Our apartment at the Village Motel was spacious, clean, modern, well furnished, and well heated, and with a bed that looked big enough for the entire All Blacks team! It was huge! It was also extremely comfortable with a good firm mattress (I hate soft soggy beds - bad for the back). There was a bedside radio alarm with ipod/iphone socket, and there were plenty of other sockets for any other electrical equipment - laptops etc. The wifi access is good. There is a large flat screen tv - but as NZ TV is atrocious we didn't use it! The room also boasted an alcove with a large spa pool. The bathroom (wetroom) was as spacious and well presented as the rest of the apartment. We were provided with loads of large fluffy white towels that were changed every day, and lovely towelling bathrobes. And yes - they really do provide dark flannels for removing makeup and even for cleaning shoes!The apartment had a small kitchen unit with twin radiant hotplate, microwave and fridge and more than adequate crockery, cutlery etc. This was more than adequate to prepare a simple meal and Havelock has plenty of cafes and restaurants only a couple of minutes walk away, as well as a good New World supermarket. The Motel also offers a breakfast service for those who prefer not to make their own. Our room was on the upper deck with access on to the terrace walkway with a table and chairs. It faced over the village towards TeMata peak and it was nice to sit in the sun and relax a while there with my Kindle. The Motel is set back from the road so traffic was rarely disturbing. The Village Motel is excellently situated in Havelock North, very close to all the shops, cafes and restaurants. It makes an ideal base for anyone with business in Hastings and Napier. It is also a good base for those interested in visiting the region's many wineries. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, and we would certainly recommend The Village Motel to anyone visiting the area.
