Good location and nice views on to the Wharf. Close to the ferry or for doing the boat trips. The apartment was clean and spacious. The front bedroom my Mum stayed in was a bit noisy, but I found it quiet in the back room. Nice to have a fan in the hot weather. Good sized kitchen, although we were...

Close to all bars and restaurants. 2 minute walk to the ferry. Children's park across the road. We hadn't booked but that was not a problem, we had a choice of 2...

Stayed in the 3 bedroom 2 bathroom Penthouse which had plenty of space for our family of 5. The deck was huge and included an outdoor table for 10, which was plenty for us while alfresco dining and enjoying the beautiful views of mercury bay and the estuary. The pool was a good size and depth which kept our 8...

Felt completely at home while staying at the Esplanade. Found the managers extremely helpful and down to earth Kiwi's. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with fabulous views over the harbour, ferry landing and playground across the road. The room was extremely big, and was ideally suited to our needs of family which included teenagers. We had an additional...

Was greeted at the reception by the managers quickly and told that I had free upgrade which was a nice start. The apartments were clean, modern and large rooms.

100 metres form the main beach, the Cooks beach passenger ferry, the marina and only 200 metres from the town centre shops we really enjoyed a weekend break at the Esplanade. With 5 adults, we grabbed a 3 bedroom unit overlooking the estuary and marina. Well appointed with 2 bathrooms I'd say our only little gripe would be that the...

“First floor front apartments are the best”

“Ask the managers if they are aware of any smokers in any of the apartments...and if so ask for "the other side".”

“Our view of the pool was very pretty, but I think a harbour view would be even more attractive, and possibly somewhat quieter.”
