Yes, it's a quirky hotel - a little like fawlty towers, OK a lot like it - but it's home for us when we visit Auckland. The estate setting is breath-taking - looking out over a fern forest and down to the lights of Auckland. The lawns are lovely, and there are nearby hikes. The rooms with balconies have been redone in the last three years - the balconies all have great views and are perfect for late afternoon wine drinking. We are a little daring - not afraid to turn on the sauna and use the unheated pool (lots of sunlight so not too bad). A favorite treat: driving over to Titirangi for breakfast - or all the over the hill to the beach at Piha to watch the surfers.
Check their online deals - you can get very reasonable rates.
