Mangapapa is like one of the best UK country house hotels in the middle of North Island. No expense has been spared by the hotel's wealthy Japanese owner and the rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The highlight for us was dinner which is a set menu - not usually my preference - but on this occasion every course was delicious,...

This is a charming little hotel. They catered to our every need with grace. The accommodations are excellent, food superb, and the grounds are wonderful. We were golfing at Cape Kidnappers (also amazing) and did not want to spend the $$$ at The Farm. This is an excellent choice for those wanting a boutique experience without the high cost of...

We recently spent a couple of nights at this rather exceptional hotel. As repeat visitors, we knew what to expect. What surprised us was that they managed to exceed the wonderful experience we had enjoyed previously. From High Tea to Dinner the level of service is both personable and professional -a quite rare combination to achieve. We left after another...

The whole environment was a focus on peace and understated luxury. The meals were not over the top but uniquely superb, so lovely to enjoy real fresh food. The bathroom toiletries were the most heavenly of natural products I have ever experienced in luxury hotels. (Just a little note - the only thing lacking was the provision of a small...

Lovely garden setting was a nice change from the hussle and bussle elsewhere at this time of year. Left feeling relaxed and a wee bit spoilt :) looking forward...

Reviewed 12 December 2016

David and his team were really great and the property wonderfully maintained and renovated. A couple of things which fell short of expectations and hence not giving a 5 star rating. We were the only guests on couple of days, the reception phone line was oddly unreachable for a turn down service (called twice till the line stopped). Missing replenishment...
