“Very enjoyable and just suited us”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

We stayed for 4 days and our daughter and her family for 7 days.
Everything was just great. We were on the 4th floor great view all the way from the city (just perfect at Night) to over the harbour to Rangiototo nice and quiet and just so suitable. Close to everything, Mission Bay, Kelly Taltons, eateries in Parnell, shopping in NewMarket.
Very helpful staff, great value and great for our families. Alhough we were on different floors even after booking over 6months before not a hassle transporting wee people between the floor staff always smiling and helpful. Hawve been busy singing your praises

Room Tip: Try and get on the 4th floor great views

We booked one of the self contained rooms with great views over the harbor from the balcony. Great neighborhood not to far from city center. Near Auckland Domains and salt water bath. Very clean and well functioning rooms. This is a good choice for families when staying in Auckland.

We stayed one night in two 2 bedroom apartments. However they were on opposite side on the building but on the same floor. The fourth floor had good views of the city especially room 416.
Beds were big , pillows plentiful , heater available. Showers were great with plenty of hot water. However one has to step into a tub, maybe a little bit of a problem for older folks.
The kitchen was smallish with microwave ,stove ,adequate for simple cooking. No dishwasher available though. Some apartments has washer and dryer (room 401) but others have to do the laundry in the common laundry room on the ground level at $3 each for washing and drying.Two small cartons of milk were provided in the fridge. Altogether a very clean spacious apartment just refurbished last year according to reception.

Location wise , you cannot fault it. It is in a quiet neighbourhood yet close enough to the shopping malls and plenty of eateries about 10 minutes walk, I would say. It is also about 10 minute drive to the skycity casino.

Internet is not free but we signed up as members and received 2GB free.

All in all , a value for money stay . Would stay here again .

Stayed four nights here in two bed apartment. Views from the balcony even on the 3rd floor were great, nice safe quite area yet very handy to all the local sights i.e. Museum etc.. an plenty of eateries back on the main parnell rise. Room was clean, quite spacious an well serviced during our stay with reception happy to help with any requests. The washer an dryer in the room were great too with a large family. Overall extremely happy with our stay nothing else we researched compares for the price.

I booked this hotel online through Expedia, and therefore paid up front for four days. Check in was quick, although it was at 11pm. The best thing about this motel is the shower - Great water pressure and a handheld shower head. It is within walking distance to Parnell, where there are nice shops and cafes, but there are a few in Parnell itself that are much more conveniently located. I think the Parnell Inn is one of them. We had a 1 bdrm. king suite, because it was the only type room available, and unfortunately was located in a separate building at the back of the complex without a view, and with construction going on in back. Luckily that stopped at about 5pm each day. The hotel refused to move us to the other building unless we paid an extra $66.00 per day. When you book, I would advise to go through the hotel itself and ask for a room with a view. The other building has nice views of the harbor. Oh yeah: Very hard bed and pillows - felt a little like Fred Flintstone's bed. The staff at the front desk told me all the beds in the motel are the same :( Also would not recommend the restaurant - There's a reason it's empty. Very expensive for what you get. Go to Parnell and get a quiche or meat pie at the bakery about halfway down the street.

Room Tip: When you book, I would advise to go through the hotel itself and ask for a room with a view.

we stayed here for 2 nights during start of our trip. Good location with many restaurants near by. Famous Auckland museum is 15 minutes walk away.. if you are driving max 5 minutes. Bus Stops are also a minute away with good connectivity of public Buses to Central area.

Reception was warm and helpful. Only negative i can think of is no free wi-fi :).

Overall very good Accommodation. We had great start of our trip!!

This hotel is slightly out of the centre, but an easy bus ride into the heart of the city. Short walk to the nearest bus stop.
Room as it should be, comfy bed and other facilities all as they should be. Very useful laundry room on the premises for travellers with washing to do.
We also ate in the restaurant as there are no other eateries really nearby. We were tired and didn't want to go back into the centre after a day's wandering. Food excellent and reasonably priced.
We'd use this again for another visit.
