Cottages on St. Andrews & Lodge On St Georges
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 20, 2011

The high standard of accommodation at Cottages on St Andrews would be hard to beat. Clean and tidy cottages, tastefully decorated, with peaceful surroundings and located so close to a host of things to do in Hawkes Bay. Di was helpful in giving great directions and sharing her local knowledge with us. We really enjoyed our stay. Great facilities and surroundings for the kids.

Everything about Cottages on St Andrews was excellent. Di was very easy to deal with when we needed to change our booking and gave us the friedliest welcome when we arrived.
We stayed in one of the cottages amongst the animals in the delightful farmlet.
Everything was clean and tidy on arrival and Di checked with us during our stay to see if we needed anything extra (which we didn't). The cottage is nicely appointed and certainly better than any motel we have stayed in - much roomier and more amenities.
The three of us were all very comfortable and all agreed that we won't need to look anywhere else for accommodation next time we visit the Hawkes Bay. Thanks Di.

We stayed here for five nights in September in the three bedroom cottage. We were a group of four adults and two young children and all had plenty of space. The cottage was immaculate, warm and very comfortable with a large dining and living area and a full kitchen as well as outdoor dining furniture. My children absolutely loved going out to feed and talk to the animals. Di and John were the perfect hosts and really went out of their way to make our stay something special. The location is perfect for winery tours or exploring the Hawkes Bay. There's a great restaurant a few minutes walk away called 'Off the Track', with a great menu (100 options on it!) large playground and horses over the fence.
We are looking forward to staying at the cottages again soon.

Our family of six ( Grandparent, parent and kids) stayed 2 nights in the 3 bedroom cottage right in the middle of Winter. The cottage is warm, spacious and very comfortable. Shower pressure is good and the hot water lasted till the sixth person finished the shower. My children loved the animals, my husband loved the fresh air in the morning, my father in law enjoyed the free internet connection and my mother in law loved all the beautiful flowers and plants in the garden. The owner - Di is very friendly and helpful and obviously enjoys what she do. One of those positive person that you will love to meet and say hello in the morning. Bedding are comfortable too, there is even a safe in the room. Wow !
The breakfast provision are comprehensive ( cereal, freshly laid eggs, juices, milk, tea coffee, hot Chocolate and bread).
I would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for very relaxing place to stay in Hasting, we will love to come back and stay again.

Stayed 2 nights and would have stayed longer if time had allowed.John and Di are fantastic hosts and nothing is to much trouble.The cottages are like a home away from home and everything is provided for.Such a beautiful rural setting and yet only minutes to
Havelock North or Napier and Hastings.Having WiFi was also great.
If you are looking for a great place to stay in Hawkes Bay then this is the place to be.
We will certainly be re-visiting.

A nice location close to Havelock North Village on a private road. Orchards and animals all around the property and fresh eggs each morning. Great for families or get away to enjoy CHB area and activities.

I just loved my time there, my hosts were warm, friendly and nothing was too much trouble to complete my comforts.

My daughter's only tip was that there was no hot chocolate! What a sin!

Everything was top quality, the bath towels, bedding and beds. Maybe a few extra tea towels wouldn't go a miss and better quality. I found they didn't dry the dishes terribly well. A minor detail.

Only other improvement could be free internet to consider?

Room Tip: No. 3 Cottage best for scenery and privacy.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I can't believe that I never thought of Hot Chocolate, because like your daughter I LOVE hot chocolate. As a result of your review we now have Hot Chocolate available in all Cottages and we now also have free wi-fi. Thanks for staying with us and your review has helped us improve our services to our guests.
