We loved our stay with Diana and Jeff who made us feel welcome from start to end at stunning Havelock house. We stayed in the Napier room which was delightful with room to move and very clean with modern bathroom and view onto the garden.

Havelock House was one of the best accommodations we have ever experienced. The Havelock Suite was more stunning than the website pictures. We were fortunate to be able to book at the time we did, as the Art Deco Festival was happening on the same weekend as our four-day stay. There is so much to do here. Diana was kind...

We spent 3 nights at Havelock House again this year, having enjoyed our stay last year so much. Everything was as good (except the weather which meant we didn't use the pool), and Diana was particularly attentive and helpful. The recommended eateries were great. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast sessions with international visitors and a very good spread.
