The room was clean and spacious, and only a short drive to the shops. There was a great view out to the waterways that made for a nice afternoon of relaxation. We were travelling with an infant and found the room to be setup well enough that we did not need to worry about him breaking anything.

Lovely clean trendy apartments - we were on top floor overlooking the waterways and you literally see fish jumping out of the water. Good 20min walk to town on the flat. Great heated spa and swimming pool. Friendly staff. Would definitely stay again

Great! Sounds like you made good use of the 20 person spa pool on the waterfront, enjoying the unique feature of relaxing in the pool while watching the fish jump. This really is a unique experience to Sovereign Pier on the Waterways. We are only 1.5km from the center of the main shopping street, so an easy walk (10-20 minutes)...

Was quite pleased with my stay at this hotel. Very spacious rooms, very well furnished, modern, clean and everything feels of a good quality. Given the standard of some accommodation in Whitianga, this hotel feels 5 star. All seems either brand new, or really well maintained. Could easily compare this hotel to any decent international chain. Town is around 15...

Thank you very much for pointing out our point of difference, "the spaciousness, modern, quality accommodation", we really appreciate the kind comments. Its great that you enjoyed the short stroll into our beautiful village. We only have one sign in the Villa suites so am a bit confused about that comment. Most of our guests are respectful, but unfortunately it...

We had a little trouble finding the place but once we did, wow, we were greeted by an extremely friendly and helpful lady at reception. Checking in was simple and she had put the heating on in the room in preparation for our stay. At first we were given a key to the wrong room (as it was a 2...

The reason for our visit was the Whitianga Scallop Festival and we wanted something within walking distance but with amenities and a quiet location. We were met with a friendly greeting and provided with useful information about the area and festival itself. There were leisure facilities available for use but that was not the reason for our visit so we...

Many thanks for taking time to share your experience at Sovereign Pier and for taking part in the spectacular Scallop Festival that the town brings to the Coromandel each year.

Fantastic view. Spacious unit. Had a great time. The apartment was very clean. Beds comfy. View just amazing. Plenty of parking for boat and ute, with garage to lock away fishing gear. Only let down was lack of basics (but with the supermarket within walking distance that was easily remedied).

Thank you so much for such an awesome review. So glad you decided to use our wonderful 20 person spa pool in the rain, as even though it rained for almost 5 days, with only the occasional break, it was still a rather a warm temperature, ideal for relaxing in the spa.

Whitianga was our last destination on our Coromandel trip and we decided to splash out. The apartment we stayed in was incredible - I just love waking up and seeing boats out the window. Real "lifestyles of the rich and famous" stuff... thanks so much and we will be back.

It is great to hear you enjoyed the peaceful and relaxing view over our own private marina in the Whitianga waterways.

Our apartment was just perfect. Clean, spacious and beautifully furnished, kitchen very well equipped, lovely linen on the bed. Yvonne had gone above and beyond and lit the lovely gas fire before we arrived and the ambience walking in was great. Lovely outlook over the waterway marina. We will definitely choose Sovereign Pier again.
