We spent two nights here this week and are very pleased with our experience. Two adults and one well behaved labrador. We had a one bedroom unit with a king bed. The decor is a little dated but it adds to the charm. This is the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in. The owners keep it spotless. Bed linen... More

We stayed 3 nights here for a mid winter holiday. we are a family of 6 and found everything fantastic. The rooms were spotlessly clean. The kids loved the indoor pool, games room and the playground. The owners were super friendly and helpful. Thanks so much for a great break away!

I stayed 3 nights at the Flamingo with my dad while we caught up with extended family in New Plymouth. The proprietors are wonderful - very helpful and friendly. We had a 1 bedroom unit which suited us perfectly. Although the decor is a little dated the beds were very comfortable and the shower had good pressure. As our stay... More

The owners are very friendly and helpful. Great Pool and spa. Our room had a new TV. In particular we were impressed that they called us within 10 mins of leaving to say we had left a gift card behind. Will definitely stay here again soon.

We have just returned home after almost two weeks at the Flamingo while we had business in New Plymouth. The unit was spotless and very comfortable but the biggest asset of this place is the attitude of the owners and their staff. We were made to feel very welcome, nothing was a bother and every day they asked if there... More

From the moment we arrived till we left we were made to feel like family and everywhere was as clean and tidy as it was... More
