very comfortable and quiet as the unit was at the rear of the complex. Friendly and helpful hosts. Shared unit with brother and sister--and there was plenty of room in the 2 bedroom unit. As we don't have Sky TV at home very much enjoyed watching some of the Olympics as they happened

I had an unexpected stay in New Plymouth and was very lucky to find the Flamingo Motel because not only was the room ultra comfortable, warm and spotlessly clean, the hosts, were really friendly, helpful and caring. They accommodated me despite me being unsure of how long my stay would be, which was fantastic and meant I had one less... More

The motel itself looks old-fashioned. Neon sigh in the night is slightly dark so possible you miss the sign. But The room we stayed was so comfortable and seems to be renewed. No smell, nicely clean and tidy. No charge for tiny dog and the owner is also dog-friendly guy. The owner recommended to use a indoor warm pool but... More

We booked last minute as decided late in the week to have a weekend away and will be back to stay at Flamingo when we next visit New Plymouth. Great location and Tony and Maree are super friendly and helpful hosts. Our room was large and very clean and we particularly enjoyed a surprise chocolate fish on arrival. Next time... More

We stayed one night at the Flamingo Motel. The staff were very accommodating to myself and my family, the children remained entertained by the variety of amenities provided. Definitely recommend this motel to everyone travelling through New Plymouth.

We stayed here over Easter for 4 nights. We chose it because it had quite a high rating and some of the great reviews. One of the comments was that it was clean and this was so true, spotless and our units looked like the kitchen had brand new appliances. Liked the fact they supplied pool towels and an extra...

We planned on one night ending up staying two. Just as reviews said the room was so clean with really comfortable beds. Our daughter loved the indoor pool and trampoline. Outdoor pool would be awesome in warmer months. Hosts kindly stored our bikes away for us overnight. Would definitely return. Thanks!

Really good value for money. The rooms are basic but very comfy, very very very clean, have sky TV and some rooms have sea view. The playground is good fun for the kids.
