“Good value, good location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2009

After reading the reviews here, we booked here. It was just as expected - simple, well located, clean and reasonable value for money.

My wife and I initially booked to stay for 2 nights but were so impressed with Barrycourt that we stayed for a week. It is an excellent location being within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants in Parnell and 10 minutes bus ride from the central city. It also has its own restaurant which we found very good. Our room which had a great harbour view was very generous inside and had just been totally refurbished. We had a kitchen which, like the room. and bathroom was well appointed and spotlessly clean. The staff without exception, were all courteous and service exceptional.

Spacious apartment, warm and bright, everything you need in the unit.
Really appreciate the bathroom heater and the new overhead heaters installed since our previous visit.
Friendly welcoming staff, great location for Vector Arena and central city, with easy access to outer suburbs.
Usually plenty of parking. Attached cafe is great for breakfast.
Overall makes for a pleasent stay in Auckland.

Barrycourt in accessible and elegant Parnell is a must, the hotel rooms are very clean, wonderful views of the bay (on the fourth floor). The staff both at the counter and the restaurant was always friendly and accommodating, remarkable Manish always professional and friendly, one may think that hotel culture was gone through the window, but Barrycourt proved me wrong. Auckland is a great place to visit and the hotel is a good place to go home to at the end of the night or morning (if you are out late)..

The restaurant offers continental breakfast or cooked breakfast (ham, eggs, and so on) My only bad experience was "soup of the day" which actually from a can heated up in a microwave. Do not know if this everyday or the cook had a bad day. The rest of the food was good.

We (a group of seven all living overseas) stayed here for a total of six nights in July hiring out two of the two bedroom apartments on the top floor. Each one was well set out, completely self sufficient and the bath/shower facilities were outstanding (for what is very reasonably priced accommodation). We all enjoyed our stay particularly being able to congregate in either living room with expansive views out over the harbour to the island with the volcano on it. We were constantly pestering the staff for information or favours and they were top notch, really professional and personable. Totally happy across the board. The furthest we had to park from the lobby entrance was about 20-30 metres all week, and the rental car was parked up off the street and free of charge. Also enjoyed a few early morning walks around the domain, rose gardens and the bays just over the hill - great spot. Town was only a 5 minute drive away, but we ended up spending a fair bit of time in Parnell.

Reasonably priced accommodation in a convenient location. We had a good deal for 2 nights in a room with a balcony overlooking the bay. The room was spotlessly clean, the shower was hot and powerful, the laundry room downstairs was very useful, the staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were excellent. What more could you ask for? P.S. The electric blankets were a nice bonus.

  • Liked — Cleanliness, convenience.
  • Disliked — Dated decor.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2008

The place is great value for money in a city like Auckland. The rooms are basic but clean and well serviced.

The staff is helpful and friendly. The good thing is that the reception is open 24 hrs so for us chekcing in at midnight after a long international flight was smooth and easy.

Locationwise its near to the city centre. Although Parnell, the place where it is located is a nice area in itself. We didnt try the food so can't comment.

Overall great value for money and good place for a short stay.
