Stayed here for 2 nights with my family in a 2 bed apartment with sea views. The apartment block looks fairly new and the apartment itself was spotless - perfectly clean and with all the amenities you need. The location is absolutely superb, just a short walk from all the local shops and the marina. We couldn't have picked a...

Could not be happier with our accomodation, we stayed in a ground floor 2 bed apartment, really impressed with the size and facilities. Fully equipped for wheelchair access which was also very impressive, as a lot of places do not cater for that at all. We went out out front gate and trotted across the road for a lovely dinner...

Great base for cathederal cove, hahei, hot water beach and hobbiton. We felt like we could escape back to our unit and be away from the crowds. Easy walking distance to everything in Whitianga. Modern decor in our 2 bedroom self contained unit.

My stay here was lovely, as I walked in it was very clean, spacious and functional. There were very few mirrors which was a little bit annoying when leaving the room, but other than that I would say that that is the only downside.

We were two motorcyclists requiring rooms or one in Whitianga. Being school holidays, the town was fairly full and our options limited. Crows Nest was one of the few that could accomodate, and in this case a two bedroom apartment. The rate indicated a top end apartment, and paying the money was not a problem. My follow traveller averages 75...

We have just finished a seven day stay here at The Crows Nest Apartments in Whitianga, NZ. We have loved staying here at the apartments. The apartment is spacious and beautifully furnished. It was spotless for our arrival. We have stayed at many self contained apartments and although they always look clean, they sometimes feel 'dirty'. This apartment is clean...

Had a fantastic stay with friends and some littleys. Great location, apartment was really clean, modern decor and appliances and close to everything we needed. Really friendly staff who were awesome and helpful. Would recommend to anyone visiting the Coromandel and using it as a base.
