Everything is wonderful at Delamore Lodge. From being picked up from the ferry to the moment we had to be returned to the Auckland ferry back, we felt very special.
It is clear that everyone of the multi tasking staff care very much about giving guests a wonderful experience.The food is excellent, the chef Brenton has a special way with food. My massage was one of the best I have had.. The infinity pool is wonderful too, what views.
We will be back to have a wonderful time again as soon as we are able.

We visited for two night as part of our honeymoon and really enjoyed our stay. Brenton, the chef, was the highlight as his meals were perfection. We really enjoyed his canapés and drinks before the memorable dinner. We had reservations the next evening at Mudbrick Vineyards and wish we would have stayed at the lodge for another meal instead
Breakfast was such a treat and the views from our dining table were fantastic. The views can't be beat as the lodge is on top of the hill.

I would prefer to have updated carpet in the room, but that's just my personal preference.

***I left behind my diamond ring on accident and the staff contacted our next hotel to let them know. The ladies at Delamore were kind enough to take the ring into Auckland and overnight the ring to me. Now that was impressive!

We stayed at Delamore Lodge for our final getaway before the arrival of our first born. We felt so special right from the moment we were picked up from the ferry. The staff were so personable and friendly. Our massage and facial were relaxing and just what we needed. The food was the best that we’ve ever had! We only stayed for one night but left feeling as though we had been on holiday for a week. Highly recommend this place! We will definitely be back.

We are a group of friends who have just returned from the most AMAZING, MAGNIFICENT, DEVINE experience at Delamore Lodge that you could ever imagine. We have really struggled to find the right words to use to explain our experience so that it will do Delamore the justice it most definitely deserves! From the moment you arrive at Delamore Lodge it’s pure stature and physical presence draws you in. The cleverly designed buildings blend seamlessly in with the most breathtaking scenery, that is second to none!! The stresses of ‘real’ life immediately disappear as you start to relax and unwind in all that Delamore has to offer. A huge thank you to the amazing staff who made our stay all that more special. Thank-you Sarah, Delamore’s Office Manager, for the warmth and enthusiasm you obviously have for Delamore and Waiheke. The way you greeted us when we arrived and treated us throughout our stay made us feel very much at home, you’re AWESOME!! Brenton, wears many different hats at Delamore but one of our favourites is Chef Extraordinaire, thank-you for being you! The meal you prepared for us on Saturday night was out of this world, for food to look and taste that good shows the passion and how much of yourself you put into the food you prepare and present. It was an experience none of us will ever forget – you’ll always be our Number One Masterchef!!! :) Camilla, a smile says a thousand words and your smile certainly does! Thank-you for the service you provided to us during our dinner and breakfast ‘experiences’ it was lovely getting to know you. For those of you reading this and thinking about booking a stay at Delamore we would 110% recommend adding the 5 course dining experience to your list of must things to do at Delamore Lodge. Thank-you to Sally & Cushla also whose massages and spa treatments started our stay off with a real element of luxury. A big thank-you to the person who looks after making the rooms and apartment look so clean and luxurious, they were absolutely spotless!! Roselyn, Delamore is an amazing credit to you and the vision and hard work you have put into making it the Luxury Lodge that it surely is, thank-you for creating such a spectacular place that allows others to enjoy, it is simply out of this world! We'll be back for sure!! See you next year, Pip, Tony, Linda & Craig xxxx

Dear Pip, Tony, Linda and Craig. You guys were such a pleasure to host, it wasn't even a job. I'd have to say that this is the nicest review I've ever seen - thank you so much! We'd love to host you again - you were so much fun! Arohanui. Sarah, Brenton, Camila, Roselyn, Jake and Louis (the dogs).

We, and another couple had 3 beautiful nights here ..... spectacular scenery, very comfortable rooms and the staff were most attentive. As purely constructive criticism .... it would be great if there were access to bikes (just a couple) to add to the experience as the village is a lovely walk, however there is so much more to explore just a short distance away. For the money we paid it would be fair to offer some little extras ..... like maybe a cheese board, or even a simple picnic basket for lunch. We did however enjoy Brenton’s fabulous canapés and a beverage before dinner each night .... SUPERB. And the breakfasts ...... to die for!! 👌🏻 We had the most amazing 5 course degustation dinner which would have been lovely with a paired wine however these are only small little touches that add to an experience like this. Just food for thought. 😊. I would love to come back again .... waking up to that view was breathtaking.... in fact any time of the day was magnificent. The owner of this exclusive little piece of paradise has made a huge effort in lots of little touches around the place. All in all it was such a lovely place and I would highly recommend a stay here.
Thank 2016helenjoy
