As we visit our student children in Auckland regularly, the Aristotle Motel is our preferred stay. We always feel truly welcome as Dave and Maree show their appreciation for returning guests. As always, our room was spotlessly clean and the service top. Their housekeeping staff is always friendly and everyone seems to be in a good mood, even on early... More

We arrived and, were met by manager Maree. Friendliest welcome on our New Zealand trip. The room was large and a bit outdated, however was clean and spotless. What impressed us the most was the next day as we were checking out we observed one of the most engaging and happy staff from the managers to housekeeping. Everyone appeared to... More

Nice welcome and clean rooms held this motel to average rating.Was close to 'poor' due to it being a little tired. Big plus however is it's cleanliness and friendly welcoming people. A good example of a '70s' motel in the suburbs doing better than others due to good, caring management by owners.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was confident that this would be a good place to stay. Firstly, the staff are very friendly, and made you feel welcome. However, we were told after booking a cooked breakfast on-line, that they do not do cooked breakfasts on weekends. We were a little disappointed, as this is always a treat... More

One can never be sure what a place is going to be like unless you experience for yourself. But after doing a lot of online research and reading the favourable reviews Aristotles looked promising. I'd phoned motels and inns closer to my wife's medical appointment, but only Aristotles offered airconditioning - although the proprietor of the City of Sails did... More

What a great stay we had at Aristotles; friendly staff, clean spacious rooms, quiet and free use of laundry too! I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Also handy to most places on the North Shore including Denny's.

I don't think the photos I saw prior to arriving did the place any justice. The rooms were quite impressive, very clean, spacious and providing all the necessities. The cleaning staff were very efficient and always friendly and helpful. Use of the laundry was free...bonus! Aristotles is very close to a great pub (Mad Dogs and Englishmen), within walking distance... More
