We stayed at Mangapapa as a special overnight visit on our way north. Catherine and her team made us very welcome and the surrounding are a spectacular country stop. Although not far from Havelock you get the real feeling of a country estate.
The rooms are of a very high standard as one would expect from a petit hotel of this style and we enjoyed the attentive service of the staff during our stay.
The absolute highlight of the stay was the Dinner - in my view world class and I cant recommend it too highly. From the whitebait starter to the final dessert wine it was truly outstanding food, very skillfully presented. Even the breakfast was something special. I'ts not often you get home made crumpets on the menu for breakfast.
So if you cant get in to stay I do recommend that you go there for dinner as it is really something that was better than I have eaten in many top class restaurants around the world. And in gorgeous surroundings too.
Thanks to Catherine and her team for a great evening.
