Felt a bit deceived as this is really an older boarding house rather than a motel or hotel, even through they have done up the front and rooms and it was clean and tidy was still a bit shabby. The check-in service and restaurant were very helpful and the location can't be beat, but parking is right down the bottom...

The room was very small for the price, and so was the bathroom. It is really well situated if you intend to use public transportation, but walking to city center is like 40 minutes... It is really an ok hotel, but it is just too expensive for what you get.

We had a two night stay after our arrival in Auckland. The Inn is well situated in the centre of Parnell, within walking distance of or a short bus ride from Auckland CBD. Parnell has lots of boutique shops, restaurants and bars, so there's no need to travel into the centre if you don't want to. The room was pretty...

This is the restaurant review. Not the hotel. Just don't eat there. Had a pizza - was sweet sticky topping on pita bread!!!! Yoghurt was runny and horrible. Husband had burger and chips. Both terrible. Never had such bad food. There are many great restaurants there in the street., Xxxxxxxx cxxxxxxxxx

Let's start with the positives - great location and close to Vector Arena for our show. The food at the bistro was amazing as was the coffee. Low points, we started getting texts at 5pm asking where we were and how long would we be, on arrival the price quoted on booking.com was not the price they wanted us to...

Probably the cheapest place we could find so total value for money. Staff friendly and accommodating. Unit basic. Advised that the fridge in our room wasn't working very well. Shower worked fine. Hot water and good pressure. Be nice if there was a fire alarm for piece of mind. Parking is a bit difficult but it is free and off...

I'll start with the positive, and that would be a great location on Parnell Road close to restaurants, shops and public transport. Internet speed was good. Now for the negative, firstly this motel is filthy dirty, I don't think it is ever cleaned by a cleaner and one day we came back at 5pm to find our towels and tea...

Room size OK, fan and no A/C, but windows opened safely. Could have done with better housekeeping: vacuuming behind the doors and along the skirting;cups, saucers need a bleaching. Restaurant was closed two out of the three days we were there,? the reason. The $10 lunch we did have was value for the money. Reception staff had no idea about...

Far from the impression given on the web site, we found this hotel very average. The good point is the situation on Parnell Road: you need to walk ten minutes to reach the Auckland Domain, and it is not so far from CBD. The two-room appartment is in the basement: one room has almost no natural light, and the other...

This 3 star motel is located in the heart of Parnell surrounded by 20 or more restaurants, cafes, bars plus shops and hotels. Right on the Inner bus route, you are in city centre in 10 mins. Property has cafe at front and 16 or so rooms split over 2 floors. Rooms are very motel style and quality. Clean but...
