We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are beautiful. Very high standards throughout. They are nice enough to live in, let alone stay there on holiday. Very well equipped with things you need. The managers were helpful and attentive if we needed assistance. When we were there the weather was awful so I don't think we saw it in its... More

We stayed at the apartments for 3 nights from March 28 and were completely blown away by how fantastic they are. We had a warm, friendly welcome from Yvonne and were given the key to villa 21. This was a ground floor unit with views on to the marina and a wonderful garden space. The apartment itself was so spacious,... More

These are near new apartments overlooking the Whitianga Waterways. They are well presented and in a quiet location. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a huge lounge and outside deck. We used the barbeque on the deck.They are about 1km from the town centre and the beach

We had a lovely stay here, we enjoyed the space and most of all the view onto the waterway. It was in a handy location, close to the town centre, but still felt like we were away from it all. The rooms were large and the walk in wardrobe was very handy!

For a serviced apartment styled accommodation, Sovereign Piers is most definitely up there. Even the ground floor was good! Clean, tidy grounds, friendly onsite manager with a great deal of local knowledge.

We stayed here for 2 nights in December and thought it was perfect. The apartment itself was spottlessly clean, tastefully furnished and so peaceful. It was also very spacious and had its own garage.
