Yes, it's a nice location etc. etc. but our stay was spoiled by the management the next morning. On the way out I made a couple of helpful suggestions (pleasantly), boy was that a mistake. Got told several times that these are apartments, not hotels. Ok, well for $500 a night for a three bedroom "apartment" I would expect a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a fantastic stay. The managers are lovely people and go out of there way to help you with anything. We were in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment with estuary views and they were fantastic views. Modern units and clean and tidy. We loved it here and when we come over to... More

We are from Orewa, NZ. Spent 3 nights with son and new daughter in law while they were in NZ, on holiday from London. Great apartment, central location, all mod cons. Building site managers very professional and particularly enjoyed the swimming pool. Highly recommended.

the apartment was immaculate however at $300 plus dollars for the night I expect air conditioning and fly wire. We were eaten to death by Mosquitos and keep up all night by a show on at the local pub. To make matters worst, you are expected to pay for the Internet.

I would give it 5 stars if it had air-con but it was way too hot so I couldn't sleep,even with the windows open because it was noisy outside. Also the bed I was expecting to be queen was actually a double. Overall it's in an excellent location and the views were great. I loved the swimming pool. The gym... More

This was our second time staying in the 3 bedroom penthouse apartment. Perfect location and view, the apartment had everything we could need. (The only criticism would be they could have better quality toilet paper).

I do hate writing negative reviews as this property is rather nice in Whitianga. However it's close proximity to town was a major downfall if staying during peak season as you just cannot sleep due to noise of band music and drunk people outside shouting until 2pm. Every Night!! Due to weather being so humid in summer I found it... More

Huge, clean, well appointed and just what we needed. My parents and I had spent 6 days travelling around NZ north island, eating out every night and this was the perfect spot for a night in. The facilities were just as good as you'd have at home and the 2 locally situated supermarkets were super convenient for supplies. Area closes... More

Stayed in a three bed apartment at this hotel with friends. Great facilities and good layout. Would suit families as well as couples. Stunning views from balcony and convenient location to shops and restaurants.

After a long drive from Pahia, we were thrilled with this accommodation - very spacious apartment in a perfect location looking out to the Boat harbour. A short walk to everything, shops, restaurants, ferries. Very quiet when we were there, and we enjoyed our best meal in NZ downstairs at No.8 Restaurant. Wish we had stayed more than one night...
