An absolutely delightful place to stay. Immaculate inside the cottages, free wifi & best of all free citrus fruits from the trees. Close to some great wineries and only 20 mins from Napier. The owners are super friendly and helpful. It's the third time we've stayed here & again fantastic.

Stayed: July 2014

My second visit. It's a great place to stay. Friendly people, a beautiful location close to Napier and Hastings. Nothing beats sitting on the deck eating farm eggs on toast and a mug of tea, listening to the birds - best way to start the day!

Room Tip: All equally good.

My husband and I stayed with our four-year old daughter for three nights over Easter, and had an absolutely magnificent time. The two-bedroom cottage was just magic - so much so that when it came time to leave there were very nearly tears! The cottage is incredibly quiet, with a beautiful garden setting - very restful. The hosts couldn't do enough for us, and were a mine of information about excellent places to eat, and things to see and do. Total magic, and highly recommended!

Many thanks for the fantastic review Kiri. It was wonderful to have your family stay with us and your daughters attachment to 'her' cottage was rather gorgeous! So glad you enjoyed your stay with us, we'd love to welcome you back in the future!. Kindest regards, Sandra

We were looking for accommodation in the Hawkes Bay area which would be quiet and away from main roads and comfortable and rural. We found it. A small but perfectly formed development of three lovely cottages in a garden setting adjacent to but separate from the owners bungalow with ripe figs and citrus fruit to pick and herbs to hand. Only a few yards from the beach and not far from the main Hastings to Napier road to expedite travel to the wonderful wineries and fruit farms on the doorstep. Very friendly and helpful owners . Our only reluctance to add to the glowing reviews is that it imght be fully occupied when we next return!!

Room Tip: 3 units , one with 2 bedrooms

We have just had a family reunion at the Clive Cottages, the cottages are very well appointed with everything you need. Our hosts Neil and Sandra could not do enough for us and made the weekend so enjoyable. I would really recommend the area and the cottages to anyone who wants a great weekend away.
Thanks so much Neil and Sandra for a great time.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Tui Cottage and it was wonderful, very clean with all the amenities you could wish for. Sandra and Neil our hosts were very welcolming and never seemed to stop working. We would certainly have no reservations about recommending Clive Colonials for your stay in Hawkes Bay,

Lovely stay in these quiet, charming cottages in Hawke's Bay. Very clean with modern bathroom and walk in shower. Extremely helpful owners and great location for visiting Napier and the vineyards. Good welcome pack for breakfast, barbecue area and an outdoor chess board.
