Sovereign Pier on the Waterways
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 7, 2013

If your reading this review…don't wage any more time on your decision on where to stay because this is the place!
Its a home away from home with a little bit more! The apartment itself is set on the waters edge and if you are fortunate with the weather… your outside dining is furniture makes a great spot to see in the later hours. If your keen on a bbq… its here also!
If its too hot, theres the swimming pool, which is of high standard and for the fitness fanatics there is a gym and tennis court!
Don't worry if the weather turns for the worst as inside there is plenty of space to relax and socialise within a beautiful decor!
Bed was comfortable and we had our 11 week old daughter with us and our portacot and with all the space, it catered for her easily!
We where looking for a weekend away in Feb with some other friends and we where planning on Taupo… Not any more!!

Room Tip: If your keen on the pool, ask for a room close to it! No. 11 or 12 would be perfect.

We visited for a quick weekend getaway to go to the lost spring. Decided to book some nice accommodation and did not regret it. The villa was peaceful and quiet. Inside it was also great, with great kitchen although we didn't actually use it.

Our only pet-peeve was that there wasn't any fresh milk provided, but it wasn't a big issue. Overall, we loved the villa and the view. Very nice, peaceful and relaxing.

Room Tip: If you're thinking of staying just overnight, don't. Book two, as that was our biggest mista...

We stayed here for two nights and were so happy. Caretakers Yvonne and Paul were very helpful in finding us the right apartment. We were so happy to have such a comfortable place to relax in when it poured raining! The apartment had everything we needed and the view from our balcony was lovely. We watched the fish jumping just outside in the waterway. The fact that it was a distance from town did not worry us at all. It was very quiet. We wish we could have stayed longer as it was just great.

I came here over the Queen's weekend with my boyfriend for a romantic getaway. Easy to find, we got there about 3pm and were able to check in really quickly. I swear we got the best villa of them all and was so grateful for the security and private garage - just that piece of mind really. The room was spectacular and the entire place was so clean and well maintained, and the staff (or owners?) were so friendly and welcoming and just made everything so easy for us. We are definitely coming back again as soon as we can, hopefully we'll get the same apartment and have a longer stay!

My husband and I just spent a lovely 3 nights here for our wedding anniversary. The apartment was huge, tastefully decorated and had everything we needed for our stay. The view over the waterways was beautiful and we relaxed in the spa pool and watched the fish jumping all around. Wish we could have stayed longer!!
