Grey Lynn Hotel & Accommodation

This free-spirited inner south-west Auckland suburb is only three clicks from the CBD. It's got quite a few pre-WWI buildings to its name, none more locally famous than Allendale (an Italianate mansion, built 1890). Grey Lynn Farmers' Market's worth a gander (Sunday mornings 9 am – 12:30 pm at Grey Lynn Community Centre). Getting to Queen Street takes a smidgin over 10 minutes, and when you arrive you're near Sky Tower, Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland City Hall and more. Grade A Grey Lynn bargains. Bag one below.
