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. They know their customers so well and attend to all the issues spontaneously. For example: The hotel knew and understood that I have really bad night if I sleep on a wrong bed... More

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

I have stayed in almost all the good hotels in NPL to find the right hotel for frequent visits. I have read the reviews others have placed for the hotel. In the case of refurbishment. If you ask th3 front office staff they will clearly tell you which rooms are refurbished and which are not. And you can choose a... More

Our 2 bedroom unit was spacious and well appointed. the shower pressure could have been better but the bathroom was large as was the living room. a big negative was that there were no net curtains so one had to pull the curtains as people were constantly walking past. the bar restaurant area is very retro but pleasant. The female... More

Stayed in the old?? Hotel block. After seeing the approach to the room did wonder if I had decided the right place. On opening the door on the 2nd floor I was pleasantly surprised of the size and the brightness of the room. Looking out to the Ocean. Very comfortable. Wi Fi available at a charge--$5 for a flat 24hours.... More

We arrived late as the Picton Ferry was delayed. Got in at 10:45pm and hosts were extremely accommodating even opening the bar so we could have a cold one after a fast ride from Wellington. We were located in the old part of the Lodge and rooms etc were extremely comfortable. The rooms and Hotel block could do with a... More

Wouldn't go back, tiles coming off in the bathrooms, wallpaper peeling and the fridge so pathetic the milk was off!! Staff were not interested and although the bed was comfy and linen clean they hadn't cleaned out the fridge from the people before us. We booked an executive suite with sea views, what a joke, a tiny peak of the... More
