“Great location but beware of noisy trains ! Ear plugs provided on bedside tables!!”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

We loved the location. Newmarket is a good area to be in. It has great shops.Nuffield St, Morrow St, Teed St & Osborne St for good boutiques, ladies. I can't comment on menswear as I had a one tracked mind !!
Teed St Larder is great for breakfast , lunch , coffee, great juices and smoothies too.
Zarbo Delicatessen and Cafe in Morriw St is really good, too.
Buses run down to the waterfront etc on a regular basis from Broadway.
Getting back to the accommodation:
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
They offered us the use of their Navman for excursions in car. This was great and made driving in the city and beyond a breeze.
Our 1 bedroom apartment was on the railway line side.
As I am a light sleeper I asked to be moved to quiet side but apartments were fully booked.
We were on the 5th floor. When I saw that earplugs were provided on bedside tables I was immediately alarmed . I have never struck this before and have traveled very extensively!
The trick when using earplugs is to travel with a small container of Vaseline & to apply to earplugs prior to pushing into ears. This prevents skin being damaged and causing irritation when removing.
The passenger trains were fine but every so often a freight train, perhaps, went by and it sounded like it was coming into our room!
I must add that my husband slept through this and my own earplugs, which I always travel with, blocked out all noise.
We stayed here 5 nights.
This 'noisy ' side is the sunny side, so you can choose between sunshine or quietness .
The bed was very comfortable.

Reviewed 16 February 2013

Stayed for two nights on a business trip - couldn't get usual hotel in town and this was closest option. This property is better than some other Quest locations I've used, but it still some way off what would be considered a 'normal' modern standard.

The room was clean and well presented, but the furniture is old fashioned and in my room a little worn out. Service was good both days and the bathroom was a good size and well equipped.

My major complaint would be noise. I had a room right next to the lift shaft which meant regular noise every time the lifts were used. The apartment block is also RIGHT next to a railway line and there were regular, very noisy trains passing by. You know that noise might be an issue when you find complimentary ear plugs in the bathroom.

The location is good, however, if you aren't bothered about a central Auckland spot. Really well placed for the shops, cafes and other entertainment in Newmarket.

Will appeal to some and is reasonable value for money, but I won't stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the block, away from lifts, main road and railway line.

Paul, I'm sorry our decor wasn't to your taste. Its the first time we have been old fashioned. However we are due to refurbish this year and hope you will revisit us accordingly. I'm pleased our service didn't let you down.

Have read the reviews here and was worried about the railway tracks and the noise.I stayed in room 512 (5th floor) and the apartment was perfect - spacious and surprisingly quiet with the view of the museum and the tower (OK, and railway tracks, but never mind)! All amenities were there, washing machine, bath, shower, super toileteries and fluffy towels! Most importantly, the apartment was super clean, spotless and with a balcony. I do not recall sleeping on such a comfy matress too, absolutely perfect. When I checked in, I was asked to park the car, but needed to go round the building. It was peak hour and the traffic was pretty heavy, so I declined to use the hotel parking and decided to park opposite in a public carpark. A very nice receptionist then suggested I take the space the manager of the hotel uses which was 2metres away. What a nice gesture! Thank you and will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: there is a railway track just outside, so ask for the room facing the Newmarket or top floor (5).

We were visiting Auckland for a family wedding, so booked several apartments at Quest to fit us all. It was fantastic - location was great, right in the middle of Newmarket and public transport into the centre of Auckland was right around the corner. Facilities were great - kitchen including a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer in the bathroom and they even provided sachets of dishwasher liquid and washing machine powder which I thought was fantastic. You have to pay for internet, I think it was about NZD5 per day, however there is a computer in the reception area which is free.

Room Tip: I think rooms on the second floor have lovely large balconies, but not sure if you have to pay extra...

Quest Newmarket certainly suits a group like yours which is together for an event like the wedding. It would be great to have you back when on vacation or business.

Into my second week at this hotel and very happy. Geat location, clean one bedroom apartment with friendly staff. Security car park, which is reassuring, and plenty of Sky channels to choose from if you don't want to take the short walk to restaurants and entertainment. Only dissapointment is the internet charges. At a time when many hotels now offer free wireless the costs are steep. ($45 for 4 days 3.5Gb download limit or $70 for 7 days 3 Gb download lmit) Will definitely make this my hotel of choice when in Auckland but may wander down the road to a restaurant that offers free wifi (I sound cheap dont I). Tip: ask for room on opposite side of the railway line.

Auroar, Thank you for taking the time to tell us you were enjoying your stay with us. We have tried to run out WiFi at a business premises level to provide the best possible connection 24/7. If you are just clearing emails a free kiosk is available in the Reception area. We look forward to the electric trains and your return stay with us.
