Unfortunately I can't remember her name which is a shame because she was quite the loveliest appartment receptionist I have ever met. She was incredibly helpful going out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The appartments themselves are beautifully situated with stunning views of the sea and within walking distance of bars,...

The location is great, however... the entire time we were there the wifi didn't work. The owner or main guy in the office was a bit grouchy and combative about his broken washing machine.

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 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.
