I stayed here for 3 weeks whilst working in Taranaki. It is a short 10min walk to town where you will find a multitude of bars amd restaurants, the grocery store is only a short 5 min walk and there is a path to the coastal walkway only meters from the motel. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the... More

We found the room small but comfortable and the auto lodge is very close to the beach with its marvelous coastal walkway. We had booked for 2 nights but had the misfortune to have a rugby team, or fans, partying below us on one of them. Despite numerous complaints from us, and others, the noise did not abate until almost... More

Stayed here on a number of occasions. Double & home units. All rooms I've been placed in had comfy queen sized beds, digital tv, spotless room, helpful & courteous staff. Pool and jacuzzi were great. F&B a step above what you would get in town. Quite a walk away from town but hey, it's good exercise.

This is my second review on this one... but I had write it. The customer service is so awesome that I could not myself from writing it.

Our family from Northland met with friends from Wellington at Auto Lodge Villa New Plymouth. The accommodation was perfect for us. Very clean, tidy, spacious, private warm and welcoming and affordable. About 50 of us had dinner in the restaurant the next night and the food and service was great. We will defiantly look at staying here again next time... More

We stayed in a two bedroom family unit. The bedrooms were pleasant with plenty of space and storage in the master bedroom. The living space and kitchen were well appointed, with modern decor, clean and tidy. We found the rooms and facilities were good value for money. The reception and restaurant staff provided helpful and friendly service.

We stayed as a group of 3 friends in June 2014. This motel was booked on our behalf as our original planned accommodation fell through. We stayed in a one bedroom family room. The location of this motel is very good, with close proximity to town & our favourite cafe, The Federal Cafe. It's about a 3min drive to the... More
