“Ideal for us”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. 3 adults, a 4 year old, a baby and our pet schnoodle spent a very enjoyable week in a 2 bedroom cottage on this property. The location, close to both Hastings and Havelock, was perfect. The cottage was an ideal size for a stay of this length. The surroundings and the various animals on the property were a real bonus - and the owners were very helpful for all of our requirements. We look forward to returning soon.

I'm not sure I want too many other people to know about this fantastic little hideaway, it may ruin the availability for us in the future! We had a great stay and were able to bring our dogs with us, that is hugely important to us as they are our kids. Havelock North is a charming little village and the donkey is a real charmer, we will be back so long as there is a vacancy!

Ha, ha - thanks for your lovely review Allan. Hopefully the 2 new cottages will always ensure there is a vacancy for you and your dogs!! Isn't Costa (the donkey) an absolute treasure. I don't believe we need to keep him fenced in at all as he's so happy to follow me wherever I go. He's such a charmer. We look forward to hosting you again some time in the future.
Warmest regards

What a lovely place to stay. We had a lovely time even though the weather was grim.
Di told us about places of interest and a lovely place to eat. The cottage was very clean and comfortable.
Already planing our next visit next year.

What an amazing stay we had at Cottages on St. Andrews! Cottages are so gorgeous inside and out, we absolutely loved walking around and feeding the animals. Di was so welcoming, showed us around, gave us advise on where to do and things to do. The Spa at the cottages was an awesome addition to our special weekend. The location of the cottages is perfect! it's not right in the middle of the city, yet it's very close to the shops and attractions. It's such a little gem! We are planning our next stay with our 2.5 year old twin boys, they will have a blast feeding the animals, riding the pony and swimming in the pool! Thank you so much for such wonderful stay!! We will definitely be back and will be recommending it to our friends and family!!!

We ventured to Hastings on a wet weekend staying 2 nights at Cottages on St Andrews. The studio room was furnished beautifully and the facilities were new and exceptionally clean.

The highlight of the stay were the lovely hosts - Di and John. They invited us into their home to watch the Super 15 final and were such a lovely couple, who made us feel most welcome!!

Thankyou we will definitely be back.

A massive thank you to the friendly Di who owns the Cottages on St Andrews, we loved our stay over the weekend. We were lucky enough to have the warm sun out, and the clear skys with the stars while we sat in the spa with our champagne. As a wedding planner, I look forward to having the Cottages on St Andrews as an option for potential clients and future weddings.

Look forward to going back there for more stays in the future

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.

Room Tip: The most distant cottage is a bit at the far reaches of the wifi. Still works, but a bit spotty. F...
