We were attending a National sailing regatta and it was great to be able to have a very comfortable apartment. It allowed us to cook regatta style meals in a kitchen with a better supply of various utensils and crockery than you would normally! The apartment was very clean, organised with comfortable beds. We all slept very well and had... More

Booked one of the apartments that had 2 Queens and 1 single which was sufficient for our needs. Arrived to be told we had been upgraded to the "really nice" apartment that had 1 King, 1 Queen and 1 single. Awesome and off we went with our directions to the apartment which is just behind the Motor Lodge. We were... More

Arrived late after a long drive from Wellington via Levin to visit some old friends. We made this journey because I was curious to have a look at Mt. Taraniki. Made very welcome by the operator and shown to our room at the end of a single story block to the rear of the hotel. Went down into New Plymouth... More

Having camped for the past several Womads in New Plymouth and being stormed-out last year (didn't spoil Womad, but howling gales and driving rain took the gloss off living under canvas). . . we decided to treat ourselves to a motel this time, even though the campground we'd used previously- Belt Road - was truly great. Northgate was just what... More

This place looked as if it had reciently been refurbished. We only stayed one night, but would defiantly return. All the amenities you would expect plus a little bit of style. Not far into town. They also serve breakfast if you order the night before.

Stayed one night for business in a ground floor unit and had a comfortable stay. Great sized desk for laying out my business papers and laptop and good facilities. I did find the lighting very dim and the room was quite dark in the afternoon and unfortunately the lighting didn't make a difference. On the upside the curtains blocked out... More

Our accommodation was an apartment separated from the main complex but located just behind it. It contained 3 bedrooms, bathroom, separate toilet, lounge and kitchen. Newly refurbished, quiet, private outside area, just perfect for us and our friends for a relaxing weekend away. The spa pool was well maintained.

The lodge provided everything we needed. We were able to cook very nice meals with the small kitchen. There is a BBC place, but we did not use it. Parking is good, service is very friendly, WIFI is free but very slow, washing machine works very well, rooms are clean, showers are very nice

Big group of over 30 people stayed 3 nights for 2014 Christmas. Good communication with the owner when booking purely through emails. A lot of changes but all fixed properly. Location is good, close to shops and beach. Rooms are nicely maintained, kitchen is good, beds are comfy. It's only the shower in my room not working good enough; the... More
