Very helpful host who accommodated our very late arrival. Huge rooms with all amenities and great bathroom. Delicious breakfast with home made muesli and jams and fully cooked options. And GF wasn't a problem which was lovely. Lovely gardens and views too. Great place to stay.

Havelock House is a great place to come back to after exploring around Hawkes Bay for the day. Diana and Jeff were welcoming hosts. The breakfasts were very good. Diana is very knowledgable about areas to explore in Hawkes Bay. I played golf at Cape Kidnappers and I highly recommend Havelock House to golfers.

We were very pleasantly surprised to find a delightful place a few miles out of Napier. A lovely garden setting with a salt water pool and fruit trees on the property that produced wonderful items for the breakfast table. The hosts could not have been friendlier or nicer and pointed us in all the right directions. If you stay there,...
