Wonderful guesthouse in a great neighborhood filled with restaurants yet walking distance to downtown and across the street from the bus stop for an easy ride downtown. My room was comfortable and clean albeit a little small (inquire about size ahead of time) but had a lovely patio area with a table and chairs. The hosts are incredibly wonderful. My...

Ponsonby Manor is a worthwhile alternative to the big league in the city, but close by. We booked the penthouse room with its own verandah and view, which was compact but comfortable for two nights. The restaurants and cafes in Ponsonby Road are handy and good quality. Rob and Jill provide friendly and helpful service at Ponsonby Manor. Thank you.

We stayed 3 nights and Jill and Rob were wonderful hosts and very helpful with tips on things to see and getting around Auckland. The location is very central with restaurants and cafes straight across the road. Auckland center was only a 30 minute walk or via InnerLink bus with stops right outside the door. (Bus comes every 10 minutes),...

Ponsonby is a hip little neighborhood with some amazing restaurants and bars. The Red Monkey is just across from a great selection of them all. The owners are very sweet, welcoming, and not imposing. They will give you a good run down of the closest options, but it is well worth exploring and asking around for suggestions as well. There...

Stayed here for the nights whilst touring in new zealand. The rooms are a delight with everything you need but the best is the communal facilities of a fully equipped kitchen and the excellent laundry facilities which are so welcome on a four week holiday. It's convenient for both the city and the fab bars and cafes in ponsonby. The...

What a lovely place! Peaceful and clean. Very welcoming host, goes out of her way for you. Great location in a happening neighborhood. Plenty of bars and restaurants around. Can walk to CBD (35mins), uber for 10$ or take a bus from a stop right across the street.

My wife and I stayed at Ponsonby Manor for two nights. We had a warm welcome from Jill, the proprietor who was a very pleasant lady. The room was clean and comfortable, but on the small side. Especially with our three suitcases as well. The shower was very good, but the sink was too small to effectively wash and shave...

Dear Burt Thank you for taking the time to post a review for your stay here at The Ponsonby Manor. Of course I am disappointed that you found your room too small to accommodate yourselves and your luggage as well as you would have wished. We do have extra storage space if guests require it.

We were greeted warmly by Jill after arriving at 2am with 3 young children in tow. The room was just big enough, quiet and with comfortable beds. The location is amazing, right in the centre of ponsonby with many places to eat just a short walk away. Parking was easy too. Overall I was very happy there and didn't want...
