Very welcoming and friendly hosts, everything we needed in the room, spacious, clean, warm, 2 TVs which was a bonus with lots of channels, well equipped kitchen. Even complimentary chocolates for us in the fridge which was lovely. We were given plenty of towels and the indoor hot pool was amazing especially on a cold wet day. Highly recommend for... More

We stayed there for the best part of last week - sadly for a family bereavement. We had the two bedroom unit and then booked another double unit so most of the family was accommodated. What fantastic service we received from the owners, they were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Everyone here just so friendly - the... More

We got a two bedroom unit here for one night for 5 people. Our stay was very comfortable, it was winter and all the rooms had a heater to keep us warm and enough blankets. The kitchenette came in handy for those late night noodle meals, and all the kitchen equipment was clean. Along with the rest of the unit.... More

This place would be the cleanest I have ever been into even though the place is a bit dated. Not being new and "flash" certainly doesn't detract from the place. The owners and staff are very friendly and the service was great. Would happily stay there again and will be recommending it to anyone who is travelling to New Plymouth

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
