“Wonderful relaxed environment, perfect for a weekend getaway”
Reviewed May 23, 2011

A wonderful bed & breakfast in a peaceful and idyllic setting. The service was excellent, breakfast was wonderful and the open fire in our room added to the cosy, relaxed atmosphere. I'd highly recommend staying at Havelock House to anyone visiting Havelock North.

We found this B&B to be 'a home away from home'. It was a wonderful place to come back to after a busy day of sightseeing, seeing friends and family etc. Jeff and Diana were the perfect hosts; there when you need them and going the extra mile but at the same time, providing you with the utmost privacy to unwind in your own space. The rooms were spotlessly clean, spacious and very comfortable. I would have no hesitation in recommending Havelock House, whether you are visiting as a couple or a family. I'm looking forward to returning when next in the Bay! Many thanks Diana and Jeff.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Havelock House during our recent trip to New Zealand in January 2011. The house and property were stunning!! We had a huge bedroom with very large private bath, and use of an absolutely gorgeous piece of property with pool. Diana our hostess was kind enough to let me use her washer and clothesline free of charge which was very helpful on our long road trip. Breakfasts were made to order and delicious with farm fresh eggs from their own chickens. Diana was very helpful with things to do and helped us discover things we had never thought of doing. Our stay at Havelock House was truly enjoyable.

We had an enormous bedroom and bathroom, opening onto the garden, beautiful and comfortable. Tea served on our arrival, and fantastic breakfast.
Enjoyed the swimming pool and the gardens.

Very welcoming and relaxing B&B. Diana was very accommodating during our stay, as well as offering up many ideas on things to do and see in the area. The location is off a main road, but very quiet and peaceful. Highly recommend.

Thank you for your kind comments about your stay here; we are really pleased you enjoyed it.
one small point - we are not on a main street - the entrance to Havelock House is on Endsleigh Drive - a quiet no through road; the house is set back with a wide sweeping driveway. We also have a large garden, swimming pool and tennis court and grounds of 4 acres - so plenty of space to relax!
It is a lovely location for a stay in Hawke's Bay - and quiet as you say - so thank you again.

A great B&B in a delightful setting with lovely hosts. Knowing it was our honeymoon the hosts kindly upgraded our room to an incredibly spacious room with spa bath and shower. We enjoyed using the pool and garden seemed very pretty too. The breakfast was great, particularly the homemade banana muffin. We would definitely stay here again.
