I got married in Whitianga and stayed at Crowe's nest for 2 nights. The staff knew I was getting married and therefore let me check out later which was very good since I was getting married at 12:30! They didn't have a problem with my grooms men coming over in the morning either for the photo shoot. On top of... More

Nothing wrong with the apartment but everything seems geared to making the management's life as easy as possible, check in only between 2-6, spa can only be used between 11-6, so you come back from the beach to relax in a fantastic rooftop area & the spa has more chains on it than a slave ship. A few highlights from... More

We spent three nights in a two bed-roomed, one bathroom apartment at Crows Nest. The layout of the complex is not ideal; we have a one year old, and had to negotiate two separate sets of stairs that the lift didn't reach - rather tricky when our son went to sleep in the buggy. However, that was minor compared to... More

Stayed here for two nights over Auckland Anniversary weekend with my partner and our disabled friend. When I first enquired about a property suitable for our friend months ago I instantly knew this was going to be perfect. Bob dealt with my enquiry and was very informative. Upon arrival I was delighted with the standard of the apartment, safe secure... More

We stayed here just after new years, though the apartment themselves were reasonable the service was very bad. We were clear in telling the staff upon booking that we were staying with four children and four adults, and specified the ages of the children. The management came to us after a two days there and said that the children were... More

The quality and cleanliness of the apartment were of a high standard. The service of much less, though. The internet access was very limited and expired on our second day of stay - for the price they charge for the apartment the internet should be unlimited; it costs a little these days. The managers were not very accommodating when the... More

Apartment interiors are superb, it exceeded our expectations in every way. We stayed on level 2 with sea view. Do note - this property is not on the first row of houses that face sea, We could see the water but the view was blocked by another house/ apartment. We were locked out of our apartment as the key provided... More

We must have had the same experience as Jane C. Same thing, the apartment was beautiful, well laid out, lovely position but the hospitality left a lot to be desired. I was told 6mnths earlier that if I got into town(from Australia) early to call, and we may be able to get into our room early... Ok, so 2 hours... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you found the apartment was beautiful and well laid out. As much as we can, we try to accommodate guest requests but sometimes this is not possible. Apartments are cleaned and prepared between check-out at 10am and check-in at 2pm. We could not check you in when you arrived about 10am.... More

These apartments are in a good position and are pleasantly decorated but the management are the most unhelpful rude people you will encounter. We purchased 3GB wifi as we own businesses that we needed to keep running whilst away. Having used this up I went to the office (which is hardly ever open) to purchase some more. I telephoned the...
