5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We had a lovely, comfortable stay here. Everything was excellent - clean and tidy accomodation, nothing was too much trouble for the staff and you really can't beat the location. Full marks. We will be back.

This motel is very conveniently placed in the centre of the city. We recently used it during our wedding weekend as we had overseas guests to cater for. Its location allowed us to eliminate the need for rental car transport. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful to accommodate our requests both prior to and during the 5 days of our stay. We would recommend them to anyone needing reasonably priced, clean, spacious and adequately resourced two bedroom units. Many thanks.

Room Tip: Two bedroom units near the back of the complex are ideal for gatherings of friends.

We spent Easter weekend at the Amber Court Motel and just loved it. Gail and Nat were lovely to deal with. We booked a 2brm unit and it had everything we needed as a family (2 adults and 2 kids aged 4 & 6). Our unit was comfortable, well equipt and very clean and tidy. There was an indoor heated pool which entertained the kids no end and anything we needed was within walking distance. I would definately book in there again if we head back to New Plymouth. I also got a recommendation through the motel of a babysitter to use for an evening and they put me onto a lovely lady who the kids liked immediately. Many thanks for a lovely weekend!

This is not the most modern Motel we have stayed in but neither is it the most expensive. In our opinion it is good value for money. The Motel is situated on a very busy road junction and we had one of the units closer to the road but was not disturbed by traffic noise at all. In fact, the beds are so comfortable I had the best nights sleep in ages. The rooms are clean and spacious and is equipped with a very large TV with more channels than you could wish for. We had breakfast of porridge, juice and toast and it was really good and well priced. Add on the very helpful and friendly staff and you have a recipe for a very pleasant stay.

This motel is situated at a busy junction on a one-way system, but I requested a quiet ground floor room and I got what I wanted and had a very peaceful sleep. My room was good sized, immaculate clean and well decorated and well equipped with full size kitchen. The motel has a small swimming pool and a spa pool - so delightful to relax in. There is one restaurant across the road, and others close by, and plenty of fast-food outlets at the junction. If you want to do your own cooking, there are 4 supermarkets close by. And 2 garages too! 10-15mins walk will take you to Pukepura Park, or to the coastal walk. The beaches are further out. Being situated on Highway 3 it is easy access to Stratford and Mount Taranaki. The staff are all very pleasant and helpful and my room was well cleaned. A good choice.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room, they are at the back of the building, but away from the traffic.

The Amber Court is in the centre of New Plymouth and convenient for the supermarkets and restaurants. The unit we stayed in was a good size for a family of 4 with a good kitchen. The onsite indoor swimming pool was a bonus. The owners were very helpful and we enjoyed our stay here. There is quite a bit of road/city noise, but that's unavoidable in the centre of town.

You need to have a "perfect" on the overall rating of this property because that's what it is. The ladies were lovely. We felt like almost part of a family. They were lovely, supporting and just beautiful people all together. The room was gorgeous and comfortable. Easy access to everything (shops, beach etc.) Just perfect. So perfect. We will definitely be staying here next time we come to New Plymouth. We love you!!!!
