Hi. On a recent business trip to the Hawkes Bay I stayed at the Cottages for 3 nights - this was perfect. Great location, great rooms - clean, modern and tidy. The feel of the place is fantastic and the hosts couldn't do enough to help. In all - 10 out of 10 and when I am down again in... More

An absolutely delightful place to stay. Immaculate inside the cottages, free wifi & best of all free citrus fruits from the trees. Close to some great wineries and only 20 mins from Napier. The owners are super friendly and helpful. It's the third time we've stayed here & again fantastic.

My second visit. It's a great place to stay. Friendly people, a beautiful location close to Napier and Hastings. Nothing beats sitting on the deck eating farm eggs on toast and a mug of tea, listening to the birds - best way to start the day!

My husband and I stayed with our four-year old daughter for three nights over Easter, and had an absolutely magnificent time. The two-bedroom cottage was just magic - so much so that when it came time to leave there were very nearly tears! The cottage is incredibly quiet, with a beautiful garden setting - very restful. The hosts couldn't do... More

We were looking for accommodation in the Hawkes Bay area which would be quiet and away from main roads and comfortable and rural. We found it. A small but perfectly formed development of three lovely cottages in a garden setting adjacent to but separate from the owners bungalow with ripe figs and citrus fruit to pick and herbs to hand....

We stayed for 3 nights at the Tui Cottage and it was wonderful, very clean with all the amenities you could wish for. Sandra and Neil our hosts were very welcolming and never seemed to stop working. We would certainly have no reservations about recommending Clive Colonials for your stay in Hawkes Bay,

Lovely stay in these quiet, charming cottages in Hawke's Bay. Very clean with modern bathroom and walk in shower. Extremely helpful owners and great location for visiting Napier and the vineyards. Good welcome pack for breakfast, barbecue area and an outdoor chess board.

This is a super place to stay to discover the wineries of Hawkes Bay. We stayed with Kiwi friends in the two one bedroom cottages. They are very well equipped and set in a quiet garden courtyard.

Four of us had a delightful stay in Fantail and Tui. The cottages were a perfect base for us to explore the beautiful Hawkes Bay region. Spectacular sunset upon arrival! Thanks to our engaging hosts (and their boys) who were always willing to help with whatever we needed.
