“Very Nice”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We had this accommodation booked for us as part of a cycle tour around the Napier region. We were very pleased with the standard of this accommodation and with the helpfulness of the moteliers. We arrived very hot and hungry having ridden 60km with no food (that's another story). They immediately directed us to the nearest cafe.
When we returned we were delighted with our room which was spacious and well appointed. Everything we could need was there. Lovely big bathroom, great shower and the breakfast was already there for the next morning.
When we were enquiring about restaurants for the evening meal, I happened to mention that I was gluten intolerant. Within minutes some gluten free bread arrived to complement the breakfast. Great service, great place to stay. Sleep quality was fantastic. No noise, even though it was New Year's eve. We would thoroughly recommend this motel.

Room Tip: They all looked good to me

Lovely place to stay in the heart of Havelock North Village. Gorgeous, impeccably clean room, with an amazing shower. Comfortable, cosy beds, toasty warm and beautifully furnished - but the hosts really made this trip. Helpful, accommodating - nothing is too much trouble - looking forward to my next stay here. Very quiet (great curtains!)

We were impressed. We are moteliers ourselves, and were very impressed with the layout of the studios, the cleanliness, furnishings, and the outside set up. Rooms were comfortable to use, warm enough thanks to the heat pump, with a good range of guest amenities.
Love the fact that we could leave the car, and just wander around the town centre, and pick a restaurant that we could walk to. Many thanks, and we will be back.

Lovely to come into a warm unit on a cold winter's night. The king size bed was warm, comfortable and the pillows were just right. Very clean. Nice shower. Towels changed daily. Well equipped kitchen and a newspaper available daily. Have enjoyed each time have stayed there. Most units quiet. Good curtains and blinds to block out light.

What a place!!! We stayed for SEVEN Nights....then went back for another night before we left the area!!! As mentioned so often...Amanda and Mark are, just.......Wonderful and make the place so...Special. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The Rooms are First Class and VERY clean, Beds are mega comfortable, in fact I cannot find anything to find fault with.
Havelock North is a beautiful place with some really good eating places and shops. The Lodge is in a fabulous position in the centre and such choice of places to visit ..I did them ALL!!!!!
I have stayed in LOTS of places across the World, and I shall return here as I have so many fond memories.
IF you are looking for somewhere to stay in this area of Hawkes Bay..Look NO further.....This is where to BE!!!!

Booked on Wotif, arrived about 5pm on a cold Friday, no warm greeting and rarther indifferent checkin from man at reception, not shown to room but pointed in the general direction, if there had been guests waiting after us, would have understood. Unit comfortable and clean with a separate bedroom, but very cold. Bathroom stocked with plenty of towels and good amenities. Would have been more welcoming if the heater had been turned on for us arriving at that later hour which we had said we were on the booking. The airconditioning unit for the unit was also in the bedroom which meant the rest of the it (where you were sitting) took a bit to warm up.
Didnt realize until later in the day after checking out the following morning, that we had been charged for internet which was advertised as 'free' with our booking on wotif. It was only $4, but still felt a bit ripped off and was more annoyed about the fact that I hadnt checked after the a/c was paid, as person paying a/c not aware of that fact. Wasnt worth the time and effort trying to retrieve that small amount back, but the woman checking us out should have had all the booking info. in front of her and would have known it was a wotif booking ??
Perfect position in Havelock to walk everywhere for dining and shopping
