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

The room was very spacious and comfortable, not to mention peaceful! The staff were all extremely friendly and as helpful as they could be. A perfect place to stay while touring around. I would recommend this to anyone who is after a nice family room and a good nights sleep.

We stayed for three nights, for a short break in the school holidays. The unit was very clean and tidy. We had a 1-bedroom unit with a kitchen and bathroom. Well equipped and comfortable. The motel is easy to find, and very close to major supermarkets and many of the attractions in New Plymouth. We managed to walk to many... More

Stayed overnight on a weekend. Very clean and tidy, just right for our requirements. The room had a kitchen with tea and coffee provided. It had cable TV as well. It's in the middle of town so if you fancy going out for a meal or doing your own cooking it's a short walk/drive to most amenities. Booked directly on... More

I have stayed on the room 32, and it had a very awkward smell. The hot water has ended while I was in the bath. The fan heater is very noisy, so we had to keep it off during the cold night we stayed. On the other hand, the staff was incredibly friendly and made everything to provide us a... More
