Overnight work trip, no option for two single beds available so a trundled bed was provided. This was very uncomfortable and not a great night sleep after a long day. The rest of the amenities were good and hot showers. We did not try the pool or spa.

The first reviews I read of this accomodation stated that "it is located on a hill." Well in reality that "hill "turned out to be about 150-200metres of a very steep incline which gave me and my wife the cardio workout of our entire trip to Waiheke. Its a fairly steep incline, with the reception located at the very top,...

When you're paying a certain amount of money for a resort stay you do have some reasonable expectations. Unfortunately these expectations were not met. Starting with the positives the villa itself is very spacious by resort standards and the furnishings reasonable modern and comfortable. The pool area is beautiful with a stunning ocean view (however being a resort a snack,...

1st time in Waiheke Island and we had to book this accommodation as we were travelling in trio hence not much options. The stay was the most expensive of our 12 nights stays in New Zealand and it was the most challenging to navigate to. the whole place on slopes and we had to hike up to the top where...

The hotel is situated up on a hill and so provides beautiful views across the valley and out to the ocean. The restaurant served good quality food and is a pretty spot. As a hotel on a relatively small island we would not expect flash amenities, but there were a few basics that were a bit disappointing. The shower was...

We enjoyed a lovely dinner a couple of evenings ago. The view is to die for and the service was first rate. Newly redecorated to a very tasteful level Certainly worth a visit when you are on the island.

This is one of the few hotels on the island because there is limited water for large hotels. Most accommodations are B&Bs, 3-4 room places, etc. The efficiency apts were comfortable and clean with refrigerator/ cooktop, sink & stove. Be aware it is built on a steep hillside as are most places on Waiheke Island. The staff was wonderful. They...

We were very excited to be staying at this beautiful accommodation over the weekend for a wedding, however we felt quite disappointed. When we arrived at the hotel and tried to check in (1.40pm) we were told no, we aren't allowed to check in until 2pm. We appreciated that with many rooms to clean etc. that 11am check in would...

From a rainy Auckland to a sunny Waiheke. We immediately got informed by the friendly staff that the pool was not working. For that they offered free breakfast. Before we booked I read that one night wouldn't be enough. So I booked two. Could have stayed at least a week. Palm Beach, the food, the wineries, the scenery, our cottage,...

Stayed here over a weekend in January for 2 nights in a Two Bedroom Apartment. The views from the room were wonderful, looking down to the beach. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was delicious, the pork belly salad made a great summer night dish and the steak was cooked to perfection. Reception staff was very helpful...
