Bavaria Bed & Breakfast Hotel
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We stayed in the Bavaria B&B at Mount Eden, it was okay, not brilliant, just okay, a little dated, we only stayed here one night on the first day of our trip then we stayed two nights at the end of our trip, we stayed in different rooms both times, Breakfast was alright, a little German influence with the breakfast if you like Frankfurters, we just had cereal toast.The elderly lady who cooked breakfast in the mornings, was unfriendly, but we noted that she liked the German guests, very talkative towards them.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs had adjoining balconies.

The owners were on holidays, lots of stairs (and none of help to push the bags up), breakfast smelled and tasted weird, waaay too many guests (10 rooms house is still considered as a B&B?!)..
But maybe we went on a bad day.
Good location, at least!

Simple decoration, basic equipment in the room (all the other rooms we had in New Zealand would provide a kettle, a TV set and a hair-dryer), but spacious. It is a good place to stay in Auckland with easy access to city centre by bus, and lovely hosts to help you.

We often go to Auckland and stay at hotels and B&B's and we were nicely surprised by this B&B in Mt Eden. Our room was at the front of the house, a very spacious room and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was sufficient to set you up for the day with a continental and cooked breakfast on offer. The coffee at breakfast was filter and tasted great. The tea and coffee otherwise is instant and available in the large guest lounge only. The guest lounge has the TV and a computer available for emailing. There is free Wi Fi on site which was good. There was ample off street parking and whilst it was very close to the city and restaurants the Bavarian is situated on a leafy quiet suburban street.

Only negatives

1. It would have been nice to be able to make a coffee in your own room - but not a real biggie as a negative.

2. The bathroom off our room was dated but adequate - the issue here though it that our bathroom did not have a heated towel rail so we had to ask for fresh towels in the morning as the one's used the night before were still damp. They were very obliging and extra towels were given.

Would we stay again and would we recommend it to others - YES ABSOLUTELY

Room Tip: Get a room on the main floor of the house as they seemed to be really nice and you don't have to...

My wife and I stayed in the Bavaria Bed & Breakfast Hotel. The best that I can say about it is that it was OK. The room was satisfactory but not very appealing – a bit run down. The breakfast was ordinary, with not very much choice of cooked options (actually the choice was take it or leave it). The location was reasonably convenient, but not particularly close to anything that was of interest to us. For the price we expected something a little better. We would not stay there again, or recommend it to friends.

We stayed overnight and the Bavaria was ok as it was near to Eden Park where we were going but wouldn't be keen to stay there otherwise. The room we had was clean and simple with slightly dated furniture and decor. The bathroom a bit basic. Breakfast ok but not nearly as good as most B and Bs we stayed at. More like a small slightly down at heel hotel than a B and B.

This B and B is in an excellent location and Ulrika who we met on the second morning was a good host. The overnight caretaker was also friendley and helpful. However the initial welcome and assistance from another colleague can only be described as no more than adequate and courteous. The breakfast is not to the standard of other B and Bs in NZ and the rooms appear to be a bit dated and in need of some freshning. The wifi arrangements are complicated but free.
