Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were visiting the Hawkes Bay as an extended family for a cricket tournament and a group of us stayed in three rooms at the Wine Country Motel.
Our great experience started well before our arrival when I needed to make a couple of changes to bookings for two of the rooms. I rang and spoke to Kim who frankly couldn’t have been more helpful. One room we needed to cancel and rebook, due to a quirk in the Booking.com system, but being aware of the shortage of accommodation in Havelock North over the weekend we were fearful we could lose the room in doing this. Kim as marvelous staying on the line and ensuring the room remained available for us to rebook.
Our arrival was delayed until late in the evening and again after talking to Kim on route she was most helpful ensuring we could arrive and got access with no issues.
The rooms we had (two family rooms and one studio) we really well appointed and very comfortable. We were there for nearly a week and at no time did we feel cramped or find the room lacking.
Tom was most helpful with storing our bikes in their garage and allowing us to get them whenever we wished.
The pool and large BBQ table/area was lovely and great for a big group to sit together and enjoy while the kids swam.
While the rooms and facilities were great what really made our visit so enjoyable was the hospitality by Tom and Kim, they really are fabulous hosts and, while the motel is relatively large, seemed to have time for everyone.
All in all, I can thoroughly recommend the Wine Country Motele. We will definitely be returning on our next visit to the Hawkes Bay.

Booked 3 nights in 3 separate rooms for a joint family 80th birthday for my Dad (covering 6 adults and 4 adult-aged kids).
Very spacious & clean rooms, excellent friendly service at both check-in & check-out, as well as the daily room servicing …. and a lovely swimming pool too. Would definitely stay here again when we're next up in the Hawkes Bay.

Location was just down the road from a few wineries but also from the centre of the town. Was amazing service, so friendly. We really appreciated that we were looked after just as well as anyone else - as we are young I think motel owners can often be a little weary. We felt we wanted to respect this place and its owners as they respected us! Couldn't have asked for more.

We were so excited about staying here as the previous owners welcomed groups like ours with open arms and even came and hung out with us and played with the boys but we had the exact opposite and were extremely disappointed.
We were quite a large group who booked out a large proportion of the rooms yet they did not like the kids swimming in the pool, us being in the barbecue area even though it was only 6.30pm.
They put a "tired traveller" in the room right next to the pool area and told us to leave the pool when we were having a team barbecue and it was only 7.30/8pm which, given it was holiday period was very early. Once the kids were kicked out of the pool they all congregated in one of the bigger rooms to watch TV and were told off for this too.
You just couldn't win with these guys, hence I would not recommend this for any group booking ever and have told people not to stay here. It was not cheap either and they just seemed very unhappy we were there - the boys were on a club trip and loving being in HB and very polite etc so if you are considering this for 11-12 year olds and parents please DON'T there are plenty of other places who will welcome you far better and treat you like normal human beings.

The only problem group with children we have recollection of is a group that stayed with us about 11 months ago. We received multiple guest complaints from all over the complex of which we had to deal with. There is always two sides to a story.

The unit was tidy but the pot scrubber needed replacing as it still had gunk on it. The chopping board needed to be scrubbed as you do not know what has been on it and has not been thoroughly cleaned for sometime. The tea towels were not replaced each day even though they were wet. Dishwashing liquid was not topped up even though it was almost empty. On our 2nd to last day the unit was not serviced apart from two towels being put in the bathroom and not taking out the ones that needed to be washed even though they were on the bathroom floor ready for swapping over. Shower was not cleaned and the bed was not made. When this was pointed out we had two more towels put on our chair and that was it. These are very basic things that Hotels should do right. Never struck this low level of service for many years

We stayed in Havelock North for 2 nights at the wine country motel. A great location for wineries in the region as well as Napier and Hastings. Havelock North itself has all the shops you need, and a variety of fab places to eat.
The hosts/owners were super friendly and made us feel very welcome. The room was spotlessly clean, spacious and had everything we needed.
The pool was great to jump into after a busy day wine tasting and visiting Napier. Quiet and well maintained, we’d highly recommend as a place to stay if visiting the area.

We loved this property in the 2 bedroom family room.The bedrooms and living area were very spacious. The kitchenette had absolutely everything we needed. The hosts were so kind and helpful. The parking was easy. The location is absolutely perfect with walking trails, so many great restaurants, and Arataki Honey a short walk down the street. We definitely recommend this property.

We had a spacious one bedroom with air-conditioning which in this heat was amazing. Owners and staff were welcoming and friendly - and showed that they cared that you were enjoying your stay.

A big thank you to Lynne and Neville for making us and Ember feel at home, our room had a lovely bathroom and kitchen and we felt more like family sitting outside of an evening.

Wine Country Motel is only minutes from restaurants, wineries, recreational areas and local attractions. Great value for money over 3 days. Thanks Guys!

Last minute online booking that could accommodate our dog travelling with us. Assigned a mobility access room as pet friendly option. Very clean and comfortable. Good safe parking outside room. The water pressure is an issue so do not fill kettle when someone in shower 😅 The breakfast bowls in room are too small. Would recommend and stay again in handy location.

First impressions of this motel is one of welcome . We booked online as they welcomed small dogs so we could take our fur baby with us. The rooms were clean and could not be be faulted.Definitely worth a return visit as Havelock North is a vibrant place to visit and the area is the motel is in a quiet part of town so very relaxing
5 out of 5 stars.
