“Fantastic views over Auckland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

I booked on wotif for a one night stay I was early and my room was ready which was great. Very friendly receptionist, room very clean and comfortable. The views from my balcony were awesome, I was looking out towards the city and devonport. Price for the room special was a good bargain. The bed was a little hard but other than that no complaints.

but not really 4 star. The room I was in was spacious (room 304) with good lighting, desk, etc but tired bathroom and average towel quality and amenities. I would expect a mini bar in a 4 star place. The room was opposite the elevator which meant door clunking noise throughout the night. The walls are also very thin so you can hear neighbours having showers etc. The room had a nice balcony with great views to the sky tower. I was there for a meeting and the conference facilities across the car park are adequate if a little tired. My breakfast was excellent - I chose an a la carte omelette which was high quality. Reception staff were friendly and customer focused, so no complaints there.

Having driven past the Barrycourt (now called Quality Hotel Parnell) for many, many years and not stayed there, I finally had that opportunity recently and was pleasantly surprised.
The look from the outside hasn't changed in decades but the rooms have had a nice recent upgrade and were more than comfortable. The staff were really courteous and friendly and the onsite restaurant was pretty good ( but busy so a bit slow in getting meals out).
So close to the city (4 minute drive) and with ample free parking I will undoubtedly find myself staying here again in coming trips to the big smoke.

Room Tip: Stunning views across the city and harbour from floors 4 and 5

Stayed here one night in a two bedroom motel style unit with self catering ability (although we didn't use this facility), and great views of the city skyline from the bedrooms. Unit was clean, light, spacious and pleasantly decorated. It was comfortable and homely. The location is in a very good area close to Parnell shops and rose gardens. We opted for the continental breakfast at the restaurant in the morning and it was enjoyable with all the usual fare. There was also an a la carte menu available. The service at the restaurant and reception desk was friendly and efficient. All in all, a nice stay, and will return.

Super value for money place in Auckland. Not far at all from city centre. They have different kind of rooms, so look it up. We stayed in a suite which was nice, clean, spacious and a good view of Auckland. Oh and yes, super friendly receptionists.

We've just returned from two nights at the Quality Hotel Parnell. We stayed in a 2 bedroom balcony room on the 4th floor and had 4 adults+1 child+1 baby staying. View of the harbour was beautiful! Decor was a bit tired but clean and tidy. Bathroom was a bit cramped and it was tricky only having one bathroom for 4 adults. Cot provided for baby didn't have a lot of bedding included but we improvised.
However, the location was AMAZING. We easily walked to Vector Arena (about 15mins) and 2 min walk to Parnell Rise. Having free parking was fantastic (unusual in central Auckland!) and easy access from the car up the lift to the unit. The value for money was just great - other options I looked at were at least $100 per night more.
The service was polite and efficient. The cleaning staff were very helpful and moved their cart when it was in the way of our pram. They cleaned around the jumble of belongings strewn across our unit!!
Would happily return here and recommend to other families visiting Auckland.

We stayed here 3 days in a studio unit and 7 days in a superior studio. The regular studio is quite small while the delux one was very large and spacious. We had a full kitchen and a beautiful balcony and view of the ocean. They are renovating so things can only get better. The bathrooms need up dating and will be this year. The only difficulty is finding a level place to park and not under the trees as they give off a sap. It has great views because it is on a hill. They have a full restaurant on site. Staff were very helpful when I took ill and was hospitalized. Free parking was a bonus as was wifi

Room Tip: The higher up the better views
