    Devonport

    The Esplanade Hotel is located on the waterfront and in an area with good shopping. The Civic and Aotea Centre are cultural highlights, and some of the area's activities can be experienced at Auckland Ferry Terminal and Princes Wharf. Check out an event or a game at Spark Arena, and consider making time for Auckland Zoo, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the hotel's central location.

    I like the Victorian style- just needs a bit of a tidy up eg. Fold up beds and ladders sitting in hallway and decor could be updated whilst still keeping with the stylr

    SHABBY HOTEL

    Worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Filthy ! Ant infested, water damage, many things broken and not working ( lights, fan, torn upholstery, broken shower, etc ). Wanted another room or check out with refund. Manager would not oblige of even return my emails or meet with me. Also, very expensive and we expected a nice, clean hotel but it was listed as 4 star with a price to match. It was a 1 star or lower. Only disappointment in 4 weeks in New Zealand. However, great location and a shame this hotel doesn't do the location and the wonderful country justice. POOR OWNERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT !!

    Our worst hotel experience in NZ by some distance. No excuse for mould in bathroom, lack of cleanliness or rudeness of staff. Only redeeming feature is convenient location for ferry port.
