Very comfortable accommodation, great location, marvellous lounge with fire and best of all, the perfect host. Choice of apartment, lodge or motor camp, Abisko has it all Very much in the central town with great bar and near other bars, restaurants and cafes.
This was a lovely place to camp. Really quiet and peaceful with clean bathrooms and kitchen area. Owner is incredible. I dropped my glasses in the carpark and she posted them back to auckland for me with no issues. Over all just a great place with great hospitality.
I came through the lodge as a Te Araroa (a 3000km trail across NZ) walker meeting up with my parents for a few days. The first kind thing the owners did was allow me to set up my tent beside my parent's camper van for free which was amazing alone. The second thing they did was way above and beyond. One of my hiking poles had broken on the trail and had become useless. The owners, with no thought of reward, offered to try their best to fix it! The next day I picked it up and they had spent hours trying to repair my gear, and it worked! The pole held up in the backcountry for a few more days which was exactly what I needed. I can't recommend this lodge enough, they will take care of you!
I stayed this accommodation for two nights - booked via Agoda with my Amex card and it says total charge includes taxes and fees. I understand some hotels charge credit card fee however I was always informed before this is charged. This was quite annoying when I noticed they charged me extra - presumably credit card fee? - it is still being investigated. Room was very very dated. There was no toiletries in the bathroom. Heater is very loud when turned on and I wasn't sure if the smoke smell comes from the outside or from the heater. I had to turn it off even though it was freezing. WIFI: you will be given 200mb voucher when you check in. You will have to pay for your internet after that. Overall I did NOT enjoy this accommodation at all. I would not recommend this accommodation.…
This place is run by the most friendliest people ever! The were very accommodating and the continental brekkie was top notch (pikelets, crossaints, cereal, English muffins). They also have a great chill out area and a spa! The rooms were nice and clean, with comfy beds. Only minor issue was that the heater was quite loud. Our room was fairly warm anyway so didnt need it on.
