This motel is quiet (a hard thing to find in New Plymouth) but that's about all it has going for it. The decor is very tired and it wasn't overly clean. It was at the cheaper end of the scale though so I guess you get what you pay for.

We were very disappointed at the "rules " of the manager running this motel. We had booked 4 adults for 5 nights but needed to cancel the last night which we advised when checking in. It had never been disclosed to us because it was holiday time 28 days notice was required. In the information in the unit it stated... More

Great value with 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, free wifi and good location near Pukekura Park. Kitchen and bathroom a bit tired but nothing that worried us. Nice and quiet too with pleasant helpful hosts. For the price it was very good as New Plymouth is not a cheap town!

Very ordinary and not very nice at all except for quietness and bush around. There was no oven to cook with - only cook top and not very welcoming manager. However I know it must be difficult for him when the accommodation isn't great and he is trying to make a living.

Older motel but clean, value for money, quiet and comfortable. Wifi is free but limited. We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment. Beds comfortable and room spacious. Laundry on site. Walk down to stream is lovely. Heaters warm it up but not sure how well they would do in mid winter. Parking can be a bit tight but I didn't find... More

Stayed here in advice of friends in New Plymouth. Quiet, older, roomy, clean, and one can tell the owners take pride in their motel. Parking was tight but who cares! Room more then made up for that, as well as the setting. I'll stay here again the next time I'm in kiwiland. -Brian, Ormond Bch, Fl USA

Lovely quiet setting but convenient for New Plymouth and surrounding area. Although an older styIe motel it provided excellent value for money with clean & comfortable facilities that is backed up by good customer service.

This hotel was a bit difficult to find. It's located at the end of small quiet road. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and full of amenities even though a liitle old. Staffs were friendly and helpful.

Stayed one night while in New Plymouth for a funeral. The motel is older but has very clean and comfortable beds. Is in a quiet location. All you need when just wanting somewhere to put your head down for the night. Water was extremely hot. Would stay again if looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful. The fact that it was... More

We stayed three nights here. This is an older style hotel. We had a suite in the main building next to the reception. We had one spacious bedroom with a double and a single bed. There was a spacious kitchen with a fridge, microwave, oven with stove top, kettle, cutlery, etc. There wasn't a bath tub, but there is a... More
