“Clean and a cool pool!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

We stayed here our first 2 nights in Auckland. The websites vary on the parking - it is not free as some say - the hotel website does say they charge - and in fact they do. IT is $15 a night - it is secure, underground with key card entry. Everything at the hotel is key card entry, a nice secure feeling. The room was clean with a nice kitchenette. I was specifically looking for a pool to swim in - and this hotel has that! It is a cool pool too - suspended put from the second floor. Walking into the city to the Quay or the Sky Tower is doable - but not super close and not flat. We utilized the laundry in the room which is a great addition. Over all an enjoyable stay - Lizzie at the front desk was very personable on check in and check out. She showed us around the property when we got there. And the area around the hotel is quaint with cafe's around the corner.

Well appointed and well furnished apartment; quiet too for a central apartment. Great location, easy walk into city centre and harbour and plenty of restaurants just around the corner. Friendly, helpful staff - great place to stay.

We stayed here for two nights on our way back to Europe after handing back the campervan. Staff are great, friendly and helpful. The apartments are spacious, well equipped, and well maintained. We'd stay here again next time we are in Auckland.

Theses apartments are nicely appointed and spacious with all the facilities to make your stay easy, including a full kitchen and washing machine and dryer ( so useful if travelling with children) and cable tv. The bathrooms were clean but probably due for renovation. The gym is small but functional and there is also a lap pool. The staff were very obliging and assisted with every request. The rooms were serviced most days during our stay. Wi-fi is very expensive however many of the restaurants and cafés on Parnell rd have free wi-fi.

The area of Parnell is a great part of Auckland. There are a number of good restaurants and cafés nearby as well as a small green grocer and a mini-market. Don't miss Burgerfuel and the Windsor Castle is a great pub.

There is a taxi rank outside the apartments and a bus stop around the corner for the Link Bus that will take you to most parts of central Auckland. If you are travelling back to AKL by taxi, it is worth asking reception to book it for you. The fare was $35 cash which was considerably less than the $80 we paid for a taxi from the airport to the Quest. I have stayed here on three previous occasions and would definitely stay here again

I spent 3 days here while attending a work hui. Quest Parnell did everything I expected and more. High standard of decor, very comfortable bed. Spacious bathroom area with washing machine if needed. Gym and pool available, but I enjoyed walking through the Parnell area in the mornings, it has beautiful views, the domain and museum is in walking distance...as are the Newmarket shops... a must to visit. Will return, great cafe for brekkie on the doorstep too.

Room Tip: I was on the ground level...3. But my colleague was up on level and had a great view of the sky towe...

Very nice room, host Penny was amazing. Close to good restaurants. Will be back. Pool and gym are good. Parnell is very nice place to stay, rose gardens are beautiful. Cibo restaurant is one of the finest dining restaurants I've ever been to, a must for dinner

Sayed 3 nights on 2 separate occassions in two diferent rooms; Great location in quiet back street of Parnell; a trendy cafe-oriented part of Auckland; very secure rooms; secure undercover parking (at extra cost); quiet reasonable sized room with good facilities; friendly staff available at front desk during normal business hours from what we could tell; comfortable king bed; very clean; good tv reception with free sky; aircon was quiet and worked well - heating and cooling. A reasonable rate was offered by on-line search.
