The Esplanade has a great location on the Devonport waterfront with sweeping city views. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. With two bedrooms and a big lounge and full kitchen the penthouse suite is excellent for families. The ferries to downtown Auckland leave from across the road so while it is out of the hustle and bustle of the city it is convenient and expiring Devonport is fun.
The worst feature is the breakfasts. Poaching an egg was about the limit of the "chef's" ability. Ask for a discount and forgo the hotel breakfast for one of the pleasant cafes nearby. Another minor irritant was toilet seats that didn't stay up making life difficult for men!
