The motel was clean and quiet, and reasonably well equipped. We suffered from noisy guests in an adjacent room as the walls are not very thick, but the location itself is very quiet, backing onto a large bush reserve. The queen size bed was a little saggy but comfy for all that. Our two bedroom unit was good value. There... More

Unfortunately we could only stay for a night but would have loved to have stayed longer. Found this motel to be in a handy location, nice and quiet, and clean. All we could have wished for for the very reasonable price. Thank you.

I would usually use Expedia for all my accomodation requirement when travelling. I booked a room in this motel at a great special rate of $99 per night. To my surprise, we stayed in a refurbished room and it was great. Great value for my $$$$. Great customer service from the owner too. Close to township & Pukekura Park.

We had one of the newly refurbished unit, new coat of paint and modernly furnished. We have 2 adult cats and owner Peter was very accommodating to our needs. Large backyard area for the kids to roam and only 2 min away from bush walk to Te Henui stream.

Motel is an older property, so it comes with a few quaint details, but all in all a great place to stay. On arrival you're handed an internet slip that says excessive use will incur a charge and that it's monitored. Would be helpful to know what 'excessive' is (everyone's opinion will be different) or perhaps a limited amount of... More

Stayed for 1 night room had everything i needed also had free wifi. was an older building but that added to the charm also was very reasonably priced, location was very quiet just far enough away from town so thats another plus.

Timandra was a great find. we stayed in the stand alone cottage…all was clean and it was so wonderful to just stop after a full day of travel, roast a chicken, catch up on email and watch some telly…then sleep in the comfy bed in the peaceful area. Bird song in the morning…a wonderful place to visit.

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.
