Beautiful place and very comfortable. Stayed here twice in three weeks and each time I found it friendly and good value. Facilities are excellent and the view of the Auckland skyline from Room 9 is spectacular. Thankyou.

We were greeted warmly by Jill after arriving at 2am with 3 young children in tow. The room was just big enough, quiet and with comfortable beds. The location is amazing, right in the centre of ponsonby with many places to eat just a short walk away. Parking was easy too. Overall I was very happy there and didn't want...

Cute place, friendly owners. We only booked for a night after a late arriving flight but we're very pleased. A great location, with lots of dinner and breakfast options in walking distance. Definitely a place to which I will return.

We have just spent a relaxing weekend at the Ponsonby Manor. Jill was a wonderful host and our room was cosy, clean and comfortable. Shared kitchen worked well with other guests. Would highly recommend and most certainly will be staying again. Great location for exploring shops and restaurants and near to the city also. Loved the history of the Manor...

This is a great location in the upmarket area of Ponsonby. There are many very good, local restaurants and cafes that are all within a short walking distance from the accommodation. The bus which comes every ten minutes during the day is outside the front door and takes you into the city for $3. The room was stylish, comfortable and...

My husband and I stayed at the Ponsonby Manor guesthouse for a week in September. It was a perfect place for us. We booked Room 9 which has a gorgeous view of Auckland's CBD, the Sky Tower, and Rangitoto. Yes, the room is small but it was very comfortable. The manor itself is well-kept and very pretty with a lovely...

I stayed in Ponsonby Manor on 229 Ponsonby Road for a whole month. I had originally planned to travel around NZ and camp a bit more, but I liked the Auckland vibe so much, and Ponsonby Manor, too, that I decided to go "urban" and stay. And that was the best decision ever. The Manor is perfectly placed at about...
