We stayed here on Dec 28th with our dog. The service was friendly and helpful and they made us and our dog welcome. The units are a decent size, and nice and clean. The location is handy for the city, and with a dairy, a fish & chip shop and a Coffee Guy stand across the road, the basics are... More

This motel is next to the racetrack and close to Brooklands Park, and a convenient location if you're traveling with dogs. Our one bedroom apartment was clean and spacious. The owner was very helpful and friendly.

Friendly hosts, clean and comfortable rooms, clean kitchen with everything you need to make a fine meal. 100% would recommend to friends and family! A++ clean and fresh linen, cute golden retriever owned by the hosts is definitely a plus!!!

Such a friendly, helpful owner and great location. We stayed with our two little dogs and the proximity to the park was a bonus. The rooms are spacious with a comfortable bed and good shower. It is a bit dated, but as we were taking the dogs, that didn't matter at all. The racecourse is right there too and we... More

The owner is a fine fellow, as friendly as could be. He has tried hard to make his place comfortable but he's missing some important things. They rely on mattress pads for heat. I can live with that. But when the power cord on one of the pads in the queen bed cannot reach a power outlet what does that... More

Stayed here for two nights and found this place to be very good value. It is a down to earth and pleasant motel that is very well situated. We do not like pretentious accommodation full of plastic people and this is certainly not that. The race course is just next to it and Pukekura park is well within walking distance.... More

This is a very clean, comfortable and well equipped motel with spacious rooms. It is very quiet and safe with free parking available right outside the room. The motel is adjacent to the race course and close to Pukepura Park as well as being within easy reach of the cbd. The hosts are very friendly, helpful and obliging. The free... More

Comfortable Motel next door to the race course that is reasonably priced. We decided to stay at The Saddle and Sulky because it was pet friendly and it was just that. Friendly and warm at reception also. Our room was clean and tidy but quite run down but this is an older establishment. Overall I would stay again.

Accommodation in New Plymouth is surprisingly and inexplicably pricey. This motel is at the lower end of the local cost scale and if you allow for that, it's a perfectly good option for a "cheap" night, relatively speaking. Service is good, the rooms are clean and of a good size, location is handy and the beds comfortable. It feels like... More

The Saddle and Sulky is a nice motel on the main road, next to the race course. Although an older establishment is very comfortable and had a fully kitted kitchenette. We got a great discounted winter deal.
