Havelock Garden Motel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Havelock
Reviewed April 26, 2012

We stayed here for the third time for 5 nights this time and found it very relaxing. Friendly owners who even folded the washing from the dryer while we were out. We made this our base and explored from here. Quiet clean well equiped units in a pretty garden setting with most welcoming owners.

We Stayed here one night after attending the Havelock mussell festival.The Motel was in the heart of the town but with the bush setting seemed very secluded. Units were modest but well serviced and the hosts very friendly.

Room Tip: Some of the units out the back do not face the beautiful gardens so ask for the ones that do if poss...

We stayed two nights here. The owners were very welcoming a wealth of information on the area. The unit we stayed in was very well equipped and the beds were comfy. we especially liked the setting - full of birds and trees. It is handy ti the famous Mussel restaurant which we would recomment too.

We had a 2 bedroom unit which provided everything we needed. Room was a bit tight when a cot was installed. The surroundings are beautiful - great for kids with ducks, cats, small stream and pond and hey let’s not forget the crickets (much higher pitch than our Mediterranean). The bathtub could have been cleaned more thoroughly and that is why the rating is not excellent - some things are just not excusable. Otherwise good value for money. If you want to experience the Sounds get a boat taxi (some contacts are available at the motel office) or a car - regular tour form Havelock is ridiculously expensive even for NZ standards.

Firstly I would like to thank you for taking the time to publish a review and to apologise for the unacceptable issue with the bath tub. As you will see from previous write ups we are very particular about cleanliness and take great care when training cleaning and supervisory staff to ensure that standards are met at all times. I wonder whether you would be kind enough to let me know whether the problem was on the day of arrival or following the service the next day. As I am sure you appreciate I would like to address the issue with the full facts at hand so that we can undertake the addition training obviously required.

I hope you all enjoyed your trip to New Zealand and that we will see you again should you make a return trip.

Kind regards

Karen

It was a pleasure to stay where the owners obviously take great pride in giving travelers such a pleasant place to stay. The rooms were charming and spotless. We really enjoyed soaking in the big bathtub although the shower was also great.

Our family of four stayed in a 2 bed apt for one night in this very well equipped motel tucked off the main road right in the centre of town. Great location for everything, good size accommodation, spotlessly clean and very helpful hosts.

Our family of 3 stayed in the 2bedroom accommodation. It was very well maintained, with ample kitchen accessories. The grounds were perfectly manicured, and well isolated from the main street; but within easy walking of the Mussel Pot and bakery. The proprietors were very kind and helpful. We would most certainly stay here again!
