Mollies is a boutique hotel close to, but outside, the bustling central district. It's an easy 20-30 minute stroll to the harbor, or a 10 minute Uber ride. The hotel occupies an older, sprawling house that's been well cared for. Our suite opened onto a lovely garden, and the sitting room was enormous, so much that the baby grand piano... More

I'd love to give this property a glowing review like many others have, but was denied the opportunity. I booked online through Hotel.com on 26 Jan for 2 nights (11/12 March) and wanting to be sure of the booking, I had simultaneously checked availability on on Mollie's own booking site. Well, the booking was accepted with a confirmation email etc... More

You received a confirmation from Hotels.com/Booking.com not from Mollies Hotel as we never received your booking. Your issue is with with an online travel agent. You say Booking.com offered to reimburse you and they would never do that if they weren't in the wrong, It's a shame Booking.com didn't explain this to you and you chose to write a scathing... More

This hotel was simply amazing - now one of our top two favorites in the world. The service is impeccable, the rooms are amazing, the location is super convenient, and the food is excellent. It is a splurge, but it is so worth it.

My husband and I stayed at Mollies for two nights at the start of our New Zealand vacation and every moment of our stay was wonderful! Bernadette and Steve couldn't have been nicer or more professional, as was every member of the staff. After we arrived early in the morning, our bags were whisked away and we sat in the... More

It's such as shame this exquisite hotel is reverting to a private residence, it's truly fantastic. My wife and I revisited to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary, and met with the current management team of Steve and Bernadette. Wonderful ,warm friendly service, outstanding food and setting, hard to beat,worth looking for wherever this team resurfaces.

Our hosts are gracious and accommodating, our room is spacious and comfortable with a great view of Auckland Harbor But sadly Mollies will be closing because someone bought the property to revert it to a private home. Our innkeepers will take some time off and regroup, hopefully they will find another location.

Everything about Mollies is perfect, from the understated elegance of the rooms, to the exceptional five star plus service you will get from the staff, to it's central but stunning location.

My husband and I had a 24-hour layover in Auckland and decided to treat ourselves to Mollies. What a great decision! First, we were upgraded to a suite, which was lovely—beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable; hard to leave! The hotel service was superb. It's an easy walk to Ponsonby, along the water to downtown, etc—though the hotel is in a quiet... More
