We were visiting family for a few days in the Burwood area, and found this to be just superb for that purpose.

I stayed at the Abbella for work last month and received an exceptional welcome and service on check in. The units are a good size and were well equipped. The only issue I had was a very noisy fan heater. It was a very cold night and the heater needed to be but the noise was very loud. Panel heaters...

Spacious, clean and comfy.. All that you need is there including a fan for hot summer night, AND a USB charger!!! If you come in from Main North Road, slow down, it's located just passed the cross section of Northcote Road... Easily passed its entrance!
