“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Hi,
My sister and I stayed here for 1 night at the beginning of Feb, absolutely loved it, room was clean, tidy and comfortably, had everything we needed, very close to TSB Stadium which is why we were there.
We also had the cooked breakfast which was lovely and more than enough, pool was very inviting.
Manager Gail couldn't do enough for us, lovely lovely couple who run this Motel, definitely recommend it and will stay again if we come back to New Plymouth - definitely value for money..

Thank you for a lovely stay...
The GC girl :-)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Value for money hotel, based in central New Plymouth, close to eateries and shops. We had a 2 bedroom unit which was spotlessly clean and very spacious. The kids LOVED the pool which was great as it was indoors and we arrived when it was a very rainy day. My only comment would be quite noisy at night being on a main road and at a busy intersection, and also early in the morning a house being built next door woke us up quite early with power tools. Would definately stay here again though if the chance arose.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

As stated by other travellers this motel is value for money. Spacious units, clean and reasonably serviced during our stay. However, the bed maker was slack about making the bed - just pulled up the covers - bottom sheet not straightened and some of us are fussy about that!

Had to ask for an extra towel because women will often want an extra towel when washing their hair. My main concern was that although our unit could sleep 4 there was only lounge seating for 3 and it was hideously uncomfortable. A hard vinyl 2 seater and one cane chair. It seems to be a fault in many motels that the chairs to sit on are cheap and uncomfortable. Spoils a good stay. On the other hand there were a huge number of TV channels - very good for some but confirmed why I don't have Sky at home - nothing to watch. Not the moteliers fault. I did not find the reception staff particularly welcoming.

Room Tip: Some may find the proximity to a main road a noise factor but it was of no concern to us.

Amber Court was a great motel - perfect for a short or long stay - very well sized rooms. Pool and spa pool were great as were the staff. Highly recommend this motel to all. Our motel room comfortable slept 6 people and could have accommodated two more.

Room Tip: Rooms near pool are quieter

I've stayed here a few times after a long trip on the road and never been disappointed.
The rooms are spacious and very clean with excellent facilities.
The kitchens are well set out, TV and Sky both very good for relaxing and the rooms are spacious and very comfortable.
Lovely people, friendly and helpful.
Close to town and the supermarket is just across the road, I prefer to cook my own meals when away so this is ideal.
My first choice when passing through New Plymouth.

Despite being an older motel this place is clean, well maintained, has polite helpful staff and is located close to town. Everything you look for in well priced accommodation is here. Just walking distance to town and minutes to restaurants and supermarkets. Room was very clean, nicely furnished and I like the separate kitchen which can be closed off to make the room quiet and sheltered from road noise at night. Has it's own sky decoder with sports and movies and the hot pools are lovely. A great older motel.

I was a long stay from April 15th thru to July 19th. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Gail, Kelvin and Nathalie are awesome people and made me feel part of the family, even inviting me to have dinner a few beers and to watch the rugby with them. I even got my room switched to one with a bigger bed and larger shower (I highly recommend room 57). Clean rooms with efficient and friendly cleaners. Well equipped kitchens and close enough to the city to walk to a number of restaurants, although Gail does a wicked bacon and egg breakfast. Excellent, cant wait to come back to stay.

Room Tip: Herbert Heights Rooms are nice and quiet away from any road noise
