Lovely old elegance
We really enjoyed our stay in the Victoria Suite. It felt great to finish a week in a campervan and check in to the Esplanade, with its high ceilings, warm fireplace, and harbor views. The restaurant was delicious, and the staff very friendly and kind. We loved walking around Devonport and catching the ferry right across the street. I would definitely stay here again.

Great character hotel with fantastic views
Character, position, food
We stayed in the suite which has its own balcony overlooking the city. The only drawback it has is the lack of air conditioning which is not often needed in Auckland

Two days in Devonport New Zealand
Location. Good breakfasts, food generally very good.
Very unhappy that our fine dining was ruined by it being in a public bar right next to the bar and in line with the toilets. We had booked in May 2015 and asked for a table in the Private dining room. It was promised us at the time. Quality in Service is more than just food. We had special guests with us from the UK who were equally unimpressed. The bedrooms/suites were fine for both couples. Complaints were made at the time of check in and check out without any real concern as to our unhappiness. Two of us live in NZ in Auckland, we will be talking to others..

Stay at the Esplanade Hotel.
The great hospitality, location and value for money
We really enjoyed our stay at the Esplanade. It is fantastically located on the waterfront and the service from the staff was really wonderful. It was also good that hotel residents were allocated a seperate are of the dining hall which made it very nice. The food was of a very high quality.
