In short - I had the best wedding Ive ever had here (OK - the only wedding Ive ever had but we were very happy). I would recommend the Esplanade on several levels
We were organising an international wedding from Overseas and we found the Esplanade staff very easy to deal with and helpful.
We booked out a number of rooms for Guests and they were all comfortable. We booked ourselves the Blake suite and found it beautifully appointed and very comfortable.
Despite the roadworks outside we found the location picturesque and convenient - both with the little town of devenport and to the Ferry to Auckland.
The food was excellent and the staff were very accomodating to provide us the experience we wanted. (We found an Excellent Local Photographer also who did a fantastic Job). We had a small and relatively simple wedding event and we achieved exactly what we wanted and all had a great time.
The Hotel was our base for several days, before the wedding - during and after as guests left to go home. We enjoyed our stayed immensely and would absolutely recommend it to all as a base to stay or as a venue for an event
