The place was clean and tidy and the plus is that the bedroom and bathroom are spacious. The kitchen is well stocked if you need it and there is a couple of good places to eat just across the road and many others a short walk away. There also is parking.

Date of stay: October 2018

Nice to find a place near central Auckland that had everything we wanted. A two bedroom "apartment," within walking distance of shops, restaurants and bars, free parking, and a reasonable price -- $168 US (Divided by our 3 adults that was $56 -- very affordable). Check in was easy and the owners were friendly.

Check in process was a little confusing. We couldn’t get the Wi-fi to work at all during our stay, when we tried to contact the front desk, no one was available. The management here was very unhelpful. I would not stay here again.

Hi Paula, thank you for your review; we appreciate your feedback. Apologies your stay was not as you had hoped for. We have not had any problems with our Wi-fi connection recently and there is always somebody on-site 24/7 that can be reached via the phone in your room, pressing the doorbell in the office or (if needed between the hours of 8 pm and 8 am) by using the night intercom outside reception. Suggestions on how the check-in process can be improved are always welcome via our email address at contact@abaco.co.nz

Pros: fantastic location, accomodating staff
Cons: some things didn’t work ( TV, lamp etc) beds in downstairs room very old and tired = bad sleep BUT once I spoke to reception we were moved to a much better room with no problem at all
Tip: do not book a downstairs room as you can here the guests above all night, a top level room is the only way to go but no lift up many stairs, great view

This was the best place we stayed at on the north island. Clean, spacious, comfortable, well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds and pillows. Although being on a main road, the room we were in was nice and quiet and you couldn’t hear the traffic. Parking was a little tight, especially for a larger 4WD however it wasn’t too busy the nights we were there which helped.
There were noisy people smoking and drinking outside of their rooms down from us which was disappointing, but there are some people out there that are just inconsiderate. This motel deserves all the good reviews it gets and the high rating. Would definitely stay here again.
