Our room was surprisingly large. Very clean and comfortable. It was very well equipped and a great location within walking distance to the lovely Havelock North village shops. Service was good. The spa in the room wasn’t too our taste but it was of no issue either way. Would highly recommend for a short stay.

My company chooses this motel and we have an account - thank goodness as I'll be trying to get some work in the Bay to stay again. Very well appointed rooms, couldn't fault the stay. Generous Internet, spa bath good.

Excellent location, with many amenities close by. The room was large and well appointed. Bed was large. Good shower, Only downsides was two of the bathroom towels had some questionable stains on them, which I didn't use.

Nice to be greeted in a genuinely friendly manner by the owner. Room was spacious, very clean with a spa bath and extra large bed. Close to the Village, five minute walk maximum so no need to drive to restaurants. Relatively quiet late in the evening. Well appointed rooms.

Great rooms with spa bath. Super-helpful and friendly staff worked to help me make the most of my short time in Havelock North. Motel is on the ring right by the central business district, and is less than five minutes from a grocery store, petrol station, and lots of restaurants and cafes and shopping. Highly recommended. *Note: there is construction...

Friendly owner, clean and tidy suites, huge comfy bed and love the big spa bath ( we had the deluxe studio). I stay here for work as well, and have always been impressed with the place as a good solid motel to stay at. This time around it was very noisy because of the building work going on across the...

The Lodge is located right next to the shops making it a great base for a stroll out for brunch etc… The room was large, clean, and the bed was awesome. I didn't make use of it but the spa bath looked great too. Unfortunately there is ongoing construction just across the road which was incredibly noisy. If you plan...

We had a function to attend nearby and as we preferred not to drive, chose this motel...perfect. We were within easy walking distance to Village but it was also quiet. The room was large and spacious, even though a spa pool in the corner... bathroom also although that needed a tiny bit of paint touch-up. The bed huge and comfortable...

Just few steps from the centre of Havelock North, it has nice rooms with a huge spa bath (looks like more a spa pool!) right in a corner of the room, perfect for relaxing a bit before going off for dinner in one of the many restaurants around. Rooms have a full kitchen too. Very good value for money and...
