This a superb place to start your ho!liday!!! Great welcome from young Hugh who showed us to very comfortable room with superb view, made tea and offered map and info on the city. Everywhere you look there is colour and wacky art - my kind of place! Breakfasts equally colourful and quite delicious. Gardens for relaxing with cold beer or... More

We arrived after a long flight to Auckland. The bed and breakfast was a great place to start our holiday. Rooms were big, very clean and had plenty of character. Nice terrace at the back. And by far and away the largest choice for breakfast on our trip around the North Island. The bars and restaurants of Ponsonby were a... More

We felt like home in this hotel. In the morning after our first, very yummy breakfast (specially the egg dishes are superb) we got a city map of Auckland and lots of infos about the city. That is a very good service. The location of the hotel is very good, Ponsonby is a nice part of Auckland and the connections... More

This was our first visit to NZ and our first accommodation on the 3 week stay. We arrived in Auckland at 6 am, after a 14 hour flight from San Francisco. The B & B is located on a quiet residential side street, just a block from the shops, and restaurants on Ponsonby Rd. Our twin villa room, in the... More

staying at the Great Ponsonby Arthotel was lovely - the warm hospitality, all the little touches - like remembering guests names and details about them, providing useful tourist tips - all adds up to make this B&B something special. Not to mention the great breakfast. thanks for a wonderful couple of days....

The Ponsonby Arthotel was a great place to stay for some peace and quiet without sacrificing walkability. Our room was cosy and the flower garden was in full bloom, so opening the doors to our coffee porch led to our room being filled with incredible fragrance. The free breakfasts were cooked to order, the coffee was real (not instant), and... More

We stayed at the Great Ponsonby Arthotel twice, first upon our arrival in New Zealand, and again just before our departure. We know that we had found accommodating hosts when they let us check into our room at 7:00 am fully overcome by jet lag. We stumbled our way into a great breakfast, collapsed into a necessary nap, and then... More

The Great Ponsonby Art Hotel has got it all. We stayed in the Penthouse suite in the main Villa. The room was clean and beautifully presented, sitting on the balcony sipping gin in the afternoon sun was and added highlight. Sally and Gerry have created a fantastic space for visitors to Auckland. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Situated in an old style villa, sympathetically restored, and tucked away down a back St off the main Ponsonby Rd this BandB / hotel is a real find. I was greeted by a friendly but efficient young man who offered me a drink so I could recover from my drive through Auckland. My room was ready on time, which was... More
