Spotless, clean motel. Facilities good and nice comfy bed. Close to beach and lovely walks. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely book this motel again. Management and staff were all very helpful and friendly.

The recently refurbished hotel was great. Large rooms, clean bathrooms and the location was fantastic ( A short walk to a sand beach suitable for swimming). We were there during a surf competition - great fun. The staff is super friendly and very willing to help travels with things to see and do. If you do stay here, you should... More

This was the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in. Very nice owner and conveniently located. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Breakfast is offered delivered to your room which is nice when you want to save time instead of going out to find a breakfast place to eat.

We enjoyed our stay here. The motel is close to the beach and a very short drive away from town. The beds are confortable (even the pull out sofa). The bathroom is modern and it didn't have a enclosed shower which makes the bathroom feel bigger. However the bathroom floor gets too wet because of this. Nice hosts.

A handy location to Fitzroy beach (which is great for swimming and walks along the coast) but not as central to New Plymouth as some other options. Modern furnishings and a very nice touch that the breakfast dishes were done for us each day when we got back. The Sky TV setup was very low resolution. Overall, a pleasant stay... More

We stayed here while we were in New Plymouth in December. I get the feeling that this is a fairly new motel. The decor is quite modern and everything feels nice and clean. It is an easy walk down to the beach and to the lovely New Plymouth Coastal Walkway. This is a wide concreate walkway, partly along the beach,... More

We stayed for 5 nights and overall found the motel to be comfortable, clean and mostly up to the standard that we had experienced when we had stayed there previously. However, we felt that they were catering more for the Commercial travellers rather than travelling public. We had booked as a couple but found that the coffee percolator held only... More
