Heritage Hotel Waitakere Review


This 4 star hotel sits atop the Waitakere Ranges looking back towards the city. It’s a beautiful quiet spot great for anyone looking to unwind away from the city. It’s more for couples getting away for a night or two than business travellers. Make sure you check out nearby Piha Beach.


The location is a 9/10. But not for everyone. It’s a beautiful spot in the forest well away from any road noise. It’s also well away from civilisation. It’s a 35 minute drive from Waitakere Estate to the CBD at night with no traffic. You can double that at peak times. This is a place to go and stay and enjoy the Waitakere’s and West Coast Beaches. If you’re commuting into the cbd from here you’ll get sick of the drive pretty fast.

Restaurants & Bars

There’s a restaurant and bar in the hotel. The bar opens at 5PM. The restaurant has great views over Auckland City but isn’t open all day which is a shame as there’s not much else nearby.

Accommodation Standard

The standard of accommodation offered at Heritage Estate is a 7/10. It’s a little run down and not as grand as it looks in some of the pictures but it does have a certain romance about it, so good for couples.


  • Bit run down.
  • Not as luxurious as some guests expect.
