Went here for birthday surprise. Booking in was easy on line but the welcome inauspicious. $450 deposit seemed high for a stay of one night and the cheeseboard wine orders was not available. Experience improved after that though. Rooms are a bit dated but were clean and tidy. Highlight was meal at restaurant. Try and book on sunset to see...

We stayed here for our 5th wedding anniversary. The room was ok although a tad dated, and came with a couple of rogue cobwebs! The terrace outside our room was also a bit dirty and had cobwebs. In general, the entire place could do with a bit of an update... We were most disappointed by dinner though. We ordered the...

I stayed at the Waitakere Estate for two nights recently while in Auckland on business. I would ordinarily rate my experience as average (it met my basic needs) except for one thing - Waitakere Estate promotes itself as a "boutique" property but too many elements of my experience weren't consistent with what I would consider to be any reasonable definition...

We stayed just one night in transit from Rotorua area to Bay of Islands. We booked what turned out to be their studio apartment with garden view which they called the "art deco" room. It was a hoot. Not quite 1920's but certainly 1960's for anyone interested in retro and vintage, it's recommended. Reminded us of our childhood days. I...

Excellent accommodation with welcoming hosts. The staff were pleasant and went that extra bit to make our stay memorable. The restaurant meals were delicious and were enhanced by the views over Auckland city. Would definitely recommend a short stay here for Aucklanders or a great place to start exploring the West Coast for international visitors. Lounge area and bar very...

I've stayed here previously but my last trip was for a conference. The food is great although a bit expensive. The view is amazing with clean rooms although the staff aren't very friendly which was the biggest disappointment

The driveway is a little scary especially on a motorcycle but just keep following your nose and the carpark is right up by the main entrance. We advise that you arrive in daylight. The staff are first rate and very accommodating. We felt looked after plus they take an interest in helping you get the most out of your stay....

My wife and I stayed here for the first two nights of our trip to NZ and Australia. It was wonderful to arrive here very early in the morning after a 13-hour flight to Auckland from San Francisco . The hotel is an estate about 45 minutes away from the airport. You can see downtown Auckland in the distance ....

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed our beautiful setting and surroundings along with our breakfast offerings. We regret one of our dinner menu items did not meet your expectations. While the dish is not made with any of the proprietory lines mentioned, or any others, the flavours are milder than the traditional home of the...

Surprise birthday stay for 1 night. The hotel complex is situated in the Waitakere Ranges so has amazing views. Lovely clean deluxe room with amazing views of Auckland in the distance. Had a wonderful meal served in style by attentive head waiter and his staff. Surprising little touches made it memorable. Great cooked breakfast, all at a reasonable price. Recommended...
