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

Couldn't fault Pukekura Motor Lodge when we stayed there recently. The complex is new which meant everything was in it's place. Our unit clean, quiet, warm with really comfortable beds. We stayed in a upstairs unit with a bath which was lovely at the end of a long day driving. They unit had a good view over the city with.... More

Such a nice place to relax on work trip. Spacious, modern and clean. I switched to this motel over a year ago for work teips. The hosts are your typical lovely kiwi couple. The service is world class and the rooms are well set out. Great cooking facilities. Love the double blinds for privacy. And really comfy beds!. I would... More

A great place to stay, with modern rooms, the most comfortable beds in town, and a great option of restaurant charge backs / delivery. Hosts are helpful, courteous and good humored! Very much recommend!

Was upgraded to a two bedroomed apartment. Lovely surprise to be greeted with an umbrella as the heavens opened up all day - so my luggage was still dry! Apartment was very tidy, modern décor and lovely double blinds which would keep out the sun during the day, not that I stayed when it was sunny - but also kept... More
