"Leave the world behind"
The Haven Hotel now has an online booking system.
You can now check if we have space available and even book a room online. Instead of emailing us to ask for availability and then waiting for a response, you can now view our available rooms and the rates for a specific date and even make a confirmed booking.
Whales continue to provide spectacular viewing.
It is mid November and there are still plenty of whales to be seen breaching and blowing. We expect that they will begin their migration south in the next few weeks.
Roads deteriorate with heavy rains.
Recent heavy rains have resulted in an increase in potholes and ruts across the roads. The road is still in reasonable condition, but your drive will take a little longer. We are currently trying to motivate to have the roads graded for the December holidays. The upside is that the reserve is green and lush.
December holiday bookings strong.
The hotel is nearly fully booked for the December holidays, but there is the odd room available. Book soonest to aviod dissapointment..
