“Beautiful and relaxing!”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

We had a wonderful time at The Ambers! Gerard and Diane were friendly, attentive, and helpful, and both the indoors and outdoors were beautiful. Gerard cooked us up a made-to-order delicious breakfast as well. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The attic room is larger but a bit warmer - in summer months you may want a lower room if possible.

Our hosts were wonderfully welcoming and accommodating. We had a fantastic night away in one of the most romantic rooms I've ever had the pleasure in staying in. The grounds were beautiful and I felt totally relaxed from the moment we got there. We even had our breakfast brought out to us, which was a lovely bonus! I will recommend the lovely little piece of paradise to friends and family. Thank you Gerard & Diane for such great hospitality.

We stayed in the Gite- beautifully decorated, with everything you could require for a short self catering stay. Comfortable bed, lovely shower room with fluffy towels, dressing gowns, free WiFi. But the best "feature" by far is the hosts, Gerard and Diane who were so welcoming. Our last night in NZ and the best B&B. I'm sorry we weren't able to stay longer.

Thank you very much for your lovely comments. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you both and we hope you had a good and comfortable trip home and that the English winter isn't too much of a shock after your sojourn in Australia and New Zealand.

Thank you to Gerard & Diane for a wonderful weekend - amazing hospitality - and room to move for five couples - much better than being cramped in motel/hotel rooms! And just a
quick drive up the motorway from Auckland. Tasty breakfasts to get you going (and keep you going) for most of the day!! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

The Ambers is truely a magical place, I felt instantly relaxed once arriving here for Alicia & Kent's wedding. The hosts Gerard & Diane are everything you could wish for, nothing too much trouble - and all the personal touches.

I actually can't wait to come and stay again & have recommended to family & friends !

Thank you so much for your kind words Holly! It's wonderful to hear that the three of you had such a good time and we certainly look forward to welcoming you once again in our home. Perhaps next time you can try the Toile de Jouy Room or the Santorini Room which are also very romantic places to stay. We wish you all the very best for the festive season and a great start to the new year! See you next time!!

The ambers is truly beautiful and I would not hesitate to stay here again. I had the privelage of being a bridesmaid at a wedding held at the Ambers. Every aspect of the day was thoughtful and stunning. The grounds are well cared for and the hosts just delightful. Truly wonderful and so close to Auckland city (though you feel a world away).

Many many thanks for your kind and warm words! It was a delight having you here and we are very happy that all went well. We are glad that you liked the Gite and enjoyed the pre-wedding evening with the lovely bride, nicely ensconced in a very private hide-away. We look forward to seeing you again some day!

I just want to say a big thank you to Gerard and Diane for everything they did to assist with my wedding day.
Myself and the bridesmaids stayed in the gite suite the night before our wedding and it was gorgeous, very private but so comfortable and homely at the same time. Diane made us most welcome, she had flowers in the room and plenty of food for breakfast and a bottle of bubbles on arrival. The couple were so accommodating to make our wedding so special. We wanted our private vow service at the ambers in their magical gardens followed by a high tea. Gerad and Dianne ensured the day ran smoothly and were so helpful to ensure our day was just perfect.
The gardens looked amazing, and all our guests commented on what a wonderful service and beautiful home they have. We couldn’t have asked for more help from the both of you to make the day so great. Nothing was out of the question we even had our little puppy come for a few photos before the service. Such lovely people and hope we can stay there on our one year anniversary with our wedding party.
I cannot wait to come back!! Ali and Kent
