The room and the bathroom were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped. The location of this hotel is very good. Parking is easy and free of charge. The atmosphere is relatively friendly.

Furnished to a very high standard, we stayed two nights and made use of the beach towels for a trip to Abel Tasman National Park. Spacious too. Friendly staff, a great place to stop. Visited February two thousand and fourteen

Maybe it was our exhaustion, but the bed was really comfortable, the room was very clean and well cared for and we'd definitely stay here for longer than a night in the future. I can't attest to the hospitality since I never interacted with any of the reception staff, but my husband didn't mention anything, so there's no complaints. We... More

Very clean, large and well equipped and maintained motel room. Probably the best we had on our 3 week NZ tour. Owner also works for Abel Tasman water taxi co so had some v good advice on that. On the pricier side vs other motels we used, but worth it.

The negatives: The briskness on reception, Felt like it was an inconvenience to be there, marched ahead of us to room, told us she normally checks the rooms over but "I can't be everywhere at once" and left.

The Avalon is very well-maintained, clean and comfortable with lots of extras….laundry, outside drying line in addition to dryers, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable seating and lights bright enough for reading, free wi-fi and quite roomy. Quite a bit of street noise was the only drawback.

We had a nice apartment with two bedrooms during two nights. Well located to visit the Abel Tasman Park. Friendly owners. Apartment in very good condition. Free DVDs available, very useful with kids. Wifi in the room, not very costly (5$)
