Cottages on St. Andrews & Lodge On St Georges
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Comfortable, clean accommodation, great location, friendly and efficient owner and fun collection of animals all contributed to a happily memorable stay, despite constant rain. Even during a lightning-caused power cut, Di was at hand offering light, water and food and anything else we wanted! Must be the perfect place for young families on a summer's day with the pool and play area. Just as perfect for anyone wanting a quiet place yet within walking distance to local amenities. We highly recommend these cottages!

Room Tip: cottages 4 and 5 look directly on to the meadow with the alpacas in

Thanks for your kind review Jenny. After the constant rain and power outage, you would not believe the fantastic weather we have experienced since your stay. We had the most amazing Easter & Anzac weekend and the pool is still being used everyday by families staying here for the school holidays. Hopefully you can experience fun in the sun during your next visit to the Bay!!

Always a warm, hospitable, enthusiastic welcome and such a pleasure to stay here. Even with our 2 dogs! It's quiet and relaxing and very well set-up as self sufficient accommodation with options for breakfast service.

Room Tip: Self-explanatory and clear on the website...book what you need

Thanks for your review Rosie. You and your gorgeous dogs are welcome here anytime as your dogs are so well behaved and you left the cottage in a perfect condition!! We look forward to hosting you next time you're back in the Bay.

We had a great time here. Perfect for families with kids. Would definitely stay again. Very friendly and relaxing place to spend time. The pool is fantastic. We ended up spending a lot of time here rather than out and about as it was so fun.

Thanks for your review Cathy. I had to laugh as another mother complained over Easter that she couldn't get her kids off the property to go and explore the Bay as they just wanted to stay here, swim in the pool and play with their new friends they met in the playground...... I'm glad our guests feel this way. Warmest regards

When we're in this area of the country we always stay at Cottages on St Andrews. We love the beautiful situation, the access to the friendly animals, and the very clean and modern cottages. We have stayed in the studio unit, the two bedroom house and this time in one of the newly built cottages facing the paddocks. There is a new addition to the animal family, a very friendly donkey who seemed to enjoy our company and followed us about (perhaps it was the apple we gave him!). The swimming pool area has been upgraded as well and looks great although it was too cold to use on the weekend we were there. We travel with a small bichon dog and one of the good things about this property is they allow well behaved dogs. I wish more places around NZ were willing to accept small clean animals.
All in all Cottages on St Andrews is an incredible stay and I highly recommend you stay there if passing through - we will be back again.......Rhonda Chris and Molly dog from Auckland

Room Tip: Any of the cottages are great. The studio unit is of course much smaller but ideal for one night.

Thanks for your review Rhonda - it's always a pleasure to have the 3 of you stay with us. Such a shame it was too cold for you to swim during your stay as guests are still swimming at the end of April. However we will be closing the pool from the 1st weekend in May. We look forward to hosting you all when you're back in the Bay. Keep warm and keep smiling.

Lovely clean and tidy studio room to stay in at Cottages on St. Andrews. Room had everything we could want (down to insect repellent!) and was in a great location. It was a lovely quiet place to stay and we had a wonderful, restful couple of nights. The farm is well looked after and it was nice to stay with all the animals next door! Great signage and easy to find location. I highly recommended anyone to stay here. Looks like a great place to bring my family to next time.

Room Tip: The studio room is ideal for those travelling solo or as a couple. Nice and quiet and with good park...

We booked the cottages for our wedding party and family. The cottages were perfect and host Di went above and beyond to ensure all were well looked after. We were able to host a post wedding BBQ the day after our wedding, where the BBQ and pool area were perfect to entertain our guests. I highly recommend the cottages to anybody! Particularly if in the bay for an event such as a wedding, all of our wedding party and family were together and in walking distance from Havelock North. We had families, couples and friends amongst our group and all were catered for!

Hi Tamsin and thank you so much for your review. It was wonderful to host you and your wedding party here with us. What a great bunch of friends and family you have. It was lovely to see you all relaxing and having fun in and around the pool for your Wedding After Party. We had never thought of using that area but it worked perfectly. We look forward to seeing you whenever you are back this way. Warmest regards to you both xx

What a neat place to stay with a young family! Loads of space inside and out, loved the pool area, play ground and trampoline for the children. Comfy bed for a good nights sleep. Di was a fantastic host !
