We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage. Very new and clean and modern. Bright and spacious.

Great kitchen with oven which can be quite rare in cottages, all cooking utensils provided. Handy to have a dishwasher also.

We were surrounded on 3 sides by orchard. Loved the deck area. Perfect place to relax and eat dinner in the evening.

Loved the reclining/rocking leather chair in the living area. Furniture all looked new.

Host was very helpful and friendly.

Bed very comfortable. Ensuite off both bedrooms. All spotless. Very good shower pressure.

Perfect place for a very relaxing few days and you get so much more for your money here than most of the other cottages in the Hastings/Havelock/Napier region.

Perfect for what we needed. Rural location ment a peaceful stay with really friendly owners. Very clean, tidy & well maintained. Only 5 minutes drive to a lovely small local town. Plenty to see & do around the area. Would definitely go there again. Virginia

My wife and I, and sister and her husband stayed at Bluebell Lodge and Cottage for four nights over Christmas 2013. It was perfect. My 96 year old mother came out daily from her rest home in Havelock North and the quiet and restful environment offered us everything we had wished for. The two bed roomed cottage had all amenities and was beautifully presented in all respects. Wi-Fi facility enabled us to Skype wider family in London on Christmas day and the kitchen setup was perfect to assemble a lovely Xmas dinner. Nothing was too much for our hosts. Excellent bedrooms with ensuites and wonderful, friendly hosts completed the package for a perfect, restful and memorable few days.

Their 2 bedroom unit was perfect for 2 couples, as both bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms, and between them was a large common living area. All the furniture and equipment was very new and of a high quality, and our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The ice cream was a nice touch.

Our accommodation was just like "home" with all mod cons plus extras. The flowers and fruit in our cottage,cleanliness and the welcome we received from Carol.

We loved it so much, we have booked accommodation again and recommending to all our friends.
