My husband and I arrived on Waiheke Island with some friends from America. We had seen Delamore Lodge advertised on the internet and decided to stay there for a night. We were not disappointed at one aspect of our stay there… in fact we booked to stay another two nights because we were so impressed… the service was exceptional and the food was exquisite – it was the best place I have ever stayed in my life. The sea views from the rooms were stunning, together with the room service. The pool was a beautiful temperature and in a fabulous location. I had a massage whilst there, and again the service was immaculate – she was outstanding…. it was a full-bodied massage and if I remember rightly I fell asleep!!
All in our entire trip to Delamore Lodge was like a fairy tale, absolutely stunning and trust me you won’t be disappointed!! Tauranga, New Zealand.
“The most luxurious place in New Zealand”
We had our 20 person wedding at the Delamore Lodge in January 2011 and our expectations were exceeded in every way. I booked the venue over the internet (we are from the US) and saw it for the first time the day before the wedding. Everything was AMAZING: the service, the food (especially exceptional), and the view. The view was breathtaking at all times of day. Our wedding was made truly special because of the dedication and attention of the staff. I have lovely memories of the place and we cannot wait to return. Seattle, Washington, USA.
“Perfect Wedding Venue and Honey Moon Location”
I had my wedding at Delamore Lodge on 10 February 2011, it will be a day that I will never forget; not just because it was my wedding day but because we had chosen the amazing Delamore Lodge; a slice of heaven on earth! My partner and family arrived and were able to enjoy the spa, the pool and then some gorgeous canapés, local wines and delicious beers. On the morning of the wedding we were presented with the most beautiful fruit platter followed by pancakes and bacon. We were ensured that the wedding ceremony and preparations would continue without a hitch and all the service staff were close by to make sure everything was done. We had the Gourmet BBQ for dinner after the ceremony as well as a Strawberry Cheesecake for the wedding cake, made especially for us.
The next morning we had a leisurely breakfast with our family before they left, after which we had the place to ourselves for one night – newly wedded bliss! The next day we had breakfast in bed consisting of Bacon, Eggs and Mushrooms along with a gorgeous fruit salad, which was a perfect ending to a perfect stay. Little touches like the truffles and lavender on the pillows was lovely as was the special wedding bed clothes we were given on the wedding night. It was truly perfect and I would recommend Delamore Lodge to anyone for a small or large wedding. The views and location are absolutely amazing…what more can I say apart from PERFECT!!!
“Such an amazing venue. Great service, excellent food, attention to detail second to none. I would recommend this venue”
We were at Delamore Lodge for a family wedding and believe me, I have been to many weddings but the care and professional attention that all guests, along with the bridal party received was second to none. The layout, generosity and quality of the food and service was unbelievable. In my book would rate ten out of ten.
“Best wedding venue/lodge for a small intimate wedding”
I just wanted to send a message of thanks for hosting such a fabulous wedding day! Our whole family fell in love with Delamore Lodge and the wedding day itself was something that we will all treasure forever! The co-ordination, preparation and attention to detail that went into planning for our big day is commendable. You guys helped to remove a whole layer of stress. The supplier recommendations proved to be really helpful – I couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for everything! Oh – the food? To die for. We’ve never seen or tasted anything as good – absolutely 5 star! We’ve been recommending Delamore highly since. Genuinely can’t wait for our next stay at Delamore! Superb!”
Even if you’re not planning a wedding, you’ll get treated like a VIP. My husband and I stayed on one more night after the wedding and with everyone else gone they continued to spoilt us with good food, wine and service!
“The most amazing experience”
Thank you Delamore Lodge for providing the most amazing venue, backdrop and service to make Michele and Brent; my daughter and son-in law’s wedding day on the 18/9/2010 absolutely a day that will not be forgotten. Everything and I mean everything, from the moment we arrived on Friday afternoon was absolute perfection!
We enjoying a special moment of relaxation, sitting around in the lounge in our dressing gowns after the most superb massage I have ever had while enjoying pre dinner wines and canapé’s, truly a beautiful experience.
The food was something I have never experienced before, the presentation and the service provided to the guests by all staff was a 10 star. All of the guests are still talking about how wonderful the wedding and venue was. Nothing was too much trouble for the entire duration of our stay, all of the staff were only too happy to assist and no detail was missed, even down to having tables and chairs provided for the makeup artist and hairdresser.
We were told on arrival it was our home and believe me what a home it was, welcoming, warm and fun and thank you again Aaron and Roselyn, for the beautiful hospitality; making us all feel welcome and allowing us to grace your beautiful Delamore Lodge in our bathrobes on more than one occasion. The little chats and jokes shared will be remembered. We will definitely be back; it was truly a shame to leave. Lorraine White, North Richmond NSW Australia.
