“Lovely”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

We were impressed. We are moteliers ourselves, and were very impressed with the layout of the studios, the cleanliness, furnishings, and the outside set up. Rooms were comfortable to use, warm enough thanks to the heat pump, with a good range of guest amenities.
Love the fact that we could leave the car, and just wander around the town centre, and pick a restaurant that we could walk to. Many thanks, and we will be back.

Lovely to come into a warm unit on a cold winter's night. The king size bed was warm, comfortable and the pillows were just right. Very clean. Nice shower. Towels changed daily. Well equipped kitchen and a newspaper available daily. Have enjoyed each time have stayed there. Most units quiet. Good curtains and blinds to block out light.

What a place!!! We stayed for SEVEN Nights....then went back for another night before we left the area!!! As mentioned so often...Amanda and Mark are, just.......Wonderful and make the place so...Special. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The Rooms are First Class and VERY clean, Beds are mega comfortable, in fact I cannot find anything to find fault with.
Havelock North is a beautiful place with some really good eating places and shops. The Lodge is in a fabulous position in the centre and such choice of places to visit ..I did them ALL!!!!!
I have stayed in LOTS of places across the World, and I shall return here as I have so many fond memories.
IF you are looking for somewhere to stay in this area of Hawkes Bay..Look NO further.....This is where to BE!!!!

Booked on Wotif, arrived about 5pm on a cold Friday, no warm greeting and rarther indifferent checkin from man at reception, not shown to room but pointed in the general direction, if there had been guests waiting after us, would have understood. Unit comfortable and clean with a separate bedroom, but very cold. Bathroom stocked with plenty of towels and good amenities. Would have been more welcoming if the heater had been turned on for us arriving at that later hour which we had said we were on the booking. The airconditioning unit for the unit was also in the bedroom which meant the rest of the it (where you were sitting) took a bit to warm up.
Didnt realize until later in the day after checking out the following morning, that we had been charged for internet which was advertised as 'free' with our booking on wotif. It was only $4, but still felt a bit ripped off and was more annoyed about the fact that I hadnt checked after the a/c was paid, as person paying a/c not aware of that fact. Wasnt worth the time and effort trying to retrieve that small amount back, but the woman checking us out should have had all the booking info. in front of her and would have known it was a wotif booking ??
Perfect position in Havelock to walk everywhere for dining and shopping

Recently stayed in this gem situated in the heart of the Havelock North Village. Outstanding welcome from hosts Amanda & Mark who could not do enough to make a very pleasant stay. The units are spacious, airy, everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and spotless. Beds comfy and a shower you didn't want to get out of! Everything was in walking distance and Amanda had a fantastic local knowledge, suggesting some places we hadn't heard of. They also have self contained apartment down the road for when they get really busy - and it was gorgeous too! Will definitely be staying here again, A++++++ and thanks for a great weekend!

We stayed in a perfect little studio unit for two nights while in Havelock North for a wedding. The unit had everything we needed, very comfortable bed, well-stocked kitchenette, everything was super clean and tidy. The shower was even nice enough to deserve a mention! We were walking distance to the main street with lovely little shops & cafes. Also just a stone's throw to plenty of vineyards, particularly Black Barn, where the wedding was held. Would definitely recommend!
