“Not Friendly Towards Non-Anglo Saxons!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2005

Having being advised by my travel agent to stay at this 5 stay luxurious property, my first impression of the property was very positive, I was in uttmost awe with the decor and the ambience of the entrance. I was impressed to see a young polynesian decent talented host running the hotel and keeping up appearances. Unfortunately, I was only dissppointed to feel intimidated by the owners who are anglo-saxons to talk down at us at dinner with my family. Thier attitudes towards my family and especially towards to my children is totally unacceptable!!! Having witnessed how they treated the other guests in house, they made it clear that we were not welcomed in the hotel. From now on, I will NOT RECCOMMEND this PROPERY TO OTHERS, and my travel agent, has been informed not to send business in thier direction. The property might be 5 star, but the attitudes towards cultural indifferences is a mere '0'. I advise people with families, to stay at ta CHILD FREINDLY PROPERTY...

Just outside of downtown Auckland is a 12-room hillside hotel that certainly deserves its membership in Luxury Hotels of the World. It's 1100 sq ft rooms are individually decorated in a charming mixture of antiques and contemporary furnishings reflective of the owner's background as an opera instructor. Several of the ground floor rooms even include a baby grand or full size harp. The staff and the service is the equal of most 5 star hotels. The lighting and fine touches of artwork including the classical cd's playing when you enter your room is indicative of the experience. It's a bit on the expensive side but worth every penny!

I found Mollies staff gracious, friendly and helpful at all times. The ambience is filled with light and wonderful music. It has that great attention to detail which makes it soar above the rest of the luxury hotels on offer in Auckland. The decor is imaginative and exciting as well as being restful and luxurious.

Its location in St Mary's Bay is a short 5 minute car journey to the city centre, but well away from the hustle and bustle of city traffic. I thoroughly recommend Mollies. It certainly had the 'x' factor for me.

Smart, well-appointed rooms belie some of the most pretentious, haughty service and personnel you'll find anywhere in New Zealand. What a stark contrast to the rest of the country. And at these prices, you'll find a better value elsewhere in Auckland. Furthermore, St. Mary's Bay is a bit out of the action -- albeit not too far from Ponsonby. Still, a bit of a schlep to most notable destinations in the city.
