We stayed at the Old Oak for 2 nights. We loved the hotel. Youcould see and feel the history of the place but it has been sensitively and stylishly converted into 6 very comfortable rooms. The location is great, being on the edge of Mangonui which is a small but gorgeous old whaling/ trading port on doubtless bay. The town... More

If it was possible I would have given this place 10 stars!!! We stayed in Ruru suite and were very impressed with this cosy little place. Didn't experience any noise problems (no offence to people from previous reviews). Clean, modern and beautiful room. Balcony was heaven. Simon is absolutely marvellous and very caring. We requested for milk and he was... More

Stayed one night, not long enough. Upgraded to front balcony room which was excellent. (Had a look into the room we booked on ground floor which seemed fine as well). Very comfortable bed, small sitting area, and of course the balcony with lovely view (and low roof!!). Fully equipped kitchenette sufficient for breakfast and small evening meal if you wanted...

Dear Old Oak, You are a beautiful old lady but you are very noisy!! We had two nights in Ruru suite which is very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean - well done housekeeping. This suite has two bedrooms and access to the balcony at the front overlooking the beautiful Mangonui Harbour. So pretty. Ruru suite is alongside the Indian Spice... More

We stayed in the Ponga suite upstairs and had the whole balcony to ourselves, the claw foot bath was relaxing for the body and the picturesque views of the bay was wonderful for the soul. Our only regret was having to leave. What a beautiful and relaxing place to be, truly a hidden haven. Simon was very helpful in providing... More

After a long day travelling the beautiful roads of northern NZ, we happened, by chance, to stop outside "The Old Oak". The only room available was the smallest room in the Hotel - we snapped it up as the whole hotel is full of character, restored beautifully and filled with a lovely ambiance. The lakeside setting of Mangonui is magnificent,... More

My husband and I travelled to the far north to get a feel for the area. We had pre booked at the Old Oak before leaving. My first impressions were of how friendly Jean was on the phone. Then there was the prompt email with a few added hints of what to do while we were in the area. Upon... More

What a wonderful surprise this lovely hotel turned out to be! Not having much faith in the far north accomodation after a disappointing B&B in Russell. We were on the move and my husband found The Old Oak on the internet. I must say the professional photos don't do it justice. From the time we arrived we were enveloped with... More
