Very warm and kind staff, very central to the best shops on Waiheke. We ate there and our meals were amazing, breakfast was timely and we were blessed with the most amazing morning sea view.

I stayed here with my Mum in March just before the Covid-19 lockdown. The location was amazing, the accommodation and breakfast were brilliant. But above all the staff were so wonderful - in particular Helen had so much time for us and even called her personal taxi driver for us to get us down to the ferry on time (after we spent too long shopping and nearly missed the ferry!) Also the girl on reception who also served us at breakfast was charming. I can't rate The Oyster Inn highly enough and hope everyone can support them once restrictions are lifted.

Absolutely amazing stay in this wonderful facility, highly recommend however we weren’t picked up at the ferry as organised on arrival, I messaged the accommodation more than 24 hours before arrival like requested and to try and phone them as well as messaging proved frustrating. This ended in an expensive taxi ride to the accommodation which we hadn’t planned on and wasn’t a good start to anniversary celebrations. Sugar, coffee sachets were not refilled until we asked and our dishes were not cleaned one day and simply taken away the next and not replaced... Staff were exceptional to deal with and everything else made for a lovely stay.

Fantastic location made even easier with ferry terminal transfers to and from, extremely comfortable bed, wonderful Aesop products, the iron made my husband happy to prep his suit for the wedding we were attending. Fabulous breakfast the next morning. Thank you Rebecca and her team for making up feel so welcome.

Perfect Escape

Pros: A better question would be what is there not to like! Met with smiles which continued throughout. Made to feel truly welcome. Room was spotless
Cons: Nothing
Location: Perfect. Bang in the heart of Oneroa and pick-up and drop-off from ferry a major plus. Beach across the road and vineyards and restaurants all around
Booked night away for 25th Wedding Anniversary (main holiday next week to celebrate) and couldn't have been happier. Made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Room perfect as was food and drink. Will definitely be back again
