The cottage was spotless, well equipped with all the essentials. A real home away from home. Central location and yet absolute silence at night. Very reasonable price given the high quality of the cottage and its furnishings and equipment. Highly recommended !!

Private and peaceful. Wonderful obliging owners Rachel and Tony were great hosts for our group of 8. The bbq area was a secluded spot for pleasant evening drinks and meals. Rooms were immaculate and would recommend this spot as a stop over for anybody visiting Clive. They also have a few bikes for usage/hire, which came in handy for our group.

Stayed for four nights at the beautiful Fantail cottage during our golf trip to Hawkes Bay. We found the cottage to be very very tidy, clean, comfortable and peaceful. The hosts were exceptionally warm and friendly. We will definitely return to Clive Colonial Cottages in the future.

we spent a couple of days at Tui Cottage, everything was excellent, the decor and comfort, the peaceful courtyard around the cottage. the breakfast provisions were more than adequate including the freshly laid eggs. The situation of the cottage was so convenient for exploring the surrounding countryside and towns. Rachel and Tony very good hosts. thoroughly recommend Colonial Cottages, Clive.

Cottage excellent decor and amenities set in beautiful garden and fruit trees. Fresh farm eggs and freedom to pick figs pears apples added the homely touch. We chose to be close to Black barn for a concert. Another added surprise was the close walk to the beach and bikes on site for ride to nearby trail. Close to shops, restaurants etc yet so rural. Definitely will be returning.
