We were halfway through a one month tour of NZ, when we arrived, On the first day my son came down with a high fever and I considered us lucky we stayed with them. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The room was quiet, warm and well equipped and safe. Despite not being able to do as much as... More

Reasonably central, well priced, reasonably modern furnishings, friendly people. The room was nicely appointed, containing everything we needed for a few nights. Heat pump quick and efficient. There is some noise from the sliding doors of other rooms, but that is more of a construction issue and did not detract.

We stayed for three nights Queens Birthday weekend and were very impressed with the welcome from all staff. The room was lovely and clean, warm with excellent linen and lovely big bath towels. Bed super comfy. Unit 2 was close to the busy one-way road but we had no problem with the noise. Close proximity to the beautiful coastal walk,... More

Being from the Bay of Plenty, New Plymouth is cold (apparently due to their mountain). Lockwood Manor was warm and comfortable. As well, it was clean and had everything we needed. It was close to the city and easy to find.

A lovely well equipped unit at a very reasonable price,run by a lovely couple. If we'd had longer time available, we would've loved to have taken advantage of the bikes they can provide (included in price).

Excellent stay, very handy to the main centre. The units were excellent. Only gripe found that the units were not very sound proof, but wonder if that's a Lockwood thing. Sliding doors were very noisey especially at night. Overall I would return as the hostess was excellent.

We had a lovely stay at Lockwood Manor Motel. As others have mentioned, it was spotlessly clean and lots of nice touches to make it super comfortable. Unfortunately - due to unforeseen circumstances we could only stay for one of the two nights booked. We fully expected to have to pay for the second night when we checked out early,... More

We stay here over two nights during the Easter holiday and it is a great experience. Helpful staff, comfortable bed, nice TV, and lovely kitchenette. Location is perfect and supermarkets are within walking distance. Would recommend this to my friends.

What a fantastic place! nothing was too much trouble at this lovely motel. Spotlessly clean very well equipped and free WiFi. In a quieter location but within easy walking distance of the centre. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone.
