My mum and I stayed here when we came to Auckland to watch Adele. The accommodation was lovely and the staff very friendly. It was clean and cosy with a beautiful garden. Very close to Auckland CBD too. Would definitely stay here again :)

We love Ponsonby! It was our first experience of Kiwi accommodation and a great one. A warm welcome from the hosts settled us in. Our room was super clean – as was all the accommodation that we stayed in whilst in New Zealand. It’s a great location; just off the centre of town with a fab’ deli opposite for bread...

Wonderful guesthouse in a great neighborhood filled with restaurants yet walking distance to downtown and across the street from the bus stop for an easy ride downtown. My room was comfortable and clean albeit a little small (inquire about size ahead of time) but had a lovely patio area with a table and chairs. The hosts are incredibly wonderful. My...

Ponsonby Manor is a worthwhile alternative to the big league in the city, but close by. We booked the penthouse room with its own verandah and view, which was compact but comfortable for two nights. The restaurants and cafes in Ponsonby Road are handy and good quality. Rob and Jill provide friendly and helpful service at Ponsonby Manor. Thank you.

We stayed 3 nights and Jill and Rob were wonderful hosts and very helpful with tips on things to see and getting around Auckland. The location is very central with restaurants and cafes straight across the road. Auckland center was only a 30 minute walk or via InnerLink bus with stops right outside the door. (Bus comes every 10 minutes),...

Ponsonby is a hip little neighborhood with some amazing restaurants and bars. The Red Monkey is just across from a great selection of them all. The owners are very sweet, welcoming, and not imposing. They will give you a good run down of the closest options, but it is well worth exploring and asking around for suggestions as well. There...

Stayed here for the nights whilst touring in new zealand. The rooms are a delight with everything you need but the best is the communal facilities of a fully equipped kitchen and the excellent laundry facilities which are so welcome on a four week holiday. It's convenient for both the city and the fab bars and cafes in ponsonby. The...
