Pennie in reception was great. Mink with the best coffee is 20 metres away and the rest of Parnell around the corner. You can walk into the CBD in 10 to 15 minutes. Lovely facilities and very quiet. Much better than staying in the CBD. Highly recommend.

We stayed on our first night in NZ, so majorly jetlagged. This place was perfect, really easy to find after hiring a car from the airport! Parking included which made it even better, although there's plenty of free parking on the streets. We had an apartment and it was perfect for what we needed. Very comfy beds, clean & powerful...

A well run hotel in a quiet street off Parnell Road. With clean, comfortable and very well equipped rooms, this was a very pleasant place to stay. We didn't stay long enough to make use of all the facilities, but imagine that they would have made a real difference had we been there for longer. Staff were always helpful.

Perfect place to stay if you want a pleasant walkable neighbourhood in Auckland. Multiple options for eating, walk to downtown, and exceptional staff. You can walk downtown in 15 minutes, to dinner in 5 minutes, with breakfast and luncheon places minutes away.

In January we stayed at Quest in Heather St, Parnell for the 6th time over 7 years. The location is excellent, with easy vehicle access and on site parking (needs to be booked ahead) with the city a 5 minute bus ride or 15 walk away. We have a one bedroom apartment with kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom with...

We stayed in a studio apartment for a few days and would definitely recommend the studios here! We liked the location, the apartments are located in Parnell, which is within easy walking distance of the city center (10-15 minutes walking). There are also quite a few good restaurants in the neighbourhood. The ladies and gentlemen at the reception were extremely...

A little tricky to find the first time but as long as you arrive after 5 you'll find a park out front pretty easy. Suggest booking a parking space if you're coming earlier and make sure you do this well in advance. Quest offered a more studio apartment feel rather than a hotel room. Great for business with really good...

Quest Parnell is situated within easy walking to the main street of Parnell with plenty of restaurants/cafes to choose from and access to buses to take you into the city. Our two bedroom apartment was ample in size with a lounge area, two bathrooms and two bedrooms which were private. The kitchen had good appliances etc. for those who prefer...

Great accommodation in a great location for parnell (where there are tons of lush eateries). Not much kitchen cupboard space but only a problem if you are staying a long time. Would definitely return.

I stayed here recently for work. The taxi driver had to point the building out to me because I missed the signage - from the road this place looks like an office block. The entrance from the street is up some stairs, which could be a pain for those with large or multiple bags of luggage. My room was on...
