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

We stayed here for five nights at the beginning of 2015 in their three bedroom apartment. It had been tastefully modernised and updated with everything that we needed. The apartment is located off another quiet street behind the main motel and therefore road noise from the main road wasn't an issue. The location is close to some good walkways, close... More

16 Northgate Motel offers great value if you are looking for a decent size studio accommodation right at the center of New Plymouth's CBD. Located just a few streets away from the city's famous coastal walkway and minutes drive from the popular Pukekura Park, the motel offers a perfect combination of affordable comfortable stay and convenience. Our group stayed in... More

We stayed here for the first three nights of the 2015 new year. We are walkers so wanted someone close to town - tick; handy to walkways - tick; supermarkets close by - tick; kitchen facilities - tick. Met all our requirements and more - only a 10-15 minute walk downtown; five minute walk to the Coastal Walk or Te... More

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.

We booked a 22 sq meters unit. It was a lot bigger that it seem in the photos. Super clean and comfy, serviced daily. They offer tea, coffee, milk and vene hot chocolate (nice detail for non coffee/tea drinkers like me!)The owners are really friendly, and the place is super handy to supermarkets and the beach. The spa is great... More
