Lockwood manor was a lovely stay in New Plymouth. I think we were the only couple staying at the time. Check in was easy, parking was just outside of the room and it had a decent kitchen so we could cook our own dinner. Stayed one night there and would definitely come back. Great accomodation for singles, couples or families.

We booked this motel on the basis of TR reports and ratings and we were not disappointed. The room was very comfortable and quiet and the service was excellent. The lockwood timber and high ceilings made for a very pleasant change..

I wish we could have stayed for 3-4 nights instead of one. I booked the hotel due to the picture of the lovely wood interior. It exceeded expectations. So clean even the utensil in the drawers were lined up in rows. The bed was so very comfortable and the owners were very personable. We walked to dinner in the CBD.... More

What a great place. The room was clean, tidy and had everything we needed. Location was good too - within walking distance to the city. It took us about 15 minutes to get to the centre of the city. Supermarkets were close by too. We will definitely stay here again next time. Totally recommend it......

This was our second visit to Lockwood Manor Motel and our stay was equally as good as our first stay. The motel is very well set up with everything you could possibly need, it is very clean and the beds are super comfortable. The hosts are friendly and welcoming. Location is great for an early flight in the morning. We... More

Dont be put off by some of the "terrible" reviews (especially the rude man expecting a room late at night) We booked originally for two nights for a wedding on the Saturday of Queens Birthday weekend but had to change our plans a few days before.The owners were very accomodating of our changes. We arrived early on the Sat morning... More

Located on a main road but rooms are set back we thought noise would be an issue- but not the case- there was also construction happening and didn't notice it. A little out of the main town but an easy drive in- parking not a problem in the CBD.room very comfy and light- good value for the price

Very Clean, simple but modern room and comfortable. Easy walking distance to New Plymouth CBD. Would be most happy staying here again in the future and recommending this as a great place to stay. Thanks

We stayed two nights at Lockwood Manor. We like to have a kitchen thus the reason for choosing this accommodation. The room was spotlessly clean and ticked all our boxes. Easy car parking on site, nice walk to the ocean front and supermarkets. Owner was super nice and accommodating. Thoroughly recommend.
