We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and had a wonderful time in Whitianga.

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.
