We stayed at Sunderland House our last two nights of our New Zealand trip, and it was a perfect ending. As soon as we arrived we were greeted warmly by Donald and his wife Kathy. Since it was a Sunday night, and we happened to be the only couple staying for that night, we were immediately upgraded to the largest room with a great view of the skydome. The room was beautifully decorated with lots of space. Breakfast was fabulous...served in the library with fresh fruit and home-baked muffins.
We liked walking around the area of Ponsonby with its restaurants and shops. It was very easy to get a bus to the city center so we left our car parked in front of the bed and breakfast for the two days.
Donald was a joy to talk with, and he was so accommodating. Our flight did not leave until the evening so we could keep our luggage there and freshen up before we had to leave for the airport. If you are going to be visiting Auckland, this is the place to stay!
