We stayed one night in the two older 4-bunk rooms attached to the main block while walking the Abel Tasman track. It suited us well, with the pizzeria open for dinner, and carrying our own breakfasts. The kitchen and the lounge were rough, as noted in other reviews, but the shower/bathrooms were fine.

What a shame, this place screams opportunity but the owners don't seem to care. It may be linked with Awaroa Lodge but they are miles apart! The day we arrived it was raining and as we were tramping we were obviously wet, Barry (a co-manager/owner of both businesses) was very welcoming. He gave us our key and directions to our... More

awaroagm, Manager at Abba Lodge, responded to this review

First of all, ABBA Lodge is simply a basic backpacker standard Lodge. A convenient stopover in the wonderful Awaroa Bay within the Park and only priced $14 more than the local DOC hut.. The facilities available at ABBA are superior to those at DOC hut and these are: Electricity, Hot Showers, normal toilet, large lounge, with internet, TV and phone,... More
