Abaco On Jervois
Ranked #3 of 65 Hotels in Auckland Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We usually stay in B and B's because of breakfast, but it was hard to find one in Auckland that would give us a reasonable rate for us. We needed two beds. Many B and B's are set up for couples and our adult daughter was travelling with us. Abaco on Jervois was a great value for a couple and another traveller. Pull out sofa was the 2nd bed but that was agreeable and comfortable.

This place provides Free Wifi- (quick dependable), free parking (not just a tiny space off to the side) kitchennette area with kettle, coffee and teas (green, lemon, camoille) milk and great toiletries, towels and linens.

Second best is the location to cafes: Bambino, Chicken on a Wire. Great places to shop. Easy check in and clean accomodations. If you need rooms for a group of people this is a good choice and best to call to see if they can give you a good rate instead of going online.

We stayed a total of 10 nights over three stays here. We loved being in the Ponsonby neighbourhood, out of the tourist area, but easily accessible to downtown Auckland. The bus stop is close by, but we usually walked everywhere. Everyone was friendly, helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble. We stayed in two different studios and both were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchens were the best equipped we had during our 6 weeks in NZ - we could cook, not just heat things up. The wifi was also the best we had during our time in NZ - fast and reliable. We enjoyed our first stay here so much that we didn't bother to see what else was available during our two subsequent visits to Auckland. We would definitely stay here again!

After traveling over 12 hours in the air, Abaco On Jervois was a cozy and clean place to unwind. The room was equipped with a small kitchenette and very nice bathroom. It is located within walking distance of bars and restaurants and is only a short drive from the downtown area. Parking and Wi-Fi was provided which added to the comfort of our stay.

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!
