Very clean and safe place to stay. A cheap taxi ride away from Howick, with a warm and friendly bar to welcome us home after a wedding. The free 12 noon late check out was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and wanted to look after our every need.

I stayed here with my daughter for a weekend trip and was very impressed with the standard of the accommodation for the price we paid ($117 per night). The room was comfortable with modern decor and the bathroom was very spacious with plenty of storage room and a separate bath and shower. Our room overlooked the car park but I... More

Helpful,friendly staff who instantly confirmed a future booking there for us when I couldn't find one through booking.com and Expedia. Staff also communicated with the restaurant when we wanted to make changes to our room service menu choice, 30 minutes prior to delivery. We were on level 5 with a lovely view over the lagoon which has walking path around... More

We had a conference here, it was a great location, with good facilities. The bar was a little small for a whole great to mingle there, especially with other hotel guests also there. Some of the rooms downstairs were a little dated and looked like they weren't used very often, the typical 80's fake plants with dust over them in... More

I spent three days at a conference here in February. The facilities were great, lunch was provided each day in the restaurant buffet style and the selection was amazing. The group I was with were all very health conscious and there was many options for everyone to choose from. Bathrooms were clean.

Spent 2 nights at the hotel and was lucky enough to get a room on a higher floor with views over the lagoon. Check in, and for that matter check out, was efficiently and speedily handled. Room was clean and well appointed with a small balcony, which on a nice day would be a good place to sit and vegetate.... More

Waipuna Conference facility is a flexible and tidy hotel that caters well to large groups. The conference side of things was handled well. Breakout rooms were found easily and were well prepared. The rooms were tidy and clean, though our shower was a bit of a dribble. All things considered, a well-placed venue and I would recommend it to those... More

I had the ground floor room facing the Lake. The room was comfortable and opened to the hotel lawn. the amenities at the hotel are good but a microwave inside the room would have helped. The pool is not heated so mostly stays unused. The gym and spa is nice. The bar and restaurant is really good. Serves really nice... More

I stayed at the Waipuna for two nights for a conference. Check in was quick and easy and the room was available when I arrived. The room was a good size and had a small balcony overlooking the lagoon. The lagoon outlook is great if you have to be stuck inside at meetings all day. My room was clean and... More
