This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at Mollies. It is a beautiful property located within walking distance of Ponsonby, the Harbourside and the city itself. The rooms, the food and the service are all outstanding. The hosts Stephen and Bernadette are a model of peace and calm, nothing is too much trouble. We really love... More

We stayed at Mollies in May 2011. Everything about this place was perfect! The house, the room, the restaurant, the staff... Coming from Canada New Zealand if so far away, but we hope to be able to go back one day, not only for Mollies... but almost :-)

This small boutique hotel makes one feel like they are the guests of Steve and Bernadette who run the hotel. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere of the hotel eclectic and charming. Our suite had a living room, kitchenette and bedroom with doors that opened to a balcony. The balcony overlooked the harbour in Auckland. In addition, you... More

Small, intimate hotel with exceptionally nice people running it! The breakfast was delicious. The room was large and comfortable with a balcony overlooking the garden. We stayed two nights and loved every minute. It is easy walking distance to many restaurants.

On arrival met curbside by the staff who already were expecting my arrival and escorted to a lovely suite with views of the bay and downtown. This hotel was originally built as a residence for the mayor of Auckland in the late 1800's and has been lovingly restored to a true destination hotel. Facile elegance that combines old world architecture... More

We stayed 3 nights at Mollies and loved every minute of it. We had read the reviews and had been told by lots of NZ friends that this was a great place to stay and it did not disappoint. Fantastic location in easy walking distance of the great bars and shops of Ponsonby. Rooms are lovely and large with a... More

When planning our first trip to New Zealand (which took some time to do) I kept being drawn to a little hotel called Mollies in Auckland. So it was, that we would spend 2 days being looked after by a number of very special people. Having been in the hotel business for many years myself, I believe that, in hotel... More

excellent hotel with really cool, home-ly rooms. We had a room with an upstairs bedroom, and one of those beds which pulls out of the wall (Room 8). Our balcony was great with partial views of the bay / ocean and had bay windows which allowed us to open up the balcony to the remainder of the downstairs rooms. The... More

Our three weeks motorbike holiday through New Zealand we had planned with the assistance of Tripadviser. We picked our daily distances what we wanted to drive and choose a place to sleep or a restaurant via the reviews of Tripadviser. The last few nights we had chosen Mollies in Auckland. This was a good choice which we can recommend highly... More
