Ponsonby House was recommended by a friend and our stay exceeded our expectations. In a perfect location (easily found using public transport), it felt like we were staying with good friends, as the service was warm, homely and friendly. Jonathan and Bernadette are fantastic hosts. We stayed in the Jasmine room, with its wrap around windows, comfy king-size bed and excellent bathroom, with a nice deep bath! The room also has multiple TV channels via Sky and fast complementary Wi-Fi. 5 Star quality linen, towels and bathrobe were also a great touch. We were presented with afternoon tea (warm home-made scones, jam and tea), which was so lovely and again gave us that extra special feeling of being well looked after. After a great nights sleep, we awoke to the smell of croissants accompanied by fresh fruit, juice, Greek yogurt and various cereals. Tea and Coffee (cafeteria) is also available in the room. It really was a wonderful stay and we are so pleased that we found this excellent B&B. We will pass on the recommendation to friends, family and fellow travelers to Auckland.
