Have stayed here a few times when working nearby. Kitchen facilities include stove top as well as a microwave, so with a supermarket up the road from which to get supplies, you can be self-sufficient. Everything is neat and comfortable. Bathroom fans aren't the most efficient, but that's no big deal.

We stayed for 2 nights on 3rd and 4th of March 2014 in a 2 bedroom unit. My parents were staying with us for the last days of their NZ holiday and we were all SO impressed with this motel. The rooms were spacious and beautifully clean and modern with all the amenities you could need. I am very fussy... More

I stayed 2 nights over a week at Abbella Lodge Motel. The owners were amazing! Had a lovely chat with both and what genuinely lovely people. The motel complex is easy to find, the rooms are spacious, clean, reasonably priced and well set out and the spa OMG so nice to relax in after a stressful time on the road... More

We stayed here for 2 nights 2nd and 3rd November 2013. Rooms were lovely, spotlessly clean, well-equipped kitchen, big TV with movie channels. We requested a back room and was given that. Beds very comfy and warm. Friendly reception staff, couldn't have asked for more. We were very happy here and would definitely stay there again.

Although I only stayed one night, the booking process done over the phone was relatively easy. I got a quick response by email to confirm everything and I was all set. The room was spacious and all of the expected facilities were there. The bed was comfortable but there were 2 stand out obversations that made a point of difference... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Abbella Lodge and were very happy with our stay. Stayed there with a 3 year old and found the place to be very clean and tidy. I was very happy with the standard of the room and the price. The owners went out of their way to help us in an hour of need... More

we stayed one night at Abbella Lodge. We got a nice room upstairs, as we requested. Our king size bed was very comfortable and staff very helpful. All was clean and we would stay here again. Location is good, too.

We stayed 2 nights and found the room to be very well equipped with a separate bathroom and kitchen. It was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The location was good - just a short drive to restaurants, shops and the CBD.
