Land­mark Par­nell Prop­erty


Choice Ho­tels' four-star Qual­ity Ho­tel Bar­rycourt has changed its name to Qual­ity Ho­tel Par­nell to bet­ter re­flect its ge­o­graph­i­cal lo­ca­tion. The 105 room ho­tel has also had a $3.5 mil­lion up­grade in­clud­ing new paint, car­pet and tiles, cli­mate con­trol, up­dated fur­nish­ings and fit­tings, and the lat­est in TV/DVD fa­cil­i­ties.

Sit­u­ated on 3.5 acres of tree-stud­ded grounds on Glad­stone Road in the ex­clu­sive in­ner city sub­urb of Par­nell, Qual­ity Ho­tel Par­nell's rooms show­case ex­pan­sive views over Auck­land's city and har­bour.

The prop­erty pro­vides ex­ten­sive fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing eight sep­a­rate con­fer­ence rooms, the largest of which can cater for 300 at a time. It is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar as a wed­ding venue due to the Par­nell lo­ca­tion and the tree stud­ded grounds.

Most suites have full kitchen fa­cil­i­ties as well as wire­less in­ter­net and SKY TV. Guests can also take ad­van­tage of the 24-hour re­cep­tion, room ser­vice, and the on-site restau­rant, cafe and bar.

Qual­ity Ho­tel Par­nell is within walk­ing dis­tance of the vi­brant and quaint Par­nell Vil­lage and the CBD, a stone's throw to the Auck­land Do­main and Mu­seum, Vec­tor Arena and the shop­ping mecca of Newmarket, mak­ing it a great lo­ca­tion for cor­po­rate or leisure trav­ellers.

The makeover has been taste­ful with ev­ery care taken to en­sure the unique char­ac­ter­is­tics are pre­served in the older parts of the build­ing (dat­ing back to 1905) while ef­fort­lessly com­bin­ing more mod­ern, com­fort­able fit­tings that be­fit the beau­ti­ful, peace­ful sur­rounds.

The prop­erty is unique in that it is owned by the Nor­man FB Barry Foun­da­tion and run as a char­i­ta­ble trust. In­come gen­er­ated by the prop­erty is do­nated to char­ity, and in par­tic­u­lar, a fund is be­ing es­tab­lished to spon­sor a Can­cer Re­search Fel­low at the Auck­land Med­i­cal School.
