Service was awesome from reception staff. Room was spacious for my fiance and I. Well equipped kitchen and bathroom was roomy. Location was perfect too espc for those who don't want to travel too far to get into the CBD but not be right in the middle of the city because of congestion, foot traffic etc. WiFi was surprisingly fast for a hotel in comparison to other CBD hotels I've stayed in, which was good. The only complaints I'd have is the noise, I felt like we had the windows open the whole night because we could clearly hear everything from outside. Also, the $20 parking fee is a bit excessive but to keep my car safe in town I had to pay. Would still stay here again.

Stayed 2 nights here. While the staff were friendly and the rooms clean, we found the first night noisy with trucks. The second night (Friday) the local hoons decided hold a very noisy meet choking the surrounding streets with extremely noisy cars. On a positive note it is not a long walk to the CBD. Ratatouille

Haven't stayed here yet but word of warning for corporate guests.... The accommodation is paid for by my employer but they want personal credit card and ID supplied prior to the visit - in case I have a party and trash the room !!! Wouldn't be staying here if I could get out of it......bureaucracy gone mad.

My husband and I stayed at Quest Carlaw Park mid May as we were delivering a full day course at the Auckland Conference Centre. The conference centre is right across the road from Quest Carlaw. The one bedroom apartment met our needs. It was reasonably priced and, you can cook or heat meals in the unit.We made full use of the washing machine and dryer while we were there. The room was serviced before 10am, which we appreciated. The room was very clean with good furnishings. We weren't so impressed with the two cafes that were closest to Quest Carlaw, but it is only a five to ten minute walk to the Parnell village, where there is a vast range of cafes and restaurants. The reception staff were cordial but you could hardly expect them to really go out of their way as you are not staying in a five star hotel. I would certainly stay at Quest Carlaw when working at the conference centre.

Handy to university. Easy parking. Good for business people. The student village is very close by. I am guessing that is why they provide complementary earplugs .... which I didn't need at all on the Friday night I stayed there

I have been using this hotel on and off for a couple of years and it is far and away my preferred apartment hotel in Auckland. The staff are friendly but not intrusive. The apartments are more spacious than in others nearby, with good lighting and ample supplies and they are always spotlessly clean. The little extras--good quality toiletries, little snack, ice in freezer--contribute to a sense of welcome. It's beginning to get a tiny bit shabby, but this will not stop me choosing it over others in future. If all hotels were this good, I would be a happy traveller.

This is not a top hotel but it is very good for the price you pay here. Extremely tidy and clean reception area the room was small but comfortable and did not feel too dated at all. If you need a kitchen this would be all you require. Nice big full length window and I appreciated the full length mirror too. Perfect location for us and just a $6 uber to to the power station. Would stay again. Free WIFI

Rooms are lovely. Bed is fantastic and the kitchenette has everything you need. Very clean and just tge loveliest staff at the front desk. Very helpful. Rooms were a little noisy being a Friday night however ear plugs were provided if you wanted them. Car park was right next door.

Located in a private street, in between Auckland central and Parnell. Near the tennis stadium and not far from the university of Auckland. All are within walking distance. Central auckalnd is a good 15-20 minute walk, as is the university the other way. Good apartment rooms, has everything you need. Very private and quite area. Parking available for a charge if needed. Rooms are well designed with a nice decor. We had accessible room which was well designed. Very impressed with the staff. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed 2 nights in a studio room - the room itself was compact but was really comfortable and had everything we needed. Great wee kitchen and washing machine/drier would be handy for longer stays. 20min walk from Queen St

15 Nicholls Lane Auckland
