“Basic room in a great location”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

Basic room, definetely no frills. One electric blanket didnt work. But clean and nice lawn for kids to play on and close walking tracks. Unfortunately the tennis court nets werent up and the tennis court non operational. This was a main reason we booked here but couldnt play. Maybe they just have it in Summer?

Lawn tennis is a summer game and the nets are always taken down for the three winter months.

The room is exactly what I need when staying in New Plymouth (I am in New Plymouth twice a year) visiting my daughter (who stays with me at the Motel). The location is very quiet and relaxing.

The Timandra is located back from the main road, thus easy to overlook, however the peace and quiet is a welcome surprise, never before have I slept so well in this town!

I stayed in the "cottage", the decor was nice and the room immaculately clean, it is one of only a few places I have stayed that offer free internet - very handy for arranging the morning appointments.

Not too bad.
Was clean and tiny. Outdated and small but comfortable enough for a stop over for a night.

A small number of units in a garden setting. Bush walks close by for both the energetic and the indolent.
The unit was immaculately presented and very clean. The bedlinen was attractive and comfortable
the kitchen was well equiped for cooking or for heating food.
next time we come to New Plymouth we will look no further for a place to stay

I'm fussy when it comes to staying anywhere. I prefer accommodation which has a bit of character and charm, but I don't like signs of deterioration (god sound like an old grump!) Timandra is set in beautiful grounds, with nature walks just outside the property, yet it's only two? minutes to the centre of town. After a tiring day viewing houses, it was so nice to walk into my cosy temporary home. Fully equipped kitchenette, new sissal carpets, comfy bed with crisp linen sheets, cosy lounge. Free paper delivered early on outside paper hook! marvellous. Breakfast brought to your unit - say no more - great value for money and Pete is a lovely host. Ps they even cater for pets - shows a kind and caring attitude.

Really enjoyed our short stay there. Would definately be back next time we are in New Plymouth. The rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished. The kitchenette was surprisingly well stocked with it's own stove with pots and pans etc. The children enjoyed the garden with the hammock and playground. Our stay was pretty short so we didn't get to make full use of all the facilities. We only went half way on the bushwalk behind the house on the morning we were leaving and would have loved to explore more. It was a truly enjoyable stay. Thanks!
