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.

What a nice treat after hotels. Situated in the upscale district of Parnell with good dining just a short walk away. The accommodations are situated on the second floor (entrance off elevator) with views of the city. Bert and Therese have joined two units together to make a beautiful B&B. They are gracious hosts who are always available for tips in seeing the city and surrounding area. Delicious breakfasts with great conversation. Our small two room suite was very clean and comfortable.

During our 7-week holidays in New Zealand, we mostly stayed in 4 and 5 star B&B's. Nearly all were of exeptional quality and made our trip
in this beautiful country unforgettable. Of the 19 different lodgings
we had, Ascot Parnell in Auckland was one of our favourites. What is better to start such a long holiday with Dutch-speaking friends who met you at the airport and make you feel comfortable rightaway. Trees
and Bart are fantastic people, always in for a chat, giving advice about the things to see and (not) to do, and...great cooks. Their house is quietly situated in Parnell with its many restaurants, nice little shops and only 5 bus-minutes away from downtown. We had a very
nice bedroom and sittingroom, apart from the very spacious guests-lounge and balcony, looking towards the city-centre and containerport. This address is top-of-the-bill.

We stayed in Ascot Parnell for 3 nights recently. This is the 2nd floor of an upscale condo-like 3-story new building; this is not a big older quaint house, but a new very modern flat. You won't see it from the street since it's very discreetly hidden back from the St. Stephens road. I would agree with all that's been written, it's very nice, spotlessly maintained, and the hosts are seasoned hoteliers. Bart is helpful and resourceful. If you are OK with the set-up of having the owners right there on the same floor with you (our room opened into a hallway that led into their living room), then this will be fine for you. It's very nice, but you will be getting to know your neighbors and sharing space with the owners, not unusual in a B&B. We had a little traffic noise from St. Stephens in our room, but I suspect the other two rooms were not facing the road. Breakfasts were very nice.

We stayed here for the first night of our holiday in New Zealand. Bart ad Therese are great hosts and so welcoming I was genuinely sad to have to leave the next morning.

The breakfast is fantastic. The room we were in (harbour view) was really lovely.

Would definitely stay here again.
