“Great place to stay! Convenient to the city.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

We recently spent 4 nights at Ascot Parnell B&B, in a garden view room. The room was 5 star and very quiet. We had a separate bedroom, small living space and fabulous bathroom with shower. The attention to detail showed the years of experience our hosts, Bart & Therese, have. They are attentive, without ever being intrusive. Their 20 years in the business, and their delightful energy, helped to make our brief stay in Auckland very memorable. They were knowledgeable and helpful with sight-seeing suggestions, which started on the transfer from the airport to the B&B with Bart. Breakfast was served in the communal living space, and consisted of fruit, orange juice, cereals, toast, tea/coffee and your choice of cooked breakfast from an extensive menu. The convenience of having Auckland city so close meant that we could walk or take a short bus ride into the city, and we enjoyed our walk along the bay via the Rose Garden and Parnell Baths on our way home one afternoon; before making ourselves a cuppa and sitting on the balcony overlooking the city as the evening sun began to set. The range of restaurant in Parnell gave us plenty of choices for dinner, and I have never felt safer walking home in the evenings in a city as I did in Parnell. We would definitely recommend Ascot Parnell B&B as an excellent place to stay in Auckland, whether for business, or pleasure.

Room Tip: The B&B has only 3 guest bedrooms; all are excellent.

My wife and I recently spent three nights at Ascot Parnell. Bart picked us up from the airport which is a great service that we would recommend. Our Suite was immaculate and spacious with an amazing city skyline view. If you like to run, walk or cycle, you are very close to the harbour route. Bart & Therese are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Parnell centre is a five minute walk and has lots of choice of cuisine and of course coffee shops. The breakfasts are delicious, we were spoilt! Needless to say we can recommend Ascot Parnell highly.

I chose this property hoping it would allow me to recover from my jet lag quickly, coming from Europe, and it did. The harbor view room was quiet and restful with a view to boot and my hosts, Bart and Therese, were lovely. The easy access to Parnell by foot and, by bus, the rest of the city, made the location perfect for me. They provided maps and recommendations for food, spa, sights. Access to a desktop computer with fast wi-fi for other devices was also very helpful. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: All are quiet, clean, roomy with something to recommend about each

We recently spent 2 relaxing nights in this wonderful bed and breakfast in Auckland. Our hosts Therese and Bart were a delight and couldn't do enough for us. Plenty of good suggestions about what to see in the area and nothing was a bother. The breakfasts were wonderful and the views over Auckland Harbour were amazing (both from our room and at breakfast). The rooms were of an extremely high quality (5 star) and beautifully kept. We would recommend Ascot Parnell Boutique bnb to anyone going to Auckland. It is a high quality bnb with amazing views, it is a credit to Therese and Bart.
Norelle and Mark

Room Tip: All of them are high quality but the Harbour-view room was fantastic.

What a pleasurable few days were spent here - the first class location, wonderful breakfasts individually made to your taste, personal attention to the comforts one needs when on holiday, all have been praised highly in the reviews. Harder to describe are the less definable things - the warmth and comfort of the apartments and lounge that make up the three bedroomed B and B, the glorious views of the harbour that await you when you retreat from the mad city world outside, the owners' genuine desire to attend to your comfort and needs - incredibly helpful and accommodating but never intrusive, and the feeling of living in a very beautiful home. With the owners in an adjacent apartment but on hand, you never feel crowded in. Just free to relax and enjoy what is on offer. Our top choice for our next visit to Auckland!

Room Tip: Clearly the king harbour suite is the best but all the three suites have their own attractions, and...

We stumbled upon Ascot Parnell while frantically searching B+B's during a breakfast after we spent a horrible night at a previous service provider. One quick phone call later Bart arrived and whisked us away to the beautiful and totally comfortable Ascot Parnell.

Amazing views of the Auckland harbor, tons of space in our room and an ultra comfortable bed was the turning point to what had been a disastrous start to the Auckland leg of our journey.

The usual concern we had about B+B accommodation is the overbearing owners who do not give you enough space in order to enjoy your stay. This was NOT the case here!!! Bart and Therese are so warm and hospitable. Whether you need advise on transport or things to do in and around Auckland they go out of their way to ensure to can squeeze the best out of your trip.

Both Alison and I love food and the breakfast prepare you for your days in Auckland.

All in all a FANTASTIC experience and this should be your accommodation of choice for when you visit Auckland.

We stayed here for three nights in the largest room, with a great view of the harbour. It is all very clean and well appointed. It is located close to the area's main shopping street and to public transport as well. We rarely heard any street noise. The hosts are very accommodating and happy to provide information about the area and Auckland and it is much nicer than staying in an impersonal hotel. It is lovely meeting different people at breakfast too. There is a good variety of breakfast choices, which are cooked for you as ordered. Bart was kind to drop us in town at the car rental place. He and Therese are very welcoming and pleasant people running a great B&B.
