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

I shouted my parent to stay here, and they loved it! The room was beautiful and clean with a perfect deck looking out towards the city! Wouldn't stop saying how perfect it was. They will most definitely be back, and we will both be recommending this spot to everyone! Thank you so much Jill.

I stayed for three weeks at the manor whilst on a study placement, it was complete luxury (especially compared to the previous hostel I stayed in in auckland).
