“Great location”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

This was our second stay in this motel and it didn't disappoint. We shared a two bedroom suite with friends. Very quiet - no road noise. The location is great - just a short walk into the shops in Havelock North - can walk to New World and there's even a liquor wholesaler across the road. Suite was very clean and spacious. New modern large bathroom with spa bath. Appreciated SKY TV with the sports channels. Only disappointment was that the advertising says "full kitchen", so I expected a stove; however only a microwave, electric frypan and two hobs. I believe that's more a "kitchenette". Will definitely recommend to friends and will stay here again. Very helpful manager who made his garage available to house our bikes overnight.

Room Tip: Ask for a room backing on to reserve away from the main road.

My family and I stay here regularly on time out in HNth
Managers are friendly and very obliging Motel itself very clean, tidy and value for money
They automatically give us the suite we so love backing onto the park with no road noise
A wonderful value for money clean and well located premise
We will return over and over as they make us feel so very welcome
Faultless!

This motel is easy walking distance to all the restaurants & shops of Havelock North. The owner is helpful & friendly. Our room was big with a spa bath, separate bathroom with shower. Ideal for self-catering with a microwave and hob. Sky TV with all 3 sports channels (important for me at the cross-over time between cricket & rugby!)
Good value at $145/night; we will be back.

We have stayed in Hawke's Bay a few times, and Havelock North is the perfect base to explore the Napier/Hastings/Havelock North area. This place in Havelock North is fabulous - it is very clean and tidy, and the host and staff will go out of their way to make sure that you have all the information you need to have a great time. Once again, Glenn outdid himself as the perfect host.

Brilliant. We were missing the tennis at The Aussie Open and to our delight, discovered that we had SKY Sports 3 with the full coverage!
So, in our spacious upstairs unit we were faced with opportunities.... to watch the flat screen TV from the comfortable high backed armchairs, the dining table, the quality super king sized bed, or the fabulous 2 person spa! What more could one ask for?
The large, bathroom with shower was a much better option than a shower over the spa as in many other places.
A mix of carpet and tiles gave a modern presentation.
With town and restaurants a mere 2 minutes walk away this is a great place to stay.
Very welcoming and helpful reception.
Perhaps a little short on wardrobe space and road noise did intrude a bit.

Absolute value for money. The room was very spacious, comfortable bed, great shower and spa pool. Well equiped kitchenette. Lovely coffee - plunger and instant Robert Harris. Man at reception very friendly and helpful. Compared with many others we have stayed at throughout New Zealand, we were most impressed. Best room by far. Highly recommend.

My wife and i have stayed here many times,the only place we now stay when visiting and each and everytime the welcome and service is very good. Glenn is great and all ensure that the Units are immaculate. Check in and out is real easy. The Units are quiet and just a short walk from the town center. Over the years we tried the rest but both agree that Te Mata Lodge is the best.
