The Esplanade Hotel

The Esplanade Hotel offers boutique hotel accommodation right on the waterfront and in the heart of Devonport village, 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 hotel, which was built in 1903, has been elegantly restored and has a character and charm all of its own.

People exiting the Ferry from downtown Auckland immediately encounter the Esplanade Hotel with its Edwardian architecture and amazing waterfront location.  Many of them wish they had known about us before they booked their trip as they could have stayed in the quiet village of Devonport without the hassles of the inner city, yet be only a 10 minute ferry ride to the CBD.

The Esplanade Hotel has long been a seaside resort and is a haven to escape to at the end of the day if you have been on a tour or site-seeing… sit back and relax in the bar or restaurants and watch the Auckland city lights and harbour activity.  Our friendly staff aim to ensure you have a relaxing and memorable experience.

We are proud to be partnered with NZBF18 and offer a special rate for our Windsor rooms of $180 per night.
