Recent guest reviews

Lovely staff very accomodating. Huge rooms loads of space for the family. Slightly dated but that's good when you have kids running around. Comfy beds, Nice clean indoor pool and spa for kids. Location fantastic, walk to shops beach restaurants.

Really impressed with the size of the room we booked for 1 night. It was very clean & the kids loved the spa bath. Good water pressure for the shower. The bed could have been more comfortable but we were only there for one night so not too worried about that. The heated swimming pool & spa pool in was a hit for both the whole family. We'll stay there again when visiting New Plymouth.

Me and my family stayed there for a night last week and here's some opinions and experiences I have about this place: Pros: 1. Location location location!. At the main road so it is super easy to find. 24hrs McDonald, supermarket, gas stations just across the road. You could find something to eat no matter when. 2. Very friendly staffs 3. Free unlimited WiFi Cons: 1. Property is bit old. Definitely needs attention. Shower head fell off, so was the bar of towel holder. No air conditioning but electric fan only so my family could hardly sleep while the room temperature was so high. The main sliding door might need some WD40 as it made squeaky noise when open. 2. One of the main reasons I booked this was because they have a bath so that I could give my 1-year-old a bath after daytime activities. Yes they have that in the toilet but it was a bit misleading while the bath is only the bottom part of the small shower box with a higher side wall. My 1-year-old? Yes. An fully grown adult try to get in? No way. 3. I wish they could extend the open time of their swimming pool and spa. I was thinking to use it at about 11pm after all activities then realized they closed at 9pm. 4. That was the first time an insect (I believe it was an ant) got into my ear while I was sleeping while staying here. It scared me heaps as it made a lot of noise and some itchy feeling inside my ear. Luckily I finally got that out of my ear by jumping around and shaking my head. This might not totally be this motel's fault as I saw ant everywhere in New Plymouth but I think this part of the hygienes in the room could still be improve a little bit because I saw some ant walking around on the chair during the day time already. Conclusion: I could go back there again only if the price is cheaper and/or other places are fully booked.

Stayed here at the end of December and although a little dated this motel is spotless and clean. The lady at a Reception was just so knowledgeable and helpful. We extended our stay another couple of days So recommend to anyone wishing good priced accomodation . Pool was great. Unit was quiet

We booked this motel because the pictures implied there was a sea view from the property. This was definitely not the case. The motel itself was reasonably spacious,but smelt musty and unused. It was very dated, and the ants in the kitchen were a problem. There was a can of fly spray but it was empty! The traffic noise was bad. Best advice if you have to stay there, don’t pick a Saturday. The boy racers don’t give it a rest.

Our 1 bedroom unit was clean and spacious, shower good with clean towels daily if required. A heated swimming pool and spa available for use. Friendly hosts. Parking good very handy to supermarket and an easy walk to town. Free wifi was a bit slow at times.

A group of 35 of us spent 2 nights at this motel and not one dissatisfied customer! The rooms are well-appointed and very comfortable, fully self-catering with free wifi and plenty of TV channels. Friendly, welcoming proprietors. Breakfast available if you order it the night before.- but McDonalds is just a short walk away, and it's near to most of the amenities. There's even a water filter in reception for guests to help themselves (the local tap water has a slightly unpleasant taste). There is a pool but we didn't visit it. Our room was one of the nearest to the street, but it was surprisingly quiet. We'll stay there again when we're in town.

Amazing location and host . Nearby is a gas station which is opened till late ? 24 hours I am not sure . McDonalds is at walking distance 20 metres approx . countdown which is a food mall is nearby next to mcdonald .Pak n sav is a walking distance about 50 metres Room is clean , twin bed , full kitchenette . Host is polite and gave us an extra 3hours late check out . Thank you Free parking , free tea coffee facilities , free milk for tea /coffee Burger fuel at 10 metres In all an awesome stay

Very Friendly Host - that was happy to share her thoughts opinons on things to do and places to go... Its great to have nice friends helpful person in a town you are visiting. I was a late checkin so I had a room down at their second property, It was great as it had a full cooking facilities therefor a good reason to go to countdown and cook dinner. the property/ room was a bit old but clean and in good working order. It had everything you needed which was fine for a nights stay. Very pleasant host.

The rooms are dated but large and well equipped. the rooms are warm on a windy New Plymouth day. Was very pleasantly surprised to find the bed comes with an electric blanket, thanks so much for that. Very handy to town and it was only a 5 mins walk to the restaurants and bars. Lovely friendly staff. Recommend.
