Re-opened December 2011, the Ponsonby Manor is a gracious Victorian mansion that’s been completely restored to its former grandeur. Set in the heart of cosmopolitan Ponsonby, the soul of Auckland city, this iconic building is a part of New Zealand’s early settler history. It’s a peaceful retreat from the bustle of Ponsonby road with stunning views of harbour and city. 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. Enjoy a champagne on your balcony then join in the fun immediately across the road at some of Auckland’s well renown restaurants. Afterwards take a short stroll along Ponsonby Road to visit the many bars, cafes and late night retreats that Ponsonby is famous for! There are separate computer stations with laser printer and UNLIMITED FREE broadband that’s fast. Alternatively connect via WiFi throughout. KITCHEN/DINING Clean, sunny, communal kitchen, well-equipped with smart, modern facilities. You will find a good mix of everything needed to cook your meals.
