Viaduct Harbour Accommodation

The best Auckland waterfront hotels are in Viaduct Harbour. It’s is the most sought-after location in Auckland for accommodation, and it’s easy to see why. Auckland’s waterfront is gorgeous; there’s nothing better than an early morning stroll around the Viaduct Harbour. Except, perhaps, breakfast at one of the many fabulous restaurants.

Waterfront Hotel Park Hyatt Auckland from Viaduct Bridge

Since it opened in 2020, Park Hyatt has become the finest 5-star hotel in Auckland. With 195 large spacious, and luxuriously furnished rooms in the best location in Auckland’s Viaduct. No expense has been spared in the construction of this magnificent hotel. Even the 25m pool has harbour views. And with 4 restaurants and bars, plus conference and wedding facilities, this has rapidly become a popular venue for high-end functions. Perfect for Couples, wealthy families, and executive business travelers.

The Hilton Hotel Auckland waterfront.

Auckland is known as the City of Sails. A stay at the Hilton literally puts you out on the harbour amongst the yachts. It’s located on the tip of Princess wharf. The views of Auckland’s waterfront are incredible.

Princes Wharf is right next to Viaduct Harbour, which is a must-do location to visit. Mainly because it’s New Zealand’s leading restaurant district. There are more restaurant choices in Viaduct Harbour than you’ll be able to try during your stay.

It’s a short walk to Auckland’s central business district, Britomart train station, and the Maritime Museum. And it’s also next to the ferry terminal putting Devonport and Waiheke Island in easy reach.

As you would expect from the Hilton, the rooms are generously sized and luxuriously appointed. The heated outdoor pool offers incredible views across to Devonport. Hilton Auckland is perfect for executive business travelers, couples getaways, or families. This 5-star hotel near Viaduct Harbour isn’t cheap, but it is an experience you will never forget.

The Sebel Hotel at Viaduct Harbour in the evening

This is an apartment hotel and doesn’t have all of the amenities you might expect from a quality waterfront hotel. However, The Sebel Viaduct Harbour makes up for it with its location. This is right in the heart of the viaduct above some of Auckland’s finest restaurants. It can be a little noisy on weekend nights as it’s in the busiest part of the viaduct. The higher the room, the less noise there is. You will be spoilt for choice of restaurants. No other Auckland hotel puts you into the action of the Viaduct Harbour nightlife like the Sebel.

Romantic Marina View Room Sofitel Viaduct Harbour 5 star luxury hotel room

This is the most luxurious 5-star hotel in Auckland and my pick of the best Viaduct Harbour accommodation. The lobby and shared spaces are incredible, as are the rooms. It’s the best hotel in Auckland for a romantic weekend. Because it’s so romantic, it’s also a fantastic wedding venue.

Sofitel Viaduct Harbour is also the perfect place for an executive retreat. The location is impeccable. Obviously, it’s in the Viaduct Harbour, so it is only a short walk from everything Auckland has to offer. But it’s just far enough away from the bars that it is quieter than other centrally located hotels.

Boasting a fantastic day spa and a first-class restaurant, Sofitel is an experience not to be missed. There are spectacular views of the Viaduct Harbour from the marina view rooms. And all rooms have a balcony. It’s a close walk to many of Auckland’s best restaurants. Don’t miss Baduzzi in Wynyard Quarter or the nearby Auckland Seafood Festival.

M Social Hotel 4 star in Viaduct Harbour

M Social is a great 4 star hotel in Auckland right across the road from the Viaduct Harbour. Because it’s such a great location on Auckland’s waterfront many of the rooms have fabulous sea views.

It’s at the top end of 4 star hotels in Auckland, I’d almost call it a 5 star. With 190 rooms it’s quite large, perfect for families and couples. It’s really close to the Ferry Terminal, Britomart train station and obviously the Viaduct Harbour. This is a top quality Viaduct hotel with a lot of  activities located nearby. The only negative is it doesn’t have a pool.

QT Auckland Hotel Rooftop Bar

Open November 2020, QT Hotel is a 5 Star Design Hotel in Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour. With cool almost whimsical design in a great location this will be a perfect hotel for couples. There’s a range of room sizes the standards a little smaller than you might like but there are plenty of more generous options available as well. QT comes with a restaurant and bar downstairs and one of the best rooftop bars in Auckland.

Waterfront view from Travelodge Hotel Wynyard Quarter

Travelodge Hotel Auckland in Wynyard Quarter is a really well located moderately priced 4 star hotel. It’s a short walk to the bars and restaurants of Wynyard Quarter and the Viaduct. A great place to enjoy a week or a weekend in Auckland.

The Esplanade Hotel

The Esplanade boutique hotel in Devonport

This unique boutique hotel is located on the waterfront in Devonport, a short ferry ride from Auckland CBD. The charming rooms in this heritage building are beautifully decorated in an antique style. The location is amazing, the rooms and the bar are great.

Many reviewers don’t believe the restaurant lives up to the rest of the hotel, however there are many restaurants to choose from in Devonport or a short ferry ride away in the CBD so don’t let that put you off staying in this charming boutique hotel in Devonport.
