This charming B&B is in a quiet neighbourhood but quite discreet and as a result it is quite difficult to find but worth it when you get there. Very comfortable stay,and we treated as treasured guesta with a very good breakfast. We had the use of our own sitting room and the use of the pool and tennis court in... More

We had a wonderful say at the Consulate. Our room was spacious but a bit warm. You can't open the windows very much to create a draft so it did not cool off very much at night. The bathroom is very large but I wonder if you have to share it when there are other guests!?? You have your own... More

What delightfully friendly people. We were thoroughly welcomed. Home from home, such a beautiful house. We would highly recommend. It's in a suburb 15 minutes out of the city with a beautiful walk down to the beach and a great selection of restaurants nearby. Just so relaxing and a tennis court and pool to boot!

We just spent an extremely comfortable night in the Royal room of this charming home. After a long flight we appreciated the champagne and cheese plate served in the elegant lounge where we met another couple from Europe. David and Averill were welcoming hosts and cooked a superb breakfast the following morning. A great location for us as we had... More

A great location for our recent stay. David and Averill were very considerate hosts, serving champagne and a cheese board on arrival and then leaving us to it while we watched tv in the lounge room. We appreciated being able to make hot chocolates in the evening before heading up to bed. We had a comfortable sleep in an enormous... More

We stayed in several B&Bs in New Zealand and we were really excited when we booked The Consulate, especially since we love to play tennis. From the beginning we ran into issues. Money was asked for upfront months in advance of our travel dates. They do not take credit cards, so the only way that we could get money there... More

David A, Manager at The Consulate Luxury Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

We find the above criticisms from this American woman very concerning and unfounded, as shown by all of our previous feedback. There was no complaint from this woman before she arrived, while she was here, or as she left, so this review was a shock. All of our previous reviews have averaged 9.8 out of 10. This couples stay must... More

The Consulate is well located near the cafés of St Heliers. The city is only a short bus trip away. The Consulate makes a very comfortable Auckland base. It is quiet, luxurious and Averill and David are helpful and considerate hosts. We would certainly stay there again.

We stayed at The Consulate for 2 nights on the 26 & 27 April. We loved this beautiful property. Our hosts David and Averill were most hospitable and provided lovely breakfasts. The house is absolutely gorgeous and we had the best sleep in the most comfortable king bed in the blue room of our NZ holiday. We highly recommend staying... More

What a great choice to kick off our NZ trip. Thanks Averill and David for making us so welcome in the very delightful Consulate. The welcoming champers and cheeseboard were a great start and we wished we could have stayed longer than just the one night to fully enjoy the experience. Your suggestion of dinner in the local village was... More
