We've just spent 3 very happy nights at Sunderland House and didn't want to leave. We were given a really warm welcome from Donald and Kathy which made us feel immediately at home and this feeling continued throughout our stay. Donald had already advised us that a car wasn't really necessary as the location is ideal, being a few minutes walk away from a bus service that takes you into the city. He and Kathy are a mine of information about what to do and where to go, local knowledge like theirs is invaluable when you're new to a city. Our room was beautifully decorated and comfortable, a testament to Donald's design skills. Many other reviews mention his legendary breakfasts, well they're not exaggerating. The fruit platter is a joy whilst intake of the homemade bread and muffins has to be rationed due to them being so moreish. Should we come to Auckland again, we would not consider staying anywhere else in the city.
