Reviewed 6 December 2012

We stayed our final three nights of a four week trip to New Zealand at the Quest apartments in Parnell. Over the four weeks we stayed at several Quest properties and this one was the best.

Easy parking, the internet worked first time, the one bedroom apartment looked brand new and had views of the War Memorial Museum and the Sky Tower. Comfortable bed, good quality linens, dishwasher, laundry, desk area and lounge.
We saw the gym and pool but didn't use them. They looked great.
We managed to lock ourselves out on our last night and the night concierge system works perfectly. We gained access without a song and dance.

It was the most expensive place we stayed (not by much) but it really was worth the extra.

Highlt recommended.

Room Tip: They all looked good to me.

We were travelling with our elderly Mother so this location was perfect for the restaurants and shops. The location of Quest is just off the main st of Parnell . A very quiet location. The Quest also has a gym and a lap pool which we didn't use but looked great. We had a two bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms which was very handy travelling with 4. Also excellent freindly service from reception.

We stayed here 4 years prior to the recent visit for only one night before flying out. This time we booked up for 3 nights to catch up with friends. Very comfortable, clean, quiet as on the last trip. We arrived after a long-haul flight and were able to have the room earlier, thanks to the very helpful staff member. The rooms are very well equipped and the location is ideal for walking in to the city. Nearby restaurants are plentiful and we pre-booked the Shuttle service to and from the airport. Would stay here every visit to Auckland.

Room Tip: Book well ahead.

Wanted to get to know Parnell better, and this was the spot to do that. Quest Parnell is really well appointed and comfortable, and very handy to the cafes etc. The service is great, the rooms are spacious. Would have been nice to have a balcony, but could still open the doors wide which was good.
With the link bus service so good, we didn't hire a car, and visited the city and Newmarket easily.
So many great cafes and restaurants to choose from.
Will definitely stay ther again,

This was a great place to stay. You can walk to most places, and the lap pool and gym are good. The rooms are spacious and fully equipped. Best of all was the fantastic service - Pennie and the team were always smiling and happy to help in any way. We would always stay here while in Auckland.

This apartment was a 2 minute walk to the main part of Parnell Road, one minute from great cafes, buses and shops, and just a 5 minute bus/taxi ride to Queen Street. Clean, spacious, modern, great facilities, lovely outdoor lap pool, small gym, good staff, and great value for money.
