We were blown away by the beautiful gardens and grounds when we arrived and so thrilled with our lovely Pacifica room. We stayed in February for 3 nights over a long weekend and I was so pleased we were able to get this reservation. Breakfasts were a revelation too with John preparing freshly baked bread, pastries, and an amazing fresh...

My partner and I stayed here over Waitangi weekend in the self contained Te Whare room. The place was immaculate, comfortable and everything we could possibly need was thought of and provided for. The grounds are equally as immaculate with great facilities including outdoor bath tub and spa pool as well as a beautiful pond and gardens. Although we were...

Last year, we visited for three nights and were so delighted that we came back for a week this time. It was every bit as good as we had remembered. There are so many magical touches to staying here, whether wandering through the orchards, watching the sun set across the river or simply relaxing in the stillness and calm of...

My son and I stayed at St Andrews Escape as part of a three day self-guided cycle trip arranged by Napier-based Takaro Trails. What a special place. Just out of town, this modern, beautifully styled, up-market B&B made us so welcome we didn't want to leave. Peaceful and set in an orchard and lovely gardens, with views to the lake...

This lodge is a very pleasant hidden gem, equidistant between Havelock North and Hastings. We had a fabulous weekend here with our US friends in mid January and as Kiwis we were proud to share time at a place which is the equal of any in the world. Very fine breakfast was served in the courtyard with great attention to...

This was a special weekend for us, so were delighted with St Andrews Escape from the time of our arrival. We were warmly greeted by one of the owners John, who showed us all over their garden, our super room, and all the facilities, which are excellent. The breakfasts were delicious and we looked forward to them daily. The property...

Quiet and peaceful garden setting for a relaxing escape. Friendly service, great breakfast outside in the garden. Rooms all have their own theme. We stayed in the Pacific room and friends stayed in the retro 1960s room. Spa pool, WiFi. Definitely worth a visit, we will go again.

We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of the new year and had a wonderful time. When we arrived I wasn't feeling well but John, our host, was very gracious and accommodating and made every effort to look after us and we loved the personal tour on arrival. The setting is beautiful, the gardens incredible and breakfast, complete with...
