I booked on line several months in advance and was asked for a deposit. I explained that it would cost me more than the hotel room to send the money from the UK and they said that was no problem. I called in on my way to Havelock and my booking was held in good faith. The hotel is quite basic but clean and comfortable and 5 minutes from the airport which is great as we had an early flight. The staff were friendly and helpful and it was a pleasant walk into town where we had dinner.
