I am a travel agent for school groups. I have had perhaps 200 hotel nights in the last year, so I have a good basis for comparison. 11 were at the Cottages (the initial thought was three nights, but the location, setting, hospitality, internet, and value were perfect!). I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and hope to be back. Clean and well-kept. Everything you need, and touches that make it even better still. Animals just outside the door (this spring it was sheep, alpaca, chickens, a miniature horse--and we hear a donkey arrives soon). The wifi worked wonders for us. The ability to wash clothes saved us. Diane's hospitality was as good as it gets, if not better. The winter "low season" offer made it the best value in the area. The other places are motels and not even close to this level of warmth. Easy walk to Havelock North. Bike trails begin at the end of the road. I hate to give it such a good review--likely never to find space there again!!--but honesty rules. Not to be missed.
