“Best place to start”
Reviewed November 29, 2008

This is a terrific place to begin a trip to New Zealand. Joy and Howard can give you info on anything you need to know. They also go out of their way to make you comfortable! A bath in their luxurious bathtub is not to be missed after a long flight into NZ. An absolutely premiere location and view. Very clean and comfortable. Convenient to everything but away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Auckland. We highly recommend Admiral's Landing.

A warmth of ambience and friendly atmosphere is felt when you stay at Admiral's Landing. Excellent facilities and close to all transport links. Spotlessly clean and a very fulfilling variety of breakfast is provided. A B&B that you will plan to return to!

Recently in NZ for business, a business collegue booked this B&B so I wasn't feeling too lonely whilst in NZ on my own.

The B&B is located on the coast directly across from the Devonport / Auckland Ferry Terminal - a short 15min trip into Auckland.

Joy and Howard treated me like a daughter - helping me find my way around the town and giving me a lot of information on the sites and how to get there.

I felt very welcome in their home and the facilities were exceptional. I had a very comfortable stay with many lovely memories.

If you are looking for somewhere that feels like home - the Admirals Landing is the place to stay!

I have just returned to Sydney having spent 4 days in Auckland, at Admirals Landing, a B and B in Devonport, Auckland. I was in a party of 5 adults, all staying at Admirals Landing. I have no hesitation in recommending this B and B, firstly because Devonport is a special part of Auckland, on the water and with a villagy atmosphere. It has excellent cafes, restaurants, bookshops. There is a short ferry ride to the CBD. Joy and Howard operate the B and B and go out of their way to ensure that their guests needs are met. They will gather information if it is not actually on their premises (eg best places for bird watching, making golf bookings etc) and are a very engaging couple.

We had a most enjoyable stay.

Our hosts, Joy and Howard, were very accomodating considering we arrived in the very early morning from America The room was comfortable and the shower was fantastic! That may sound like a simple thing but when you are travel weary it is wonderful to have hot water and pressure beating down on you. Perfectly located for walking the town of Devonport and Joy has a wealth of information on just about any topic you can imagine! This was a perfectly wonderful way to begin our New Zealand journey and I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone. Monique and Pee Wee

  • Liked — Very informative and friendly hosts, nice room and shower
  • Disliked — Main house very crowded so if home you were secluded to your room, no main area.

Howard and Joy are extremely gracious and welcoming. They are eager to share their knowledge and they are eager to help.
We chose to take the Airport Bus to the Ferry Terminal and then the Ferry to Devonport. Admirals Landing is a short walk across the carpark. We stayed 2 nights and found that we could easily explore Auckland using public transportation. Before leaving for the Bay of Islands, Joy offered to take us to the Avis office near
Devonport to pick up our rental car. In the evening, Howard & Joy asked us to join them on the patio and share some fine New Zealand wine before we headed out to dinner in Devonport.
Breakfast was excellent and you could either have it served in your room, on the patio, or in the comfort of the dining room.

After a long flight we were welcomed by Howard and Joy - they waited until 1am to meet us!
Ideal location - very easy to get the ferry into Auckland.
Devonport is a great place to stay with a good selection of restaurants etc but if you are planning to be in the area over Xmas time - care! nothing was open on Christmas Day night except the main hotel so think ahead.
