Loved our room, big, spacious, comfortable. The playground was right outside, my son even played on it in the rain. Added bonus was the tabby cat that roamed around the rooms, it even slept on our bed overnight:) We will be back, as we went down to see the mountain, she kept herself hidden unfortunately!!

We stayed here for 3 nights in one of the 2 bedroom units. As has been mentioned in other reviews, this place is super clean! We cooked more than we ate out. Everything we needed was in the very well set out kitchen. The equipment was all like new! Rooms are serviced daily & the cleaning crew were really lovely... More

The Famingo was a really lovely place to spend a few days. We made use of both the outdoor and heated pool and the kids loved the trampoline. Tony and Marie went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and it made a huge difference to us. Lots of little things like plunger coffee, chocolate fish and towels... More

We booked a 3 night stay to visit the area and see UB40 at Brooklands. Although a little dated, however I loved the retro feel, the rooms were the cleanest I have ever stayed in, spacious, well equipped with all facilities, full Sky TV and free WiFi. The owners were welcoming, friendly and full of helpful knowledge and suggestions, they... More

On Tour of NZ from the UK, this was a perfect place to stay. A 'cared-for' feel about the grounds and buildings. Solar heated outdoor pool lovely and clean and warm. Accommodation ideal. Maree kindly gave us a lift to harbour area and both she and Tony willing to share knowledge of area / what to see etc. Would recommend.

I have stayed here about 6 times with my two boys. Always friendly, always clean. The two pools are always functioning and kept clean unlike a lot of places I have stayed. Central to everything in New Plymouth. Will keep coming back for sure.

We chose this motel at random from Jason's Guide. The Motel ticked all our boxes, a clean, comfortable and spacious room with kitchen facilities, guest laundry, central location, onsite parking and pool. The unexpected bonus was the hospitality and local knowledge offered by Maree and Tony. This overnight stay was indeed a highlight of our four week tour of the... More
