My partner and I are from photographers Tauranga and decided last minute after a job in Hamilton we'd take a night out in raglan somewhere nice. We booked online and turned up within 2 hours. We've had some experiences lately of the photos on the websites grossly misrepresenting the reality of the hotel.
Thankfully, Waoku was everything the pictures claimed it would be. The service was spot on. When we walked in the guy on the desk greeted me by name (from the booking).
Not only that, we got a free upgrade. We had a quick scout around the other rooms and they are all beautifull. You can see down to the ocean while having a spa on your deck.
You get to choose from a awesome menu. We both had eggs bene and the bacon was obviously homekill and the bread fresh.
I have nothing bad to say about this place at all. 5 is not a high enough rating for this hotel. If you want something special, go here.
