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.

Well appointed, comfortable motel on a main road although traffic noise was not a problem. Two supermarkets within walking distance, one just over the road. The staff were extremely helpful and the guest laundry (free) was convenient.

Although NPL sounded quite expensive when searching for accommodation. I must say Abode Motor Inn was worth the bargain. Lovely and quite place, located in CBD with an excellent host! A standard room just had the perfect space, and all the facilities included. We did not think it will have the cooking facilities - but there it was. Ended up... More

Constant road noise, put in disabled unit, smelly dirty shower curtain, even tho booked a 1 bedroom 10 weeks in advance! Owner blamed others, couldn't give a "rats". Curdled milk, photos not representative, certainly not a 4 star, lucky to be a 2!

Enjoyed our stay for a night over easter. The receptionist guy & woman were polite but quite awkward. Not overly friendly but still welcomed us. Room was really good, modern and looked quite new. Had all the mod-cons including aircon. We would stay again but I would like a brighter room. Our room was in the middle where there was... More

The facilities here were great, we had a one bed apartment, and the place was modern and easy to find and convenient to central NP. The only issue we had was with the birds! Whether our windows were open or closed, the sound from outside was the same (bizarre as the windows looked to be double glazed) and the gulls... More

Pros. Central location, quite new, next to supermarkets and fast food outlets. Modern inside, quite clean, a few nice extra touches in the rooms, comfy bed and pillows. Good shower. All in all a good mid range motel room close to town central. Cons. Very noisy street and it is on a one way street too. Booking system is no... More

We rocked up without a booking and Kevin was really helpful at trying to meet our needs with our teenage girls needing some space. Adjoining studios were perfect. Rooms were clean and modern and the location was great as we could walk into town as well as to the light trail at night (amazing event not to be missed!). Would... More
