Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed for 2 nights in the studio room which was clean and well equipped. There is a small kitchen, king bed, wardrobe, desk and W/D in bathroom. The room is a good size for 1-2 persons for a short stay of a few nights. If staying longer I would suggest a larger room. The hotel had a small gym and a lap pool which I did not use during my visit. The staff was friendly and available for any questions or concerns. The only negatives of the room was the shower draining too slowly that the floor filled up some during showers. The kitchen could have used some dish soap and the freezer had ice trays that were stuck due to ice build up. The location was very convenient and the neighborhood of Parnell is quiet and upscale looking with many choices for shopping and eateries. The Auckland Museum, Domain and Wintergardens are a walking distance to the hotel. You can catch a bus or train to move around the city which were all convenient. There is a dairy called the Wyvern Dairy not far which had some basic food staples/items however they were cash only at the time of my visit. Net Pharmacy is within walking distance. You can take public transportation but I decided to walk to the nearest Countdown for groceries. Lala Cafe which is up the block from the hotel has excellent coffee. There is also a Pita Pit not far for something quick and cheap to eat.

We frequently visit Auckland on business and prefer to stay at the Quest Parnell as our first choice. From our perspective the hotel’s location provides us the best of both of our requirements. It is fairly close to the CBD and yet iclose enough in walking distance to some of Parnell fine restaurants and cafe. The apartments are quiet and comfortable. The rooms are clean, the staff are organised, caring and take the trouble to learn what works for their customers. The king sized beds in the rooms we stayed in and adequate parking option offered to us makes it ideal for our needs.

We have stayed in many Quest apartments. This would be by far the most disappointing. It is in a handy location however the unit was less than adequate. The wardrobe door was broken, there was no extra bedding and Sky TV was playing up. We are also used to a selection of tea bags and often a biscuit In the unit. To be give the staff credit they did come and sort the Sky issue out.

We have stayed at Quest Parnell on many occasion over the last 15 years and have always received a very warm welcome. The staff are great- very friendly and helpful. The 1 bedroom apartments are a good size and always very clean. The bed, linen and towels are very good and the large windows provide great views Bathroom has a washing machine and dryer and a clothes airer is provided which is much appreciated. On site car parking is available at extra cost- best to book ahead. Its a short walk - about 15 mins downhill to the CBD and buses run along Parnell Rd if you don't want to walk uphill coming back. Parnell Rd has lots of food outlets so you can eat out, have takeaway or self cater - Countdown supermarket is a short walk/bus ride away. Highly recommended

Great location.Close to many cafes and restaurants, public transportation and short walks ( under 30 mins) to ferry and city, if you are so inclined. Rooms are neat and clean. Bonus having wash/dryer.

Had a nice easy experience at Quest Parnell. The place was clean, tidy and service was all I needed it to be. They were able to check me in early and I could leave my bag at reception that was placed in my room. Easy check in and check out. The room was well equipped and spacious, again, with everything I need. I'd be happy to stay again.

Good sized apartment with very comfortable bed. Everything you could need for self catering and travelling. Staff very friendly and helpful. Car park is easy to use and the spaces wide enough. Parnell is a great location for Auckland. Restaurants are superb and public transport frequent. Easy walk to the Domain and museum . The apartment is very well situated for all of this. The swimming lane is a good length but really too shallow for breast stoke and just wide enough for one person.

It’s between and average and a good because the price was too high compared to the quality of the room. However the location is great and the staff nice. Basically the place needs a revamp as the walls & furniture were all bashed and damaged and of a low quality. There were stains on the furniture and carpets and the shower was grubby looking from age not because it wasn’t clean. The bed was small and the pillows awful. The room was quite small but it was nice and quiet. The kitchen facilities in the room were very basic and minimal but it did have a washing machine and drier if you were there for a week. So all in all the only down was the cost for the quality, especially as I stay in Carlow Quest just a 5 minute walk down the road for a fraction of the price but actually had a lovely new well appointed room with more facilities in the room.

Good Morning, Disappointing for a review - sounds rather contrived with the way you have mentioned another Hotel - the first time we have experienced this in over 14 years. We would love to know what room you stayed in with all the bashed, damaged walls, stained furniture and small bed. Makes us wonder if you actually here.

We visit NZ often and when in Auckland always stay at Quest Parnell. Staff are most helpful and friendly. If you arrive out of hours there are detailed instuctions at the door to gain access. If arriving before your room is ready, staff will keep your luggage safe. After hours checkout is also easy. If you do have a car, you can book a secure parking bay for about $27 per night. A car is not necessary though as it's an easy 10-15 min walk into the city centre or a 2 minute walk to a nearby bus stop where there is a bus about every 10 minutes. There are plenty of good food outlets on Parnell Rd and a large Countdown supermarket near the harbour. If feeling enegetic you can walk back to Quest from there but it is uphill part of the way so it's good to use the green or orange buses which run every few minutes. We generally have a 1 bedroom apartment which is a good size and well set out and has a washing machine in the bathroom. The kitchen has a cook top and microwave, dishwasher and full sized fridge whch is very handy if self-catering and staying for a few days. The apartments are very clean and well-maintained and are serviced each day except Sunday. Highly reccommended

After researching many hotels in Auckland, we chose the Quest Parnell. Upon arrival, check in was friendly and quick and we were given our card key with directions for the secure underground parking for $25/day (charged the nightly price when booking back in August – it is now $27/night). Easy and convenient parking. We booked 4 nights in a one bedroom and were given #18. The one bedroom was spacious and very large but also very odd. The kitchen, dining and sitting areas were set up for a business presentation. I think this room is designated for business people. An odd room choice to be given to foreign visitors. The dining table was a large wheeled conference table, there was a ‘whiteboard’ in the corner of the sitting room and a built in pull down screen above the TV. When we walked in, we looked at each other and said this wasn’t acceptable. Returning to reception we were shown another one bedroom unit at the end of the hall once floor up but it was very cramped and small. Given this was our last 4 nights of a 31 day visit on the North Island before flying home, we concurred that even though aesthetically room #18 wasn’t very pleasing, it was spacious. The white board was removed, and we removed the hotel tablecloth from the table and the room wasn’t as bad. Staff were friendly, helpful and try to accommodate. The one bedroom had a full kitchen with a large fridge, oven, cooktop, microwave and dishwasher. I have to say that housekeeping was very thorough and the unit was very clean. I like seeing actual cleaning products being used. I cannot compliment the cleaning staff enough here. There were two bathrooms in the unit, one had a stand-alone shower and the second a bathtub and shower. This bathroom also had a washer and dryer. The bedroom was small so we used luggage racks and placed them in the dining area. This apartment had a large terrace but it faces the courtyard where reception is located. Not a pleasant terrace to spend any time on. A/C worked well, wi fi signal was great. Overall we enjoyed our 4 night stay and we got used to the peculiar furnishings. The location with a car is great. You are outside the downtown but close to the museum and waterfront along with the other areas of the city. The neighbourhood of Parnell has wonderful restaurants and they are all easy to walk to. This was another reason why we chose this hotel as we knew from a previous trip that the restaurants in Parnell are excellent.

Good Morning, We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us at Quest Parnell and all Parnell has to offer. We do find overseas travellers enjoy Rm18 as it gives them the space to store all their luggage and not clutter their bedroom. We will look forward to having you stay again on your next trip to Auckland.
