Came here for a 5-course dinner with my lovely friend. Upon arrival, we were greeted by very friendly staff and were given a complimentary glass of wine. Not knowing much about Hawke’s Bay wines as we are not locals, the waiter was kind enough to give us his recommendation and let us try some of the best wines here. We...

This would be the best high tea we have every had. It is a must do if you are ever in the Bay. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent not to mention the wonderful ambience of this wonderful old hotel.

On arrival we were welcomed by the friendly staff and made to feel very welcome. The main building is magnificent inside and out. The rooms are amazing, spotless and very well presented. The breakfast was first class and the staff were very good. The pool, spa, gym and grounds provide more than enough relaxation. Our stay was a wonderful experience,...

My wife and I are staying at Mangapapa and since it was a travel day opted to dine in the bar for a casual dinner. We were expecting your normal bar dining experience and OMG how "disappointing"😳 We have dined in fine restaurants all over the world and this "bar" experience ranks right up there with the best of them!...

Stayed for two days over one of NZ's public holiday weeks. Excellent accomodation in a tranquil rural setting of the old Watties Homestead. The restaurant was excellent for both breakfast and evening meals. Excellent service. Nice Spa and pool . Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed and the Mangapapa Hotel while playing golf at Cape Kidnappers and visiting the Art Deco town of Napier. Wonderful rooms surrounded by grazing sheep and apple trees. The restaurant's five course meal was spectacular. Nearby vineyards are also and enjoyable visit. We wished we stayed longer.
