We stayed here for 2 nights in a beautifully appointed two bedroom cottage set amongst the apple orchards just outside Hastings. A great kitchen with all the essentials provided. A huge tv to watch England beat Scotland in the 6 nations!! Big comfortable beds and excellent super clean bathrooms. Max and Carol were hugely hospitable bringing local milk and a gigantic bag of apples for our journey which we have though rally enjoyed. Lots of lovely wineries to visit some with great restaurants. We went to Clearview and really enjoyed the food and wine. We also visited a fascinating cafe and craft and sculpture store. The owner sources a lot of objects from Zimbabwe and they are wonderful. Sadly no space in our luggage.

What a great place to stay in Hastings. Far enough away from the city for peace and quiet, and close enough to all major attractions. Clean and tidy with great space and airiness, well-appointed kitchen, very comfortable and livable self-contained separate cottages. Great service from Carol and Max.

We booked the day before our arrival, and were pleased to find a property like Bluebell available for two nights. Entrance isn't the easiest to find; we had to make a second pass (it's easier to see coming from Havelock North). The cottage was clean and comfortable if a bit small, but this wasn't a real issue. Carol (the owner) was very friendly and accommodating (the Rush Munro's ice cream on arrival is a nice touch!). Our cottage (closest to house) could use more storage. Good, strong, hot shower and very comfortable bed. The cottage had no kitchen (tea/coffee station and small refrigerator only) nor laundry, but you can ask Carol for assistance with these. Carol also can provide coupons for free wine tasting at a nearby vineyard, along with many suggestions for local

I have been staying at the Bluebell for some time now and never been disappointed. The rooms are clean, comfortable and a lot of thought has gone into fitting them out with almost everything on hand you need in the kitchen. The hosts are just lovely - always on hand if you need anything (which usually they have thought of beforehand anyway). The setting is fantastic with orchard and paddocks surrounding the accommodation and its just a short drive to Havelock or the motorway.

Friendly and welcoming hosts. Clean. About 5km from Havelock North. Good proximity to local areas. Awesome shower and comfy bed . Nice view out towards the paddocks and orchard. A home away from home. Would stay again.
