Very clean room. Helpful hosts. Convenient location. Good air con. Fabulous shower! This is the best motel we have stayed at in New Plymouth. Others have been too hot or noisy but this one was really good.

Stayed here for a few days whilst working in the area. Booked through my company. And to be honest the best ive stayed in around this area. Had a Gym opposite my room and laundry, small seating outside every unit. A real comfy bed and self contained kitchen area, nice size bathroom all modern and good pressure in the shower/... More

Used to stay here on a fortnightly basis until I had my third no hot water experience. However the owners are lovely and very hospitable. The Beds are the best. However the Rooms are small for the price. Busy road leaves you with traffic noises most of the night. 3/5

Thank you for your review Jay. Its a pity you had to leave your review until 10 months down the track as in March we put in a complete new hot water system and have had absolutely no problems since. We would welcome you to come back and stay for a lovely hot shower. Cheers Fi More

Walking distance straight down highway to town. Clean, well appointed, bed comfortable, complicated blinds that provided total blackout, everything worked. Had upstairs unit far from the road and slept in.

We had an upstairs studio overlooking some bush. There is adequate parking and the property was easy to find on the main road opposite the racecourse. The unit was spacious, clean and well appointed with a large desk space, small table and chairs and two comfortable tub chairs. The bathroom was modern and roomy with separate bath and shower, and...

Here on business and the studio unit was perfect and although just off the main road very quiet. Clean and tidy and great to be able to park directly outside. A nice touch with dual control electric blankets and free WiFi. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and I would not hesitate to rebook.
