The place is located centrally and within easy walking distance of the center and supermarkets. The staff is friendly and helpful and it is possible to borrow bikes that you can use to discover the coastal walkway.

Nice, comfortable rooms and very central to the city center for a variety of dining. A comfortable King Bed and a nice, big shower. 50 TV channels if you need a night in too. We stayed over the Womad weekend and we had a very enjoyable weekend. We'll be back next year. Thanks Guys.

Very clean, modern motel in a handy central location. Superb free breakfast and complimentary use of motel bicycles so we could enjoy New Plymouths great cycleway. A really enjoyable stay with helpful friendly staff. No problem with noise. Would definitely stay again.

Modern, great décor, spacious and quiet for city area. Well appointed units, complete with bicycles for nearby promenade - you'll ride forever! Handy location to supermarkets, restaurants and Pukekura Park.

Workers sitting outside drinking did not make for a safe feeling about the motel. In my last review of this motel, I recommend it being safe to leave a motorbike in the car park while we where out for the evening. I now do not feel the same about that. I would no longer recommend this motel for motorbike owners.

Room was fine, hosts friendly & helpful. Easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. However the noise from the road and from drunken guests and passers-by meant we had very little sleep both nights. Wouldn't stay here again.

We stayed here for one night in July. We had the unit (No 1) next to the road but once we closed the windows and door the traffic was not a problem. The unit was very clean, tidy and warm. The bed was extremely comfortable and nice armchairs - which you don't always get in a motel. There are 2... More
