We had a 2 night stay en route to Wellington. Despite arriving rather early We were made very welcome and were able to settle in with coffee before going out for the afternoon. The House is very comfortable and roomy with bags of character with plenty of places to relax both inside and out. What makes this place so special... More

The other reviews tell it all. Paul and Debbie are wonderful, the house, accommodations and surroundings are wonderful. They recommended going to the Craggy Range Winery for dinner and it was an unforgettable experience.

Very laid back atmosphere and the hosts are knowledgeable and helpful in suggesting places to eat, getting taxis etc,.

They are genuinely friendly, interesting and engaging hosts with good recommendations for places to eat and things to do. The breakfasts are fantastic with lots of home made or local produce. The fruit salad was just so... More

We truly enjoyed every minute of our stay! Debbie and Paul were amazing hosts! Their home is beautiful....inside and out. Definitely some of the absolute best breakfasts, coffees, and evening wine/nibbles during our trip! Great location for checking out the wonderful Hawkes Bay region.

Absolutely stunning location in the Hawkes Bay region of NZ. Immaculately presented rooms, outstanding service and hospitality. Overall, a delightful experience with fabulous hosts. The tranquility and beauty of the property were such a delight and provided a retreat to "get away from it all".

We spent four wonderful nights at Hawthorne House, eating, relaxing, cycling, and wine tasting. Sampling the best of Hawkes Bay, and Hawthorne House definitely fits into that category. Nothing was too much trouble for Debbie and Paul, from a beautiful fresh breakfast that set us up for the day through to organising any bookings. And yes, the rooms are exquisite!

What should've been a lovely drive form Rotorua was made not so by awful weather - mist, fog, driving rain and drizzle. What a joy to find Hawthorne House and our wonderful hosts Paul and Debbie. The house is gorgeous, we did not want to leave - in fact we bought some salad and things from Debbie's recommended supermarket and... More

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful house, we were treated as valued guests in Debbie and Paul's home. They quite simply could not have done more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. I can mention the tea and cake on arrival, the drinks and delicious nibbles on the veranda, the breakfasts which were second to none, the... More
