“Very quiet and accommadating.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

I stayed at Manor Views on bissiness for over a month, In which i worked nights and found it very quiet.
Joanna and Brents willingness to help outside the normal hours with meals, overall cleaning and washing and not to mention the cleaning of my room.
The view from my Standard plus room is wonderful with vistas to the west which means i get awesome sunsets and light filled mornings.
Can totally recomend, you wont be disapointed.

Room Tip: Just ask for the standard plus room, if your a couple.

I stayed on my own at Manor Views to attend the Topp twins opening exhibition at the Huntly museum. Also I wanted to revisit my past, being born at Huntly maternity hospital (now Manor Views) and had lived in the area for all my childhood years. It was wonderful to see some of the original features of the hospital Joanna showed me upon a very welcoming arrival and to be able to experience the wonderful view of Huntly from up on the hill from the very spacious family room with lots of windows I was upgraded to. I was very warm and cozy after immediately being given an extra heater I asked for and the stirfry dinner I pre-ordered was so plentiful and devinely tasty. With Manor Views being located close enough to walk into town and friendly owners and staff I would highly recommend a stay when passing through the small town of Huntly..

Room Tip: All day sun in the corner family suite

Large group of us from a hot rod club all stayed there.
Plenty of room,for parking,and socializing .
Very inviting,would not hesitate to return or recommend to others.
A little difficult to find, but once there the views and park like setting
was so worth it.
Value for money, just great.

We stayed for a weekend whilst racing at Hampton Downs, approximately 20 minutes away. The owners were very helpful when we phoned to say we would be late due to being lost in Huntly, and gave good directions and showed us where to park the trailer. There was sufficient parking for the car and race car and we could park it outside the room, which was even better.

The room looked out over Huntly and the Waikato river and was nicely decorated and furnished. As the hotel is a converted hospital, the interior has some nice quirks left over from it's previous identity. The owners were very accommodating in providing breakfast at an early hour on a Sunday.

A lovely hotel in a peaceful location where we were made to feel very welcome.

My wife and I recently celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at Manor Views. For us our stay was something of an "oasis" experience... coming out of Auckland for a couple of nights to be pampered by our hosts and their facility was so restful, relaxing and renewing. Brent and Joanna have done an outstanding job of breathing new life into the old maternity home. We will be back!

Room Tip: Pay for the best you can afford

Excellen views and friendly management good parking very quiet and prices are OK. The first time we had the honeymoon suite which was excellent but the second time I had a room without a doorlock that concerned me (although they moved me the second night) and the showers and toilets were communial and only moderate standard, although clean. There is excellent large communial lounge with gardens and decking. Its an old converted nurses home and has its charm.

As well as our luxury and standard rooms we have 2 backpackers rooms which are very nice for backpackers but I would imagine would be a let-down after having one of our luxury suites, which have double spa baths, double showers and big-screen TVs.

While the backpackers rooms weren't individually locked they are in a separate area, accessible only by swipe-card and we don't rent individual rooms to separate guests, so in effect has its own lock and own toilet.

We certainly hope that you choose to stay with us again next time, in either one of our standard rooms or suites.

This back packers room rents for only $60 NZ per night, Standard rooms $110, Luxury suites $149-$199.

My husband and I stayed here for a night and agree the views and service were excellent. The hosts were extremely friendly and we had a very pleasant stay and would recommend to friends and family. The manor is a beautiful historic building and the room we had was lovely. It was a lovely peaceful location as well and not far from town.
