“Awesome place and value”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Stayed here for 2 days as we started our journey through New Zealand and this place was great. Check-in was quick and everything was ready. Room was very clean and the bed was really comfortable. Bathroom was really nice, internet connection was quick and steady and no restrictions on usage! The best thing for me was that there was free parking at the hotel as Auckland parking is a pain. Location was great as many restaurants were nearby and it was less than 10 minute drive to downtown, there is also a convenience store right next door which makes it handy for snacks and drinks.

Room Tip: We stayed in the studio room on the first floor. I found it very nice that it had a parking space ri...

We booked x 4 rooms at Abaco as we were going to Auckland for a family function. On arrival the reception was friendly and well organised. The rooms were roomy, clean and very functional (thank you for our free upgrade on one of the rooms :) ) The location is fantastic. Great to be able to pop across the road to the café / shops. We would DEFINATELY recommend this accommodation and would love the opportunity to return for another great stay. Thank you so much Abaco! x

I can understand why the property rates well. Rooms are comfortable. Location is great for access to city and Ponsonby. Bathrooms large. Room clean and well maintained. For me though, I would expect double glazed windows for $155 per night. Sorry to be critical on this point but I was in a room on the top floor which seemed to catch all the Jervois Rd noise (a main thoroughfare busy up to 11pm and from 6am) through the small door off the kitchenette. Perhaps if a better sealed noise reduction door could be used instead? I have no complaints apart from this and mention it purely to advise people to perhaps request a lower room away from the road. The view from the balcony across to the city is stunning at night.

Room Tip: If road noise worries you suggest you request a lower level room away from the road.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend. It was a beautiful motel. When we arrived they had our keys and a welcome note ready for us. As we arrived late this was easy and quick! The rooms are very cute with a gorgeous bathroom and kitchen with plenty of tea, coffee and milo, perfect for coming home late from a day of exploring.

Only a five minute drive down to the viaduct and a short walk to Ponsonby Road. Would definitely stay here again!

Here in Ponsonby for a training course, the Abaco is extremely well located. Next to service station and bus stop, walking distance to restaurants, even the library is around the corner. Friendly service, free wi-fi, free national calls, lots of Sky channels, clean, modern rooms... it has a lot of pluses.

On the downside, a slight buzzing from power box, tight parking.
