A pleasant and comfortable motel, close to all that Havelock North has to offer. Great staff who are keen to assist with your needs. Havelock North is a great place to stay if you want to visit the Hawkes Bay region.

Enjoyed a stay with business colleagues here. Upstairs rooms have large King, spa pool, very roomy and good value for its excellent location to be able to walk to pubs and cafes. Good service from Glenn coupled with recommendations of where to eat.

We enjoyed an overnight stay at this very conveniently located motel in a 2 bedroom apartment. Wonderfully friendly manager who directed us to a fabulous bakery a very short walk away.

We stayed here recently for 6 days and found it extremely convenient to Havelock North Village. The units were built in the nineties and have been well-maintained. They include a spa bath which is pleasant to use. We found the beds and pillows a bit hard and, combined with the road noise and heat, sleeping was difficult. The motel provides... More
