We were in the middle of a camping expedition with three dogs when we got rained out near the Sounds. Out of desperation we stopped here to see if they could take us.
The Motels are dog friendly, something that more motels around the country should consider, we stayed two nights and had a great time. The units we stayed in were clean and tidy and there seemed to be a good range of accommodation from older to newer.
The pool area is really good with a high-quality fitout. It also includes a wooden hot tub mineral pool, which was excellent for the aches and pains.
It's next door to the local pub, but we didn't have any problems with noise, and its in the middle of Havelock so you have everything that you need.
The owners were friendly and helpful providing home baking as well. For free.
We'll be back.
