Agree with other reviews. Clean efficient and good value. Wonderful location and v friendly check in and room service. A steps away great coffee and food at Mink. Around the corner fresh juice at Tank. With a village street a few steps away of great restaurants. Try Non Solo for pizza or home made pasta. Pricey but nice

Very convenient alternative to the CBD. Straight on/off the motorway. On the weekends you may find parking on the street outside, otherwise book into their secure car park. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Room clean and ok standard, quiet, good bed. Nice lap pool which goes outside from the gym, above the reception/entrance. Plenty of cafes and bars...

Quest Parnell isn't life-changing - but its decent. The rooms are big enough, clean and the reception staff are very friendly and helpful. Its a great location with cafes, ATM, groceries nearby. The kitchen is starting to look a little dated, but still very functional and tidy. You have to pay for parking, or park on the street (which wasn't...

Located in a nice area of the city, this small but comfortable hotel is within walking distance to restaurants and shops, and a short taxi ride from the pier. It is difficult to find as it is in a courtyard and set back from a side street. There are a few steps between the street and the hotel, which is...

I'm sure the Quest Parnell is fine, and the owner/manager charming, so long as you don't expect any customer service. I have just been berated by the owner, for speaking rudely to her staff, and threatened "don't you ever speak to one of my staff like that again - I'm warning you!". It would be interesting to know what she's...

Good Evening, Very interesting feedback regarding this reservation. Firstly, you made your reservation through Expedia so you should have received your confirmation from them. Secondly, you arrived after Reception had closed, you yelled through and banged on the entry doors to get in when you could have seen our Receptionist was on the phone. She hung up and tried to...

A conveniently located apartment style hotel. No frills, but a clean and spacious room/apartment allows you to relax. There is no room service or breakfast available, however the property is close to several cafes and restaurants. You can also charge any meals back to your room. A small gym and pool gives this property some extra cred! Recommended for a...

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.
