Far from the impression given on the web site, we found this hotel very average. The good point is the situation on Parnell Road: you need to walk ten minutes to reach the Auckland Domain, and it is not so far from CBD. The two-room appartment is in the basement: one room has almost no natural light, and the other...

This 3 star motel is located in the heart of Parnell surrounded by 20 or more restaurants, cafes, bars plus shops and hotels. Right on the Inner bus route, you are in city centre in 10 mins. Property has cafe at front and 16 or so rooms split over 2 floors. Rooms are very motel style and quality. Clean but...

This place is rather poor for the money. The entrance is modern-ish but the rest of the place isn't. It's really more of a backpacker type place than a motel. It's handy for Parnell restaurants and ok for one night but really there are better places around for the money.

Usually I stay in the city for concerts but because Parnell is in relatively close proximity to the Vector and the Britomart I thought why not give it a go? You are not spoiled for choice when it comes to places to stay in Parnell. This convenient wee place seemed a good option, and it was. However a few things...

The location of this Inn is very good and within walking distance of downtown Auckland, Parnell village is a really nice base. It's excellent that the inn offers free car parking. The inn itself is quite dated and could be cleaner. We stayed in room 11 which was a good size, the en-suite bathroom was spacious too and had a...

We stayed for a weekend. The location was great, with restaurants / cafes / shops / yoga / la cigale market very short walk away, we also walked to the waterfront. When we arrived, we asked if there was a different room, as our room looked directly onto a large office building. We were told that the hotel was fully...

So many things... Let's start with a positive: The owners were lovely. Now - we stayed in a family unit downstairs. - half of the lights in the ceiling/walls didn't work so they had lamps everywhere, it was like being in a cave with a power cut! - the toilet was FILTHY, as were the skirting boards, window sills etc,...

We had an overnight stay here for a concert. Arrived earlier and even though they had a small reception the lady was kind enough to offer a space to leave our things while we go around Parnell. The room was good enough for its price, as an inn it is very clean and well-appointed. The bed was too soft but...

Beautiful place. I stayed here for one night as I had a concert at Vector arena. For $130 a night I was quite shocked. The room I stayed in was beautifully clean. Some may say small I say cosy. The owners of the place were extremely welcoming. Location? You have everything you need. Bus stops right in front. 2 minute...
