Very clean and quiet, friendly staff, good high speed Internet. Breakfast (an additional cost) was also very tasty and delivered at the time I asked for. Would happily stay again and definitely recommend it for business or family travelers.

With a change in direction I will be again frequenting the Taranaki Region. I used to stay here on previous visits and decided to continue ti see how things have changed. The only thing that has changed are the people running the operation. The rooms are still superb and are immaculately clean. I really didn't expect anything less as it... More

This place is modern, clean and simply one of the nicest motels I've stayed in for a long time. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which was spacious for the 4 of us (all adults). Will definitely stay here again when I return to New Plymouth

We had such a good time there! it's a great motel located close to CBD and very pleasant and welcoming hosts. We hadn't booked online and decided to stop in and see the room first; the complex is modern and rooms are very clean and we'll furnished. We are Hotel Consultants and we Highly recommended it !!

Amazing Staff, they are so Friendly. The cleaners are polite, and they do a wonderful job. The rooms are modern, spacious, quiet and clean. Added bonus of the Heat Pump in every room. The breakfast menu is well priced, and recommend. 50+ Sky Channels is great to have, as well as free Wifi and a Minibar

We stayed six nights and had a one bedroom unit, second in from the road. There was minimal disruption or noise which didn't affect us at all. The Unit was extremely comfortable and extremely functional. We had guests visiting who stayed elsewhere and they were annoyed they didn't stay at the same place. Excellent service, obliging staff, and generally we... More

We had the large unit closest to the road. Even being on a main road, our room was still very peaceful and spacious. The main living area, was large enough that even with 6 adults visiting t felt comfortable. There were a couple of little things that needed addressing, and the managers were happy with the feedback and were keen... More

Recommend this Motel - including the friendly service. On a busy road so at the back better. Good size rooms and all the handy touches including multiple device WiFi - especially handy with kids and surprising how many Motels still don't cater for this.

What a pleasant and WOW surprise in New Plymouth. New, VERY CLEAN, fresh, big rooms. Very comfortable beds and a clean, big, strong pressure shower. A kitchen that works, a fridge that fits big bottles, lots of TV channels, free wi-fi and a small gym that has a treadmill if the weather does not suit an outside beach run (and... More
