These are so convenient, close to everything, even watching the cruise ship passengers arriving in the rain. Well finished, nice touch was the underfloor heating, really good first thing in the morning. Would certainly recommend it

We have stayed at the Bruce before but it is now living on past glories. Rooms are tired and need a spruce up. No heat pump is a serious Downside. Needs a paint, new windows, bathroom and kitchen. Also smelt musty when we arrived and balcony furniture and balustrades covered with bird droppings. Great location but don't rest. There are...

I booked a 2 bedroom ground floor apartment for 1 night recently. Many other accommodation places had a minimum stay of 2 nights. We had originally booked for 4 guests, but ended up with only 3 of us staying. The managers reduced the price when I was checking in. I did not expect this and was quite impressed. The apartment...

Stayed 3 nights at a very well equipped two bedroom apartment. Living area, kitchen, patio. Excellent bed and bed linnens. Very clean. Tasteful decor. Acceptable value for the price paid. Extensive parking.

View was not as expansive as shown on website. We think this picture was taken from the bedroom rather than the living area. Unfriendly service when we booked in. Same person unwilling to change towels - reminded us that we needed to think about the environment. Toaster started up smoke alarms until we realised we needed to open the door...

Three nights in our beautifully appointment was a wonderful way to start our NZ holiday. The Bruce Apartments are clean, fully self-contained, split level, beautifully decorated and in an excellent position. Not only did we have a beautiful view of the waterfront, but we were only a few minutes walk from the cafes, restaurants and shops. We definitely plan to...

What a great place to stay. On arrival the check in staff are super friendly, show to your room, & even helped my 94 year old grandmother carry her luggage. Their is a pool, but only can only use until 6.00pm which after a day of sight seeing is a bit early. We had apartment 23 which is on the...

The apartment was excellently located with great views and easy access to restaurants. Very clean, tidy and comfortable. Would recommend and would stay again. Beds were comfortable and furniture generally to a high standard.

We only stayed two nights but I want to retire here. Bruce apartments are perfectly positioned near the main wharf and easy walking distance to lovely local restaurants and shops. Our apartment had two spacious bedrooms upstairs and downstairs was kitchen, dining, lounge, a hidden laundry and a very quaint balcony looking toward the historic lighthouse. It was a lovely...

Having stayed here 4 years ago, was keen to come back again. The staff were very welcoming and our apartment was great and even had a washing machine and dryer which we made good use of. The kitchen was adequate but would have been good to have a bigger fridge, it was just a bar fridge. The outlook was lovely...

“There are some apartments not actually facing the waterfront. Ours did face the waterfront. Worth checking.”
