The property is located close to the CBD however Leach st is now a major 1-way thoroughfare into the city. Accordingly, two issues are apparent - firstly intrusive traffic noise starts from 6am and secondly, given road configurations, it is hard to access the motel by car coming from the CBD at peak hour. The rooms are spacious and clean... More

I forget to ask for her name, the receptionist was extremely cheerful & polite. Spacious room with extra bed. We personally do not like a wash basin with taps that separate cold & hot water, it was difficult to adjust the water use at the cold weather :(

Pleasant and helpful stay. Clean, comfortable facilities. Handy to CBD and major attractions. Despite being close to the road we were not troubled by noise. Good car parking. Range of extra facilities such as pool and games room available.

It may be a bit dated but it was spotlessly clean, comfortable, relaxing and safe. The Amber Court is fairly central and once we parked our car we could walk around the central city. Unfortunately we were only here for a night.

We spent two nights in a two bedroom unit. It was large and comfortable with plenty of amenities. Sharon and Dave were perfect hosts and our unit was well serviced. There is plenty of parking and our room was quiet. The shower was fantastic.

We stayed here for one night on a visit to New Plymouth. The motel is well situated, but has obviously been around for a fair while, as the decor was pretty dated. Having said that, everything we needed was there, and the beds were comfortable and the shower worked well. The unit was near the front so there was a... More

The motel is conveniently located and it's easy to park there. It was clean. The basic rooms were a fair size. The kitchenette was handy. WiFi is very limited but that seems to be the norm in New Zealand at budget accommodations. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Large airy room, nice indoor pool and spar, bathroom a bit old maybe, but better than the hurdle baths common in NZ and other places in the world. I have no complaints. The nice Lady on the desk was helpful with advising where to go and what to do.

Very friendly reception and very helpful re getting around and things to do/see. Units are fine, traffic noise can be very intrusive during the late afternoon / early evening but seemed to die down later so didn't affect sleep. Good location for supermarkets etc. About 10 minutes walk from main restaurant area.

Motel complex was full when I stayed with a group, so it was no use asking for a unit further from the road. I would have given Amber Court a 5 star without this, so if you book ask to be put away from the roadside units. Swimming pool was great to come back to each day. Unit was large,... More
