“Best Accomodation for Auckland Marathon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Stayed here for 4 nights over the Auckland Marathon weekend in November 2013.

The apartments are so large- high ceilings, floor to ceiling glass looking over the harbour. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable.

Because of the full and well appointed kitchen it works out better to stay here and eat in than be in a local hotel and eat out. A convenience store is within 5 minutes walk and a full super market within 10 minutes.

We arrived late at night but the hosts (Scott in our case) were so generous and informative about the locality.

We will be back next year for the marathon - but if you need a few days close to the CBD and the wonderful restaurants in the Viaduct Basin then this is the place.

Where do I start? Firstly, it was great to meet Graeme on arrival and made the 'Meet and Greet' aspect more warm and personable. We absolutely loved the 3 nights that we spent 'living the life' in our spacious and impeccably modern/luxurious apartment which still exuded the 'home away from home' feeling as well. Location was unbelievable. Restaurants, Bars and the Viaduct itself were but a stone throw away and the only time we needed to leave the Viaduct block was when we attended the Beyonce Contact at the Vector Arena. Which was only a leisurely 10-15min walk away. So thank-you Auckland Waterfront Serviced Apartments. You should be proud of the Staff and Apartments which you make available to the public and we will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the North side are quiet and after 09:00am, you get all day sun until 08:00pm in the room a...

We spent four nights at the apartments and everything was absolutely wonderful. We had wanted a central location to see the tall ships whilst they were in Auckland. Our check in time was 2.30. We rang to ask if we could check in early as the tall ships were due to arrive around 2 pm and we wanted to be ready. No problem. We had a speedy check in to ensure we could be down on the Quay to watch the ships. Graeme met up promptly and explained where to park and showed us to our apartment. We were on the first floor and two of the ships were berthed right below us. Fantastic. The apt. was spotless - one bedroom, but tea and coffee was supplied plus laundry powder. Everything was spotless and it was certainly ideal for our specific requirements and I am sure would have suited anyone. We could not fault the service or accommodation.

Room Tip: We liked the first floor apartment as we could see everything happening below. It's right on th...

We loved our four nights at the Auckland Waterfront Serviced Apartments. Gracious, warm welcome, impeccably clean, super comfortable apartment, quality linen and fittings. Location so close to everything but secluded and restful for us both as we gazed out on the harbour waters.
We travel often to Auckland and hope to find an apartment for our next visit.

These apartments lived up to there rating. They are very well kitted out, ours was a huge two bedroom superior. Comfort plus all round, great views, didn't need to ask for anything else as every little detail covered. And in THE best location in my opinion, close enough to the action, far enough away for peace!

I visited Auckland for business reasons and was fortunate to be staying at the serviced apartments. I had a warm welcome from management, and was floored to find endless amounts of tea, coffee, washing powder and top quality cleaning supplies in my apartments. This is not something that is usually supplied in such quality and quantity, and it was very much appreciated. The apartments are waterfront, next to the ferries and a skip away from the best eateries in town.

We stayed for 3 nights, 2 adults and 2 teens in a 2 bedroom apartment. These apartments are in a very good location to downtown Auckland. However, the problem with the hot water cylinder being very small was a disappointment. There was not enough hot water for 2 adults, and 2 children to have a shower in the morning. The apartment is comfortable, had sky and internet which was very useful. The milk, tea, coffee and bubbles were a nice touch.

The service from the apartment management was excellent. It had excellent views.
Good having parking available, however this car park is certainly challenging to find your way out.

Room Tip: Be prepared that it may be a bit noisy on a weekend night.
