I chose Ponsonby House based on reviews I saw on this site. I will say Ponsonby house exceeded every expectation my partner and I had. Berndatte (the ownder) is extremely welcoming and hospitable. The room (we stayed in the earl grey room) was perfect, clean and very cozy. The breakfast was very nice and delicious. In the afternoon, we had afternoon tea which was accompanied by homemade scones (A week and a half later, I'm still thinking of them). We HIGHLY recommend Ponsonby house if travelling to Auckland. Our only regret is that we stayed for one night only. We definitely will stay there again on our next trip to New Zealand.
