I enjoyed a 12 night stay in March/April at this motel in a one bedroom unit. I would - indeed, I will - happily return again in the future. The unit was clean and functional, and the bed and furniture comfortable. It was well lit. The bathroom was small, and the shower very sensitive to adjustment - the slightest twitch... More

Some reviews I read here were questionable, but as we are on a budget I booked Abba Gardens for my partner & I are our 1 year old for 2 weekends, as it was a great rate and I had realistic expectations for a motel at such a rate. I knew they would be older style but I was very... More

We recently stayed at the Abba garden motel for one night and the room was freezing. We had a fan heater but it did not heat up the room so we had a very unpleasant nights sleep at a very expensive rate. Although the owners were kind I felt this place was definitely overpriced for what it had to offer.

Booked a two bedroom unit which had double bed in one bedroom and twin single beds in the other. Bed were very comfortable and clean -but twin bedded room only had windows at ceiling height. Double bedded room was facing road so some road noise and easy to hear anyone walking by at night. On the positive side it is... More

No bedside tables, lamps daily servicing was very poor. Very bad wash basin size in the bathroom hard to stand as not enough space in the bath/ toilet. The toilet smelt of dampness if the exhaust fan was turned off. Not a good experience

We'd booked an ordinary room but as the builders were in we were given a flat big enough for several, with complete kitchen and balcony with a lovely view of the chairlift and hillside. The owner was very helpful, giving us information about local food shops and things to do. There is car parking available free of charge. The bathroom... More

Budget style motel in queenstown close to supermarkets and the centre of town. Decor dated, but well maintained and super-clean! Well priced for what you get. Owners ans staff friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend for a budget escape to queenstown
