Wonderful boutique hotel with glorious views of Auckland and hinterland. Superb restaurant with divine degustation menu using local wines and foods.

Waitakere Estate

Posted Apr 20, 2015
Pros: Great view.
Cons: The property is old and tired and needs to be renovated throughout. Definately note a (self described "boutique hotel).
Location: Good location to visit local wineries, Auckland looks close but is quite a drive...especially during busy drive times.
Note up to our expectations, threadbare carpet, lackluster dining experience...

Waitakere, Wonderful

My son annd I needed to get away to a quiet place for a few days. The staff was absolutely brilliant, the food divine and the accomodation everything that the sire said it would be. Only grizzle is that we couldn't capture the beauty of Auckland at night.

Fabulous, gorgeous hotel. A bit far from city. However, that is the reason it has such beautiful view.

Wer den Regenwald mag ist dort absolut richtig.

Posted Mar 10, 2015
Pros: Ausblick
Cons: Lüfter im Zimmer
Location: Ausserhalb von Auckland bis ins Zentrum braucht man schon mal 45 minuten und länger. Es gibt in der Nähe einen Park zum Wandern
Die Anfahrt ist etwas Schwierig schlechte enge Strassen .Der Ausblick in den Regenwald hervorragend. Keine Klimaanlage etwas Hellhörig. Schöne Anlage für Ruhesuchende optimal.

Mixed customer service

Fantastic location, good food and lovely room. Disappointed with initial reception staff attitude to a mistake by them with the room arrangements and rush to process us through the restaurant.

Waitakere Rocks!

We wanted to be in the rain forest. Hike, bird, etc. It's only 10 minutes from a wonderful nature area with awesome hiking. It's paradise in the sky. You can also walk on the property, and there is a beautiful garden. The surroundings are amazing! The bird life abundant. The staff was very nice and very accommodating. The food was off the charts! Just excellent. Very comfortable. The place itself could use a bit of a face lift (Drapes and fabrics), but we didn't go there for drapes and fabrics, so we had a wonderful time! Would definitely return! The staff rocks!!!
