We found the service excellent in every way and enjoyed our host's friendly hospitality during our 2-night stay. Premium accommodation, roomy and spotlessly clean, stunning views, and breakfast that’s out of this world! Easy to get to and we liked the secure parking. Just a short walk to some lovely dining places in Parnell Rd. (3 Nutmegs Restaurant is recommended).

Property's Favourite Review
We stayed 2 nights at this wonderful B&B and would recommend it highly to others. It's located in the heart of Parnell, which is a nice, quiet area with several good restaurants and boutique stores nearby. The hosts, Bart and Therese, were truly a delight as was their sweet dog, Zubaidi! Even before our trip began, they were most helpful and quick to respond to our questions on things to do and places to see in and around the Auckland area. The Garden Room - King Room was well appointed, spacious and clean. And the view from the community balcony of the Auckland harbor and downtown skyline was phenomenal, especially at night. Each morning, they prepared a delicious breakfast (made to order from their menu) that proved to be much more than one can possibly eat. A definite "must stay" if we should return to New Zealand again!

This property is awesome. Your hosts Bart and Theresa are wonderful hosts that provide whatever is needed by the guests. The Multi-million dollar view of the city and the Port is really interesting day or night. The breakfast menu is gourmet and extensive and is included everyday; my favourite was the Crepes (delicious yougurt as well- that is another story...). There are three rooms and each are beautifully appointed with fine fabrics, great space with wonderful art, and a very restful place snuggled into the Parnell Central business area. I was able to walk to the Auckland CBD in 15-20minutes, and Pandoro bakery just up from the Ascot Parnell is not to be missed. There are separate airconditioning/heating units in each room, so you can get just that right temperature everytime. Spacious, modern bathrooms with roman tubs provide a truly spa like feeling to the stay. It is private, quiet, and a beautiful area that is close in the city, but feels like you are in the country. I can not rate this property high enough. Also, for airport travellers, ask Bart about his Airport Transport- its the best if he has time and can arrange to pickup or deliver you to the airport between guests. I hope that you love it as much as I did for the 7 days I spent at Ascot Parnell.

Dear Kyle, First of all, Therese and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this incredible review. It's up for about 4 days yet it has received many peoples "helpful review likes" due to the detail you provide on your experience especially our unique neighborhood... It will benefit all who live and work in Parnell Village... I'm assuming you're back home and well... Please say hi to Neil and letting you know that we have had many reservations from the United States for the coming summer 21/22 since you left here and hoping that the government, airlines and cruise ship companies will make it all happen for next summer. xxx Bart, Therese and Zubaidi

From the moment we arrived we knew we had found somewhere special to stay. Bart is a truly wonderful host and nothing is too much trouble for him. He is a superb chef and the breakfasts were divine. He is a mine of information and gave us some excellent recommendations. Extremely comfortable bed and lovely and quiet. So nice to be able to use the swimming pool. Will definitely return and recommend to friends.

From the moment I phoned Bart our experience has been of top service! Upon arrival Bart ensured that myself, my hubby and our daughter were taken care of. We're from the country and so being in the city was a big deal for us. Our stay was just magical! The rooms (spotless!) - the views of the city (stunning!) - the FOOD (so many choices!) - WOW! Breakfast was just out of this world! But most of all it was our host Bart and his fur baby Zubaidi who made our stay most memorable. He went over and above our expectations catering for all our needs where possible. Thank you Bart for making our trip that more special. You have quite a gem in the midst of the busy city. We also enjoyed being able to walk to all the shops, cafes and restaurants. Make sure to visit the Chocolate Boutique Cafe down the road - you won't regret it! Again, this place is sooo good that we can't wait to go back!

Dear Nataria, Rowan and Mahinarangi, Therese and I wish to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your lovely review.

We definitely look forward to welcoming you here again and our extra happy that you had a good time here in Parnell. Warmest greetings from Bart, Therese and Zubaidi
