Kathryn H wrote a review Apr 2021
We happened upon an online escape deal for Hawthorne House and booked. For once, we didn't do any prior research, so it was a lovely surprise to arrive and discover the delight that is Hawthorne House. We were blown away by the sumptious decor, friendly hosts and generous welcome. We had everything we could possibly need, delicious beverages, yummy snacks, a warm, comfortable room and welcoming atmosphere. Peter and Paul were so helpful with their advice about activities and eateries. The history and story behind the property is fascinating and you will enjoy the array of art in every room. The breakfasts are to die for, especially the freshly baked croissants! We couldn't have asked for a better experience and would highly recommend.

Queenstown, New Zealand
Paul and Peter are wonderful hosts and justifiably proud of the house they have created. Rooms are very comfortable with extensive garden outlook and large covered decks. There's lots of laughs but also, relaxing quiet. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts are superb and plentiful. Be warned. Highly recommended and our destination when next in the Bay.

Greytown, New Zealand
We had two luxurious nights at Hawthorne House end restored and appointed and decorated by Peter and Paul. Our welcome by Paul started our adventure. Everything is quality and taste. Our spacious room has an ensuite with heated floor and towel rails and all bits and pieces you need in a bathroom. Snacks, teas and coffee, complentary wines and beer and apple juice. Very comfortable bed and good pillows. Dressing gowns...and this is just our room and verandah! Breakfast is a feast of locally grown and produced products, their own eggs, linen, crystal, silver. And you have the use of a most gracious and delightfully lit living room full of art. Paintings, sculptures, objets de vertu. Music softly in the background...sweet classical for breakfast and cafe style jazz in the evening. Peter and Paul are charismatic, anxious to please, amusing, professional and friendly. The welcoming sunset drinks first night with another couple staying we had vague associations with years ago (this is New Zealand after all) completed the holiday atmosphere. Thoroughly recommend this treasure. Best to have a big lunch or wine tour in the daytime and relax here in the evening is our suggestion. Top marks for every thoughtful thing Peter and Paul!

Dennis J wrote a review Feb 2021
Hamilton, New Zealand
It is a big old house in spacious grounds not far from Hastings and Havelock North. Peter and Paul who own it and were our hosts bring a very high level of commitment to keeping guests happy and contented. Our room was spacious with all the stuff you expect, and a bit more, which included a nice range of drinks and snacks that were covered in the room rate. As usual they didn't quite complete the trifecta of sufficient luggage rack space, effective bedside lights, and enough shelf space in the ensuite, but they got close. (Shelf space was a bit constructed.) It was a nice room and we slept well. The guest lounge was a highlight and if you stay here make sure you get the stories behind the artworks here. The welcoming drinks on the first night were fun and generous. The breakfasts covered all we could want and I particularly liked the Zealong tea. There are more than enough very good restaurants within a short drive and the availability of a limousine service was great. Hawthorne House was a very good experience and has to be highly recommended.

Hi Dennis Thanks for this great review! It was lovely to have you both here at Hawthorne House and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay so much. We're thrilled we got close to the trifecta - two out of three is a lot better than none out of three! There is always a tension between providing glasses, tissues, sanitary bags, shower caps, makeup remover, cotton wool buds, spare toilet rolls, facecloths, hand sanitiser, tooth brush holders AND enough shelf space in ensuite bathrooms for guests and their own toiletries. But we're up for the challenge and on your next visit we will see if we can surprise and delight you and win this elusive trifecta!! We loved sharing the stories of our art collection with you all and glad that you enjoyed the welcome drinks and Zealong teas selection, the limousine service and the local restaurants and wineries. We look forward to your return visit to Hawthorne House. Cheers Peter and Paul
