Esplanade Hotel in Auckland, New Zealand

Builders broke ground on the Esplanade Hotel at the turn of the 20th century with plans modeled after the great seaside resort hotels in Brighton and Blackpool, England. These days, Devonport is an idyllic beach locale in its own right: Nearby Cheltenham Beach is considered one of Auckland’s best, and the shopping strip along Victoria Road hosts an eclectic mix of restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. Esplanade Hotel’s 17 rooms and suites are characterized by their Edwardian architecture – think high ceilings and sash windows – and its newly revamped dining venue attracts a steady stream of locals.

Start the day with a seaside brunch – homemade granola with vanilla heilala yogurt, the richest grade made in the Asia-Pacific region. Pick up a picnic on the way out. After a round of tennis and a walk along the beach, feast on potato-parmesan beignets and goat cheese salad under the shade of a Pohutakawa tree in Windsor Reserve, watching boats arrive in the harbor. Take the ferry into downtown Auckland for a night on the town.

This was a total find. An authentic experience from the historical landmark hotel itself to the staff and most wonderful location. The food was outstanding, the staff was attentive and personal. The building is aging, but that is part of the charm, but the buidling has a great vibe, is light and airy and filled with interesting things. The location was perfect for walking around Devonport, close to so many wonderful restaurants, boutiques, scenic neighborhoods and right across the street from the 10 min ferry ride to Aukland. Highly recommend staying in Devonport at the Esplanade and enjoying the easy access to all the islands and the city center via the ferry which is fast and sleek. Emma, Tanya, Matilda and the entire staff made our stay great! Thank you -- Robert Hays & Gina Carlson

Just an overnight stay so not much time invested in finding out about the hotel other than a comfortable bed and close to cafes. Arrived 15 minutes before the kitchen shut so appreciated the apple I had with me but wishing there had been a little more on the room service menu to have as a snack. The kitchen probably wouldn't have been very pleased had I ordered at that time anyway. The hotel offered exactly what i needed; bed and bathroom. It is quite old so was looking like a spruce-up would do it a world of good. The lift was near my door so a bit noisey, and street noise filters up too. The staff were very pleasant and efficient. Situated perfectly to access Devonport shops and cafes.

We have just returned from a fabulous weekend celebrating my husband's 85th Birthday staying 2 nights at the wonderful historic Esplanade Hotel. We were upgraded from a basic room to a Harbour view suite and such a lovely time. The meals and the service were excellent and we have booked a return visit for early next year. Thanks Esplanade

Three old friends caught up in the bar for an after work drink. Quiet ti start with then filled with commuters but still maintained a good atmosphere. Friendly service and a good selection if beers. This will be a must return to bar for us.

Spent 2 nights at the esplanade in Devonport such an awesome spot right on the Waitemata harbour views to Auckland and rangitoto. The food and service was excellent and the room perfect for the views and watching the world go by.
