St Andrews Escape – Boutique lodge and venue in sunny Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand

Welcome to St Andrews Escape

Luxury Hawkes Bay Accommodation

Our delightful, luxurious, “bed and breakfast” Hawke’s Bay accommodation and self-contained Te Whare cottage offer a very special and tranquil escape from life’s frenetic rush. We are surrounded by absolutely beautiful countryside and the famous vineyards of Hawke’s Bay. We have our own orchard that grows delicious peaches and the lodge looks out over our peaceful pond. Further away is the natural beauty of Te Mata Peak and the distant mountains.

Our Luxury Accommodation Hawke’s Bay

We have kayaks and bicycles for exploring and giving you a good appetite; an outside bath for starlit bathing; a gazebo with a crackling open fireplace and a comfortable lounge that gently engenders a real feeling of home. Our rooms are not only sumptuously distinctive, they are elegantly practical: we are a very distinctive and unique Hawke’s Bay hotel.

We are literally only a few minutes from both Hastings and Havelock North and a pleasant twenty minute drive from Napier. Our luxury accommodation welcomes couples looking for a special treat, small family groups (there is lots to do) or corporate teams wanting to recharge their batteries in convivial and creative surroundings.
