Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for one night on a business trip, rooms were very modern and new, minor issue with water pressure but wasn't really a problem. Relatively short walk (1km) to a few restaurants and pubs. Staff were friendly and courteous. Would stay here again for sure.

I'm a bit confused about this place. It ticks the boxes in that it was very clean, modern and spacious, with the kids having their own separate bedroom in the suite. But it wasn't our best experience. It's in an odd part of town, away from the main drag, right near a caravan park and we had people shouting and a dog barking all night long, not the hotel's fault obviously. Then there was apparently a mixup with keys and we were woken early in the morning by the cleaning lady barging in, only to be followed about an hour later by another employee barging in and apologising he was in the wrong place. Not great. Then we went to cook breakfast as it had a kitchenette only to find there was no toaster and when we went to reception they said the rooms don't have toasters anymore ... probably because when we cooked one piece of bread it set the smoke alarms off and they kept on going off until we just gave up and checked out. So it was definitely a strange experience and I'm not sure I'd go back again cos the clean modern room isn't the only thing that makes a good stay ....

Reasonable sized room that is spotless. Great shower. Handy kitchenette with good size fridge, microwave, cooktop and sink. Very friendly checkin staff. Comfy beds but only 1 extra pillow for 2 people. Nice modern decor.

Greeted by Managers Daryl & Glenda in a way which said "welcome". Our room was absolutely outstanding. Modern, comfortable, kitchenette, large bath room, leather lounge and chairs, coffee machine; I could go on but, value for money and experience just "outstanding."

My wife and I have stayed in accommodation in many countries and would be hard-pressed to find better all-round facilities, location and service. Not too often do you find your own in-room coffee machine. The lack of comfortable seating, which is the bane of most Motel accommodation, is pleasantly overcome at Abode37 by the provision of a plush leather lounge and very comfortable kitchen chairs. Daryl and Glenda made our stay most comfortable and pleasant. The quiet location belies the fact that it is so close to the main town centre. We came to the conclusion that we'd drive through other places to stay at Abode37. To top it all off - you've got to try an Abode37 breakfast!.

We had travelled from Darwin on a no rush sight seeing trip and had good experiences at all but one of our overnight stops. This one was right up there as one of the best, room was modern, spotlessly clean and spacious with all mod cons. The couple in charge were really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and reasonably priced and the location was just a short walk from the town. Highly recommended.

We booked this motel from the website and we were so pleased that what was on the website was true and not fabricated as many are. The motel was new and very comfortable - we loved our early morning coffee. We enjoyed a very restful sleep in darkened rooms with no lights shining in or traffic rumbling past. The staff and owners were friendly and helpful and welcoming. This place added to the enjoyment of our road trip and we would totally recommend this as a place to stay.
