‘Ponsonby Manor’ is a clean, pleasant, and well-maintained building with a garden for guest use. We (two people) stayed for 5 nights from Easter Sunday and left early in the morning of the following Friday. Our room (number 3) was a little too small for comfort; mainly because there was nowhere to keep our cases other than on the floor....

This guest house, now just called "Ponsonby Manor" offers several very nicely furnished rooms in a lovely, meticulously maintained Victorian building in the trendy Ponsonby neighborhood. Some of the rooms are on the small side, but guests are invited to use a common sitting room, and to relax in the beautiful garden. Several good restaurants and an upmarket deli are...

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us at The Ponsonby Manor. As you have kindly pointed out , our location, well kept premises and lovely garden area do help compensate for the small size of some of our rooms. The Manor being an historic house, all of the rooms are different and we...

We love Ponsonby! It was our first experience of Kiwi accommodation and a great one. A warm welcome from the hosts settled us in. Our room was super clean – as was all the accommodation that we stayed in whilst in New Zealand. It’s a great location; just off the centre of town with a fab’ deli opposite for bread...

Wonderful guesthouse in a great neighborhood filled with restaurants yet walking distance to downtown and across the street from the bus stop for an easy ride downtown. My room was comfortable and clean albeit a little small (inquire about size ahead of time) but had a lovely patio area with a table and chairs. The hosts are incredibly wonderful. My...

Ponsonby Manor is a worthwhile alternative to the big league in the city, but close by. We booked the penthouse room with its own verandah and view, which was compact but comfortable for two nights. The restaurants and cafes in Ponsonby Road are handy and good quality. Rob and Jill provide friendly and helpful service at Ponsonby Manor. Thank you.

We stayed 3 nights and Jill and Rob were wonderful hosts and very helpful with tips on things to see and getting around Auckland. The location is very central with restaurants and cafes straight across the road. Auckland center was only a 30 minute walk or via InnerLink bus with stops right outside the door. (Bus comes every 10 minutes),...

Ponsonby is a hip little neighborhood with some amazing restaurants and bars. The Red Monkey is just across from a great selection of them all. The owners are very sweet, welcoming, and not imposing. They will give you a good run down of the closest options, but it is well worth exploring and asking around for suggestions as well. There...
