Stayed two weekends at The Parnell, once for a staff day, where we were fully catered for, another with my wife. Clean, nice rooms, free parking, central location - if you like walking, 20-30min to the city. The restaurant is nice. You don't hear noise from other rooms and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Good value, too.

Stayed at the Parnell Inn for 1 night. The standard studio room was quite small but perfectly fine for me on my own - comfy queen size bed. The room and ensuite were clean and tidy. Friendly helpful staff. Parnell Road is packed with eating places so plenty of choices for meals. And some interesting shops as well (which alas...

Fantastic location - lots of lovely places to eat nearby and boutique shops; walking distance to the centre (30 mins) and very near the lovely Auckland Domain. Hotel itself is fairly basic and could do with a bit of updating, but it's clean, spacious and good value for money for the location.

We were very pleased to find such a nice room in this wonderful location. The room was clean and very adequate. A great benefit is the free off street parking as well. The location was great with so many bars, restaurants, shops and attractions within walking distance. It is very convenient to access public transport as well as the Hop...

The location is perfect !! wonderful food places at parnell road. Its walkable from Via duct harbour. Good connectivity for buses as well. Only thing is there is no lift and quite a bit of stairs to get to the rooms or the parking lot as well.

Like most big cities, finding decent low cost lodging is a challenge. Parnell Inn offers a decent room at a reasonable price for Auckland. Sitting roughly in the middle of Parnell Road, the Inn has a great location for visiting the Auckland Museum, while the street is lined with great little shops and plenty of dining options. For the price,...

The room was clean and tidy, and all and all, was good value for central Auckland. The downside was the bed, which was like sleeping on a concrete slab. It was extremely hard - might suit some people - but my wife and myself found it very uncomfortable. Other than that, the place was fine

We were very happy with the location, the manager gave us maps and tips to save money by using the buses that do a circuit of town rather than catch the hop on hop off tourist bus. The room was clean and the cafe at the front offers an excellent light dinner. There are shops galleries, souvenir shops and restaurants...

My husband and I were in Parnell for our son's wedding. The day had begun tremendously when we had left our car at Christchurch and flew to Auckland, then caught the super shuttle to Parnell...gotta say the lady driving that was amazing! Dropped at the front door of Parnell Inn at between approx 9 and 9.30am. We knew when we...

I've stayed a few times. Rooms are clean, comfortably furnished but basic. No really of motel standard as there is a small fridge, kettle and toaster but no microwave. Though there is such choice of places to eat on the doorstep this is not an issue. The Cafe at the front has wonderful coffee and cafe and the breakfast I...
