“Affordable & Convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Stayed here as a first stop from Australia to catch up with friends. Hotel was easy to find (by car) being on direct route from airport to city and convenient for our expected travels to the North the following day.

Top floor room had recently been renovated and was clean and tidy with all furniture and fittings in excellent condition. Access via open access a bit out of date and open to (bad) weather but functional. Room had a balcony which provided great views of the city and harbour.

Breakfast was provided in the restaurant and proved to be very enjoyable.

Extensive off-street car park on first-come, first-served basis which could mean a little walk in bad conditions but for us it was great. Although located on major thoroughfare this was of minor intrusion during the day and no noise at night (past 10 pm).

Room Tip: Pay a little more and select rooms on top floor with city views to get the best experience.

We booked 21 days in advance through Choice Privileges and got a 20% discount. As a result we had exceptional value for money even though we chose a 'budget room' (Room 31), which was quite small but recently refurbished and very clean. The bathroom was equally good. As in many hotels, a double room only qualifies for a single chair. It seems to be the norm but is difficult to explain. The reception were very helpful. The breakfast was good although a little expensive, which is in keeping with the up market suburb of Parnell.
The French market each Saturday and Sunday should not be missed.
My only concern is the 3 flights of outdoor, concrete stairs to reach our room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room what appears to be a new building, ie in the same block as reception

Well-appointed hotel in Parnell, a short distance from downtown Auckland. Had king-size begs, fairly large rooms, all of which were recently upgrades and modernized. All conveniences. Our room had a balcony which overlooked the Auckland city skyline which was very nice. Had outside corridors, and a full service restaurant. Helpful staff at front desk. The only downside is this hotel seems to cater to foreign tourist groups, which can be very loud and inconsiderate. We experienced doors slamming, parents shouting to one another, and children running up and down the corridors well into the late evening. The walls are very thin and do little to dampen the sound. If you are unlucky and have these people near you, your stay might not be very restful. Other than the clientele this hotel attracts, the hotel is just fine.

Excellent location for being 20 min walking distanve from the center. Our room was very nice with a lovely view to the center.The room was clean and the furniture looked new. Full english breakfast was very good. Value for money if you want to stay close to the center.

Stayed for 2 nights and was very comfortable. Room very clean, great view of the city (room 403). Didn't eat on the premises so can't comment on the food.

10 minute drive to city, 30 minutes to airport, 10 minute walk into Parnell where there is lots of places to eat and drink.

Staff very helpful especially with a left luggage request, we needed to leave something there for 2 weeks and they were very obliging.

We have stayed there twice in a family suite and it cannot be faulted. It is extremely clean and they provide little extras such as milk in the fridge. We had two bedrooms and the adults bedroom had two double sized beds with loads of closet space which was great as we were there for at least a week each time. The kitchenette was well equipped and if you walked down Gladstone road there are shops ten minutes walk away to buy bread, flowers, sushi etc
The location is excellent, we could walk up to the Parnell shops easily and taxi rides from the city are cheap as it is surprisingly close to everything. Despite being almost a "city" hotel it is still really quiet. We had a lovely balcony with a superb view of the museum, sky tower and even the port. They provide completely new toiletries every day and there is even a DVD player which worked with my American dvd's. Most importantly the staff were always really nice. They always said hello and were really friendly whenever we went for breakfast in the cafe (my children really like the pancakes). I would really recommend the Parnell to anyone who wants to be really close to the city centre but still able to relax in a quiet environment.

A typical Kiwi mix and match of Motel,Hotel and conference centre that seems to be working. Good restaurant that serves all 3 types of customer plus Cafe. Ground floor customers can have tricky
