"Spectacularly underwhelmed" is the phrase that comes to mind. The experience was so less-than-desirable I don't know where to start. Our room was directly under the restaurant kitchen judging by the noise each night, bottles being tossed in the bins, people clomping about, loud discussions that bordered on arguments. The daily service, according to a sign above the kitchen sink,... More

This is an appalling business managed by an appalling man. We booked for two nights, confirmed in the morning. Arrived and were told they only had our room booked for one night!!! But there was another although totally unsuitable room available for the next night. Not at all impressed so we left. He phoned us at our home later, where... More

Stayed two weekends at The Parnell, once for a staff day, where we were fully catered for, another with my wife. Clean, nice rooms, free parking, central location - if you like walking, 20-30min to the city. The restaurant is nice. You don't hear noise from other rooms and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Good value, too.

Stayed at the Parnell Inn for 1 night. The standard studio room was quite small but perfectly fine for me on my own - comfy queen size bed. The room and ensuite were clean and tidy. Friendly helpful staff. Parnell Road is packed with eating places so plenty of choices for meals. And some interesting shops as well (which alas... More

Fantastic location - lots of lovely places to eat nearby and boutique shops; walking distance to the centre (30 mins) and very near the lovely Auckland Domain. Hotel itself is fairly basic and could do with a bit of updating, but it's clean, spacious and good value for money for the location.

We were very pleased to find such a nice room in this wonderful location. The room was clean and very adequate. A great benefit is the free off street parking as well. The location was great with so many bars, restaurants, shops and attractions within walking distance. It is very convenient to access public transport as well as the Hop... More

The location is perfect !! wonderful food places at parnell road. Its walkable from Via duct harbour. Good connectivity for buses as well. Only thing is there is no lift and quite a bit of stairs to get to the rooms or the parking lot as well.

Like most big cities, finding decent low cost lodging is a challenge. Parnell Inn offers a decent room at a reasonable price for Auckland. Sitting roughly in the middle of Parnell Road, the Inn has a great location for visiting the Auckland Museum, while the street is lined with great little shops and plenty of dining options. For the price,... More

The room was clean and tidy, and all and all, was good value for central Auckland. The downside was the bed, which was like sleeping on a concrete slab. It was extremely hard - might suit some people - but my wife and myself found it very uncomfortable. Other than that, the place was fine

We were very happy with the location, the manager gave us maps and tips to save money by using the buses that do a circuit of town rather than catch the hop on hop off tourist bus. The room was clean and the cafe at the front offers an excellent light dinner. There are shops galleries, souvenir shops and restaurants... More
