These was our first 3 nights in Auckland having just arrived in NZ. Abaco was perfectly positioned for us on the edge of the trendy Ponsonby area. Good for eating out on The Ponsonby Road or walking into the city centre (30 mins downhill). Loved the atmosphere in this area and the motel was ideal for free car parking and WiFi to get our bearings and not have to worry about the hire car. Didn’t need to use public transport at all during our stay. Good supermarket (New World) 15 mins down the hill. Good facilities for cooking at home - which we did on one evening as we were so shattered from the flight and needed a night in to chill. Motel facilities were good and not too much road noise. A few of the lights needed mending in the apartment and we couldn’t get the TV in the bedroom to work - just minor details and didn’t upset our stay but attention to detail is important and other customers may not be quite so relaxed..... Overall totally recommend this place for a good alround well priced, clean and well-equipped stopover.

Stayed one night in this very clean, well appointed studio room.
Parking was available, took last space!
The room was tastefully decorated and planned out to make the most of the space. Small kitchen area with complementary milk, coffee etc.
The area was close enough to Central Auckland and in the Ponsonby area, restaurant, cafes and shops in walking distance.
I would recommend this accommodation.

This is a great place. We booked here based on the other great reviews. Rooms are immaculately clean and extremely easy to get around being just an ear shot off downtown. The neighborhood is cool with many great restaurants. We walked to both Swashbucklers and Mekong Baby and there was a great wine and beer shop across the street. Shelley at check in was fantastic and went above and beyond to make sure our honeymoon got off to a great start. Highly recommend this property!

A lovely motel nicely situated out of the city in the Ponsonby area. The staff were welcoming and the unit itself was superb, a fair size and with a kitchen area and shower room. It was very clean and well suited our needs for the two nightlys we were there. We did walk into the city, which was quite easy but coming back is all up hill and a bit much for two totally unfit old fogies.
Our only gripe was that at night there were no lights outside. A bit dangerous as the drive itself is a bit uneven.
The Ponsonby area itself is very nice with a number of shops and eateries. We had a nice lunch in Turkish restaurant and lovely coffee and cake in Dida's across the road.
I would highly recommend the Abaco.
