Nice Views from a perfectly quiet Location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 17, 2008

On our recent trip to Auckland there was no need to book in advance, so we took our chance of getting a good room via www.wotif.com

That is how we got to the Kingsgate Hotel in Parnell. The rack rate is $ 240 but we paid $ 120 for Saturday and only $ 59 !!! for Sunday (special deal if you stay 2 nights and longer).

As we were there in winter and over a long weekend and had plans to drive around quite a bit we hired a car for the whole time, that is the reason for not staying right in the CBD – because the hotels offer great deals on rooms but steep charges for carparking. At the Kingsgate – where they have a big carpark behind the buildings – parking is free.

The location is not perfect but not bad either. First, they have a bus stop right in front of the door. Second, it takes only about 10 minutes to walk to the nicest part of Parnell Village. Third, if you are absolutely not in the mood to lift your a… in the evening you can dine in the hotel’s restaurant at surprisingly moderate prices (clearly below average) or order room service. Coffee and tea making facilities are in the room, like in any other place in NZ. But there is really no other restaurant around – the nearest one is the restaurant of the Barrycourt Motel in the same street, about a 5 min walk. (BTW The Barrycourt is quite a good hotel, and only 5 min from Parnell Village and the Link bus route.)

If you want to walk to the CBD it takes about half an hour. The Vector Arena next to the Old Railway Station is about half way. It is only a 30 seconds drive to Tamaki Drive and the waterfront, Kelly Tarlton’s is just around the corner (and then about 3 km…), and just some seconds more if you walk down there to go for a walk or jogging.

We were quite happy with our accommodation. Although the interior is slightly dated (otherwise you would not get a bathroom with pink tiles and a beige-pinkish vanity unit, the low-flow shower over the bathtub) the room was clean and big, and we had views of the Skytower and the sea. If you get a room to the other side you see the sea and the magnificent Parnell Rose Gardens. Gladstone Road is absolutely quiet, so a good night’s sleep is guaranteed. Huge palm trees surround the two-storey hotel, and the hotel has a nice outdoor swimming pool with deckchairs.

The room had minibar and Sky TV, so we could watch rugby ;-) It was well furnished, with plenty of seats and chairs, table, desk, and plenty of storage. The service was good, including free morning newspaper, and the staff super friendly.
