This place is disgusting, they don't clean the rooms and the owner Peter is the worst host you have ever met in your entire life, I am not exaggerating, such a rude person to guests. This ace should not even be allowed to be accommodation for the public.

We booked a nights accommodation this week based on the photos on their website. A total misrepresentation. On arrival, we asked to inspect the room ( one above office). Filthy, building falling down, a health and safety risk. Owner one of the rudest people we have met in tourism industry. This would have to be the worst accommodation we have... More

Very disappointing. Room filthy, dusty and very outdated. TV didn't work. Property being worked on currently. Great location it's only positive. Owner very welcoming but the room itself was poorly set up. Paid extra for a extra bed, but there was already a fold down bed in the room? Not a good price, considering the other places available. Shower and... More

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

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.
