We found the Havelock Garden Motel to be clean, spacious and well-appointed, with an excellent central location in the village.
The actual garden has some fine specimen trees and shrubs.
Even tho' we were only here for a night we could have happily stayed longer if we had the time!

Firstly, this motel is excellent value for money and this review is written with that premise in mind. Havelock Garden Motel was recommended to us by the proprietor of the excellent Anchorage Inn at Kiakora. "Takes one to know one". The proprietor's of Havelock Garden are working very hard to make this motel as comfortable as they can and it shows. Attention to detail is obvious. We had one of the rooms at the rear of the motel and it was very quiet, spotless, homely and comfortable. The owner is welcoming, we would have liked to stay longer but our time was limited.

Dinner was at the cute mussel pot next door. I'm not sure I really like mussels enough for 3 courses but the experience must be had. And if you are going to get good moules then this is the place.

Room Tip: I'm sure they are all good but a room at the rear was very quiet.

The motel fronts on to the main road but just up the drive there are lovely trees, a river running through the gardens and picnic tables under the trees. This offers good, clean lodge type accommodation at very reasonable prices. The owners are friendly and welcoming. One of the few places we came across on the trip to NZ where they offer fresh ground coffee and cafetiere in the room, which I love. All necessaries were present - good sized bed, good shower and adequate kitchen facilities.

Lovely quiet place with easy-going friendly owners. Also nice and central in Havelock for restaurants etc. Walks from here go directly up into the bush to visit a waterfall and also a short distance to marina and boating. Useful base for exploring the less-visited Pelorus Sound ie less touristed area than Queens Charlotte Sound.

Room Tip: Quietest and cheapest room at the back of the facility ie closer to the hill.
