“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

Super clean, nice quality linen, helpful staff and nice modern decor. We had the one bed exec suite. Room a nice size. No fuss with early check in at 1 pm. Our friend we booked for was upgraded to the one bed spa, which was a good size also.

We have stayed at the Aveda, twice over the last few years. Definitely would recommend this motel.
It is very modern, comfortable and safe.
Really the only decent place to stay in Pukekohe.
We arrived after hours and also had an extra family member stay with us. The staff were very obliging and helpful regarding this. Thank you !!! :-)

My wife and I were attending a conference in Pukekohe, and decided to stay over for one night. The executive studio was $145 for the Friday night. Parking was good, and secure. The lady at reception was very nice, and offered us milk for our coffee. If we wanted breakfast, a limited menu is available and delivered the night before - we gave this a miss. The room compendium was very comprehensive, with lots of information on local eateries and things to do.
Sky TV had the full package of sport and movies. WiFi was not complimentary, and 500MB cost. $7 and 700 MB cost $10 - I wish New Zealand motels got "with it" and provided free WiFi like most of the rest of the world.
The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. We slept well when the train wasn't roaring by!
A pretty reasonable place to stay.

we stayed at Aveda Motor lodge as part of a conference group and it was lovely and clean, well appointed, well set out, and the staff were positive, helpful and I would definitely recommend this place to stay at. A fifteen minute walk to the township.

We had booked the Pukekohe motel that is over the road from here, but after one night we moved to the Aveda as it was so dirty and shabby.

The beds were not split on arrival but they were quickly split as we waited. Blankets and duvets felt new and luxurious. The whole place is quite new looking and furnished to a high standard. I would guess that it was recently renovated. Two beds in the main studio area with a small dining table and kitchenette with a microwave and fridge. There wasn't a freezer if I remember correctly as I remember throwing half a tub of ice cream away.

Its a fairly long walk into town but a short drive. There is a convenience store just up the road if you need a few bits.

Wifi is $7.50 per day for up to 1000gb, additional charges for extra. Free guest laundry.

Booked in here by my work I was a little skeptical of what I would find but was really, really impressed with both the service and the room. I was on the top floor (only two floors) and found it very clean, modern, roomy and was located just far enough out of town that you had a quick ride in but no noise.
The whole complex looks like it has recently been refurbished and the large kitchenette in my room was well set up and well stocked.
The bed was one of the most comfortable I have come across in my travels, and combined with the free digital channels and big, flat screen TV I hardly wanted to leave the room!
They also have laundry facilities for those needing to wash while they are away.
Would highly recommend for anyone wanting a comfortable, clean and pleasant stay - very good value.

Room Tip: Unlike most 'motel' type set ups the doors don't bang when you shut them so most rooms w...

I have to share with other travellers that seems to be the most modern and comfortable motel in Pukekohe. It's about 10 minutes walk from the centre of town but only a moment to drive if you have a car. The rooms are modern with flat screen televisions and heat pumps. The units are equipped with in room safes.
The décor is neutral shades. The beds are comfortable and modern duvet covers are provided to add extra warmth. On this trip I stayed in a ground level studio. WiFi is available for a fee if you require it.
There is ample car parking to cater for the motel guests.
The new owners of Aveda are friendly and welcoming.
