We stopped overnight here on our way from the West Coast to Picton. The pool was lovely after a day's travelling, and the unit was comfortable. We had trouble getting a picture on the TV, but the staff came and fixed it promptly. Overall, very good value.

I have stayed at the Havelock Motel 9 times so decided it must be time to review it! My first stay was with my husband and three children in a family unit. These family units had just been done up and they were modern and spacious. We loved that there was a bedroom on a mezzanine floor so that we...

Had to head south again and decided to stick with what I know. I have stayed here before and really liked it. They have expanded a bit since last time. They have a breakfast menu now and I was really excited to see that there are a lot of non-dairy options when it comes to milk. I know that's a...

We had a bit of a drive from Greytown to Wellington and over on the ferry and we wanted to get away from Picton and be positioned for the next day’s driving so the location was fine. By the way we did the Queen Charlotte Drive route to Havelock and while a lot of twisty corners the view is certainly...

The service (reception) in this place was fine but the room did not seem clean, the bed certainly did not seem clean, the sheets did not appear to be freshly laundered and I wondered whether they'd even be changed from the last guest. When I pulled back the covers I found a flea or some small, moving thing. On the...

Linda C I'm not sure where to start on this, as it is factually untrue on so many levels! I have made a formal complaint with Trip Advisor so I'm sure they will be in touch shortly.

This is a big complex, clean and tidy. It has the 2 essentials, a comfortable bed and a good shower. Visited here with a number of others and we were on a motorbike trip. There were about 18 of us and we all ate a meal in the restaurant. really made the kitchen work that night. all went well.

We stayed in one of the units on the top floor with a nice view over the marina. Room was large, bed was very comfortable and the kitchenette was well equipped. Everything was spotlessly clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Within walking distance of everything that Havelock has to offer. Only downside was the road noise early in the...

This is a modern motel complex with a pool, shallow pool, hot tub, BBQ and function room on-site. We chose one of the spa bath units; it was clean, spacious and had a lovely view.

The young lady who owns and runs this place managed her own restaurant for ten years. After having sold the restaurant, this very entrepreneurial family decided to upgrade the motel. There is now a very large warm swimming pool, with a baby swimming pool attached to it. There is also a spa. The garden is well designed, with views over...
