Spacious, clean and comfy.. All that you need is there including a fan for hot summer night, AND a USB charger!!! If you come in from Main North Road, slow down, it's located just passed the cross section of Northcote Road... Easily passed its entrance!

Very clean and well equipped studio room. Large king bed, sky tv channels on a good sized television and good sized kitchen with kettle/toaster and full cooking utilities. Our studio room had a spa bath in the bathroom on the second floor. No outside room as such but perfect for our weekend away. Good location, not too far away but... More

We spent two nights at Abbella, and of all of the hotels we stayed at in the South Island, Abbella had the most comfortable beds. Room decor was new, clean and modern. In the family rooms the spa tub was a nice touch.

Very friendly family-run business. Nothing was too much trouble. There was cable tv, help with out sightseeing, free dvds, playing cards, and the room was spotless. Good idea to include a couple of hot plates as well as the microwave. Would definitely stay there next time I visit Christchurch.

This accommodation has nice rooms. They are spacious and have a bath with water jets. Unfortunately we didn't use it. The rooms are really clean and the kitchen is good equipped. The rooms are recently furnished.
