Fantastic place! Rooms were very clean and quiet - no street, fridge or air con noise. Room lovely and spacious, and kept to a good temperature. Staff were excellent - even provided a meeting room with no notice. Free wireless - can't even get that in Auckland! Very central location, with shops and restaurants only a minute walk away.

Got to the room and the family area was over booked. We were upgraded to 2 interconnecting rooms with a kitchen between. The kids loved having their own room, with the security of us being through the door. Great night sleep. Would stay again

I have spent more time in New plymouth this year, than I have in my lifetime! I chose this motel for it's proximity to the city. On many counts, I was not disappointed. From the moment I stepped into the reception area, the likes of Jasmine greeted me with a warm, friendly and inviting smile. Within moments. I was guided... More

The hotel is within walking distance of the city centre so is in a perfect location for those who would love to explore the shops without having to worry about taking the car out. The room we stayed in was a nice size and the beds were very comfortable. The spa bath was amazing and lovely after a long day... More

I stay here on a regular basis for work and I find it is always clean, tidy & very comfortable. The staff are always so friendly and helpful and the rates are real value for money. I love the fact that you are right at the bottom of the main street. Close to all the shops, restaurants, the coastal walkway... More

Only stayed here for the 2 nights but the hotel itself was very quiet. The layout of the rooms was a little weird, with it being a little bit of a maze. The room itself was very clean, not overly big, but it did have a comfortable bed. The spa bath was a self cleaning one which made a horrible... More

Stayed one night here. Very good hotel in the middle of the town, good location. Reception staff were very helpful with site seeing and city information. Rooms were clean and very well kept and up to standard.

We stayed at this hotel over Anzac weekend this year - it was very quiet in New Plymouth, and the hotel was no exception! We asked for a twin room with a double and single, and to our delight discovered the single was in its own little bedroom off the main room. The room was very spacious and clean, and... More
