“Very Good - Fabulous View - Spacious Unit”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

We have stayed here previously and I have to say that the renovations and updates with both rooms and staff have vastly improved this hotel.

We had a large room on the fourth floor which had great views of the harbour and Sky City. The kitchen is perfect for cooking with everything needed and the rooms are cleaned everyday. Free daily newspaper on request and wifi was also available. My only quibble still is the parking as there is no allocated parking for each room and as there were several conferences on during our stay it was sometimes not possible to obtain a park within the grounds.

Location is great for a visit to Auckland, Parnell village is walking distance and there is a very good small shopping centre down Gladstone Road which has everything you need for a short stay.

Highly recommended.

Parnell is an upmarket part of Auckland with lots of restaurants & easy access to city centre, mission bay etc.
The apartment was very comfortable with separate bedroom and good if basic kitchen facility.
Staff were helpful.

Room Tip: Avoid outside stairways if possible as can be noisy.

The rooms are spacious, clean and tidy. Very handy location and I love the views of the city at night, brings back fond memories of the years I spent living in Auckland. Staff were friendly and had no trouble getting trim milk. Downside was the noise, pity money wasnt spent on sound proofing. At 10pm I had to listen to people's TVs, water running through the pipes, footsteps from upper level and inconsiderate parents kids running up and down the outside corridor which vibrates through the room. Then this all started up again prior to 7am in the morning so I did not have a good nights sleep at all. Not sure what the purpose of the skywatch magazine was as the only Sky channels I could find were UK and Chinese tv. No kids channels which was disappointing.

We were impressed with our room. It was large and comfortable with great views. I had hoped that the village restaurants in Parnell were closer than they were. The dining options in the area are not easily accessed.
We ate in the on site restaurant - a bad move. I recommend this hotel highly if you have a car.

We looked at many hotels/B&B's in this area as we needed to stay overnight in central Auckland in order to get to an early morning appt. The location, price and favourable reviews of this hotel, all stood out and we were not disappointed. The room we selected was spotlessly clean, average size (OK for short stay - king bed and one comfy chair) and the view from our room on an upper floor, looking out over Auckland Harbour, both day and night, was amazing. The staff in the dining room for both dinner and breakfast were all efficient and very friendly and the meals were of a good standard and price.
Parnell is an excellent area for visitors to Auckland to base themselves - close to sightseeing, shopping and restaurants in Newmarket, Remuera, Parnell Village and Auckland central. You could cover a lot by walking even with only average fitness.

Room Tip: Upper levels give you a great view of the Harbour.

Stayed here in Feb '13 - near very good bus service to downtown and Parnell Village offers lots of places to eat and shop (all within walking distance of the hotel). the staff were particularly helpful to us. Enjoyed having a room with a view of Auckland and the harbour. If you fancy having fish and chips there's a takeout down the road and they still use newspaper as insulation to keep the fish hot!!
