Hawthorne House is a pleasure to stay at. Consummate hosts who will organise everything you could possibly want. Set in idyllic grounds with a magnificent Elm lined driveway and about 10 minutes drive from Hastings or Havelock North, with some excellent restaurants at either location. A nice touch is the complimentary mini bar and a healthy and delicious breakfast is prepared daily with local produce taking pride of place. The House has some really great art and artefacts. Rabbits gambolling at the hedge line when having breakfast is a plus. Come away refreshed and pampered. Peter and Paul will make your stay memorable.

A lovely garden setting in the country but still within a comfortable distance to all Hawkes Bay points of interest ( Te Mata Peak must be one of NZ’s best vistas) The house and rooms are elegant and well appointed and the lovely vase of flowers a special touch with tasty local complimentary products in the rooms The artwork throughout is superb and the Hosts genial and very generous with their local knowledge , even going the extra mile to hunt down the vintage of a wine that I had particularly enjoyed at the recommended local St George’s Restaurant

A long weekend in Hawkes Bay for us both, staying at Hawthorne House, was a surprise Christmas gift from my husband. From the moment we arrived, our every need (and more) was catered for exceptionally well by our gregarious and generous hosts, Peter and Paul, in their tastefully and beautifully decorated heritage home with stunning artworks, in beautiful surroundings? Peter’s knowledge and relationships with local food growers and artisans (and foods sampled for breakfast), vineyards and other places of interests was exceptional and his suggestions and advice added further to our great experience of Hawkes Bay. What more could you ask for? Thanks for a memorable occasion guys!

We stayed at Hawthorne House for a belated 25th anniversary celebration and it surpassed our highest expectations. Peter and Paul's hospitality was simply superb and their personal touches made our stay truly one to remember forever. Our room was warm, cosy and comfortable in the wintery weather and we felt cocooned in luxury and indulgence - we definitely hope to return well before the next significant anniversary comes along.

Hawthorne House certainly has a number of glowing reviews BUT why? Simply it reflects the very best of hosted lodge accommodation. It is never to be compared with a 5 star hotel as it is in a class of its own in both quality of experience and service. Paul and Peter are wonderful hosts and they deserve all the accolades they get from their guests – WELL DONE CHAPS!!
