“Recommend to you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We were pleased that the Fitzroy Motel lived up to great reviews. We had a one bedroom unit. I'd judge this to be one of the cleanest places I've stayed in, which is a priority for me. Soundless rooms. Good daily room servicing. We used the wifi successfully. We enjoyed using the free bikes on the coastal walkway, as well as the convenient location half a block down from a park on the walkway. The motel's staff was very friendly and helpful. One of the few motels I've stayed in that had a comfortable sofa for tv watching. Taranaki made a very good impression and the sun was shining every day during the peak season week we were there.

All of the reviews I agree with. What made the stay great was the lovely friendly down to earth lady who took time to treat us as welcomed guests. Fitzroy beach is a nice place to retreat to. Walk the board-walk & go to the Festival Of Lights in the summer.

Fitzroy Beach Hotel is located close to the beach, near the New Plymouth Coastal Walkway. We appreciated the free bicycles that were provided to use on the walkway. The room was spacious, clean and modern - a great place to stay.

We enjoyed our recent stay at Fitzroy Beach. The motel is very close to the great coastal walkway and has bikes you can use to explore with. Fitzroy shops are a short walk for any small supplies. More dining options in New Plymouth itself. The General Store café is a great spot for breakfast or coffee approx. 15min walk on the main road into New Plymouth. The motel had everything needed for our short stay and we would happily return.

Great place to stay. A bit of hike into New Plymouth centre for dinner but there are other places to eat close by, eg the Ugly Duck, if you don’t want to get the car out in the evening to go to dinner. Lovely room, clean and enough space to move around without being on top of each other. Clean kitchen area and utensils. Very quiet. 2 minute walk to the sea front and coastal walk way. Used the motels bikes and cycled along to the bridge and then back into town, lovely way to get around and quicker than walking.

Really lovely room, super clean with all the mod cons. Loved the double glazing, the spa bath & the 2nd tv in the bedroom was a bonus too. The, staff were so helpful with suggestions for dinner & breakfast. We would definately stay here again & recommend it highly.
