Lovely place to stay

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 Mar 2020
We arrived in the early hours and already had advice on how to get into our room. We were given an upstairs room which we had requested. It was a good size with a small table and 2 chairs as well as the bed and large TV with sky box. There was no air movement through the room so we needed the ac. The bathroom was large with a jet tub and shower over it, plenty of towels and manuka honey toiletries. The kitchen area had a box with a selection of teas, coffees and hot chocolate, there was an oven, microwave, kettle etc, plenty of options for catering in if necessary. The staff was friendly and helpful, they even let us stay an extra hour when our motor home was not going to be ready as early as we wanted.
It is in a good location for eateries in the Ponsonby area and took us about 40 mins to walk into the city centre along a very interesting route, mostly downhill. As this was our first accommodation at the start of our one month trip to New Zealand it was a reassuring start.

Stayed before boarding cruise ship. Was convenient to get to port as well as close to restaurants and some shopping if you wanted. Places of interest within walking distance as well. Rooms fairly good size. Beds were fairly comfy. Staff very helpful. All you need for a comfy stay. Would stay again.

We stayed at the Abaco on Jervois on the last night of our short holiday on the North Island. The room was clean and spacious with ample facilities for cooking. Okay it was a suite but we have stayed in suites where you would have given a cat brain damage if you had swung it. This room would be ideal for someone staying for an extended period. There was plenty of free parking which is a bonus in Auckland.

The Abaco is ideally located close to restaurants and bars so getting a meal was not an issue. It is an expensive area though so some online research is in order if you are counting the pennies.

The room was also quiet which was a surprise given that it is on a major road. There room needs a little TLC as there were a couple of minor cosmetic issues that need attention. I really am at a loss as to the lack of respect people show for hotel rooms. You are renting the room, not buying it. Still, the room was super comfortable and we would stay at Abaco again if we return to Auckland.

Lovely clean room with a well appointed kitchenette. Lovely proprietor! Handy location to have a wander into ponsonby for shopping or coffee or a meal. Walk to the city if you’re feeling energetic! Wish we’d found this place on one of our previous trips - we will be back!

We stayed for one night in a standard studio on the ground floor. Room was very comfortable and spotless with a little kitchenette. Free offstreet parking and right beside a garage to fill up your hire car on the way to the airport. Few restaurants across the road for meals, Dida had great tapas and is a wine and whiskey bar. Motel is a very short walk from a bus stop into town (very frequent) and about 3 blocks when getting back off the bus. Hoping off the bus you are in the shopping street with some cafes as well. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed here with our 2 kids aged 4 and 6. The place was clean and well equipped. Fully serviced and Sky TV was a bonus. The area it is in is beautiful and the streets have a good vibe. Central for visiting the skytower or the harbour. We'd stay again.
