We stayed at the Manor for a few months and we were very sad to leave! I strongly recommend this guest-house if you come to New Zealand for the first time. It is comfortable and spotless, calm and entirely equipped. We really enjoyed the ensuite room with flat screen tv and comfortable beds! Spacious kitchen and high quality equipment throughout!
The Manor is ideally located on Ponsonby road close to shops, cafes, bus stops and bars, with a great view over Auckland CBD and the bay.
Excellent managers Teresa and Clinton are the loveliest people on Earth and will do anything for you to have a great stay. They are very arranging and reliable.
Don't look any further, you won't be disappointed at the Ponsonby Manor!

The Manor is in a beautiful spot and is run by amazing people! We spent our first week in NZ here and the accommodations were more than ideal! Its a very laid back place with everything you need. We bought our van while staying here. The van was not running well at first and they allowed us to use tools and helped us get in touch with a mechanic as well! Stay here, you will not be disappointed!

Staying at the manor was an absolute treat. Upmarket, stylish accommodation in the hub of trendy Ponsonby. The hosts, Teresa and Clinton, are fantastic and meet their guests every need.
We loved our very comfortable stay there.

We stayed at the manor for several weeks and we didn´t want to leave this beautiful place!

It´s very central and located in one of the best and most beautiful areas in Auckland central- Ponsonby!
We simply loved it! and hope to stay there once again!

The Manor provides all you need for a comfortable stay --> very clean and comfortable rooms with own bathroom, flatscreen, washing machine, sky tv lounge, nice garden area with BBQ,...etc

The community kitchen is very big, modern and with lots of equipement. Internet is provided with WLAN, it was best WLAN speed we had in NZ!

If you are spending some time in Auckland, you sould stay here!!

Once again many thanks to Teresa and Steven for our great stay!

I was looking for a central location in Auckland, because I wanted to be able to explore the CBD, eastern suburbs and north shore. This, indeed, was a good location. I rented a car, and occasionally car parking was an issue, but that was due as much to my being unfamiliar with the territory as anything. Once I figured out how the streets worked, parking was no more than a block away at most. The house is on a busy street, but noise was not a problem for me in Room 9. There are numerous cafes, restaurants and shops within an easy walk, plus a New World grocery store not too much further. The other guests in the house were quiet during the day, had a lively dinner, and then settled in by 9 o'clock or so at night. Very nice!! My ensuite was small but beautiful and serviceable. There was plenty of storage in the room for my clothes, and having coin laundry on site was nice -- they even provide the laundry powder! I stayed in Room 9 which gave me a beautiful view of the Sky Tower and the aroma of the cooking in the kitchen below. I'd stayed there again and recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: Room 9 is upstairs with a queen-size bed, small but serviceable ensuite bathroom and an amazing view of the CBD. When I opened the curtains during the day, the room heated up nicely.
