Never having visited Ponsonby and with a hire car we wanted somewhere close to the city with easy parking... not only did we get this but the room although a little small in the bathroom area was very clean and well presented. The ambience of the Manor House could only be topped by the helpfulness of Jill the Manager who... More

This place is a must if you stay in Auckland. Try to get the penthouse (most magnificent view of Auckland), otherwise the other rooms are comfortable as well. We stayed 4 nights at the Penthouse to start our NZ holiday and came back for the last two nights, before returning to Amsterdam. Jill is an excellent host and we really... More

The Ponsonby Manor is truly a delight to stay in. It is beautifully restored and furnished throughout, giving the feel that you have entered a really nice home in the heart of Ponsonby. The house has the feeling of history and stability, yet all the quality aspects of a great hotel. I had a kitchenette, ensuite, sofa, desk and beautiful... More

Really nice place! Top Service, very calm and friendly environment! The room was pretty clean and the common kitchen as well. And a very nice garden to do a barbecue! Close to the city. 15 minutes walk or 5 minutes by bus. Ponsonby is a very nice citypart!

I cannot fault our stay at the Ponsonby Manor. We stayed in the verandah room, with the verandah the perfect place to sit, relax and take in the spectacular view over Auckland city. It's a welcoming place to be - due to not only the presentation of the property but those who manage it. Our room had everything we needed... More

She takes great care about all the important concerns and conveniences for her guest. She makes you feel so welcome and is always there if you need help or information. The great and cheerful conversations with her... More
