The Ambers Country House Bed & 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. Come and enjoy the Old World charm and luxury of The Ambers Bed & Breakfast accommodation, set on 14 park-like acres near Silverdale, Auckland. 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. Although we no longer make our grounds and facilities available for weddings, we do provide accommodation for people who attend weddings elsewhere.

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.

Dinner prices will vary dependent on produce and number of courses desired.

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.

Alternatively have a relaxing rest day at The Ambers before leaving New Zealand instead of staying in the city or at the airport.

We are also a great stay for Aucklanders looking for a relaxing romantic weekend away in the country while still being close to the city.

We are on the main route north only 35 minutes from Auckland and just 1km from the Silverdale exit of the motorway.
