Great central location. Walking distance to bars, restaurants and shops. 5 min walk to the beach. Modern accomodation, friendly, clean and tidy. Walking or bike trails along the foreshore is a great asset for the naki tourist.

Always value for money is the Abode in New Plymouth. When compared to other motels in the area for the same price per night this one is clean, modern, central and has great facilities. Highly recommended.

This motel is very central. It is down a lane on a one way street so you have to be looking for it or you will end up driving around the block. Once inside the rooms are really lovely. Ours was very spacious and modern. We were able to walk to restaurants for dinner which was great and another plus...

We had 2 nights at this delightful motel. Great hosts who couldn't have been more helpful both with their advice and with their hospitality. The motel is modern, very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Surprisingly quiet despite being adjacent to a major thoroughfare - we weren't disturbed by the traffic noise at all.

We have stayed at this motel before and were happy to return. The location is excellent for most attractions in New Plymouth and its easy to walk to the many restaurants nearby. The new owners are very friendly and welcoming.

We were down for the Boxing and a group of us stayed here, friendly welcome clean and hassle free. Place was spotless, small kitchen if you wanted to cook or re-heat food. Two major supermarkets right across the road and a small lane-way that connects with the main shopping district.

The location of the motel is wonderfully central and it is easy to walk into town and to the waterfront. The road layout of New Plymouth is interest so make sure you study a map to get to this place. It is close to a main road so it is a little noisy but not enough to bother you at...

Stayed here while in New Plymouth for work. Very small room which looks quite nice in the photos but has been done up cheaply. Nothing wrong with the place but it's nothing fancy and is pretty noisy so light sleepers might not enjoy it. Good location in the middle of town.
