Ok but not great over priced for what you get. Service was ok but could have been a lot better.

Room Tip: Not the best but ok

We stayed here 4 years prior to the recent visit for only one night before flying out. This time we booked up for 3 nights to catch up with friends. Very comfortable, clean, quiet as on the last trip. We arrived after a long-haul flight and were able to have the room earlier, thanks to the very helpful staff member. The rooms are very well equipped and the location is ideal for walking in to the city. Nearby restaurants are plentiful and we pre-booked the Shuttle service to and from the airport. Would stay here every visit to Auckland.

Room Tip: Book well ahead.

Wanted to get to know Parnell better, and this was the spot to do that. Quest Parnell is really well appointed and comfortable, and very handy to the cafes etc. The service is great, the rooms are spacious. Would have been nice to have a balcony, but could still open the doors wide which was good.
With the link bus service so good, we didn't hire a car, and visited the city and Newmarket easily.
So many great cafes and restaurants to choose from.
Will definitely stay ther again,

This was a great place to stay. You can walk to most places, and the lap pool and gym are good. The rooms are spacious and fully equipped. Best of all was the fantastic service - Pennie and the team were always smiling and happy to help in any way. We would always stay here while in Auckland.

This apartment was a 2 minute walk to the main part of Parnell Road, one minute from great cafes, buses and shops, and just a 5 minute bus/taxi ride to Queen Street. Clean, spacious, modern, great facilities, lovely outdoor lap pool, small gym, good staff, and great value for money.

Room Tip: We had a downstairs room facing Heather street which got good sun on balcony - upstairs rooms may be...

Pennie and her team manage one of the best accommodations I have had the pleasure to stay at. Spending almost 1/3rd of my time in Auckland on business, Quest Parnell has been a true sanctuary,made even better by the surrounding Parnell cafes and restaurants. Not wanting a hotel for such long stays the clean, functional and spacious rooms are as good as serviced apartments get and the beds spot on. Being able to charge breakfast just up the road at Mink Cafe is also brilliant as it is one of Auckland's great cafe's. I feel a bit guilt writing such a good review, as after so many visits Pennie and her girls really make me feel at home I am almost an insider!! Anyway ... highly recommended (as it was to me).

Room Tip: If u can afford the extra few dollars go for one bedroom rather than studios. Lots of space and nice...

My husband and I recently stayed at quest Parnell with our four month old baby, we booked the one bedroom apartment to have more space then their studio rooms, however I was very disappointed, very small one bedroom apartment, seemed more like a studio room with sliding doors to close off the bedroom ( which mind you didn't close properly). The apartment was very clean however so have to give credit there. In terms of location Parnell is great, lots of nice places to eat and not far from Newmarket shopping district. Overall small apartment and average service. Not ideal apartment if travelling with kids.
