Quest Ponsonby
Ranked #57 of 65 Hotels in Auckland Central
Reviewed 5 December 2011

We stayed at the Quest Ponsonby for our first night in NZ and found everything just perfect. As we were arriving afterhours, they'd left an envelope with our keys and instructions at reception. The unit was spotlessly clean and the bed comfortable. Though not huge it was just right for a short stay, and we loved the feeling of independence and privacy. The proximity to lots of restaurants was a bonus, so having parked our rental car securely downstairs, we were able to walk everywhere easily. Our room was also surprisingly quiet (3rd floor facing west away from main road). A really nice start to our holiday.

We were 5 people in a suite of 2 rooms and a living room. One room was a bit tight with no drawers (only hanging space) and no TV (the kids room had that!) but the living space and the bathroom were speacious, very clean and well equipped. Service was exceptional: we had encountered an issue with their Internet provider (our mistake), and they did their utmost to solve it. Location in Ponsonby is great near shops and restaurants. A very nice experience overall.

The Quest Ponsonby is a good location if heading in from the airport and don't want to get caught up in the city traffic hussle and bussle. The reception hours are restrictive so make sure you get there in time, or make other arrangements. Parking is very limited so let them know well beforehand. Close to restaurants and cafes for breakfast and dinner.

I have stayed here (& the new Market property) a few times, Location great ,Studios are "OK", Air Con hasn't worked on a couple of stays. Showing signs of age/neglect (My room had a soap/shampoo holder in the shower completely broken) Staff make a lot of noise in the hall ways, and I even had to step over one sitting on the floor when I left my room! Lifts have cheap laminated signs everywhere re parking rules, reception hours, restaurant signs etc, just needs some TLC and it could be great as price is good for the location Although, the New Market property is more expensive and higher star rating but the Posonby property could learn a few thing from the New Market operator.

The location is great for this property - on Ponsonby Rd, a short walk in one direction to the shopping and cafe district, or the other to K Road. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room was basic but functional and everything was clean.
We arranged for an 11.30am check out and had housekeeping at the door at 11.00am, but other than that, fine for somewhere to crash for a night or two if you aren't after a luxurious pad. Well priced for the product.

I thought it was great value, great location, clean and quiet. We paid $135 for a studio and i was very pleased to find that it had a washer and dryer and they even provide a small carton of fresh milk in the fridge to go with the complimentary tea.

We booked the Quest Ponsonby directly through their website. We stayed at the begining of our recent stay to NZ and then at the end of our stay. They offer great weekend rates. We paid $115 per night (Saturday and Sunday nights). However, this hotel is mainly used for business customers so their rates considerable increase during the week.

The first room we got must have been the executive studio as there was a washing machine and dryer and a basic ktichen area. The second time we stayed there were no laundry facilities.

Ponsonby is a great area. There are lots of cafes, restaurants and bars. It takes around 30 minutes to walk into the city. There is a great bus service called the Link ($1.80-from memory) it goes to the city, viaduct, Parnell, New Market and K Road.
