Wonderful hideaway in Hawke’s Bay

Review of Mangapapa Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Feb 2023
This hotel is superb.
The acreage property is secluded with magnificent trees and gardens lining the entrance with sheep quietly grazing beside the drive. Our first floor room was luxurious with a beautiful outlook onto the gardens. The set menu restaurant was also first class with a great chef and very reasonably priced quality wine by the glass was a bonus.
The staff were all friendly and eager to please. All this and only 5 minutes from Havelock North.

    We had a wonderful stay here for 2 nights. The staff went over and above to look after us. My husband needs a gluten free diet and the chefs were amazing. He had beautiful GF bread each day and his evening meal was made GF too. The meal was exceptional as was the wine.
    Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and lots of it.
    Our room, Andora was very clean and well appointed with robes and slippers. The shower was good and plenty of hot water.
    The grounds are a delight and the hotel is ideal if you want the world to just stop for a while.
    Well done Mangapapa we would happily stay again.

    We visited New Zealand from the States in November on a month-long international family vacation in which we visited Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji. We visited Hawke's Bay area for my husband and adult sons to play golf at Cape Kidnappers and chose the Mangapapa Hotel from the Web site and excellent reviews. The hotel was incredible and even better than we even expected. Our sons commented on the elegance and excellence of the hotel and the surrounding area. Staff was very attentive. The manager arranged transportation to and from the airport and back and forth to Cape Kidnappers. We had the 5-course dinner with the wine tasting which was a private affair for just our family in the restaurant and was very special. My husband and I stayed in the beautiful Macon Suite in the main building (historic homestead) and our sons in the nearby building in the Lady Wattie's Suite with two rooms and two queen beds. Upon arrival to the suite, we had treats waiting for us. The historic hotel was very peaceful with sheep grazing in the nearby pasture. Staying at the beautiful boutique Mangapapa Hotel was certainly a highlight of our trip.

    We stayed here as part of our Backroads trip and it was exceptional. It's a beautiful property and the service is top notch. We stayed in both the Macan Room and the Garden Suite. The Macan Room is elegant with a sitting area, gorgeous king sleigh bed with chandelier above, and a big and beautiful marble bathroom with big shower and separate soaking tub. The Garden Suite is a huge 2 story suite with living room, fireplace, and kitchenette downstairs and a full king bedroom and en suite upstairs. The beds were super comfortable and I loved the quality of the bedding. The staff was very attentive, professional and helpful. And the food was delicious. We had a 5 course dinner one night and it was equal to any meal I've had at top restaurants around the world. I highly recommend this hotel!!

    Wow in every way!! Beautiful kind greeting by the General Manger Michael after even taking a late night booking from me the night before. Michael was so informative as well. From the beautiful gardens to the clean gorgeous rooms what more could you want. If I could give an 11/10 I would. Peaceful, elegant and charming!! I feel like we are in heaven for a few nights. We hit the jackpot!

    Dear Lydia,

    That is the ultimate compliment, to hear you will return again! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Mangapapa; it certainly is a little tranquil oasis as you come up the driveway to the homestead, immersing into the Hawke's Bay countryside. We love to work seasonally with our food and fresh eggs from our own Mangapapa chickens for breakfast. Great to see the team looked after you and will pass this feedback onto them as they will be so happy to hear it.
    We look forward to welcoming you back again.

    Kind regards,
    The Mangapapa Team
