My experience at Ponsonby Manor was by far met with the most hospitality that I have experienced traveling to date. We contacted the Manor in an emergency and they accommodated us on the spot, quickly, efficiently and with extreme understanding as to our situation. After staying for 3 nights, our accommodations elsewhere for the following days yet again fell through! And Jill (very friendly woman who took care of all the accommodations) called the owner and explained the situation to him. He was very understanding and they arranged for us to stay another week moving around their schedule to make it convenient for us.
They were very professional and run an very good business here. I highly recommend this establishment if you are here for a few days, a week or a month!
My sister had stayed at the Red Monkey Travellers Lodge and had nothing but amazing experiences there as well. She corroborated all the hospitality, good business ethic, and friendliness of the Red Monkey establishments.
I said it once, I'll stay it again-- VERY highly recommended.
Rooms were clean, house was immaculate. Quiet, but in a great and lively location. Each room comes with newly renovated bathrooms and furnishings. Kitchen is well equipped and easy to cook in. Guests are respectful and clean. Worth every penny!
