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...

I have stayed here multiple times with friends and loved it every time! The location is very central, the apartments are incredibly spacious and clean, and the managers Jenny and Kelvin are very friendly and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. I personally recommend Room 111, it is a large corner apartment with an amazing view,... More

Waking up in Auckland on a beautiful Sunday morning we decided to take an impromptu overnight road trip to the Coromandel with our family. We drove into Whitianga at around 5:30pm with no accommodation bookings, and crossed our fingers. The Esplanade Apartments by far exceeded any expectations. The staff were gracious and friendly, and even though they were clearly leaving... More

Somewhat dubiously we arrived in Whitianga and were relieved to discover The Esplanade Apartments were open again after being closed for many months as a result of building issues - needing to be externally re-clad. Whilst we had booked over the internet in February, we were assured it would be open, however on checking the website a couple of days... More

I planned a proposal at Whitianga and decided to stay at the Esplanade Apartments. Needless to say, this was the second best decision I've made after deciding to get married :D We stayed at a 2 bedroom Apartment as we traveled with another family.
