A superb two days with you. Your staff are your biggest asset, absolutely outstanding in every way. The food was excellent and there is a very good extended wine list at very keen prices. We ate in the restaurant but had a drink in the bar beforehand. The atmosphere is very different in both rooms and it is good to be able to mix and match.

menu on both nights fish dominant. Perhaps another meat or poultry selection would have balanced it more. Good wine list which we very much enjoyed

Thank you so much for making my (significant number) birthday very special. What a lovely surprise to be given the little room with the view over the harbour to ourselves. It felt private and special. Thank you. Delicious food and I was delighted that I could celebrate with a very special bottle of NZ wine from Waiheke. After having recently returned from NZ after 20 years, it felt very apt! We were well looked after by your wonderful staff. All in all, a night to remember. Thank you!

We stayed in the annex which had a good kitchen which we did not use as we enjoyed the food in the restaurant ,it also had a separate lounge with tv which we found very useful. The only negative was the fact that my wife thought the bed was too hard,it was fine for me. A great place to stay..

This was my third formal meal at the Harbour master, but have eaten and had drink here many times. On this occasion the food was good but once we had been served our main meal were we not served well. The bar was exceptionally busy and staff seemed to desert us. We had to ask for dessert menus, extra drinks and even our bill.

Atmosphere was a bit frenetic - this was Saturday evening. But staff were excellent; food was great and I was introduced to a fantastic Argentinian Malbec - I should have bought a case to take home!

Didn’t get the fries we ordered with our main course and no one came back after the mains were served to check if we had everything.
