“Great "village" location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

We had an extended stay here and settled in to both the accomodation and the Albany Village. The two bedroom with balcony offered light spacious acommodation with a great view over the valley. We had all we needed and we made good use of the local knowledge of the owner/operator Jim for whom nothing seemed too hard.
Friendly service and great comfrotable accommodation.

We stayed 6 nights at Albany Quest, right after we stayed in a 5 stars hotel in Auckland city and frankly, the room condition of Quest can match 5 stars hotel. We were impressed with the cleanliness, amenities and location (to Albany Mega Centre and Westfield) of this apartment. We felt like we are back at home with all electronics equipments and full cooking facilities while holiday. Quest is situated conveniently within the Albany Village with good tasty cafe and asian food nearby.
We expressed our interest to return for a bigger room with my daughter in the next few months and Jim gladly showed us to view a 1 bedroom apartment as all other 2 bedrooms were occupied.

We had a group booking and the stay was faultless. Jim is an excellent host and made the difference with excellent service, support and assistance. Nothing was too much trouble and his knowledge and experience of the areas and wealth of contacts made the trip a great experience.
I would recommend Quest Albany to anyone with great quality rooms and fit out with great options for food and drink on a charge back basis.
Albany bakery and cafe was a favourite stop-off with a great selection.
Thank you again Jim.

Stayed with a friend in a 2- bedroomed apartment on our "ladies nite out". Quest Albany was a great choice as it was just about 30 minutes drive from the city and the apartment was spacious. It was comfortable, clean with fully equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms and even a huge balcony. I particularly loved the shower- very good pressure.There are variety of cafes and restaurants within walking distance and we went to one for dinner and it was great.
Staff was very pleasant and helpful.Will definitely go back.

I stayed at Quest Albany over the week-end & found the accomodation second to none.
The 2-bedroomed apartment was spacious, clean and well furnished. Jim the Owner/Manager was an abosolute delight and recommended a great restaurant nearby, where we spent a very pleasant evening. We were also able to browse the Saturday morning market next to the hotel. Would definitely recommend.

Judging by the location, this is more a business hotel than a tourist's choice. We chose this place as accommodations in central Auckland we're full for the Rugby World Cup. I have to say the place was immaculate, brand spanking new and very well appointed with good use of space. It's highly automated with minimum staff and no restaurant/bar, but that does not matter as there are plenty of decent places very nearby. Comfort level is high, but at the price we paid, I might have wanted a bath in there. The price, considering the price of accommodation in Auckland for the rugby was actually not bad and it was near enough to good transport infrastructure. Now onto the one thing that makes this place stand out in a sea of homogeneous NZ business hotels - Jim.
Jim is owner/manager and probably the most helpful, pleasant and professional person I met in all of new Zealand. It's a person like this - who cares, and wants to help anyway he can, even if it's not his problem, that makes Albany a fantastic place to stay. Jim gets a 6 out of 5 rating from me. The property get's a 4 out of 5. So all round a 5 out of 5. Owner management makes all the difference here
