Really nice place to stay for a conference. Restaurant was good breakfast lunch and dinner. Enjoyed some really good meals here. Love the lobby bar. Really nice feel to it. Great walking trails in the rain forest. Thoroughly recommend it.

Purchased a package which included breakfast - definitely on the pricey side just for one night but didn't mind as it was our anniversary. Set in a beautiful location with lovely gardens it looked lovely from outside, however once inside the decor was very tired. Our room was stifling hot and with no air-con or even a fan we had...

First a huge caveat...we really enjoyed our stay at the Waitakere Estate and would 100% recommend. But.....to live up to it's "Boutique" claim it needs just a few tweaks. Service at reception from check in onwards was superb, friendly and helpful, whilst our needs were minimal(an overview of the estate and walks and a taxi booking) they were dealt with... More

We had been very busy tourists in NZ for a week and decided to splurge on a high note in what looked like a fantastic boutique room for our final night. Waitakere Estate proved to be an excellent choice. Just driving up and around to find the accommodation was terrific. The light rain added to the beauty of the surroundings.... More

We had a lovely stay here, only 45 minutes from where we live but felt like we'd got away. The views are stunning and the grounds of the estate are lovely. We enjoyed a bush walk, played petanque, swam in the pool, played squash and just relaxed. Enjoyed delicious food at the in-house restaurant. Prices perhaps slightly on the high... More

Had a lovely stay in the estate accommodation. The views from the room were amazing, being able to see from South Auckland to the North Shore, as well as Rangitoto and the Bridge. The birdlife was prolific, so lovely to see kereru flying past. An olde world experience, but the meals in the restaurant were outstanding, being well plated and... More

I booked this with the anticipation of something special. We had 3 rooms and they were fine. Great views and well maintained. When we went for dinner it did become a bit Fawlty Towers like as per a previous review. A bar with no coke or lemonade and concern about whether there was more than 1 bottle of tomato juice???The...

Beautiful location. Set in the beautiful Waitakere bush with amazing views over the bush and across to Auckland City, viewing Sky Tower and Rangitoto. The staff were very friendly and efficient and the drive out there is scenic too. A lovely change from city hotels and if you have time you can go for lovely walks into the bush.

We had a lovely stay at the Waikatere Estate last week. The grounds are beautiful and the suite had an incrediable view. We were the only patrons at dinner our first night, but they served us impeccably and the food was delicious. Breakfast was excellent, as well. Although the rate was the highest we paid in New Zealand, they charged... More
