My husband and I had travelled from the UK and due to flight delays missed our internal flight. Tourist office in Auckland airport booked this for us at a cost of £105. It was filthy, smelly and furniture was antiquated. It should not be on a tourist office list of accommodation! The carpets were sticky, stained and obviously not cleaned... More

I live in Wellington and was up in Auckland visiting family and needed to get away fro a night or two if you know what I mean.... Was keen to shop Parnell so whilst in the village I came across two similar priced and looking short stays and settled on Parnell City Lodge. Awesome rates, great hosts and to top... More

We just moved back from Christchurch and needed a short term option on a fully furnished apartment close to town and by pure accident came across this on the way to dinner in Parnell. Great hosts, clean rooms and cheap as chips for what you get. Top of Parnell so real close to all the fancy restaurant's and pubs.

This was the grottiest place I've seen in a long time. Filthy sheets and pillowcases. Filthy towels. Flannel had big brown marks on it. Yuk !! The floor had not been vacuumed and I'm assuming not a lot of other cleaning went on either. The owner was very creepy, leering at my teenage daughter, even touching her as he left... More

I believe the hotel has new owners, anyway I found it reasonable. It was in a perfect location to access bus transport to the city. The eateries close by were good, especially the "Coffee Club" restaurant, wonderful fish and chips. Easy to go to Newmarket shopping centre or to the railway. The hotel was adequate, but it did lack in... More

I wish I had read reviews before booking. This place was dirty. Furniture was old & tatty. Towels & sheets were stained & thin and as for the bathroom I don't know when it was last cleaned.There wasn't even any soap.The website doesn't represent the place at all. I was totally disappointed.

Have stayed at parnell lodge for 3 years and have had nothing but the best service. The location is perfect. And the price reflects all this. The current owners are trying very hard fix all the imperfections that they inherited and have made alot of progress. Bottom line a great place to be.

This place is terrible! Owner is rude, one of the rudest people I've ever met. Rooms are dusty, smelly, dirty sheets and not at all what you would picture from the outside. I asked for a refund and it was like getting blood out of a stone.

I have stayed at this accommodation of over 7 years on and off. The previous owners ran it down, the current owners are trying to get the place up to standard and are building and renovating. For a little while now this Accommodation has been under renovation and still is. I have stayed over and over at this Lodge because... More

This would be the worst accommodation in existence. Picture looks great with the write up promoting edwardian character. Didn't know edwardian character came with filth, dirty smells and questionable as to whether laundering of bedding had taken place. Had to remove the uncovered duvet inner on the bed that clearly looked to have adult stains on it. Ick! Pillowcases, sheets... More
