Quality Hotel Parnell
Ranked #19 of 66 Hotels in Auckland Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We only stayed here one night at the end of our NZ stay before flying home and loved this place. Value for money was excellent. The 2 bedroom apartment that could have slept 6 was terrific and the beds had electric blankets and rooms had electric heating which we fully appreciated. The views of Auckland skyline and harbor were amazing and the proximity to Parnell village was great. We had a car rental so the free parking was useful. The front desk staff were particularly helpful regarding restaurants in Parnell. Only caution is that the bath tub is deep and if you are unstable on your legs then you definitely want to sit on bath rim to get into it. Had a spa but we never had time to use it. Apparently the walk into the CBD is a good 20 mins.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 5th floor to get full benefit of the harbor views.

We stayed here for three nights and it was perfect for our requirements. Just needed the basic hotel room and it was clean, comfortable and very roomy. Best of all was the view - city scape and harbour. Thoroughly enjoyed laying on the bed and just staring at the view. The staff were faultless - always friendly, smiling and helpful. Location is great - walking distance to Parnell and the restaurants/cafes. Walking distance to city centre too if you wish but we had rental car on this trip. Plenty of off-street parking and easy hotel to find. Couldn't fault it.

We stayed here three nights and were pleasantly surprised by the view. Great views of the city scape and harbour. Service was faultless - all reception staff were always friendly and helpful right from initial email contact, to check in, enquiries during our stay and check out. We had standard hotel room which was very functional for our purposes - plenty of room, warm and comfortable. Plenty of off street free parking and easy to get in and out of from main road. Close enough to city centre and Parnell with all the eateries. Would definitely recommend and we'll definitely be back.

Stayed here for 3 days. The apartment unit is basically what you expect, just ordinary. The bathroom is clean, equipped with a washing machine and dryer.It served our purpose as it is close to nearby shops, parks, museum, university and restaurants. Parnell area is quite nice and lovely. I think the best thing that we had is the apartment has a city and harbour views. The parking space is free and you can have internet access for a small charge. However, I do noticed some not so clean utensils inside the kitchen drawers, maybe overlooked by the hotel management. Also, the apartment do need some refurbishment especially the kitchen cabinets.

No need to pay the huge dollars of the CBD hotels for a view and comfort.
Stayed in a two bedroom apartment, upper floors.
Loads of space, great sea and city view.
Plenty of room for the car, and very easy to get to.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floors, views get better as you rise

This hotel is a good option when staying in Auckland
Close to Parnel I mean a 10 minute walk to shops and a vast selection of cafes and restaurants
Has free parking this is a blessing as valet parking down town is anything from $30/40 per night
Is a short cab ride to Britomart and the Arena
Check in was easy as I did on-line direct with the hotel
The room was a good size kingsize bed clean tidy tea and coffee facilities
Great view over the Harbour
And a real treat just 5 mins walk down the road is a fantastic cafe The Rosehip>>>> Yummy
we wiil be back to the hotel on out next trip

Thankyou tripadvisor for pointing me to this superb stay option at Auckland. This surpassed my expectations in every which way possible.

I was here in october 2012 and possibly had one of the best service experiences possible with this place.

The rooms were fabulous. Location was great and staff beyond friendly.

The two bedroom apartments are excellent for families

Room Tip: Take higher floors with harbour view
