“Great location and price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012 via mobile

We recently stayed in a one bedroom apartment for three nights with our infant daughter. The location in ponsonby is very convenient for public transport and restaurants, and the secure parking is fine.
Room was great for our needs, with a washing machine and dryer and nice little kitchen. My only complaint (and it was more annoying for us than most, I suppose) is that the door between the bedroom and living room could only be closed after we rearranged the furniture a bit! The bedroom is really too small for the bed and bedside tables.

Quest Ponsonby was comfortable and clean. A little on the small side, but very reasonable nontheless. I arrived from a late flight and my keys were left out for me so there were no problems there. My only complaint is that my room was facing the road and it was quite noisy. So if your a light sleeper I'd ask for a room on the other side.

Room Tip: Away from the rmain oad

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

We stayed at the Quest Ponsonby for our first night in NZ and found everything just perfect. As we were arriving afterhours, they'd left an envelope with our keys and instructions at reception. The unit was spotlessly clean and the bed comfortable. Though not huge it was just right for a short stay, and we loved the feeling of independence and privacy. The proximity to lots of restaurants was a bonus, so having parked our rental car securely downstairs, we were able to walk everywhere easily. Our room was also surprisingly quiet (3rd floor facing west away from main road). A really nice start to our holiday.

We were 5 people in a suite of 2 rooms and a living room. One room was a bit tight with no drawers (only hanging space) and no TV (the kids room had that!) but the living space and the bathroom were speacious, very clean and well equipped. Service was exceptional: we had encountered an issue with their Internet provider (our mistake), and they did their utmost to solve it. Location in Ponsonby is great near shops and restaurants. A very nice experience overall.

The Quest Ponsonby is a good location if heading in from the airport and don't want to get caught up in the city traffic hussle and bussle. The reception hours are restrictive so make sure you get there in time, or make other arrangements. Parking is very limited so let them know well beforehand. Close to restaurants and cafes for breakfast and dinner.

I have stayed here (& the new Market property) a few times, Location great ,Studios are "OK", Air Con hasn't worked on a couple of stays. Showing signs of age/neglect (My room had a soap/shampoo holder in the shower completely broken) Staff make a lot of noise in the hall ways, and I even had to step over one sitting on the floor when I left my room! Lifts have cheap laminated signs everywhere re parking rules, reception hours, restaurant signs etc, just needs some TLC and it could be great as price is good for the location Although, the New Market property is more expensive and higher star rating but the Posonby property could learn a few thing from the New Market operator.
