The Quest Ponsonby is a complete disgrace. I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for 2 nights and couldn't handle a 3rd after all the problems. The manager even agrees 'its a bit tired' but that doesn't stop them charging over $300 NZ per night for a stained bed cover, flood in the kitchen, blood on the bathroom door, a...

We needed accomodation and Auckland was completely booked out except this place. We now understand why. The balconies were closed off because they are unsafe, the shower flooded the bathroom every time we used it, the electric hob could only be operated by the wall switch and both hobs went at the same time, you could not use only one,...

Of the worst stay of our eight week trip of Australia and New Zealand The Quest Ponsonby Auckland. The tiny room we could cope with. The shutters over half of the windows, we walked in the beautiful park opposite the motel. The welcome from the trainee receptionist, on her own, was smiley but sadly she hadn't the faintest clue about...

It is in a good location but if you are an International traveller, you will struggle with their internet. Its $10 for 1g to be used in 24 hours but it is ridiculously slow and counter productive. What a waste of money! Bed sheets curtains had stains and rooms are very dark. Staff were very friendly but only available until...

As the title says, it is convenient for a one night stand. I had a room on the main floor, with a window, ok, but straight on a wall ... So if you are not looking for a view and are just staying for a night, fine. Rooms are clean though, internet is not for free, and is not super...

In general, this was a fairly good hotel. Clean, and in a tremendous location with a great range of restaurants very close by. Also, a good supermarket is near the hotel and within easy walking distance if carrying bags of food etc. That said, I was disappointed with the room I was allocated. The windows were covered by shutters, so...

Had a two bedroom apartment overlooking the park across Ponsonby Rd. Comfortable sleep and no traffic noise. The apartment was relatively spacious and clean. It was a bit disconcerting having doors to a balcony with no rails but clearly labeled not to enter.

Great location and a nice little apartment that did exactly as required and expected. Friendly, helpful service at the desk. All very standard and hardly worth doing a review except for its terrible WiFi - it really should be free in this enlightened age but as work was paying I half happily paid the minimal fee, through a bizarre touch...

We stayed at this hotel arriving late from overseas. Having realistic expectations of this business hotel, it was okay for our night's sleep. It was disappointing that no internet was included. Waking up in the morning, a few unordinary things were noticed - the bathroom fan and lights were broken, along with some other spotlights in the room. There is...
