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

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!
