Formerly Auckland's busy commercial port, Viaduct Harbour now serves as an upscale residential and dining area. This once run-down neighborhood received a major makeover in the 1990s and boosted its international profile by hosting the popular America's Cup sailing events in 2003. In addition to fashionable apartments, the quarter contains a string of chic restaurants, drawing well-heeled Aucklanders and tourists looking for a fancy dining experience. If you don't feel like dressing up for dinner, stroll around the precinct for a chance to soak up the local atmosphere and see some of the country's most expensive yachts. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Auckland Central holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Viaduct Harbour and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A great area to stroll round the harbour, see the luxury yachts, boats and sights. There are plenty of good bars and restaurants. The Volvo Ocean Race was being set up while we visited. Delightful cou...  more »

  • Doesn't look particularly Auckland will be docked a lot of yachts and boats. Might want to take a walk.

  • Fantastic view perfect room not one thing I could fault amazing place cor romantic night
  • Arrived after a long day of travel to find the room did not look anything like the photos. We paid for Viaduct water views and all we could see was a concrete wall - not a drop of water in sight. The room was filthy and stank of cigarettes and the bed looked like a rollaway from the 80's. We were so disappointed we didn't stay and had to find somewhere else to stay that night at last minute. Don't believe any of the photos you see. False advertising at its peak! If I would give Zero stars I would.
  • Excellent Residence Facility , great Ambiance and very Easy Location to all amenities.
  • It's a small window for reviews, but our stay was brilliant, and the staff member who helped us was kind, courteous and polite! Why, I don't even think Joanne stayed there at all, and she should think twice about her previous review! We were there the same very evening!
  • Great location by the water
