My wife and I stayed here in November of 2007 at the beginning and end of a 3-week vacation in New Zealand, and I returned again myself for a week for business in October of 2008. The quality of the rooms, furnishings, linens, service and grounds are superb. The location is Remuera, a very nice residential neighborhood about 15 minutes from the Central Business District. The location is ideal if you want to explore Auckland, want a base for day trips, or need a few days of luxury to unwind from a long flight or to cap off physically tiring adventures you may have had in NZ. The building is an historic landmark mansion that is one of the oldest (and nicest) homes in Auckland, with lovely gardens. It is filled with antiques and artwork. Gloria, the owner, is a perfect hostess, a tremendous cook, and a fascinating source of information about NZ. We have stayed at some of the best hotels in the world, and this is certainly the equal of any place we have stayed at, and much less expensive than a Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, etc.
