It was a bit 1950's-esque, but clean and neat and it had everything we needed. The kitchen was a bit small but the living area was nice and spacious. New Plymouth itself wasn't all that impressive, but I liked this motel just fine!

We chose this motel because of the amenities to entertain our kids and they made good use of the pool and games room while we were there. The room although outdated were roomy and clean, with a lovely private balcony where we ate all of our meals. We had a unit upstairs and close to the road which was noisy... More

A neat little play area surrounded... More

Very sad to leave after spending time here. Tony and Maree were awesome hosts and went out of their way to ensure our stay was enjoyable. The staff are a lovely bunch of ladies who take great pride in their work - the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in. My partner enjoyed the indoor pool on numerous occasions. Hopefully... More

We have just spent a pleasant 3 days at this motel. Despite it's age it is very well maintained, very clean and serviced daily. We had a great unit overlooking the pool and were able to sit outside in the sun. We had been upgraded to a unit with a separate kitchen and welcomed the extra space. We also appreciated... More

Tony and Maree provide clean, comfortable accommodation with thought. From the wine waiting on the bench for our late arrival, to fresh milk in the fridge, dark makeup remover face cloth to 3 towels instead of your average 2 in hotels. This motel is really great value and the bonus of a heated pool and play area for kids. Our... More

Great spot, close enough to town to be handy but far enough away to be private and relaxed. Huge pluses are the indoor and outdoor pools and games room, great way to chillax on site. Very friendly hosts and units are clean and comfy.

We went to New Plymouth for a family celebration and booked a two bedroom unit, the price was great, the rooms spotless, the Hosts extremely friendly and helpful, kind enough to give me a cutting from a very pretty plant as well. They checked on how we were in the morning, we will be staying there every time we go... More
