“Superb”
Reviewed December 5, 2007

My wife and I were collected by Bart at the airport and taken to the B&B (in only 20 mins or so) which is located in the lovely Parnell area. The B&B is a stunning appartment with 3 double rooms, a communal lounge/breakfasting area with free internet access. The place itself is a very high standard, plenty of space in the bathroom, walk-in-wardrobe and bedroom. There is also underground parking and a swimming pool (too cold for us). There was an excellent choice for breakfast and I can recommend the bacon and pancakes! Bart and Therese were lovely hosts and couldnt do enough for us. They gave us recomendations on where to go and where to eat. I would recommend this as THE place to stay while in Auckland. Best wishes and thanks for making our stay so special. Will and Katie, Edinburgh, UK.

We stayed at the Ascott Parnell to start our 2 week trip in New Zealand. Put simply, Bart and Therese were fantastic hosts and by themselves made the stay terrific. Bart is a blast to chat with and has tons of information about things to do in the area and is very helpful in figuring out the best way to get there.

The B&B itself is in a newer building (a flat that is part of a larger
structure). We stayed in the largest room and it's a really nicely appointed, nice bed, decent view, luggage room, heated bathroom floors, all the nice stuff.

All I can say is that staying here was a terrific experience and set a standard that was tough to meet during the rest of our trip.

Hi

We had two days in Auckland; firstly the position of the Ascot Parnell was very good, as we left our hire car in the basement car park. The Parnell area around has great restaurants and good bus services to the city centre. Our accommodation was excellent and our hosts could not do enough for us. Therese and Bart have been in this business for a long time and have put together a great package in their B&B. Highly recommended!

This bed and breakfast is located in a modern building, and consists of three rooms of varying sizes. Two are two-room suites (and one has a sofa bed), the third (and best) is only one room but has a king-sized bed , a HUGE walk-in closet and a large sepaate tub in the bathroom.

Breakfasts are served in a common room, and are made to order by the hosts. The Belgian pancakes and mushroom/tomato omelettes are recommended. This room also has a television, stereo, computer with Internet access, sofas, and tea and coffee-making facilities (other drinks for purchase).

The property is located a short walk away from the Parnell district, which has lots of restaurants, cafes, and shops. It's also walking distance to the Auckland Domain (housing the National Museum and Winter Gardens) and a nearby rose garden. The Link bus stops nearby as well, for easy transportation into the downtown district.

The hosts are very friendly, and will provide transportation to and from the airport (cheaper than a taxi). They also have loads of stories, and knowledge about the local places to see and things to do.

The best B&B in New Zealand. We traveled all the North and South Islands and Ascot Parnell can't be beat. Be sure to have Bart pick you up at the airport. Great Value!!

This was our first stay in a B & B as we usually choose to stay in a hotel but we could not have made a better choice.We stayed in the Harbour view Suite for four days which is more like a mini apartment rather than a bedroom.The room was beautifully furnished and the bathroom was fabulous.The views from the room and from the guest lounge balcony were superb and due to the position of the B & B there is no noise.Bart & Therese were the most wonderful hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them.The breakfasts were wonderful with the freshest of food beautifully presented.
Parnell is a very nice part of the city and has a great selection of restaurants to choose from.It is also very easy to get into the city either by foot or by bus from a nearby bust stop.
We would highly recommend a stay at this B & B .We arrived as guests and left as friends all thanks to Bart & Therese.
