My wife and I, with our 2 kids aged 3 and 1, stayed for 3 nights at Bellbird Cottage (the 2 bedroom one), in May 15. The cottage was in great condition and very well equipped, including providing basic breakfast stuff (milk, bread, spreads, eggs, etc) on arrival which was a nice touch. The cottage is small but very comfortable,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in March 2015 whilst visiting the area with our friends who had emigrated from the UK. Just lovely clean and tranquil cottages. We got up graded to the 2 bedroom one as other guests had stayed on longer than planned in other one bedroom one- don't blame them. This is a beautiful area of NZ... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Colonial Cottages in Clive. What a treat!! The accommodation is perfect for a stay in the Hawkes Bay as it is close to both Napier and Hastings , with easy access to the bike trails , which was what we wanted. We had the two bedroom cottage and while the... More

Lovely spot in between Napier and the vineyards outside Havelock North and only a short walk to the beach. Stayed in the Bellbird 2 bedroom suite. Beds very comfortable and lounge/kitchen area perfect for a short stay. The cottages are located in the middle of a beautifully landscaped garden with chairs outside to enjoy the weather. Owner very friendly and... More

I must admit, when we turned off the main road into the driveway I thought the place somewhat remote! We'd splashed out on a couple of expensive evening meals in Taupo, but we were looking for a bit of luxury in the accomodation department... And we found it! Two guys travelling together both had a great double bedroom & the... More

Thanks heaps for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and found the location ideal for golf at Cape Kidnappers. My apologies with having to store some gear in your car, there is actually a sneaky alcove under the beds that is handy for those extra items. I thought I had put this in our welcome books... More

We spent 2 nights in Tui Cottage and loved it! From the moment we walked through to the beautiful garden into the cottage we felt at home! The cottage is beautifully furnished and equipped, and to have fresh eggs for breakfast provided by the resident chickens was just lovely! We also managed to go on the Gannet Safari which was...
