I had to be in New Plymouth overnight and stayed at the Flamingo Motel, as other reviewers have said the building is a bit dated but my experience of staying there was very good. Everything worked well and the bed was very comfortable, which is important. Lastly the manager wa very helpful which to me is important.

Great place to stay for a few nights. It is slightly dated but has good facilities and caters for children too. Our room was immaculately clean & tidy. Good location being close to CBD and nice helpful people. Will be back again. Definitely value for money.

This motel benefits from its location and very friendly and helpful owners. It is within walking distance of the city centre, but in a quiet location. The coastal walkway is even closer and highly recommended. Our unit was both spacious and spotlessly clean throughout our four night stay. All in all very good value for money and we would definitely... More

Decided to stay here for a family holiday over ANZAC long weekend. Met my parents from Rotorua and we came from Wellington. We had Units 3 & 4. Rooms have full kitchens so we cooked both nights. Fantastic central location, quick drive to shops, the boardwalk and Pukekura park. Our toddler loved the playground and the 38degree pool (which we... More

While a little dated it's very clean and tidy and the staff very helpful. Nice and close to central town. Lovely pool and great indoor hot pool. Good value for money. Would recommend to anyone with kids as plenty of room to play on swings trampoline and pool

Spent 1 night here, and although the motel is older, and the decor a bit dated, it is immaculately clean, very comfortable, and the owners friendly and welcoming. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others, and will be my first choice if I visit New Plymouth again.

The room was a great size, everything was really clean and comfy. Don't be put off because it looks a bit old, it is really well looked after and the staff are all really friendly and helpful. Plus there are two pools for the kids to choose from!

Thanks to Tony and Maree our group had a lovely stay in the Flamingo Motel in New Plymouth. We were there for four nights.The rooms were spacious and beds comfortable. The outside solar pool and the inside heated pool was enjoyed by all. They provided a BBQ meal on two nights of our stay. The Pav was out of this... More

This is a larger motel, not new, (maybe, 1970's built.) but well maintained and in great condition. The 2 swimming pools and garden playground equipment would be good for families. Nice open grounds and well placed for the sum. We stayed as part of a group of 36 and apart from the fact that our coach could not drive into... More

The rooms were spacious and very, very clean, the bed was really comfy and the pillows were too (good choice by them). We were upstairs overlooking the whole complex with a sea view from our balcony. The treat was the hot pool in the pool complex. Just what we needed after our trip to New Plymouth. Oh and the free... More
