegant, all with ensuites and luxury bed linen. The lounge area is large enough to share with other guests and still have private space if desired, and the gardens are a pleasure to look at......then you have Mike!! Thankyou very much for... More

If you love B&B's this property is for you. The "guest" side of the residence is quite separate from the hosts side, which gives a feeling of sharing a beautiful old Victorian with comfortable common spaces and lovely garden, without intruding into your hosts personal space. The grounds are large and lovely, a spacious deck is perfect for enjoying the... More

We stayed at this superb and rather expensive luxury B&B for three nights in January 2014. Mike gave us a very warm welcome and looked after our every need during our stay. The room was enormous, the bed comfortable, the bathroom modern and practical, and the grounds a pleasure to wander around. The breakfasts were outstandingly good and the dinners... More

We only stayed one night, and regretted not spending more in this gorgeous victorian home on beautiful property in Hawkes Bay region. Restored Victorian with big bright rooms, porches, nice sitting areas surrounded by wonderful old trees and many flowers. Mike was great host. Great breakfast.

Hawthorne House is a beautiful accommodation in Hastings. Our host Mike was always attentive to our needs and arranged a great "On Yer Bikes" tour through the Hawke's Bay vineyards that was a great way to enjoy the area. He provided a sumptuous breakfast with the best ever home made muffins as well as evening wine and munchies. when we... More
