The food at the wedding was delicious and the breakfast served in our room was top notch. The event planner, Renee, is wonderful, her presence and serenity inspire trust and confidence as she competently brings together all the elements and her manner during the entire occasion impressed us.

My daughter had her wedding at Auckland's Waitakere Estate, Heritage Boutique Hotel. Right through all the processes of choosing, booking and discussing the event with Renee went smoothly! Renee suggested a wedding celebrant Melanie Kerr who turned out to be a very sweet, understanding and fantastic person who took the two of them through the ceremony with such grace we could not have asked for anyone better. From the moment the bridal party arrived they were pampered and supported by Renee and the hotel staff. We booked in, went to our perfect room and got ready. Our event went off without a hitch with Renee overseeing all aspects. The food was absolutely great!!!!!! The dishes we choose off the menu were enjoyed by all, with no negative comments to us afterwards. The relaxed way that Renee managed everything for us was settling and we could enjoy ourselves without worry. We stayed the night and were awarded with a great breakfast in the morning with the chef introducing himself and we were able to thank him for his great efforts. Thank you Auckland's Waitakere Estate, we had a ball and am very impressed by your beautiful views and comportable rooms. We will recommend this venue to anybody and everybody! Thank you!

Everything was wonderful. The only disappointment was the weather so I missed out on the garden Wedding I was hoping for, fortunately the little chapel was a lovely alternative. The only delay was caused by the florist who turned up late delaying the ceremony, however the venue coordinator Renee, was wonderful, she got everything up and running and back on track in no time and was there throughout making sure everything went smoothly. The service staff were great, always where you needed them. The Chef was very helpful and accommodating. Taking the time to meet with us and discuss options around tailoring the menu to our culture and tastes. All the guests were smitten with the location and views which was great as many were from overseas. We could see the best of the New Zealand native bush as well as the whole city by day, and of course the city lights by night. They even enjoyed the drive through the rainforest to get there. Having the accommodation made it all just perfect and the Romeo and Juliet balcony on our room was darling. Our Wedding has been a hot topic among our friends and family ever since. Thank you Auckland's Waitakere Estate!
