5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Perfect location
We loved the pavilion for a number of reasons. There was absolute privacy. Accommodation was spacious and clean. I could pick my fresh mint leaves for tea just outside by the deck and the kitchen came well equiped with freshly baked bread and fruit on arrival. The location between Hastings and Havelock North was perfect for us.

Peaceful and sunny
Lovely quiet setting and so handy to Havelock North.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great getaway from the city
Quite and close to nature place. We had a good rest and relaxing family time there. This place is not far from Napier, about 30 mins drive . Love the occasional visit of the owner's 2 doggies - Dougal and Pluto. The freshly baked bread and fruits were very much of a surprise and appreciated. The A-Z tips sheet / information provided in the Pavilion was helpful.
