Well located in terms of proximity to the city and its attractions, this motel provides good off street parking. Our room was comparatively spacious, clean and tidy, and the bed well made. Have no hesitation in recommending the motel as being good value for the money

Very poor receptionist, her English is limited and she does not acknowledge people waiting. She gave friends of mine the worst room they had, yet she had a better room available? The room has only a few working light bulbs, the interior crowded with many, many beds, very little room to move. Fly spots, dirty mat, a layer of dust,...

This motel has lovely staff. It is close by to all facilities that New Plymouth has to offer. The rates are very affordable and the rooms are comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and we loved the fact that a fan was in the room.
