“Good Value”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

Stayed here 9 nights while my son was attending a yachting regatta. We had a back unit which was very warm and sunny. The units are the old fashioned style with a separate kitchen which was a bonus for a long stay. I found the hosts and their staff excellent. Nice touches such as up to date magazines in the room, and doing my dishes made my stay very comfortable.

Stayed April 2012, traveled with family

Stayed here 5 nights on our visit to New Plymouth and really enjoyed it.Our room was set back so we hd no noise from the main road. Rooms are older style motels but clean,spacious & with full kitchen in ours. The plunge pool was welcome as the afternoons were very warm plus there is also an indoor thermal pool. A short 10 min walk to the harbour where there are several good restaurants and about 20 min walk via coastal walkway into town.
Nice sitting out on the balcony in the evening with a glass of Pinot Noir.

Room Tip: Rooms at the far end of the communal balcony are best as you can sit there without people having to...

Old fashioned, but clean, close to beach, and great for kids. Not too far from downtown New Plymouth, and good restaurants

The flamingo was a little pricy for a not so great hotel. The furniture and linen were clean but old looking. Parking was a little odd to say the least. the staff was friendly and helpful.

This motel is a little in modernised but was clean and welcoming. The hosts were friendly and the breakfast was fair. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the free paper delivered to the door was a welcome touch as were the tourist info sheets
