“Barrycourt lived up to the reviews”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

Great location for the city, Newmarket shopping, Parnell wining and dining, and the motorway south. The 2 bedroom appartment was clean and well equipped with good views of the harbour and city. Front desk service was courteous and efficient. The cost was substantially lower than some nearby motels. Minor complaints were occasional noise from a pump behind the bathroom wall, poor ambience in the bar, and some of the parking is sideways on a steep slope, so care needed with car doors. Overall, we were very satisfied.

Room Tip: Third floor rooms on the northern side have the best views.

I stayed here for one night to attend a concert at the Vector Arena. The room had a fantastic view and everything I needed. Very warm and the bed was fine. Nice neighbourhood and close enough to Vector and the city that I didn't to drive (25 mins or so to Vector). Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Auckland.

Room Tip: High floors have better views.

The room I had (409) had a great view of the city and harbour. The room was a reasonable size, clean and comfortable. There is plenty of free parking on site. The room service was good - the food delivered was nice and hot. I would stay at this hotel again.

Really happy with our stay. It's a gem, an easy walk to Parnell shops and restaurants, great staff, and even VIEWS over auckland harbour and city. Rooms were spacious, with new/er facilities, tea and coffee, very comfortable. Complimentary magazines in the foyer. Loads of parking (free). A swift drive to Britomart/downtown in about 5 minutes, on the weekend. And for the price- pretty darn good for Auckland. Highly recommend (4.5 stars!)

We stayed here for one night when traveling around NZ, and found the hotel to be a nice little retreat near a very charming neighborhood in Auckland. Our room in the south building looked like a motel, but with clean and nicely appointed rooms (comfortable enough, though not luxurious). It's an easy walk to Parnell, and a little longer walk to the CBD (the hotel is on top of a hill and the walk back can be a challenge). If you're looking for a no frills but decent hotel in a more residential neighborhood, then this hotel is for you. If you want something that's more boutique or luxurious, I'd check out some other places...

We just stayed 1 night while we were in Auckland for the Gaga concert. Room was tidy, great facilities, and very good for what we paid.
Cost us $150 for the night, all night room service pizza was delicious, $16....
Only thing was we didnt have a credit card on us had to pay $150 bond, but got that back the next day no troubles.

This hotel is definitely good value for money! We stayed for 3 nights and it suited our needs. The service was pleasant and helpful. Slightly out of Auckland city and free parking which is a bonus in Auckland. The room was compact and it was a little disconcerting to open the front door and immediately be in the bathroom but the room was clean, had everything we needed and was comfortable. We paid for wi-fi however this was almost unusable in our room on the 5th floor, we had to stand outside our room to get a good enough connection. Wasn't a big deal for us but could be annoying for some. Parking was at a premium due to a conference the whole time we were there but we always managed to find somewhere around the back. We would stay again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Higher floors have amazing views which are worthwhile.
