Hastings is home to the North Island's wine producing area. This town is situated in Hawke's Bay, the "fruitbowl" of New Zealand. Picturesque in it's outlook, Hastings is your place to be if you like all things wine.
Hastings Accommodation is fun! Lots of little cottages are dotted around the region, and you can even stay on many vineyards which offer accommodation. If you are looking for less-fun options then of course there are hotels and motels closer to the main centre.
