I stayed here for the first time on business,m. The motel is very central, just a block away from the hub of restaurants. The room I had was very large, with two big seats to use and do work at. The room was warm when I arrived. My only gripe was the height of the shower, I’m 197cm tall and the shower was at my torso. But other than that, it was a great stay. Plenty of off street car parking.

thanks for your recent stay, and feedback from that stay. Glad you enjoyed your room. Because you are so tall for future stays I would suggest the studio rooms which have a separate shower, rather than over the bath. Let us know and we'll make sure you get a studio suite

I have tried 3 motels in Havelock North and this is the best of them. Clean and fresh. Large rooms with huge spa bath. King size bed a bonus. Good little extras on arrival and coffee in reception. Tom and Esther try hard to make the stay enjoyable. Easy walk to all the cafes. takeaways and restaurants. Supermarket 2 minutes away as is the local gym. 🚴‍♂️

One of the better places with ever stayed in the Hawkes Bay. It's up market beautiful furnishings and affordable family accommodation. On a main road but can't hear inside the rooms, brilliant. We had breakfast in our room this morning very good price arrived on time friendly service yummy food. Very welcoming when we arrived, excellent check in with free coffee and lobby. Will definitely stay here again.

We were fortunate to get tickets to see the fabulous Freddy's at the amazing Black Barn arena.
Te Mata Lodge is walking distance from the venue, so it was the perfect location for us. It was fully booked by the time we got there, no doubt due to the concert and great weather.
We were one couple in a 2 bed-roomed unit for 2 nights. Reception was very friendly, the unit was clean and tidy. A spa bath we didn't get to use, and free WIFI. Everything in the room was as expected.
The only down side is the sound-proofing between the unit upstairs and the one we were in. There didn't appear to be any, as we heard the person come home at 3.30am, stomp around until they found the bed and remarkably get up again 3 hours later. You could argue this is out of the control of the lodge, only the fact that we could hear everything including the level of intoxication from the weaving pattern of steps makes you think there might be more that could be done to dampen the sound. We would definitely return but would stay in either a top-floor or single storey unit.

I stayed here for 3 nights visiting colleagues. The welcome was friendly and personal, being shown to the room which was large, very clean and even got a fresh milk for my tea/coffee. My room had well appointed kitchenette, Jacuzzi bath in the room and large separate bathroom. The TV was a large flat screen with a large selection of satellite channels (should you require). Located a few metres from the centre of town - so very convenient.
I was able to do some washing in the laundry on-site which was easy and convenient.

Only (small) negative: my room was one of two close to the road - and there was some traffic noise, but not so much as to detract/
