Staff were helpful, apartment was clean and well equipped. Used 'Blonde' restaurant once. The food portions were huge. Also used 'Salt' a few minutes walk... More

Came upon this block of apartments on the harbour's edge at the last minute and loved it: huge apartment overlooking the harbour; immaculately presented, furnished and clean; very modern; right on the edge of the town near bars and restaurants; sound safe parking; a great location for exploring the surrounding beaches. And great value for money.

The online pictures look amazing, big bright with plenty of space. Our apartment was certainly none of these. We were on the south side of the building with no sun so the apartment felt very small and dark. Also the neighbours bedroom looked directly onto our balcony and straight into our bedroom so didn't feel private at all. I think... More

Location, Location, Location. This was our third visit to the Esplanade apartments and look you coudn't find a better place to stay anywhere in NZ. Great location, great apartments, very friendly hosts. Park the car and walk to everything the town has to offer. The Blonde restaurant in the same building is just great, great food and excellent service. The... More

Stayed here with my wife and 7 month old child for two nights. Apartments are in a great location, close to buffalo beach, ferry, restaurants and main street shops. We had the smallest configuration two bedroom apartment but still a very decent size with lounge room separating both rooms. Bathroom was big, kitchen had all facilities including oven and cooktop.... More

We were staying in the penthouse apartment over early January 2013. Our initial thoughts of the place were quite good. Nice large apartment, clean and tidy beautiful views. However as our stay progressed we were harrassed by the hosts when returning to our room late at night, they must have had some nightmare guests, but forgot that we were not... More

We stayed here in December for 3 nights after coming to Whitianga for a friends wedding. The apartments are modern, clean, well equipped and perfect for a short stay. The apartment was bright and spacious with great facilities- the bathroom was lovely- in particular the walk in shower. The only downside is that the bathroom compared to the rest of... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in a modern, spacious, well-equipped 2 bedroom apartment. The location is great - near the beach, restaurants and shops and just across the road from the ferry. There is plenty of undercover parking. The only real downside is that there is no airconditioning - our first night was a little hot (mid-December). I imagine,... More
