Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A brilliant place to stay. Pillows and bed really comfortable. Spotlessly clean. Room cleaned daily. We stayed for 3 nights and cannot fault it. We also had a very warm welcome from the owners. As I'm disabled they made sure I had a ground floor room.

Highly recommend Avenue Heights! It’s probably the cleanest motel we’ve ever stayed at. It’s newly remodeled so our room felt brand new, and it had lots of space. And it’s very quiet even on a main road. Just a short ride to town and other sites. Danny made us feel so welcome. A delightful find!

Very friendly reception. Room very quiet on ground floor, despite being on busy main road. Very comfortable bed, big room with kitchen facilities and extra single bed. Parking a little cramped but otherwise we would love to stay here again.

Thank you for the review Colleen. All our rooms are bigger than an average motel and we believe this makes it more comfortable for our guests. We have every thing needed for a self sufficient stay or you can go for a short walk into the middle of town. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again. All the best Danny & Nancy

I stay in a lot of motels because of my job. This was with out a doubt my best stay clean friendly and I slept without disruption. The fact it has aircon for me was already a win, so many motels advertise aircon but when you get there a small desk fan is there to great you. The pool was clean and well maintained, close to town so not a problem when finding somewhere to eat Would recommend to fellow reps that are passing through

We stayed here for one night during a sporting event. The room was extremely clean and although basic, was comfortable. The air conditioning and pool were appreciated in the hot weather. The management were friendly and accommodating. An added bonus was the feee continental breakfast. This motel is great value for money.

Thanks for the review. Glad you enjoyed your stay here and the kids enjoyed the amenities available. The park doesn't get mentioned very often but is a great place for kids to burn off excess energy. Hope the rest of your trip goes well and we look forward to seeing again. All the best Danny & Nancy

We stayed at the Avenue Heights Motel for three nights when visiting Northland from the US. The room was impeccably clean and comfortable, and Danny and Nancy were very friendly and helpful. They even surprised us with truffles on Christmas! We will happily stay here again.

I had a two-night stay here during a recent business trip. While the room was very clean, the motel is in a very convenient location, and very good parking facilities are available, I found the traffic noise to be a bit of an issue (ear plugs required to sleep). This is a downside of the motel's location, but double-glazing on the windows would help with this (my unit did not have double-glazing, and closing the windows did not help). Other observations: very friendly and accommodating proprietor, too-soft bed, dated decor.

I stayed at the Avenue Heights Motel for a week. I got a good nights sleep. My room was well looked after and cleaned daily. Off street parking is provided, which was essential for me as I had a work vehicle full of equipment.
