Stayed two night and were pleased although the room was a tight fit but then you get what you pay for. The owners were very helpful and it was extremely clean. The restaurant was closed when we were there but there are lots of good places nearby. Well worth a stay for a few nights.

The new owner couple are very friendly and flexible. Good price and location, with restaurants and art galleries steps away. Room clean and well equipped (a few with small but fully functioning kitchenette). Some rooms have glimpse of water. Had a very nice stay.

The Parnell Inn is located on Parnell Road in the centre of the trendy inner Auckland suburb of Parnell, but offers convenient off street parking for guests. Our room was quite comfortable and provided a small view of the harbour. Their bistro was most surprising - offering an excellent choice of uniquely imaginative cuisine. The location is one of its...

Stayed last two nights, in room 8 upstairs- one of the smallest and cheapest rooms available. Yes, small, but clean and plenty of room to walk around the bed, although recently renovated bathroom was tiny with a tiny & cute, only just usable wash basin (wobbly tap), and a showerhead which was very miserly. Next time we will pay $20... More

We picked this place out of the AA Guide because of its location, and we were not disappointed. Right in the heart of Parnell Village, a reasonable walk to central Auckland and the waterfront, and on the bus route for the inner and outer link (we tried it both ways). Many cafes and restaurants to choose from, as well as... More

Stayed here two nights last week. The place smells of chlorine but rooms are clean though very tired. Bed was very average and hard. All toiletries were supplied and towels were good. It is a bit like a dorm as the rooms are all off a central hallway which could be noisey. Walk across the road and you are in... More

We stayed for one night in room 7, it was decorated very nicely (lamp was very fancy!) and it was very cozy. We checked in late at night and everything was ready for us. Was a little worried when we saw the comment on the noise, but we didn't experience any noise. Overall a lovely stay, location is superb. The... More

"Spectacularly underwhelmed" is the phrase that comes to mind. The experience was so less-than-desirable I don't know where to start. Our room was directly under the restaurant kitchen judging by the noise each night, bottles being tossed in the bins, people clomping about, loud discussions that bordered on arguments. The daily service, according to a sign above the kitchen sink,... More

This is an appalling business managed by an appalling man. We booked for two nights, confirmed in the morning. Arrived and were told they only had our room booked for one night!!! But there was another although totally unsuitable room available for the next night. Not at all impressed so we left. He phoned us at our home later, where... More
