“A superb B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

A superb B&B
We spent the first two nights of our visit to New Zealand at Mollies, the room was delightful and the hostess, Nastasjla (..call her Ms. Nice), was simply fantastic.
It is really more like a superb B&B than a hotel though since dinner is only offered two days a week, which did not work out very well for our second night since my wife did not feel very well, and we had decided to stay in for the evening.
It was suggested that we call out and have food delivered to the hotel; this proved to be problematic so we were offered a cheese plate, when we checked out we discovered that kindness cost $45.
The location is in a very nice quiet neighborhood but if you are interested in spending time in the city of Auckland it is less than ideal. When the weather is good, like it was on the first day of our stay, you can take a pleasant walk to the city, which will take you 30 to 40 minutes. If it is raining however it would not be pleasant and in any event you may not want to walk back to Mollies since it would be all up hill.
You can always take a taxi of course and the service is very prompt. Taxi’s in Auckland can only be found at a Taxi rank since they do not cruise the streets looking for customers; if you have a cell phone we found calling 003 3000 would get you a Taxi to where ever you were very quickly.

We had our wedding at Mollies over the weekend and we are so thrilled we had to write a review straight away. From the first day of planning with Mollies fantastic General Manager, Joanna there has not been one thing we would have changed.

Joanna is the true asset to this boutique hotel and her professionalism and graciousness filters down to her brilliant team from Nastajia through to the restaurant managers whose names have escaped me for now sorry. The food was exquisite, service was impeccable, the garden in full bloom, the wedding luncheon room stunning and as one of our overseas guests commented; "you could have been in any major city in the world as this venue would have not been out of place".

It would be one of Auckland's greatest losses if anything was to change at this hotel.

Room Tip: If your budget allows then choose a Suite - we had suite 1 which was so special and has a fabulous t...

Mollies was our first hotel we stayed at when we landed from our long haul out of Canada. We were thrilled by the reception we received to make us feel at home, with a fresh shower, followed by a great refreshment at the bar that felt like our living room. Nastajia was a bright big smile we encountered and she was quick to win us over! She assisted us with everything and anything, including offering suggestions that were non-intrusive.

We enjoyed numerous Posonby and Herve Bay restaurants that were all walking distance from the hotel. Tim was a great bartender and head waiter for us on one dining evening in the restaurant - excellent food and even better ambiance. Great candles and decor!

The suites were fabulous! We ended up going back to Mollies after our northern island tour, and had an even better suite - we didn't think that was possible. If you want to stay in a residential area with local restaurants, but enjoy five star service and upscale atmosphere of any large city, this is the place. Joanna, the general manager makes sure you are well looked after and has a skill for ensuring customer satisfaction. Something we both appreciated being the customer for a change.

Mollies is more a charming guest house than a small hotel. It is a classic beautiful house in one of the most upscale and quiet neighbourhoods, still half an hour walk to the sky tower and close to the ferries to Waiheke and to Auckand s fish market, an excellent place to go for the best oysters and seafoof lunch.The rooms at Mollies are spacious and beautiful and the service is outstanding: non intrusive, but warm, a delicate balance that is not easy to achieve. Our hostess, Nastasjia, was always there for anything we might need, always welcoming us with a smile. She is the one that adds to the place all the cheerfulness the whole city of Auckland lacks...while at the same time being really professional which is what to be expected in such an upscale place. It is a very relaxing place. New Zealand is one of the best places to eat, and so is Mollies Restaurant. The chilean chef, Octavio , and the rest of the kitchen team prepared the most delicious lamb, bread and desserts! And they have some of the best white wines of New Zealand included in their wine list. A la carte breakfast is also excellent. We really felt at home at Mollies, but as usual, the people working there, the staff, make all the difference. Without Nastasjia, Mollies would lack most of its exquisite personality and would just be just a nice house with some pictures and pieces of art displayed here and there.

Dined at Mollies in St Mary's Bay at the weekend. Mollies is a luxury boutique hotel seting you back around $1500 per night! Special $35 lunch menu, food was pretty good despite lots of chipped plates check out my full review on chefkevinblakeman.com

I have been to Auckland a few times and I always thought hotels in this city were not that special. Fortunately, now they have Mollies. This is a fantastic boutique hotel with a great location and superb service. From the moment you arrive you will find out this place is special. They really care about their guests. The rooms are really big and spacious and the decor is just incredible. I almost didn't want to leave my room. The library has plenty of books and magazines to read. The fire place in my room was that extra touch that made it super romantic. The views from the rooms are great as well. It happens to have a wonderful location, far away from the touristy part of Auckland in a residential area. Nearby there are nice stores and places to eat. The hotel's restaurant has superb food and the ambiance is perfect. There were probably about 300 candles at dinner time and live piano music. Breakfast is delicious and very well planned. I will stay at this fantastic hotel any time. The front desk people suggested great restaurants and were so friendly and helpful. The only small problem I had were some little ants in my bathroom but compare with the great experience I had that is not a big deal.
