This was our 2nd visit to Havelock House, this time we stayed in The Havelock Suite. A lovely spacious room with a very comfortable bed. The open wood fire was just gorgeous!! Diana and Jeff are perfect hosts and their breakfast is superb ??best in Havelock North!! Looking forward to our next visit.

A great stay and warm, helpful hospitality. Comfort and the luxury of space in peaceful surroundings make this B&B a perfect retreat. I particularly enjoyed the bed - one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on.

A great stay at Havelock House. Jeff and Diana could not have been more accommodating - even to providing the tomato sauce we used for the fish and chips we bought to take back to Havelock House. Diana's knowledge of the local area and the various excursions we could go on was second to none. We would absolutely recommend this...
