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!

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.
