We had an amazing stay at Mangapapa Hotel including a 5 course dinner. The surroundings of the hotel are absolutely stunning as it blends in amongst fruit orchards. The hotel feels like a modern manor featuring unique individual suites with all the amenities one can think of. The 5 course dinner we had was simply to die for. I still... More

We spent 3 nights at the hotel and enjoyed every minute of it. The moment we arrived we were warmly greeted by David the manager and shown around the hotel. We were shown the amazing art work and a trip to the below ground wine cellar was a highlight. The degustation dinner was one of our best dining experiences ever,... More

We came to Napier to see friends. Mangapapa is a lovely place to stay. Breakfast was beautiful in a wonderful conservatory. We did not have the dinner as it looked to be a lot of food, but otherwise a super stay.

We stayed over Easter and were blown away by the standard of the hotel, the very friendly staff and the very spacious rooms. The location is also ideal - close to the vineyards and restaurants in Havelock North. We will definitely come back the next time we are in Hawke's Bay.

This hotel has recently been renovated and has a lovely relaxed feeling. The staff are very attentive with an eye for the little details that make your stay special. Even if you are not staying the night I would highly recommend their restaurant for either a special dinner or high tea with friends during the day.

The location is stunning. The whole team are so attentive. High tea is a must do. We had the Garden room and well worth the little extra. Cannot praise it highly enough. If you are looking to stay Don't go elsewhere. We didn't want to leave. 2 days /3 nights isn't enough..
