Serious lack of customer service, unless they are very quiet, not a place to bring a group of families. Pool, no more than 2 at a time! I see why but it isn't advertised as a lap pool. Room service was sporadic, breakfast packs were hit and miss, owners were rude. Good location, good restaurants, bars, cafes and shops on...

Good Morning, This group were the most disrespectful people we have ever had stay in 10 years. The children who were a sports group were let to run wild at night while the adults congregated in one room drinking. This was a nightly occasion and we were forced to hire a security person to walk around the building to stop...

The quest at parnell on first impressions looks like an old office block. There are four floors of accommodation. The room was clean and had a small kitchenette for cooking and a washing machine and dryer. We had a lovely view to the sky tower and city. The room received a daily service. The bathroom could do with some hooks...

This hotel is plain inside and out, no bling, no extra services, no fuss, but I feel it was value for money in an area close to the city but not in it. There was no view but the room was a good size, clean, comfortable with basic kitchen amenities and a washer and dryer in the bathroom. There was...

Stayed here the night before we caught the Northern Explorer from Strand Street Station. Ideal location as it is a short bus ride from city centre yet plenty of nice eateries very close. The apartments although quite small ( the shower isn't huge however very clean bathroom ) couldn't fault them they are very clean, very comfy beds and have...

Quest Parnell is in Parnell, about 10 mins bus ride away from the centre of Auckland. Parnell is one of the oldest suburbs in Auckland and has a lovely and relaxing atmosphere. It has plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, shops etc. We (three of us) stayed at one of their two bedroom apartments, clean, modern and comfortable. The kitchenette was...

We needed a hotel for our first night arriving New Zealand. The Quest Eden fit the bill perfectly. It was a great location, in the city centre and close to our car rental location. Everything was within walking distance. The only thing lacking was a place for breakfast nearby. Otherwise it had everything we needed for our first day. The...

Nice clean hotel, lots of in room facilities, enjoyed a walk out to dinner in Parnell, easy walk to the Strand station, chose the Quest as it has high standards and the location was right for us, the bus from Britomart stops close by, Parnell has lots of Restaurants bars and little cafes, very good location

Great location, really friendly efficient reception, easy parking, plenty of room, clean, beds made up as requested, free wifi, good satellite essential for rugby(!) didn't realise there was gym and pool from booking via website... Know for next time! Because it is slightly outside city centre very quiet, but sound proofing in hotel not great....overall a really good choice
