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

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

We stayed here for two nights in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment was modern, well appointed and absolutely spotless. We loved the double blinds and blackout curtains in all rooms (children slept in both mornings - bonus). We found the apartment to be quiet, even with another family with small children next door, there was no noise through walls.... More

We needed a room with disability access provided, and they delivered. The room was a bit larger than their adjoining standard rooms, so you could actually get around inside in a wheelchair. The benches and equipment were all down low so they could be reached from the wheelchair. There was easy access to the shower and toilet. The furnishings were... More

Stayed here for the Taranaki Around the Mountain Relay this year as part of a work trip with my partner, an excellent place to spend a few nights, well equipped, modern and comfortable. I had no room service nor am I aware of the room price but based on the features I would have no issue staying here again.

Stayed in the lodge for a week for a business trip. It was very comfortable and clean and the staff were helpful and friendly.
