Basecamp Millhills Lodge - the place to stay and explore Hawke's Bay!

Luxury accommodation in a contemporary country retreat located in the very heart of New Zealand wine country.

Only a short journey from Havelock North Village in New Zealand's Hawke’s Bay, Millhills Lodge offers luxury accommodation and a boutique private venue for weddings, corporate functions, family festivities and reunions.

Havelock North Village is now one of Hawke’s Bay’s premier attractions with its boutique shopping, cafe' culture and unique atmosphere and with long hot summers and clear blue skies in the middle of winter - no matter whichever time of the year you visit, Hawke’s Bay offers a veritable smorgasbord of great things to do: amazing food, wine and internationally acclaimed vineyards, Napier’s art-deco architecture, the golden sands of Ocean Beach and Waimarama, the weekly Hastings Farmers Market and the world's largest mainland Gannet colony at Cape Kidnappers adjacent to one of the world’s top 50 golf courses. Hawke's Bay also hosts a wonderful array of events such as Horse of the Year (HOY), FAWC! and the Mission Concert weekend, as well as Art Deco Weekend and The Big Easy.

At Millhills Lodge we offer the discerning traveller a unique respite with quality accommodations and facilities. Your accommodation includes a private guest dining room with north facing guest lounge and open log fire, SKY network flat-screen television and a beautiful outdoor spa area over-looking the adjoining farm land with panoramic views to the ranges and down the plains to the twinkling lights in the evening of Hastings and Napier beyond.

Our nightly room rate includes a cooked or continental breakfast and we can also provide casual luncheons, picnic hampers or a truly New Zealand evening feast prepared with ingredients produced in Hawke’s Bay by our own cook.

Transportation can be provided to and from Napier Airport to the Lodge
