    Cute hotel with friendly service. Essentially a classic bed and breakfast. Great location with all of the Ponsonby trendy shops on the doorstep and only a short walk to the CBD and k-rd bars/restaurants.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Good area. Room was converted garden shed, clad in corrugated iron, and was badly sound from adjoining room. No one at any stage introduced or identified themselves. There were no photos any where on-line of the "garden sheds". Some staff were put out if you requested an additional tea bag at breakfast. Outside area, particularly at back was uneven, unfinished, untidy. Garden furniture was rusting. We had to pass the laundry, where the door was always open and in disarray. There was no one to assist with luggage on arrival, this was a problem, particularly if you were allocated to the sheds. All in all very disappointing, and extortionate when you consider the nightly room rate for 5 nights of $285 NZ per night. As there is no on-site manager, or staff to assist on arrival, it is not fair to call this property a B & B, or a hotel. There are no air conditioners in any rooms, nor minifridges in the rooms in the main house. Would not recommend this property to anyone !!!
