Mollies Luxury Boutique Hotel
St. Mary's Bay, Auckland, New Zealand
Every room is different and the entire house is a very magical place featuring incredible flowers and decor.
It is a delight to find a luxurious city haven different to that of a large hotel. Mollies is such a breath of fresh air! It has a gabled Victorian facade which is a tell tale clue of the uniqueness.
Mollies is no museum, it is a property full of life in a musical ambience that can only come from the collaboration of talented husband and wife team, Stephen and Frances. She was a concert pianist and teacher of aspiring opera singers; he designed opera sets and was an antique dealer. The Inn is full of their personal treasures and the resulting in a exciting and memorable stay where the ambiance of the hotel is unforgettable.
Eating at Mollies is a delight. They are known for incredible table settings that are changed each evening by the talented staff of the hotel. They have become known as "Tablescapes". The hotel is lit by candlelight at night and is a very romantic setting. During dinner, the staff break out into opera and sing for the guests. These are very talented performers who receive coaching from the owner, Frances, who is one of the leading opera singing coaches in New Zealand. Breakfast is an event with a wonderful menu and a light and airy setting for breakfast complete with great flower arrangements.
The rooms are incredible. There are no small rooms here. Every room has a big lounge area along with the bedroom and many have a small kitchen area. These are like small apartments, not rooms. The decor is incredible and each room has its own character. Many of the rooms have a fireplace and you return to the room after dinner to dimmed lights and the fireplace crackling. It is a magical place. The bathrooms are very modern with every convenience being considered to make you 100% comfortable.

Mollies has an incredible garden that is available to the guests. Some of the downstairs rooms open right onto the gardens and the walkways to the upstairs rooms look over the flowers and trees.
During our visit the spa was being expanded, so it is now a large spa with several treatments rooms. As with everything at Mollies being special, I am sure this new spa is magnificent.
Mollies is a harmony of nostalgia. A state-of-the-art sanctuary within close proximity to the city centre and in easy strolling distance of some of the city's best dining establishments
