“Clean & comfortable”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

This is a good, secure place to stay. It has good sized bathroom with good quality linens.
The bed & pillows are comfortable. Has kitchen facilities. Good lighting and a smallish table- though no coffee table. NB Our room had no air-con, just a fan so could get pretty hot on a sunny day I think.
Furnishings are good, although the reception area is pretty sterile. The pool is outside and smallish and pretty utilitarian in terms of surroundings. There are quite a few shops nearby- and a wide range of average restaurants close by. A good place to stay for business people. Close to motorway too. You can park in the basement and it feels safe there-take a lift upstairs. There is a funny little trolley available to transport your luggage up. Or park right outside reception area.

Room Tip: The pool is nothing special but would be nice to be poolside if it was mid summer and you had kids w...

Really nice motel, very clean and service fantastic. The owner/man is lovely and welcoming and I really like the lolly jar on reception! Bed was fantastically comfy and pillows awesome. Quite a big room I have to say for two of us. Great area, lots of food places around. Wandered down to one on the Saturday night. Would def return and highly recommend this place.

Just stayed for four days at Aristotles North Shore. We received a very friendly welcome. The room was a good size, so lovely, clean neat and tidy. The motel is central to the motorways heading North or South. Restaurants all close by, plus good parking for our cars at the Motel. The bed and the pillows were extremely comfortable in our room and had the best nights sleep! Enjoyed the conveniences in the room with the little extras of the Coffee plunger and biscuits. Will happily stay again as we have business and our family living in Auckland.

Every time that we need to be in Auckland we book a studio at Aristotle, or a family room if we take our teenagers. Every time we get the same warm welcome from Mairee and Dave.
The motel is very clean, the rooms are comfortable and staff is very friendly. Parking is ideal too.
Heaps of shops and restaurants nearby, and even the cinema at walking distance.
We hope to return frequently!

This was a great place to stay - very clean, well fitted out, comfortable. They didn't charge for the use of a pull-out sofa for a pre-schooler. All very efficient. Would gladly stay there again.

We stayed at Aristotles when visiting family nearby. The motel was easy to find, and although it is set at the end of a large retail area (Wairau Park) I was surprised at how quiet the rooms were.

Very friendly manager checked us in and outlined the property. We had booked two Executive Suites - one for us and our 3 month old; one for family with two young children. They were both set-up as requested i.e. cot for us and sofa bed made up for the kids.

Everything was spotless and well maintained. Well appointed with air con and LCD TVs, plus TV in bedroom. Spa bath in bathroom, large king bed.

The rooms have interior corridors and you can park underneath and take a lift to rooms. There is a pool which we didn't use (was raining) but looked inviting and I imagine would have been well used if we were staying longer.

We'd definitely stay here again when visiting North Shore.
