A well laid out apartment, with good kitchen facilities. Has Sky with some relevant channels. The main issue is to do with Internet access. Paid $10 for 1GB for 24 hours but could not access even for half an hour on one gadget. Initially we could not access at all. When contacted, received very arrogant service with the attitude that...

We have used Quest rooms for overnight stops elsewhere, although they are clearly aimed at a business market. This one was not as good as our previous experiences. The room was fine - spacious, well equipped, great bed. The location is great, ideal for Ponsonby restaurants and bars and a $2 bus ride to the city centre. However it was... More

I recently booked 6 nights and requested a room away from the road as we had our 11 week old son with us. Unbeknown to us, there was a massive construction site right out side our window. Its in the very early stages and won't be completed until 2016 sometime. Obviously there was no mention that this was taking place.... More

I'm currently staying here for a week. I like the size of the room and the fact that I have a balcony. However, I find the room a bit dirty (black hair in the shower,dirty shower, dirty whiteware, tiny bit of blood on the blanket, lots of dust everywhere etc..). Overall, the whole room needs a very good cleaning....you can... More

Our stay at the Quest was to avoid taxi fare or drink driving after a long dinner at our favourite restaurant in Ponsonby so we really only spent time in the room sleeping. This is an average property, no frills and our room had a view of a large pit where lots of construction was going on. So a good... More

I was staying here for two weeks and I felt really comfortable. Awesome beds, clean and tidy rooms. Excellent guest services from staff, so friendly and inviting. They took the extra mile to make me feel valued. I loved Quest Ponsonby! Thank you so much and I would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Stayed 2 nights while in Auckland Location right in the trendy suburb of Ponsonby. Room - Rather small for the price charged.. Hardly enough room to put 2 x suitcases. spent the 2 days stepping over them.. Clean - well almost- cleaners attention to detail lacked... bathroom door not clean.. edges - dirty. Otherwise ok.

The entire property is nice and tidy, the rooms are well appointed and very clean. Bathrooms are great, bed is really comfy. Only downside is the large construction going on next door and the associated noise. WiFi is also more expensive and slower than mobile data on phone!

Spent two nights here in a ground floor room with two king single beds. On arrival the beds were made as a King so had to get reception to sort the beds as we had requested two single beds. Big bathroom but nowhere to place personal items. Wheelchair access shower so all open with a shower curtain. The problem was... More

This was the second time we stayed here and we must have struck a bad room. The air conditioning was faulty and the bed was one of those two king singles pushed together and I always seemed to fall in the gap. But it is what it is, a bit tired but if you manage to get a good deal... More
