We stayed for two nights and we liked this hotel very much. It is quite close to Wellington and also very close to many restaurants and the beach. Our studio was of good size, well equipped and very clean.

Very modern and spacious with quiet, clean, tastefully decorated rooms. Good blockout curtains. Quiet location close to shops and beach. Good security
Only negative was the limited bench space in the bathroom.

Ava lodge has reasonable accomodation in an excellent location. We were not familiar with Welliington and found the Petone area very good for getting breakfast. Parking in Welliington is very difficult (It's against my "religion" to pay for parking). There is a bus stop a few metres from the hotel with busses that go into Wellington. There is also the option to take a ferry into Wellington but we did not have time. The people on reception were lovely, very friendly.

We stayed here a couple of nights on our road trip around the north island of New Zealand as a reasonable alternative to inner city Wellington. We were greeted at check in warmly and got all our questions answered and more. Really nice clean modern facility, with easy parking, walkable to many restaurants(a short block to the end/start of Jackson Street which is were most of the business in Petone are located. A really short drive to all the rest, we shopped at Pak n Save for dinner items at the other end of Jackson Street, since we where tired and it was easy to do our own dinner in such a nice room. Use of the washer/dryer free, available from morning till 9pm. One word of caution, there is quite a bit of morning rush hour traffic if you are headed into Wellington between 7-9 am, so if you can avoid those times, it's under 15 minutes into the inner city, At rush hour, it could take an hour or more. Even with that we would definitely stay here again.

Was stranded in Wellington overnight as a result of Jetstar not being able to land in fog - all hotels in the inner city were booked out so our options were sparse. We ended up booking into Ava Lodge - the owners were wonderful to deal with - even supplying me with a phone charger and toothbrush/toothpaste. The accommodation is 5 star - super comfy bed and pillows - an unfortunate day evening that ended positively through the kindness of the owners - well worth the 12k taxi ride from the city
