As the title says, it is convenient for a one night stand. I had a room on the main floor, with a window, ok, but straight on a wall ... So if you are not looking for a view and are just staying for a night, fine. Rooms are clean though, internet is not for free, and is not super...

In general, this was a fairly good hotel. Clean, and in a tremendous location with a great range of restaurants very close by. Also, a good supermarket is near the hotel and within easy walking distance if carrying bags of food etc. That said, I was disappointed with the room I was allocated. The windows were covered by shutters, so...

Had a two bedroom apartment overlooking the park across Ponsonby Rd. Comfortable sleep and no traffic noise. The apartment was relatively spacious and clean. It was a bit disconcerting having doors to a balcony with no rails but clearly labeled not to enter.

Great location and a nice little apartment that did exactly as required and expected. Friendly, helpful service at the desk. All very standard and hardly worth doing a review except for its terrible WiFi - it really should be free in this enlightened age but as work was paying I half happily paid the minimal fee, through a bizarre touch...

We stayed at this hotel arriving late from overseas. Having realistic expectations of this business hotel, it was okay for our night's sleep. It was disappointing that no internet was included. Waking up in the morning, a few unordinary things were noticed - the bathroom fan and lights were broken, along with some other spotlights in the room. There is...

Great location, close to Countdown, cafes and bars. The staff were lovely but the place needs a makeover. The bed was super comfy but the comforter was stained on the top and underneath. Yuck! Shower had good water pressure but old and cracking in the corner, pink body fat on the shelve and it was falling apart. The shower head...

Centrally located in Ponsonby. $15.00 for parking in a secure carpark underground. Our room was on the second floor with a King bed overlooking the courtyard. Nothing fancy but clean tidy and reasonably spacious. Kitchen supplied a toaster, microwave, fridge, jug and tea coffee making facilities with a small sink also in this area as well as in the bathroom....

From this hotel it was easy to walk out onto the main road and explore the local shops and restaurants of Ponsonby. I arrived (very) late at night, but access to the apartment was easy enough. A quick call to the night manager who let me in with easy instructions to get my room card from the reception counter. The...

Two night stay for business. Chose Quest Ponsonby for good location. But don't try finding it at night if driving, unless you know exactly where it is. Sign not illuminated, access to reception is down an alleyway off street. Reception closed before 6pm Saturday when I arrived, which I wasn't told when I phoned earlier in the day to inquire...
