Travellers' Choice
Ava Lodge motel opened in 2014. Feeling more like a small hotel than a typical motel, Ava Lodge offers twenty thoughtfully detailed suites and apartments, catering to business people and tourists alike. The goal was to provide guests with an exceptional experience of comfort, quietness and security within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where they feel at home. The building is striking with bold and quirky colours surrounded by lavish landscaping and less than a minutes walk from restaurants, cafes and boutique shopping opportunities of Jackson Street.

Lovely hosts but the motel is starting to look a but tired, really needs a refit to modernise and update the interior. Couches are worn and the table and chairs are very dated. Bedding also needs to be improved

Response from Ava Lodge, General Manager at Ava Lodge
Responded 24 Mar 2021
Hi, Thanks for the review, but I confess it has taken me by surprise. Our motel is just 6 years old and your comments are so opposite to the reviews below such as : "the building looks nearly new and the rooms were immaculate". We are the newest, most modern motel in the Hutt Valley and we have a large and loyal customer base. I am struggling to imagine any motel doing a "re-fit and modernise" after only 6 years. We are proud of the design and amenities of this building and our regular corporate guests book months ahead. If you would like to email me directly at info@avalodge.co.nz, I would be very interested to know which room you stayed in and which dates. Thanks and regards. Alison

Excellent and very accomodating hosts. Owner let me look at the different rooms available and helped me choose which room was suitable for my needs. Rooms are clean, well equipped and serviced daily. Bonus was having all the Sky channels available. The bed was a bit soft for my liking. Still an enjoyable stay.

We stayed here for a week on a previous visit and again on this visit. It was excellent and difficult to fault. The rooms are clean, with plenty of space. The wifi is very good. The service is also excellent.
