“not only for Bavarians!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2009

For us Germans it is very nice to travel to an English-speaking country and be received by German speakers (because this is something you have to get used to in New Zealand!! Some kiwis asked us if there were any Germans left in Germany since they all seem to be working or travelling in New Zealand).
The area of Mt Eden is well outside town, but this is no minus. It is very quiet and you can walk around the area trying to overcome jetlag. We didn't have a car, which was no problem, because the buses leave just 5 minutes from the b&b and get you into the city centre in 20 minutes (and you don't need to worry about parking!!)
The rooms are very nice and bright, breakfast is excellent (with cheese! you don't get this often in NZ), the hosts and employees are very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Great little place situated in Mount Eden, the hosts are really helpful and can advice on all local attractions and how to get to the city- a short walk to the end of the road for a direct bus into the city (10 mins at most away).
Breakfast is nothing flash- help yourself to cereal, toast and fruit and eggs and sausage is cooked on request but its really all you need.

Really clean and well presented. I would happily recommend this to anyone.

We stayed at the Bavaria Bed & Breakfast for a short stay after the school holidays in July. I was impressed with the friendly welcome and loved the clean rooms and nice atmosphere. The location is close to the city and there are heaps of really good little shops within walking distance.

First time ever in New Zealand. Warm and friendly welcome, nice and clean room and good talk with host. Very helpful with planning our stay in Auckland and the trip to South Island. Good talk with other guests over great breakfast. Plenty of tips, better than any written travel guide book. Great location, phantastic view from Mt Eden, 10 minutes walk away, good restaurants and cafés close by. Better than any inner city hotel.

Bavaria Bed and Breakfast is a quiet, unpretentious hotel, in a location close to the city centre and attractions- a short cheap bus ride. Just down or up the road in walking distance are all the facilities one needs. Great restaurants, bars, supermarkets.
However, after my business day was done, I need not go out again. The environment in the Bavaria is so friendly and accommodating. The Bavaria has a lovely light lounge for guests and I was immediately made at ease by the wonderful owner, Ulrike. Ulrike and Rudi, the hosts, are so friendly and helpful, that you are ,without knowing, drawn into conversation with other guests . This is wonderful for the solo traveller.

The service is fantastic - great breakfasts. The rooms are clean and have everything that one needs. Fantastic value for your money.

Understated, unpretentious, undoubtably great quality, service and clealiness. The customer obviously comes first in this establishment.

Bavaria Bed and Breakfast Hotel was home away from home.
Great shower heat and pressure.
Substantial breakfast to start my working day in the city.
Warmly furnished livingroom, comfotable furniture for television viewing or to settle down with the daily paper and a cuppa.
The staff are friendly and helpful and all my needs were attended to.
I live in the countryside on the coast and coming to the 'Big Smoke' is daunting to me.
I was so happy to arrive and stay in such delightful villa. I felt safe.

Nice and quiet, with shops, banks etc at bottom of road (on Dominion road). Mt Eden shops about ten minutes' walk away.
Would stay here again.
