We were told we had access to the washer, however it left some clothes absolutely drenched and others bone dry. The spin cycle was clearly not...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and had a wonderful time in Whitianga. Neal Summers was so very helpful with information / recommendations on what to do and places to see as we were new to this part of NZ. We can't thank Neal enough for making our stay such a special one. We highly recommend the Waterfront...

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment on the top floor with fantastic views of the beach. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. Neil, the owner, was friendly and helpful, giving us tips on activities to try and places to visit. The apartments are close to the Main Street where there are lots of restaurants to eat out,...

We stayed two nights at the Waterfront Apartments and was very pleased with the service, location and friendly folks at the desk. Great value for money, comfortable bed, clean, good shower and bathroom. Can't say more really - it's right on the beach! So who could complain? Would definitely stay again any day.

He called to inform that we can check in earlier the the room was not occupied the night before. Good location whereby lots of eateries around the area. The price could be better if you walked in...
