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

A group of us from Wellington stayed for two nights over Waitangi Weekend so we could climb Mt Taranaki/Egmont. Friendly manager, free newspaper and best of all a large hot indoor pool, which was vital for soothing our aching limbs. Room size reasonable, a little close to the main road for traffic noise but a good stay. We did find... More

What a great place to stay. We had a 2 bedroom unit. The place was squeaky clean. The rooms were generous in size. Our room had our own outdoor area - roomy and lovely garden - all to ourselves. The owner was very nice. He even drove us to the concert we were in town to see - at no... More

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
