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.

Not a friendly Motel at all. We called in the evening to get a room. We stood at the parking. The reception was closed. The man at the phone was very unfriendly. He didn t wanted to give us a room or even talk! Unbelievable.

Hi Daniel S, Firstly, let me just say that our service is the one thing we pride ourselves on here at Lockwood Manor. Unfortunately when you called that evening (which was at 10:30pm) I was fast asleep, and I tried to explain to you that the office was closed. You also said you were still 10 minutes away (I don't...

Three couples including ourselves stayed here last week. The motel was warm and Spacious and the beds very comfortable. The Central location was a plus and it wasn't too noisy. Being able to borrow bicycles was also great
