Abel Tasman Motel
Reviewed 16 January 2017

Prior to travelling the Great Alpine Road, we stayed at the AbelTasman.
Very clean, well appointed Motel, starting to show its maturity, however giving beautiful water views, fairly close to the centre of town, and more than friendly staff

Room Tip: First Floor.....Great

The abel tasman has the hall marks of yesteryears hotel motel. Fantastic location directly across from the beach (with a loud highway in between). Unfortunately rooms are a bit worn and tired. And for us during peak season, prices were excessive.

Spotless room with an overall Asian feel. Great view, free wifi access. BBQ area for guest use and very clean swimming pool. Great walks directly out front both into town and to the surf beach. The young host was so pleasant, so nice, and made me feel so comfortable there that i would go back again and again. I'm guessing the other reviews were written before he took over.

Room Tip: Host told me the wifi access is better upstairs.

Great location and 5 minutes walk to the town centre. The property is a little tired and some work has been done in the rooms but more needs to be done to modernise the property. I am glad to be staying for a short time as I dont think my back could handle the bed much longer - very hard and uncomfortable. The rooms are clean and staff are friendly. A 3 star rating with potential to improve further.

I must admit I was impressed, I booked through the trip advisor app, The room I received was large and well appointed for the reasonable price I paid.

This hotel is situated right opposite the water front and was nicely deck out. I do feel I got good value for money. The room had a little kitchenette with a small fridge and microwave and coffee making facility. I enjoyed the fast free wifi and the free car parking.

Only stayed one night but for me ticked a lot of boxes. I would stay here again.

As a Room tip I would get a water looking view.

Stayed: December 2016

On a positive note the rooms are spacious and ours was clean; however this is, unfortunately, the best that can be said about the Abel Tasman. Some efforts have been made to invest in the motel but these have clearly been restricted to new beds, tables and linen. The rooms themselves are significantly outdated with worn tiles and carpets, very old kitchen units, an odd and tired bathroom arrangement and poor lighting. In the bathroom some basic retailing had been done but only partially with poor cut-in to the old tiling. The lobby and public areas are also well-beyond their best. Overall this was very poor value for money and disappointing accommodation. Not recommended.

The Abel Tasman is situated right on the waterfront at Lakes Entrance and the room was very nicely decorated, and came with a fridge and microwave. Short walk or drive to the shops and footbridge to the beach. Pool was very much appreciated on a hot day. Only stayed one night, but was very comfortable here and would definately consider it again. Thanks Abel Tasman!
