We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Colonial Cottages in Clive. What a treat!! The accommodation is perfect for a stay in the Hawkes Bay as it is close to both Napier and Hastings , with easy access to the bike trails , which was what we wanted. We had the two bedroom cottage and while the...

Thanks so much for a wonderful review of the cottages. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed the wonderful cycle trails that are so close by. The verandahs are a wonderful space on a sunny day arent they, especially after a long cycle! We are lucky indeed to live in this bit of paradise :)...

Beds very comfortable and lounge/kitchen area perfect for a short stay. The cottages are located in the middle of a beautifully landscaped garden with chairs outside to enjoy the weather.

I must admit, when we turned off the main road into the driveway I thought the place somewhat remote! We'd splashed out on a couple of expensive evening meals in Taupo, but we were looking for a bit of luxury in the accomodation department... And we found it! Two guys travelling together both had a great double bedroom & the...

Thanks heaps for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and found the location ideal for golf at Cape Kidnappers. My apologies with having to store some gear in your car, there is actually a sneaky alcove under the beds that is handy for those extra items. I thought I had put this in our welcome books...

We spent 2 nights in Tui Cottage and loved it! From the moment we walked through to the beautiful garden into the cottage we felt at home! The cottage is beautifully furnished and equipped, and to have fresh eggs for breakfast provided by the resident chickens was just lovely! We also managed to go on the Gannet Safari which was...

Initially we though place was actually a little over our Budget but we still decided to give it a try. We were certainly not disappointed. There are 3 cottages available placed around a extremely well-kept and peaceful garden with a stylish fountain in the middle. The cottages themselves are big enough for 2 people and are decorated with great taste....

The well designed cottages (colonial style but with modern comforts) have everything you could need and overlook a beautiful, scented formal garden. As city apartment dwellers we loved being able to sit on the verandah and enjoy the fountain, roses, jasmine and birdsong; when it rained, we were able to sit and enjoy that too. The breakfast provisions were generous,...
