We spent 3 days at Joy and Howard's guesthouse. Very good location, only 10min ferry to reach Auckland. Joy and Howard are very welcoming. Joy likes sharing about main points to be visited around Auckland. Room and bathroom are very clean and breakfast was fantastic especially home-made scrambled eggs prepared by Howard.

My wife and I planned a few days in Devonport during our trip to NZ and wanted somewhere to stay. She thought Admirals Landing looked good and helped by the tripadvisor reports, we booked a month ago. We stayed there last week (Feb 2015). We travelled by ferry from Auckland city and Admirals Landing is literally a 2 minute walk... More

The location could not be better, on the waterfront steps from the ferries, close to shopping and scenic walks. The room was very comfortable, quiet and we slept well. The bathrooms are wonderful with a bidet and beautiful showe and bathtub. Their is a supply of fruits to snack on plus wine beer and water in the fridge gratis. Joy... More

We stayed in the Paula Room for just 2 nights. Wish we could have stayed longer. The guest rooms are on the 2nd floor and are immaculate. The Paula room had an extremely comfortable bed and pillows and a delicious freshly made breakfast was cooked to order every morning. But the thing we enjoyed most were the hosts, Joy and... More

I stayed here one night before the Auckland Marathon - it was very close to the start line so an ideal location. I had the Waterfront room which was spotlessly clean, spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom was modern and well-designed. It had all the amenities I could possibly want and the price was very reasonable. Joy and Howard were... More

While its look blends in with the heritage buildings that surround it in old Devonport, the Admiral's Landing is actually a new house that offers well-appointed rooms in a superb location on the waterfront right across the street from the passenger ferry pier. Only about 20 years old, this home appears to be purpose-build to be a B&B. All three... More

My wife and I stayed at Howard and Joy's B&B for six nights in mid-May. Imagine visiting your favorite aunt and uncle for the first time in years!
