We've just had a very comfortable stay at Lawn Cottages in the Hawkes Bay. We were travelling with our in laws and hired two of the cottages. We stayed at the larger Hydrangea cottage and our in laws stayed at Magnolia (which had nice new carpet). We thought the cottages were very comfy and we had everything we needed - even fans which were appreciated on the warm summer evenings. There was nice linen on the (comfortable) beds and found the fresh flowers was a nice touch. We loved the big gardens, ponds and access to the vegetable garden and fruit trees. Our daughter loved gong to pick veggies for dinner and I loved the fresh grapefruits. The hosts Jaquie and Ski were lovely - so friendly and helpful. And the location was handy to Havelock North, Hastings and Napier and the beach (not really a swimming beach though) was a short walk away.
There were a few things which held me back from rating higher - a dishwasher in the kitchen (hate having to do dishes on holiday!), the bathroom was a bit dated - none of us were a fan of the open showers. And some of the outdoor furniture around the property looked a bit run down. But that wasn't a major concern to us.
Overall thought this was a nice place to stay.More
