“So good, we extended our stay”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

We had a two night stay at the beginning of our trip and returned for five nights at the end of trip. This is a busy smaller hotel with an excellent central location near the city. Good value for money in our opinion.

We were lucky enough to have rooms with a beautiful view over the city and harbour. Our rooms were large and had been recently redecorated. Beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were clean but average with shower over the bath (restrictions due to the age of hotel).. Self catering facilities were great for quick meals with our toddler granddaughter.. The best thing about the room was the couch and two armchairs to relax in. We experienced dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was of a very good standard - pricing comparable with many Auckland restaurants during our two week visit to New Zealand. Free Carparking was good most of the time, with overflow out onto Gladstone Road. Guest Laundry was a real bonus. Staff were always very friendly and helpful. There are various levels of accommodation to suit most budgets.

Nearby shopping is in Parnell, a tourist orientated shopping street, with Newmarket a five minute drive/bus ride down the road. A LINK Bus Service operates up Parnell Road every 10-15 mins during the day and completes a city circuit. This is a must to experience! A tourist bus to the Zoo, Kelly Tarltons Underwater World, MOTAT etc stops at the entrance of this hotel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 'stay-put' hotel to visit our daughter and granddaughter.

Quality Hotel Parnell has excellent views of Auckland and Waitemata Harbour.

The staff were good and the room was clean. The room was also large compared to what you might get elsewhere.

Would stay again here if in Parnell or the nearby area.

Quality Hotel Parnell is perfectly located, out of the noisy Auckland town centre, but close enough to be convenient to the waterfront, Parnell or the city’s many amenities. Parnell itself is beautiful and has some great shops, galleries and cafes – the Sunday market is amazing. We loved the large, comfortable rooms, great kitchen and bathroom facilities and spacious lounge for relaxing. Our room had a fantastic view of the city centre and out to the water – it was beautiful at night with the city lights on display. Training was important to us and we were right on the doorstep of the Parnell Pools complex, plus the beautiful waterfront bays for run training and bike rides. We couldn’t have asked for a better location and the great room service made for a lovely and hassle free stay.

We stayed here at short notice and were very impressed with the value! The rooms are basic and the furnishings are a little dated however its clean and has all you need. The location is hard to beat, the dining looked very basic, however Parnell has a number of excellent restaurants nearby.

Quality Hotel Parnell is centrally situated in Auckland. The rooms were excellent, and the staff obliging. The breakfasts were expensive as were the dinners quoted. We were a group of 35 people and we elected to self cater for breakfast by taking some plates an cutlery, and having cereals in our rooms. The tariff was reasonable considering the central city site

This was a "find" and worth the two nights stay. A great comfortable bed, room clean and bright, spacious including the bathroom and a restaurant on site. The view from the rooms with balcony are just lovely and nearby Parnell village with its trendy shops, galleries and restaurants is a 10 minute walk. It is relatively close to Auckland CBD and has free onsite parking. We found the hotel to be quiet and next visit will spend longer than 2 nights there.

Room Tip: A balcony room is worth an extra cost

Stayed here as a first stop from Australia to catch up with friends. Hotel was easy to find (by car) being on direct route from airport to city and convenient for our expected travels to the North the following day.

Top floor room had recently been renovated and was clean and tidy with all furniture and fittings in excellent condition. Access via open access a bit out of date and open to (bad) weather but functional. Room had a balcony which provided great views of the city and harbour.

Breakfast was provided in the restaurant and proved to be very enjoyable.

Extensive off-street car park on first-come, first-served basis which could mean a little walk in bad conditions but for us it was great. Although located on major thoroughfare this was of minor intrusion during the day and no noise at night (past 10 pm).

Room Tip: Pay a little more and select rooms on top floor with city views to get the best experience.
