Great location, friendly staff and beautiful clean character accomodation. Will stay again and again. Even with three young children we felt welcomed and could relax while the kids ran around the gated garden! Over the road from one of the best coffee shops in ponsenby and a stones throw from a fantastic gourmet independent grocery store and yards away from... More

I spent a few nights at Ponsonby Manor in early March, 2014. Everything was spot on - great room and facilities, friendly and efficient service, in a fantastic part of Auckland! A great and welcome change-up from the boring routine of big hotels. Highly recommended!

We spent a week in late February at Ponsonby Manor and we instantly felt very welcome. The day we arrived there was a parade on Ponsonby Road and we watched it from the balcony having some drinks and appetizers, got to know the other guests and just had a fabulous night. Our room (the chapel room) was small but very... More

Thank you for your kind words. the front verandah here at Ponsonby Manor certainly made a great viewing platform for the parade and it was fun to be able to share a Ponsonby 'event' with our guests. We will do it again next time ! More

When we wanted to move to New Zealand for the first time (and hopefully permanently) we were very concerned about our first accommodation in a country we have never been. So I started to search and found Red Monkey Travelers Lodge a good place to stay. So I booked for a month for me and my wife. A week later... More

Second stay here, the staff are wonderfully welcoming, the lodge pristine. Fresh flowers, lovely bedding, awesome pillows. Wonderful place to stay - home away from home. The lcoation could not be better and yet quiet and peaceful, the view over the city lovely

My experience at Ponsonby Manor was by far met with the most hospitality that I have experienced traveling to date. We contacted the Manor in an emergency and they accommodated us on the spot, quickly, efficiently and with extreme understanding as to our situation. After staying for 3 nights, our accommodations elsewhere for the following days yet again fell through!... More

Fabulous heritage house, immaculately restored as a guest house. Rooms are light , airy and very comfortable. There is very good attention to detail too, even down to fresh cut flowers changed daily on the hall stand. The guest house is very well located too. Plenty of cafes , restaurants and bars all within walking distance along Ponsonby Road. The... More

I found this on Agoda.com and it is absolutely a diamond in the rough. Great location, great views, great value and great place. Built in 1894 in the very posh and fashionable Ponsonby area of Auckland with a fantastic view of the city and easily accessed by public transportation or a nice walk to downtown. I found the rooms very... More

We have been staying at the manor in two seperate periods in Dec '13 and Jan '14. Both stays has been a pleasure. The manor has clean and comfy rooms and really nice beds. Only 10 min with bus to the CBD. The two owners are very friendly, helpful and accommodating of any requests. The guests are a good mix... More
