My wife and I enoyed a superb weekend at Havelock House. It certainly exceeded our expectations. The weather played it's part and allowed us to enjoy early mornings outside in the lovely gardens. Our accomodation was very clean and well presented and the whole stay was topped off by super hosts Diane and Jeff. We will certainly be back. Margaret & Russell
Diana is a super host - with a very friendly, warm persona. She is very knowledgeable of her local area and her recommendations for dining and sightseeing were very spot on. There was also a lot of reference material / guides-maps available on hand which was very appreciated. Our room was clean and tastefully decorated and warm with the heating on; the beds were very comfortable (firm but I like that) and included lovely linen & comfortable pillows. The stay was for 2 nights and the breakfast dining was most enjoyable. Due to a personal food allergy, she also went out of her way to cater to specific needs and this meant a lot. Thank you again Diana & Jeff.
What a lovely place to stay. Diana and Jeff are lovely hosts who gave us a warm welcome and some helpful advice on places to visit and places to eat. Diana also serves a very good breakfast.The property has a bit of character and is set in beautiful gardens. It's a short, picturesque and traffic free drive into the village which has a good range of reasonably priced restaurants and a great bakery. Co-incidentally, we were there during the Napier Art Deco festival which gave some added interest to our visit. Overall, Havelock House is a great place to stay, and being slightly off the beaten track it makes for a very relaxing environment.
So about a mile outside Havelock North a great B&B with lovely bedroom overlooking the garden The owners couldn’t do enough for you with advice on things to do and even organised a small VIP wine tour for us. Great location for Hawke’s Bay vineyards Great breakfast Little gem
We have visited Havelock House twice, in 2017 and 2019, and found the hosts and the accommodation first class in every respect. The rooms available are terrific and the breakfasts most enjoyable. Jeff and Diana will give you a warm welcome and are a most engaging couple, providing lots of advice about things to do and places to see in Hawkes Bay. We have found Havelock House a home-from-home, family friendly place to stay and would return in a heartbeat. We can confirm that high summer in Hawkes Bay at Havelock House is truly irrestistible.
