We had a very peaceful 4 nights. The Motel had all we needed and the video selection is great. The Motel trees are beautiful and the spa bath a real plus. We had a really good look at all the corners around Havelock and enjoyed walks and views. Hope to be back again before long. Thanks.

This is one of the most scenic small town which is the Green lipped mussel capital of the world. We keep going back there as the rooms are so well kept and the hosts give fantastic service. It had everything we needed and the restaurants in town do great food. There is no smoking in the units.The entrance to the...

Also handy for a trip on the Pelorus Mail boat which can be booked at the Motel. Our accommodation was very clean and well equipped, we had two bedrooms, large...

Stayed two nights in this very nice comfortable clean motel. So quiet set in a lovely garden of mature trees. Friendly hosts . Conveniently situated right in the middle of the village and next to the Mussel Pot.

We had booked a room at the Havelock Motel across the road and were very pleased to find we could escape the noisey neighbours and move over to the Garden Motel. What a contrast - Havelock Garden Motel was beautifully quiet and extremely well appointed. We had a two bedroom unit that was really well looked after and we thought...

Spent 4 nights here and were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The accommodation was excellent and the gardens are lovely, being hidden nicely from the road. A short walk to restaurants and the harbour this is an great choice for visiting Havelock and surrounding area.

So pleased to hear that you would consider staying with us again Gill. It is certainly a plus, from both our perspective and our guests, to own such a uniquely situated motel. Although it is a benefit to be positioned on the main artery from Picton to Nelson we are in a hillside enclave surrounded by trees, all of which...

The gardens are amazing. Rooms set back from the road so very quiet. Standard rooms that are perfectly adequate and not dated at all. Warm, comfy beds, good showers. Cheap soaps but it's not 5 star! Hair dryers etc and good lighting. I would definitely stay here again.

Hi kipa74 Your review is much appreciated, thank you. Glad to hear that you were so comfortable and warm, the heat/aircon pumps are obviously paying off. If you stay out of season again I will have to ensure you experience a larger one bedroom unit to show our appreciation for the time you have taken to write your review. Kind...

Really enjoyed my short stay here. In a lovely peaceful setting amongst manicured gardens. Staff were lovely. Room was spacious and warm, a bonus in the middle of winter! Heat pump and an electric blanket. Few cute geese roaming around as well.

My apologies Octomoo for having letting your review slip passed me. Thank you for your kind comments. The pond has been very busy over the last few of months with a wild couple of ducks using us as their breeding ground. There were 13 ducklings and the parents were fascinating to watch, they managed to raise 11 babes to adulthood...
