Stayed here the first two nights of our honeymoon based upon a friend's recommendation and without knowing much about the hotel or Waiheke. The Boatshed is a premium boutique hotel but upon walking in it's immediately obvious to see where that premium is going. I was going to write lots of detail as to exactly why this hotel cannot be...

This hotel was the nicest hotel my husband and I have ever stayed in. We were greeted by Jonathan and Sharon when we arrived and they were around the whole stay. We felt at home and Sharon is absolutely one of the nicest people. You never feel like you are inconveniencing her. Everything we asked for was provided and the... More

We have just had the most wonderful, relaxing weekend at the Boatshed to celebrate our anniversary. We booked the honeymoon package which was perfect - this included the loan of the jeep for a day to visit the local wineries. There is such attention to detail in both the decor and surroundings. The book I bought to read didn't get... More

Helen and I had a one night visit to the Boatshed in July. We have been lucky enough to stay in various Relais@Chateaux and Small Leading Hotels of the World, in France, Italy, Switzerland and England in years gone by. The Boatshed is right up there without quite the price tag. We were met at the ferry, upon arrival we... More

The Boatshed in a simple word can be described as AMAZING! The views, the service, the space and appointment of the room and the food were just brilliant. The whole property has been well planned and appointed. Even though it is a lodge style communal space for dinning the owners definitely had privacy in mind for the guests. If you... More

Me and my partner stayed at the Boatshed back in April in the Bridge room for the weekend as part of the Romantic retreat package. Everything was incredible, the service was friendly, relaxed and still very professional. The food was fresh and delicious and full of variety, and the wine toped it all off. The room was comfortable, quiet and... More

We had just got engaged and had 3 days staying in the Lighthouse at the Boatshed, Waiheke Island. We were welcomed with a plate of cheese and some beautiful wine. Immediately, we knew this would be a great place to relax! Jonathan and the staff were extremely accommodating, including cooking some spectacular food! This included a high end dinner that... More

I loved this place. We were welcomed by a glass of wine and lovely plate of local cheeses, crackers and dried fruits and encourage to sit and enjoy the view over the bay. We stayed in the lighthouse room which gave the most amazing views around. The dinner was delicious, using very fresh ingredients grown on the property. We raved... More

The Boatshed is a stunning property with beautiful views. We stayed in a Boatshed room, which was lovely, comfortable, with lots of nice little touches, such as providing a beach bag with hats and suncream etc. The whole aesthetic is fantastic, you walk in and just feel very relaxed. The greeting on arrival was friendly and generous, with tea, cake... More

The experience was fabulous. Of course I am a reader of the bad reviews first and let me point out all of those were many years ago! They definitely have straightened out. We had the jet lag package plus a couple of days... We were picked up from the ferry, staff pulled our luggage out of the car took it... More
