Needed a half way point from Picton to Nelson, suited fine. Nothing flash but can accommodate single or family eat in or eat out. Average Motel / Hotel would still stay again but only as a passing through option.

Stayed one night while traveling from Blenheim to Westport and were not disappointed. Katrina is an amazing hostess and went out of her way to ensure that our stay was special. Our room, with king-sized bed, overlooking the marina was spacious and spotless. Close to everything in Havelock. Make sure you DO NOT MISS dining at the Mussel Pot :-)

The room was comfortable, clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. Close to everything and reasonably priced. One of the few places that respect your wishes when you ask for a quiet room.

We stayed for one night only whilst passing through Havelock and would stay again in future. All simple but perfectly satisfactory, clean and well kept. It is nicely situated with places to get food very nearby. The hot tub is also there to experience, if you're inclined.

The rooms are reasonably priced, beds comfortable, the hot tub was amazing!! The lady we dealt with was super lovely. Everything was so clean! We stayed in a spa unit and the bath was good. They have a vege patch you can get herbs from and have solar heating

Very clean and tidy, excellent service with a reasonable charge. right in the middle of town, next to the hotel with good pizza. The marina is only a few steps away, we couldn't have wanted more from a motel for the two of us.

We had stayed in a terrible Hotel the night before as there were no rooms in town to be had. This was a welcome relieve, but even this room was the least of the rooms they had. Everything in town was rented as we had arrived the same time as the "wine run". some of the rooms are beautiful I'm...

Our little unit was clean, tidy and fairly priced. We were greeted very enthusiastically and allowed to view the room. We wanted only a room for a sleepover and our needs were met. So many minor adjustments could have been made for added traveller comforts: better lighting; some hooks and a shelf in the bathroom. However it was warm with...

We stopped overnight here on our way from the West Coast to Picton. The pool was lovely after a day's travelling, and the unit was comfortable. We had trouble getting a picture on the TV, but the staff came and fixed it promptly. Overall, very good value.
