Review of Mangapapa Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Jul 2021
The staff are informed, friendly and extremely considerate. The building is from the 1800s but the surfaces, fittings and amenities are stylish and shining new. I couldn't recommend the comfort and value highly enough.

    We had a fantastic stay at Mangapapa over the weekend to celebrate our Anniversary, all the staff was very friendly and hospitable. We stayed in the Lady Watties which was nice, it would've been good to have some more outdoor lighting so we could see where we were going when walking to dinner/the spa.

    Thanks again :)

    After staying a couple of nights the good and not so good
    The lady watties rooms are not in keeping with the hotel and are too far away from the spa rooms
    The spa complex was smelly and decided not to use
    The restaurant and food were amazing.. the five course meal with wine was better than craggy range.
    Nice grounds and helpful staff

    My husband and I stayed in the mangapapa Suite for 3 nights. The suite was lovely - spacious, clean and well equipped. The staff were friendly and attentive. Highly recommend this hotel for a peaceful stay in the country, but very close to all that the region has to offer.

    Hi Jaynie,

    Yes we do find that although we are incredibly peaceful and a little oasis in the countryside, we are also in a great location for Hawke's Bay finest vineyards, beaches and visits to local towns like Havelock North. The team are really pleased to read that you enjoyed your time with us and thank you for the five stars. Hope to see you again soon.

    With thanks

    We chose this spot to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. Immaculately kept Hotel, wonderfully helpful staff, beautiful food and our suite (which were were kindly upgraded to) was spacious and very comfortable. We want to come back in the summer to enjoy the outside ambience.

    Room tip: The suites are large and spacious.

    Dear Lordale,

    Thank you so much for your beautiful review. We are so pleased to hear we could make your anniversary celebrations so special and congratulations again! We hope to see you return to the hotel in the Summer. It is a different experience again as our gardens are constantly changing and the Hawke's Bay weather is hard to beat.

    What more could you want high class accommodation and dinner to die for! The 5 course degustation meal was perfect in every way. Portions just the right size so you enjoyed every course. Wine tasting started an evening to be forever remembered.

    Dear Denise,

    Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad the team could provide such a memorable wine tasting - it is a truly special experience to sample our Mangapapa wines that you can't try anywhere else in the country. Our kitchen team work hard to provide high quality food that pair wonderfully with our NZ wines. We hope to see you again soon.
