I have stayed at Verandahs for over 10 years, both with family and for business trips and conferences. Verandahs is incredibly well placed to enjoy Ponsonby or walk into Central Auckland. Rooms are simple and comfortable within two large wooden villa. Looking out over pohutukawa trees towards the harbour is always a high point. Campbell and his team always go the extra mile. Totally recommend. Hugh Forsyth

I find the 3 and 4-bed rooms very comfortable, we're not on top of each other. the kitchen area is really nice to work in, always clean in the morning, and pretty good at night. Lounge is very loungy, everyone pretty relaxed and doing their thing. Very rare to have someone shouting into the phone to a loved overseas.

We stayed in the Queen room with en-suite and it was really nice, spacious, clean and private. All the other guests and the staff were great and we felt completely at home. We ended up staying for a month while we were looking for an apartment in Auckland.

Lovely old place in a very good location - it overlooks a park and is close both to lively/grungy K Road and the hipper, flasher suburb of Ponsonby. The staff were friendly and helpful with my questions, and the price for a solo room was good. Plus it is no lie - it really does have verandahs!

Fabulous place to stay. Very spacious rooms with high ceilings. I had the newly refurbished double room which was excellent. Great location in Ponsonby area but easy walk into the city centre. Really friendly and easy going staff. Would definitely stay here again if I'm in Auckland

The location here can not be beaten. Walking distance to the central city, with the cafes and amenities of Ponsonby right around the corner, not to mention the surrounding characterful residential streets, ideal for a stroll. Right next to the park, and with verandahs and outdoor seating on the lawn all offering views of the Sky Tower and the park. Friendly and efficient service will ensure you feel welcome. We had a lovely double room with en-suite shower room. The room was both generous in size and comfortable, and the shower was great. Despite being an old, character building, the room was well insulated and stayed warm all night, in the middle of winter. There was a good sized table which would be ideal for working at. A great alternative to a standard hotel stay for business travellers; with plenty of breakfast and dinner options nearby.

Amazing staff. Great location as just in the back of a park with view of the Sky Tower. Absolutely loved it. It’s clean. Has got a Veranda overlooking the park. The rooms are really spacious and no bunk beds in the dorm I was in. Fantastic!!!!
