Stayed here in advice of friends in New Plymouth. Quiet, older, roomy, clean, and one can tell the owners take pride in their motel. Parking was tight but who cares! Room more then made up for that, as well as the setting. I'll stay here again the next time I'm in kiwiland.

Lovely quiet setting but convenient for New Plymouth and surrounding area. Although an older styIe motel it provided excellent value for money with clean & comfortable facilities that is backed up by good customer service.

This hotel was a bit difficult to find. It's located at the end of small quiet road.

The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and full of amenities even though a liitle old.

Staffs were friendly and helpful.

Stayed one night while in New Plymouth for a funeral. The motel is older but has very clean and comfortable beds. Is in a quiet location. All you need when just wanting somewhere to put your head down for the night. Water was extremely hot. Would stay again if looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful. The fact that it was an older motel was reflected in the price.

We stayed three nights here. This is an older style hotel. We had a suite in the main building next to the reception. We had one spacious bedroom with a double and a single bed. There was a spacious kitchen with a fridge, microwave, oven with stove top, kettle, cutlery, etc. There wasn't a bath tub, but there is a good shower. We found the hotel clean, quite and convenient. The hotel backs onto bush where there is a path connecting to the Coastal Walkway. We would have liked to check the trail out, but didn't have time this visit. Our suite was serviced daily. We will probably stay here next time we visit New Plymouth.

We stayed three nights in this motel. It is an older style but very clean and comfortable and in a very quiet area adjacent to the Te Henui walkway . Our unit was very spacious and loved having a separate bedroom. The kitchenette was reasonable equipped but the addition of a chopping board would be welcome. We would stay there again.

Stayed 4 nights to go to the rugby and have a look at New Plymouth,
While this motel is far from new, care is taken for it to be as clean as possible and rooms are serviced daily. The separate bedroom had a comfortable bed, electric blanket and its own heater. Pillows and bedding were more than adequate.
The kitchen bench was gleaming stainless steel but the cupboards, though well stocked with crockery, cutlery, pots and utensils, were a bit retro to say the least.
Hot water in the shower was plentiful and the plug-in heater did eventually warm the rooms. Leaving windows open to avoid condensation meant it was a little chilly at times.
TV appeared to be mainly Freeview, with Trackside, Shopping Channel and CCTV the only Sky channels, and the channel numbers were not the same as in the folder provided.
Parking was right outside the unit door but turning was difficult, and next to impossible on the Saturday night when all spots were taken.
Timandra St is right opposite Pukekura Park raceway and just off the main road south, but the motel is next to Aotea Reserve, beautifully quiet, and the view of tui in the trees in the morning was appreciated.

Room Tip: Unit 5 was at the far side from the street so could not have been quieter.
