Exceptional welcome when we arrived. The food was outstanding, particularly the breakfasts. Accommodation was very good. The location was very beautiful and scenic. We especially enjoyed the old-fashioned sweet shop half a mile away! All-in-all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend to everyone.

Great place to stay in Havelock. We stayed with our 3 children, and the spacious accommodation suited us just perfectly. Great spacious rooms, and Diana was extremely welcoming and tolerant of our young children!! Beautiful breakfast.... We will be back!

If you like tradition, Havelock House has it in spades from the warm welcome from Diana to the simply fabulous breakfast, it shows that she has been a successful host, you couldn't find a better place in the area.

Thank you for taking the time to post some feedback - we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.

We have just returned from a lovely couple of days in the Hawkes Bay. Havelock House proved a perfect base. The breakfast was wonderful, great eggs, tasty bacon and wonderful muesli (Diana offered me the recipe and when I declined gave my husband a "take home" pack.) The room was spacious and the bath massive. We had pre booked most...
