This was a total find. An authentic experience from the historical landmark hotel itself to the staff and most wonderful location. The food was outstanding, the staff was attentive and personal. The building is aging, but that is part of the charm, but the buidling has a great vibe, is light and airy and filled with interesting things. The location was perfect for walking around Devonport, close to so many wonderful restaurants, boutiques, scenic neighborhoods and right across the street from the 10 min ferry ride to Aukland. Highly recommend staying in Devonport at the Esplanade and enjoying the easy access to all the islands and the city center via the ferry which is fast and sleek. Emma, Tanya, Matilda and the entire staff made our stay great! Thank you -- Robert Hays & Gina Carlson
