Come and stay at the Great Ponsonby, a delightful small hotel providing bed & breakfast in Auckland. Just two minutes stroll to Ponsonby's vibrant cafes, bistros, restaurants, art and craft galleries and just five minutes by taxi to the harbour and the city centre.
Our breakfasts are legendary--friendships have been forged in the dining room, egg benedict lingered over on the verandah.
Ten rooms of varying size and price. All rooms have everything you could need and all have modern New Zealand and Pacific artworks. Courtyard studios are much bigger than the villas and the spacious suites and penthouse are over twice as large again.
Our sitting room is a place to read, listen to our extensive CD collection or have a drink with friends. There is no tv. The tvs are watched in the privacy of your own room. We also have an extensive collection of mainly NZ films.
Ponsonby, an urban village, is one of the earliest areas of Auckland and luckily many of the historic buildings still remain. It is also the trendiest part of town, a place where Aucklanders come to eat, to drink coffee and to have fun. It is also very close to the city centre. So, the Great Ponsonby, set in a large, beautiful garden is in the most perfect place from which to explore Auckland.
Your hosts Sally and Gerry have been committed to the environment and heritage buildings most of their lives. They are active in the community and have been involved in, and sometimes instrumental in saving heritage buildings in their community.

Great Ponsonby was the first accommodation provider in NZ to extensively use eco products for guest amenities, laundry and for cleaning and the first Guest & Hosted to achieve an Enviro Gold award.
