High tea on Sunday

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Feb 2024
High tea was absolutely to die for. A vast array of beautifully presented deliciousness on a number of plates. I would highly recommend and I will be returning again. The staff and service was exceptional and the restaurant was of the highest standard. Thank you.

High Tea 1pm - great food and service. Thanks to Tony for an interesting tour and background on the Library environment and other spaces.
Nice balance of flavours from paua, venison, smoked kahawai, lolly cake and lamingtons!
The design of the room, furniture, and everything makes for a great ambience

Thank you for choosing dine with us in The Libraries by The Hotel Britomart. I appreciate you taking the time to review your experience with us.

When bringing the The Libraries to life, we placed much emphasis on the design, look and feel as well as working closely with New Zealand suppliers and manufacturers to showcase the very best of our wonderful country.

We are very lucky to have such a genuine, knowledgeable, and friendly team and The Libraries lounge Manager in Tony - very much the style of our proudly kiwi owned hotel and kingi restaurant.

Our incredible culinary team lead by Executive Chef Andrew have designed a menu that is truly kiwi and its wonderful to see that you enjoyed the delectable selection so much.

We very much look forward to welcoming you back to The Hotel Britomart in the not too distant future.

Hotel was well maintained, comfortable and staff were pleasant and helpful. It could not have been better position-wise being close to the port with plenty of restaurants and shops close by. The bonus was the restaurant who served us an excellent dinner. If we didn’t live on the other side of the world we would be back for sure.

The hotel was perfect. The rooms were equipped with every need. The decor and style of the hotel was warm and welcoming, as was the staff. It was a wonderful stay. I highly recommend. The location is unbeatable as well! Every amazing restaurant I wanted to go to was right within walking distance, as was shopping and sightseeing. Loved the Britomart!

He hotel is in a perfect location that is walkable to many of the best restaurant. The Britomart is also beautifully decorated while still being very comfortable! Would stay again if visiting Aukland.

Stunning facility. Zen-like environment that is chic, simple, clean, eclectic, artsy, located in a fantastic spot with service that is over the top for the price. If you are looking for wood tones, gorgeous linens, beautifully designed but small quarters where everything has been thought out to the last cm, this place is for you. It feels like a spa in Aspen yet footsteps away (like 50 yards) from world class dining and shopping. The lobby is surreal - quiet, peaceful, classy, and impeccably decorated to invite calm and serenity.

Guests were polite and courteous - not the inconsiderate slobs you get at chain motels. Only one woman thought it ok to put her bare feet on the couch in the main lobby. Hey - you cannot expect everyone to have manners!

Room tip: All the rooms are the same size. Unsurprisingly, the views get better the higher you go. Five (?) suites at the top for more space/views.
