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

Nice spacious room with good bathroom. Very clean & comfortable. We liked the wood paneling, felt like we were in a ski chalet! Quiet, despite being fully booked & located on big road. David was very helpful & we appreciated that he contacted us quickly, before we got too far away, when they found the suit bag we accidentally left... More

I stayed two nights with my 6yo son. We had a nice stay in New Plymouth and the motel was perfect for us! Family-friendly, amazing service, very comfortable and clean room. We used the fridge and cooktop. And it was so nice to have milk, coffee, tea in the room. Everything in town is walkable from the motel. We loved... More

The rooms in this motel are quite nicely furnished, with a fully functional (if small) kitchen. The motel is located at the far end of the central business district, so plan on at least fifteen minutes to walk to restaurants, bars, or shopping. There are grocery and chain stores closer, but nothing unique. Free internet. Laundry was coin operated, but... More
