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

My husband and myself stayed at this amazing BB in March 2014. Well it was such a welcoming and home from home stay. The room was excellent the best nights rest ever. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice and Mike's home made bread was very tasty, and meeting other guest and swapping information about where they had been.... More

My husband and myself stayed at this delightfull Bedandbreakfast in the Hawkes bay area for three nights. it was very close to the winerys and Havelock north which has a nice village for shopping. The bedrooms are very large and the decor very simple but comfortable, although for the size of the room the tv was far to small. The... More

This is not an inexpensive B&B but worth every penny I pay for. I stayed here for one night. The property is absolutely stunning and the guest lounge was simple but tastefully decorated, as are the rooms. Mike is a great host and he is also very friendly. Breakfast was awesome.

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
