Stayed last two nights, in room 8 upstairs- one of the smallest and cheapest rooms available. Yes, small, but clean and plenty of room to walk around the bed, although recently renovated bathroom was tiny with a tiny & cute, only just usable wash basin (wobbly tap), and a showerhead which was very miserly. Next time we will pay $20... More

We picked this place out of the AA Guide because of its location, and we were not disappointed. Right in the heart of Parnell Village, a reasonable walk to central Auckland and the waterfront, and on the bus route for the inner and outer link (we tried it both ways). Many cafes and restaurants to choose from, as well as... More

Stayed here two nights last week. The place smells of chlorine but rooms are clean though very tired. Bed was very average and hard. All toiletries were supplied and towels were good. It is a bit like a dorm as the rooms are all off a central hallway which could be noisey. Walk across the road and you are in... More

We stayed for one night in room 7, it was decorated very nicely (lamp was very fancy!) and it was very cozy. We checked in late at night and everything was ready for us. Was a little worried when we saw the comment on the noise, but we didn't experience any noise. Overall a lovely stay, location is superb. The... More

"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
