Ponsonby, Auckland Central

About Ponsonby:

Ponsonby is an inner-city Auckland suburb situated 2 kilometres west of the Auckland CBD in New Zealand's North Island. The suburb is positioned along a ridge running north–south, which is followed by Ponsonby Road, the suburb's main street.

Ponsonby, a largely upper-middle-class residential suburb, is now also renowned in Auckland for its dining and retail establishments – Ponsonby Road is lined with restaurants, cafes, art galleries, up-market stores, and nightclubs.

The Ponsonby suburb had a population of 5,730 people and 2,085 households in the 2018 New Zealand census.

Three Lamps Area

Ponsonby has an area known as Three Lamps, which is situated at the north end of the street. This name is taken from a lamppost from the nineteenth century.

There are other intersections in the UK named Three Lamps for the same purpose, including Crewe and Totterdown in Bristol, which may have inspired the derivation here. There was also a pub of the same name in Swansea, Wales, and one in Macau, China.

Ponsonby Road

Ponsonby Road, which runs the length of the ridge from the Karangahape Road intersection in the south to the Three Lamps intersection in the north, is the suburb's main thoroughfare. Williamson Avenue, Richmond Road, and Franklin Road are the three major intersections along the route.

Local Schools

Marist School and Richmond Road School are primary schools, and St Paul's College is a secondary school. Western Springs College, Auckland Girls' Grammar School, and St Mary's College are nearby secondary schools.

Who wants to visit Néw Zealand?

Hotel Fitzroy is a stunning new luxury hotel that has just opened in the heart of Ponsonby, Auckland New Zealand.

Hosting a few visiting international celebrities in their opening week, this place is going to be a huge success with locals and tourists alike.

We were greeted with warm smiles by the manager Sara and after a delicious welcoming signature spritz tea and paperless check-in we got shown to the Richmond Suite. All the products in the room are eco friendly and sustainable, including the key card. Every room features Dyson hairdryers, Complimentary mini bar, Local and sustainable luxurious bathroom amenities, robe and slippers

Following a quick shopping trip to the nearby Ponsonby Central we settled in for some Complimentary hors d’oeuvres, wine and Gin and tonics in the library with Sarah who really is an amazing host and an asset to the company.

The next morning we awoke to the In-room breakfast served in bed (freshly squeezed orange juice, barista coffee, pancakes, bacon, granola, fruit, croissants)

We’re excited to see such an amazing, bespoke boutique hotel opening up in Ponsonby and look forward to spending another staycation there in the near future.

Thank you fablehotelsandresorts for a perfect stay and can’t wait to see your future projects.

It’s been four great years (even though 2020 wasn’t all roses…)

Little sissy wakes up real early so me and Bish go out walking about 4 hours earlier than we used to. I can tell by the way she doesn’t say much that Bish loves this new routine…
