“Fitzroy Excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2011

Open for only 18 months, the Fitzroy Beach Motel is clean, modern and well equipped; however its best asset is that it is within some 300m from the beach and coastal walkway, so there are many leisure opportunities available without having to use the car. Slightly dearer than some Motels, reflecting its position and demand, it still provides excellent value for money and is rated by my wife as the best Motel we have used in NZ. The main visitor centre for Mt Taranaki is less than 30 minutes away, and provides excellent walks and spectacular views.

A warm and friendly atmosphere throughout our stay. Very accommodating - helpful and understanding. The unit was quiet, spotlessly clean and well thought out. Single bed in lounge very comfortable - a "real" bed not a sofa! Very close to a good range of shops and although we were there when everything was closed down for Stat holidays we would go back again when shops were open. Lovely friendly hosts! Will certainly recommend to all.

stayed for 2 nights just before christmas, made to feel very welcome by Steve and Julie. the rooms were immaculate, sofa comfortable, all decor very good. Additional tv in bedroom to avoid arguments! Wet room spacious (compared to some showers in other motels where you cannot bend over to dry your legs/feet without hitting your head on the wall!). Handy for surfing beach, only 200m away, coastal footpath for quickly getting into town centre. Will heartily recommend this motel to everybody travelling to new Plymouth.
Thanks, Steve and Julie.

My Hubby, friends and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Fitzroy Beach Motel whilst attending a Family function at the nearby Surf Club.
The Motel's units were a delight to stay in! They were roomy, spotless, and very well appointed with all the necessary high quality modern conveniences anyone could wish for.
Our owner/hosts were so friendly, pleasant and very accommodating.
Our only regret was that we were not staying longer, and intend to make up for it next time we are in Taranaki.
Well done Steve and Julie and thank you so much for your obvious efforts and attention to detail!
Linda Joyce.

J & D, Norwich, UK.
We booked in for a couple of nights but were so comfortable we stayed five. The owners Julie and Steve are on site and provide a wonderful service. The one bedroom unit we occupied was superbly appointed and well maintained. With its position well placed between both shops and beach, both closely located, this is an ideal spot to base a vacation in.

We stayed in the one bedroom appartment with a spa bath. The spa bath was divine (mini bubbles and genly relaxing) and the accomodation modern clean and lots of space. One of the best motels I've stayed in. It's close to the beach and 5 minutes walk to a lovely walkway to New Plymouth (about 30 minutes walk along the coast.) The motel is very quiet as its on a side street with no noise. Its also a minute or two from local shops so very handy Really great place ....i'd highly recomend it

A MOTEL just off the highway just 2-300 metres from Fitzroy beach and coastal walkway, amenities close by. Very good room, car right outside, very good facilities, friendly and welcoming owners - bikes available. Perfect for relaxing on the beach or walking/cycling the walkway, easy to get into new Plymouth Centre, easily walkable to Fitzroy centre for shops, cafes, restaurants etc. Wider exploring straight along the highways without needing to go through New Plymouth (pretty easy anyway!).
