Nice place! Close enough to Havelock North town centre to be handy - just within late-night walking distance when a taxi couldn't be sought. There was a slight communication hiccup on check-in but the rooms were spacious, tidy and well-catered.

Stopped over for one night after visiting family in Havelock North. Everything was as expected - clean, tidy and comfortable. The parking was spacious unlike many other motels and the owner was very pleasant and helpful.

We were trying to find a place in Napier, but everything was booked up so we tried Havelock North, about 20 minutes away, and lucked out with this motor lodge. We received a very friendly welcome and great tips on wineries to visit nearby, and believe me there are lots of good ones within a 15 minute drive. The room... More

We just spent one night here but it met all our needs. The room was clean and comfortable. The wifi was not great, but few places in NZ offer good wifi. The location is a little off the beaten path if you want to walk to dinner, but it was peaceful and in the middle of a quiet neighborhood.

Overnight stay was ok. Any longer might be a problem. Few kilometres out of town. Nice room and comfy bed but no air con in HB on hot summer night. Fan provided. Small shower with moderate water pressure. Good parking.

Great location in Havelock North, close to Black Barn winery and a nice walk into Havelock North village. The room was large, well provisioned, and the bed (and pillows) were very very comfortable. Nice pool too. I hope to be back for another holiday in Hawkes Bay soon!!
