In the Heart

of all the action

Centrally located, everything is close by

Staying at Ponsonby Manor is an experience in New Zealand’s Victorian heritage alongside modern day amenities and a classy fit-out with the latest in technology and furnishings. We know just what travellers look for, and that small details are important.

Socialise on the deck at any time, or over breakfast alfresco in the courtyards. Prepare your food in the well-appointed kitchen. If you prefer some privacy after a day’s exploration, find a spot in the sun where you can ponder life over a coffee, lost in the lovely garden. On warm evenings, restore your spirit in a secret corner amongst the greenery with soft lantern lights and soothing background music. And when it’s cool outside, the house is always warm and cosy.

The feeling of being somewhere special carries through to the bedrooms, which have been decorated with an eye for simple comfort with a touch of class. They are comfortable and secure, whether in the main building or tucked away in the garden.

The Ponsonby Manor is located right on Ponsonby Road, Auckland’s eclectic inner-city community where residents and visitors shop and relax, work and play. It is set amongst leafy streets lined with historic timber houses and peopled by a great cross-section of New Zealanders. The bus outside our door will take you to the city centre and waterfront in just 7 minutes.

“Wow! Why Stay Anywhere Else in Auckland?”

After two weeks of great experiences in New Zealand, we were pretty skeptical that anything in big-city Auckland could match up. We were wrong.

Fantastic place to stay either on your own or with another. Ponsonby Manor is very clean and fresh with elegant surroundings and close to city.

“The perfect stay!”

We stayed at the Manor for a few months and we were very sad to leave! I strongly recommend this guest-house if you come to New Zealand for the first time.
