We have four children and stayed for two nights over a long weekend. We weren't in quick enough to get one of the popular family units but were able to get two adjacent rooms with a connecting door. Lovely motel with large very clean rooms, a great shower, comfortable beds and a great location with a very easy walk to... More

New management at a well established motel right next to the race course hence the name. Probably an 80s built motel but very clean and well presented. Very helpful and friendly reception. Unfortunately our IPad's would not connect to the WiFi but we were the exception, no one else had problems. The motel is not too far from the CBD.... More

We booked in here through bookings.com for NZ$143 for a one bedroom apartment. The motel is located a 2 minute drive from the centre of New Plymouth directly adjacent to Pukakura Racecourse. We received a very warm welcome and directed to our spacious ground floor apartment which contained a full kitchen, a lounge with a queen and a single bed,... More

This motel is clean &warm with up to date appliances also a full oven. Friendly owners off street parking. Although maybe need to only allow one parking space per unit as when we returned from an evening out there were no spots left and we had to park on the road. Good value for your money and close to everything.... More

I had recently moved to NZ from the UK, my wife & kids were only joining me a month later during which time I stayed at the saddle & sulky. It felt like a home away from home. The room was spacious, immaculate, clean towels provide daily & suited my needs perfectly. I have to say, Karen & Brendan were... More

Brendan & Karen are remarkably attentive and devoted hosts. There were four of us in two adjoining rooms for just two days and two nights while we toured New Zealand and visited distant relatives. The rooms were exquisitely clean with a generously equipped kitchen. And Karen not only offered to do our laundry but brought it back pressed and folded.... More

We booked in at the last minute after our booked accommodation fell seriously short of what was expected. Karen was awesome and got us sorted straight away. Lovely room, great beds and wonderful shower. Very friendly owner and so helpful. Would definitely stay again

We were only here one night, so didn't get too much of an impression, but it was generally quite nice. The lady, who was watching the motel for her brother, I believe, was incredibly friendly and made us feel at home. The room was well-appointed and there was ample parking close to the rooms. This was a bit on the... More
