The Manor is brand new having been completely renovated. All the rooms are beautifully furnished with a modern fit out against elegant Victorian craftsmanship. Floor to ceiling tiled ensuites throughout, large LCD TV’s … everything is new.

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.

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.
