    Upgrade to Te Waonui

    We were transferred/upgraded to a room in the Scenic Hotel’s sister hotel Te Waonui Forest Retreat due to the Scenic being quiet and all food services operating from Te Wainui. We had a lovely king room, with small deck area backing on to some native bush. Room was pleasant, clean and tidy, although the bed wasn’t made properly (bottom sheet didn’t cover the whole mattress). Staff were friendly. We had dinner on site, which was good and breakfast, which was the usual hotel buffet offering.

    Due to this hotel being shut from I can only guess the Covid issues ie lack of guests, we got upgraded to the sister hotel Te Waonui Resort. Lovely room. Spacious with a lovely balcony overlooking the bush. Bed was a bit too soft for us but thats personal preference only. Gorgeous bathroom products. Would love to buy some.

    We booked the Scenic Hotel and then received an email saying that we had been upgraded to stay at Te Waonui Forest Retreat next door. What treat it was amazing and we didn’t have to pay any difference.
