The AWSA onsite team

Situated on the site of the historic Prince's Wharf, we are just across the gantry from the Hilton Hotel and adjacent to many of Auckland's best restaurants and cafes and just a stones throw from the city's transport hubs.

Prince's Wharf began to be constructed in 1913 and named after the Prince of Wales who visited Auckland in 1921.  Originally it was created as the home of the then Auckland Harbour Board (now the Ports of Auckland).  In the 1980’s and 1990’s the wharf was controversially redeveloped so house both the Ports of Auckland and a further development by David Henderson with a complex of apartments, commercial and a hotel that reflected is sea-facing origins in the form of a cruise ship (hence the port hole and the pointy bow shaped building end details).  Today if is home amongst others to Auckland Waterfront Serviced Apartments! (and is still home to surrounding public space)

As a place to stay – it is still one of the best places to experience the very best that the Waitemata Harbour has offer – whether it’s the daily cruise and port activity or the week night sailing races….

Auckland Waterfront Serviced Apartments are a collection of privately owned apartments managed by local owners and their team of onsite Managers.  The well travelled team recognised that often travellers and corporate guests are looking for something different – a real home away from home…with all the amenities and a bit of independence!  (Not a hotel but a place to relax, explore and breathe for a few days).   Operating on the site for approximately 18 years (and growing steadily over that period), the team are passionate about providing something a little different for their guests – and all right in the heart of the city!
