The Esplanade Hotel Reviews


The Esplanade Hotel offers luxury boutique hotel accommodation, on the waterfront of Devonport, a charming seaside suburb, just across the harbour from the heart of Auckland city. Dominating the Devonport foreshore, the Esplanade Hotel enjoys unrivalled harbour and city views. This gracious Auckland boutique hotel built in 1903, has been elegantly restored and has a character and charm all of its own.

Only a ten-minute ferry ride to downtown Auckland, the Esplanade Hotel offers the convenience of boutique hotel accommodation in Auckland without the hassle of the inner city. After a busy day sight-seeing or on business in Auckland, the Esplanade boutique hotel accommodation is a haven to escape to at the end of the day…sit back and relax in the bar or restaurants and watch the Auckland city lights and harbour activity.

Each modern and stylish room offers a view of Auckland Harbour or Windsor reserve, adjacent to the hotel. The comfortable and spacious rooms, with either a king sized bed or twin beds have a private en-suite, satellite Sky TV and tea and coffee making facilities.
Within the hotel are a restaurant, café, and a cosy house bar, all with fantastic views. Sit by the roaring fires in winter, or by the open bi-fold windows in summer soaking up the harbour atmosphere.

The Esplanade Hotel truly is a haven to escape to after a busy day sightseeing, for a weekend getaway or whilst on business in Auckland. Absorb yourself in the ambience created by the elegant décor and grandness of one of New Zealand’s few heritage hotels, and enjoy the warm, friendly service.

Location and Contact


• BY CAR: Travelling north from Auckland city centre, cross the harbour bridge and take the Esmonde Rd/Devonport exit. At the end of Esmonde Rd, turn right into Lake Rd. Follow the signs down Lake Rd to Devonport, and at the very end turn right at the roundabout into Victoria Rd. The Esplanade Hotel is at the foot of Victoria Rd, opposite the ferry terminal.
• PRE-ARRANGED PERSONAL PICKUP: Avoid waiting at the airport with a pre-arranged personal pickup, where you will be driven to the door in the comfort of a luxury car. Our driver will meet you in the arrivals hall with your name on a board. The price for this service is NZ$90 including GST, and must be booked with the hotel in advance.
• BY AIRPORT SHUTTLE: Airport shuttles are taxi-vans with luggage trailers, and are located outside the airport terminal. An airport shuttle will bring you to our door for about NZ$40 for one person, and NZ$5 for the second person.
• BY TAXI: A taxi from the airport takes about 40 minutes and will cost approximately NZ$70.
• BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT: The Airbus leaves the international and domestic airport terminals every 20 minutes from 6am, and the journey into Auckland city takes 60 minutes. Take the Airbus from the airport to the Sightseeing Centre in the city (opposite the ferry terminal). Cross the road to the ferry building, and take the Devonport ferry which leaves half-hourly. It takes just 10 minutes to cross the harbour to Devonport, and The Esplanade Hotel is directly across the road from the ferry terminal.
