Ascot Parnell Boutique Bed and Breakfast
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 24, 2013

We chose Ascot Parnell from the internet not knowing anything about Auckland or it's surrounding areas,The name just sounded right and inviting.What an amazing find.Bart met us at the airport.On arrival at the hotel he and Therese were so welcoming,not like a hotel really,after our long flight from England,we were made to feel so at home immediately.The breakfast was absolutely out of this world(French toast like you have never seen before)Everything was 5 star all the way.Everything was so near,lovely walks to the Park and the Rose garden,The Cathedrals,the buses,restaurants,the amazing Museum, a bus ride to the City and the views from the lounge and balcony over the harbour were magnificent.They welcomed our English friends (who live in Auckland)with the same warmth as they had us, when we returned one evening for a drink together.We quote another guest who said'Bart made hospitality a Work of Art'How right he was and of course Therese helped too.At the end of our stay Bart took us to the Cruise terminal,to our ship,
where we said a very sad farewell,perhaps we will return one day to Ascot Parnell,we sincerely hope so.

Room Tip: I think they would all be amazing

Every year we enjoy the tranquility of this place, but also the near to the City Center and
Harbour by bus.
Therese & Bart offer excellent accomondations with high standard, matched with great
hospitality, a very warm welcome and a gourmet-breakfast.
In all the years we felt us so at home during our stays in this sanctuary.

We were recommended to stay at the Ascot Parnell by some very travel-savvy friends, and boy were they right! From the moment Bart picked us up at the airport we felt like family. We were warmly greeted and cared for throughout our stay. The room was quite, comfortable, and incredibly clean, and the shared sitting room and balcony with a beautiful view was an unexpected bonus. The breakfast was terrific, something on the menu for everyone. Bart and Teresa sat down with us and helped design how we could make the most of our time in Auckland, including tips on the convenient busses and ferries. Could not have been nicer. Ascot Parnell has my highest recommendation.

Thank you Bart and Therese

We found Ascot Parnell a wonderful place to end our five week trip to Australia and New Zealand. Bart and Therese provide very personalized service in a lovely, contemporary setting overlooking Auckland harbor. Our stay started with Bart picking us up at the cruise terminal, even making two trips to accommodate us (2 couples) and all our luggage. Once at the condo, we were warmly greeted by Therese, who provided refreshing welcome drinks and a tour of the facilities, which are spacious, immaculate, nicely decorated and very comfortable. We had one of the suites with a bedroom, a large bathroom, and our own sitting room. The common areas included a large living room and balcony, where we spent a good portion of our down time reading and knitting. Communal breakfast provided each morning included fruit juice, bowls of cut up fresh fruit, cereal, and a whole menu of eggs, omelets, & French toast, cooked to order by Bart...way too much food for this "Tea and toast" person, but all delicious! Therese & Bart are great hosts, offering lots of suggestions on where to visit, restaurant recommendations, and directions on how to get everywhere, as well as sharing lots of information about New Zealand in general. We would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful place, and just wish we knew more people travelling to Auckland so we could spread the word!

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice, but having a private sitting room is a really nice feature, both in terms of...

Ascot Parnell is not your typical B&B. It is basically one floor of a three story condo bldg. Four of us (2 couples) spent 4 days in Auckland. We each had a bedroom, lovely bathroom and sitting room with more closet space than some NY city apts! There is a lovely living room/dining room and a fabulous balcony. If you have a car, there is limited indoor parking.

Therese & Bart go out of their way to provide information and any service you could possibly need. Bart picked us up at the ship (after a cruise) and took us to the airport-convenient, easy and worth the price. He also took us to the local farmers' market and would have taken us to other places as needed. They were both an excellent source for restaurants, travel tips and almost anything else you could need.

Breakfast is custom made and excellent. There is free wifi and 2 well behaved dogs. We could walk (10-15 min) up to Parnell Road for the bus to the CBD as well as restaurants and shops. We were very pleased and hope to return some time.

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms-2 have sitting rooms; the 3rd does not but is large with a huge closet.

We couldn't have wished for a better start to our holiday. Bart and Therese were attentive hosts who gave freely of their time to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Our room (or rooms as we had a sitting room as well as a bedroom) was immaculate. The terrace overlooking the bay and Sky Tower was amazing and the breakfasts delicious, particularly Therese's Flemish toast. Parnell itself is an upmarket area of the capital with lovely shops and cafes and a short bus ride into the city centre. After a long journey, this was an ideal base and one we could not recommend more highly.
