What A weekend ... Thhis wasn't our first time at The Ambers. More like 3rd or 4th. And its simple. Great host, great food and wonderful accomodation.
I strongly recommend to any discerning traveller.

Description - Bed and breakfast

The Ambers Bed & Breakfast is located in a peaceful valley just 1 km from the Silverdale exit of the northern motorway and only 35 minutes from Auckland.
A luxury three story Georgian-style manor house, set on 14 acres of beautiful park-like grounds at the end of a long tree lined drive with an olive grove and orchard on one side and a stand of oak trees on the other.

Share our peaceful country atmosphere and warm hospitality. We offer elegant country accommodation inclusive of full cooked breakfast. We have four charming rooms, with en-suites, for overnight and longer stays.
Enjoy our very elegant 1st floor European style rooms with wonderfully comfortable beds and finest bed linen, our romantic French Toile Attic Suite with sloping ceilings or our Greek Santorini Room. The two attic suites with shared bathroom and antique claw footed bath make an ideal family area.

A delicious country style breakfast is served in our formal dining room with fine linen and silver tableware or on the terrace overlooking the garden and native bush.

In the evening relax with pre-dinner drinks in our elegant lounge or with a coffee and vintage port after enjoying dinner out at one of our local seaside restaurants.

We will cook a New Zealand-style barbeque for groups of 6-8 guests on our terrace in summer by prior arrangement. In winter bring some friends for a weekend retreat and enjoy a French-style dinner in our intimate dining room. Relax before and after by a roaring fire in our guest lounge with BYO wine.

There are beautiful beaches, scenic walks, golf courses and horse riding nearby as well as other activities such as a new snow dome & go cart racing or enjoy our local village of Silverdale with its historic village and Saturday markets.

Spend a night or two unwinding when you first arrive before heading to sunny Northland one of New Zealand's major tourist destinations. Or on your return trip south to other destinations such as the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula and Rotorua with its bubbling mud pools, geysers and focus on Maori culture.

Room amenities

The Regency Room : This very elegant English style room is situated on the 1st floor with lovely views of our fountain and driveway, particularly beautiful in autumn when our Liquid Ambers turn brilliant colours of red and gold. It has a queen sized bed with finest bed linen. We have had many guests comment on the comfort of this bed. The ensuite has a large shower. Views out over the front lawns are particularly beautiful in Autumn when the Liquid Ambers put on their show.

The Blue Room: The exquisite Blue Room has a king sized bed and has beautiful views out over the back garden down to native bush. In the blue room you wake up to the sound of birdsong and watch the sunset in the evening. The Blue Room en-suite is large and has both a shower and bath.

Toile de Jouey Suite: The delightful French Toile attic room is very romantic and private. It has lovely views from the casement window out over our front paddocks and tree-lined driveway. It is our largest suite which includes a couch, desk and coffee and tea making facilities. This is a very relaxing suite to stay in for a honeymoon night or a special weekend away.

The Santorini Room: The Greek Santorini Room is in the Eastern end of the attic. It consists of a bedroom with super king bed (which can also be split into two singles) plus a small ante-room with divan bed and writing table. Along with the Toile de Jouey Suite, also in the attic, the Santorini Room makes a very comfortable family unit with shared bathroom. Children love the attic with its sloping ceilings & casement windows.

The Barn Studio (or "Gite") is a self contained unit across the courtyard from the main house. It has its own ensuite, tv, and a kitchenette with sink, toaster, fridge, microwave and stovetop. It is an ideal place to relax. Because it is self-contained with its own entrance, it is very private and suits a long stay where you can do as you wish. A full cooked English or European breakfast can be provided at an extra charge of $20 pp.
