Modern and clean with comfortable beds. Good standard of accommodation for an overnight stay but road noise is definitely an issue so requesting a room further back from the main road would be recommended.

16 Northgate was an excellent place to stay for the night due to an early flight out the next morning. Hosts were more than helpful - the unit was clean & tidy & nice and quiet. Will be recommending......

Stayed for 2 nights in October. Studio room was a little cramped but clean and comfortable. Kitchenette was well stocked. Didn't like the stainless steel shower recess, floor quite slippery. Not too far from town, little bit far to walk for shopping or eating out. Free Wifi worked well. Overall quite good value for money.

Friendly hosts - remembered us and what we were up to. No worries or stress whatsoever. Clean rooms and great spa. Close to town and airport. Great value for money and enjoyed watching sport on Sky and connecting with no issues at all to the free WIFI. Will stay again.

The spa is great... More

We stayed in this motel for 2 nights whilst touring the North Island, and this was the second to last place we stayed in. The motel is located about 1km from the centre of New Plymouth along the main road, so it's easy to find, being right on the main New Plymouth - Hamilton highway. You can also access the... More

We had a couple of very pleasant nights at this Motor Lodge. The location was perfect, the units and facilities were great (the renovations done tastefully) and we were spoiled for choice with all the sky channels. Apart from it looking appealing on the website, the fact it offered free wifi was the final decider for us and definitely a... More

A very enjoyable week at this motel. We stayed for a week to attend a family event at short notice from Perth The owners went out of their way to accommodate us to ensure we were comfortable and happy, even though we arrived quite late. They were very helpful and pleasant when we needed assistance. The unit was beautifully renovated... More
