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

We stayed three nights in this motel. It is an older style but very clean and comfortable and in a very quiet area adjacent to the Te Henui walkway . Our unit was very spacious and loved having a separate bedroom. The kitchenette was reasonable equipped but the addition of a chopping board would be welcome. We would stay there... More

Stayed 4 nights to go to the rugby and have a look at New Plymouth, While this motel is far from new, care is taken for it to be as clean as possible and rooms are serviced daily. The separate bedroom had a comfortable bed, electric blanket and its own heater. Pillows and bedding were more than adequate. The kitchen... More

We have just spent 2 nights at the Timandra and found it spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Probably the best shower in any motel we have stayed in. Handy to everything we needed. Will be back. We had a one bedroom unit and it was very spacious.

Staying at the Timandra Motel in New Plymouth is very relaxing and peaceful, yet close to the City centre. I have been staying at the Timandra Motel for a few years now and find the room I stay in which is located right next door to reception is very spacious. Pete and Stu the owners, are always very helpful.

The decor at this motel is dated but the unit was large and extremely clean. Good value for the rate. Nice, quiet location. Fresh daisies in the unit was a nice touch. Free milk on check in was appreciated.
