Great spot close to Napier and Hastings as well as havelock north so lots on the doorstep. The cottages are lovely and very welcoming. The gardens are beautifully tended and the facilities just great. To top it all, the hosts were delightful and we are really looking forward to our return trip planned in the summer. Highly recommend these cottages... More

The welcome, warm and generous. The beds were fantastic. The kitchen was fully functional with every utensil you need. Nice touches were supplies for breakfast for the first... More

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.
