Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Visitors as usual (but not if you’re unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Situated in a convenient location close to the Northwestern Motorway, Amberwood offers a range of standard and premium care rooms, and is known in the community for providing a high level of personalised care.

Your room is your own private space, so you can decorate it with your favourite pictures and ornaments. Standard rooms are large enough for a single bed, a chair and a wardrobe or chest of drawers. The cost of a standard room is included in the Care Services Fee set by the DHB. Premium rooms have additional features such as more space, an ensuite bathroom or outdoor access, but you’ll need to pay an extra amount per day to cover the cost of these premium features.

Amberwood backs onto the Royal Reserve, one of Auckland‘s gems and a great spot if you fancy a short walk. Plus, its state-of-the-art playground is sure to be a hit with the great grandkids when they come to visit.

It’s easy for visitors to stop by with the Northwestern Motorway just around the corner, and with Westgate and NorthWest Shopping Centres on our doorstep, there are plenty of places to catch up for a coffee and a bite to eat.
