“almost family (from Flanders, Belgium)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Trees and Bart are wonderful hosts, they made us feel at home during our 5 days stay in Auckland. They are very helpful hosts.
I am a wheelchair user and experienced no problems at all during our stay in their beautiful B&B. It is very luxurious and spotless clean.
Breakfast is just like a 5star hotel. Parnell area is nice to stay with excellent bus transportation into city center.
We recommend their B&B.

Room Tip: all 3 suites are marvelous especially the one with harbour view

Bart & Therese are a very special couple, who are gifted in hospitality and sharing their home. They made us feel very welcome and were very supportive, ensuring we knew the best restaurants, travel options and other tips. Bart was concerned for our welfare making us country bumpkins feel safe in the big city. Breakfasts were divine, the standard was as good as a five star hotel. We had many stimulating conversations with both Bart & Therese and the other guests. The dogs were lovely and added special character to the stay for us as animal lovers. We had a really wonderful time and would love to return.

Lovely, spotless B&B in the Parnell district. Bart and Therese are a great, quirky couple that made us feel at home during our first two days in New Zealand. Their place is immaculately clean, with great views, a breakfast menu better than a restaurant, and super helpful hosts. Bart gave us his detailed map of the area, pointed out great sites, picnic spots, and recommended a delicious dinner place.
We unexpectedly arrived quite early (7am) and Bart offered to make us breakfast and they accommodated our bags until we were able to check into our room. The dogs are peaceful and friendly. Garage parking, internet, walking distance to a major shopping/dining road, and close to bus link are other great perks. Highly recommend!

Having previously stayed in a hotel in Downtown Auckland, this time we decided to stay within a short and inexpensive bus ride from the city centre.

Our hosts, Therese & Bart could not have been more accommodating. We had a late flight back to the UK (01.00AM) and Bart & Therese agreed a day room fee with us so that we could keep our room until we left at 22.00hours. This was invaluable and I know some of the large hotels in the city are not as flexible and customer focused.

Our room overlooked the harbour and the city and yet it was so quiet. You couldn't even hear the traffic. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The wardrobe..... enormous, could have easily been another bedroom it was so large.

The location is well placed for local restaurants, some of which are in Trip Advisers Top 10 best places to eat.

Overall a wonderful end to our trip

After spending close to 14 days trekking around the North and South Island in a motorhome, we stayed at Ascot for the last 6 days of our NZ holiday. Bart and Therese are the best as we found them both to be gracious, warm, funny, considerate and best of all genuine. This boutique B&B is exactly what we wanted and Ascot exceeded our expectations. While I must say we missed the breakfast sessions a few times (sorry Bart, had a few late nights ) the preparation, choice, quality and conversation was top notch. Our room ( harbor view) was perfect for our needs, room to spread out while not feeling lost. I highly recommend Ascot Parnell to a traveller who expects the finer things in life as Bart and Therese share the same qualities.. Deidre and I had such fun in our time with you both and you can expect to see us again when we return to Auckland. Note: Question to B & T ..... since I missed the Oscars hopefully we had some additional Oscar winners that were not announced - LOL

Staying at Ascot Parnell for three nights was unquestionably the best B and B experience I've had. We we're clearly charmed by our gracious hosts, Bart and Therese. The accommodations were excellent - very comfortable. The breakfasts were exceptional with many options. The location in the small village of Parnell was perfect - with some excellent neighborhood restaurants nearby - and very accessible to central Auckland. There is a spacious living area available to guests as well as a large veranda which overlooks the city of Auckland. I'm hopeful that we will return to Auckland someday and we will look forward to enjoying Bart and Therese's company again in this spectacular B and B.

What we found upon check-in was a lovely European style boutique hotel experience which exceeded any and all expectations. The owners, Bart and Therese, run a meticulous service at all levels; always putting their guests first in every way. Our suite was spotless, the layout well thought out, the breakfasts amazing,
and all done with smiles . When we are in auckland again, we will look no further.
