    "Warm and Friendly"

    We stayed in a Studio unit and found it met our needs exactly as advertised. It was snug and had been heated prior to our arrival. Staff were very warm and friendly and we also liked their commitment to recycling.

    "Friendly comfortable motel"

    We found the staff member here very friendly and helpful. The unit was clean, tidy and had all we needed for a one night stay. We used the BBQ which was good as we had won a meatpack and wanted to use it.

    "Re-booked Next Year"

    We stayed at the Havelock Motel and Motor Lodge on the recommendation of others who have stayed there at the same time many years in a row. The unit was clean and comfortable and the facilities good. Price point was just right for the location and accommodation type. Two suggestions we would make is that more towel rails are provided in the bathroom, so that towels can dry and be re-used. A full length mirror in the room would also have been handy.

    Good value for money. Great to have the use of a lovely swimming pool and spa. The room was adequate and the situation, perfect for amenities. Our shower control needed looking at (room C)

    "Very comfortable motel"

    We stayed overnight before catching the ferry in Picton, and had a very pleasant stay. A dip in the pool was much appreciated after a day's travelling, and the unit was very comfortable. It's easy to walk from the motel down to the wharf and to the various cafes of Havelock.

    "Overnight stay"

    On arrival we were welcomed by a person on the end of a telephone who was pleasant but clearly under pressure. The office was not manned, on arrival or departure. Our room was pleasant and clean, but the bed was the worst I have ever experienced. It was hard, poorly sprung and had a very sharp edging around the top edge of the mattress.

    A lot of road noise. Bed not very comfy a lot of roll together. Would have appreciated a fresh supply of milk when room was serviced when paying $175 a night. Nice pool and room overall. Not a lot of info on the town or what to do. Rating of 3 1/2

    "Outstanding Value at Stunning Spot"

    Loved this place, in a peaceful setting, surrounded by bushy hills at the end of the Pelorus Sound; with immaculate room, gorgeous bathroom and outstanding outdoor pool and spa area; optional DIY BBQ facilities with all ingredients arranged by the Motel; easy drive to swim in the emerald river waters at Pelorus Bridge, or to water safaris on Kenepuru Sound or the wineries of Renwick and Blenheim. Two regrets - we only booked here for one night and we ate at the Slip Inn - avoid!

    "Very Happy"

    Myself and my partner stayed at Havelock Motel and Motor Lodge over the weekend and had a fantastic time. The room had all required facilities, and the spa bath was super relaxing. We had local wine and cheese out on the patio with a fantastic view from our room. The BBQ and pool area looked excellent too.

    "Not too bad"

    We were happy enough with the accommodation - we stayed in the 5 bed family studio.

    The Good:

    -The accommodation was clean when we checked in

    -The pool facilities are impressive - nothing but praise for these, they are first class

    -The staff are friendly and helpful

    The not so good:

    -The cooking facilities were ancient, and the kitchen was really tiny

    -The bathroom was old and needed a freshen up - there were missing light covers, a hole behind the main door and peeling lino

    -Stuff that we used did not get replaced daily (soap, coffee)

    Overall not too bad but the family units really do need a bit of modernising.

    Stayed one night with two grandchildren aged 11 and 12 years.

    Wonderful pool area

    Only complaint we could not get either of the TVs in our unit to tune into any programmes. No instructions how to tune into programmes.

    "Friendly, helpful"

    Stayed here for a night when touring the north of South Island as Picton was booked out. How lucky we were as Havelock is so much nicer a place than Picton. The manager was extremely helpful and accommodating and even offered us fresh home made cookies when we checked in. The motel is large, has a lovely pool though due to bad weather we didnt get to try that out. The Slip Inn is a good place to have a meal.

    "no bath"

    i booked a unit specifically because it said on the website it had a bath. for the privilege i paid an extra $20 each night. when i arrived i discovered there was no bath. i rang the staff member on duty, she apologised but said there were no units available with a bath. i later had to address the issue again and was told i could not be given a refund by the staff member at the time, but the manager would contact me. later the staff member said she could give me a $40 discount next time i stayed. i would have preferred the cash, and to have not had to ask. facilities good, unit nice and clean with good views.

    "Great motel"

    Motel central for all activities, shops etc. however for us it was meeting a Scots lass who was the then duty manager, who made us welcome and gave us the advice about the area and made the necessary bookings for us. Thoroughly recommend this motel.

    "Fantastic Motel!"

    We recently stayed for 2 nights at this lovely Motel.

    It was a beautiful, modern, clean motel room.

    The fluffy bathrobes were a really neat touch, so comfy and warm.

    The room was completely serviced each day, so fresh towels, soap, coffee, tea.

    Another great touch was the huge jar of homemade cookies (baked by the owner) on the reception desk, for hotel guests to enjoy - anytime!

    I would thoroughly recommend this motel to anyone wanting to stop over in Havelock.

    "Canadian by bicycle to Havelock from Nelson"

    The motel, as advertised, provided great views and faced away from the highway. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I found the fixtures and furnishings modern and in excellent condition. The hot and cold water did mix prior to exiting the tap and for the first time there was a dimmer switch, something that seems to be quite rare in N.Z. I would book and stay at this motel again and I would recommend it to others on their journey to the land of the great green lipped mussels.

    "helpful, friendly, splendid !"

    Stayed 2 nights at Havelock Motor and Motor Lodge. Comfortable, affordable and practical for travellers from Scotland via Christchurch. Staff were extremely helpful even arranging a pick up for us back from the Marlborough Wine and Food festival. Towels changed daily. Incredible pool and hot tub. This was a slice of heaven. Havelock is not to be missed.

    "Stunning location"

    I enjoyed my trip to Havelock. My accommodation was clean, comfortable & quiet. The pool was great too - just the ticket after a long day sightseeing! The location was amazing - Havelock is surrounded by lush green mountains with the marina nearby. If you can spare a day or two in your itinerary to stop off at Havelock I can recommend the Havelock Motel & Motel Lodge for a relaxing stay.

    We had 3nights here for a nearby wedding and couldn't have been more happy with our stay. The staff, especially Kerry,(but also Penny) we're sooooooo helpful, with hair dryers etc that weren't part of our room set up. Room was fine, with a good kitchenette and close to everything in Havelock. We'll be recommending this place to our friends?

    "Noisy neighbours"

    Our unit had very little insulation between the walls, so that we could hear an occupant in the other unit snoring and the children from that unit woke at 5.30am.

    We could hear some of the conversations of the family and it was not possible to sleep from that time.
