We stayed here one night and agree with other reviewers that the young couple managing the motels are doing an excellent job. They were friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. The unit had been refurbished and was tastefully decorated and very clean. We would definitely stay here again.

This was up there amongst the best of our accommodation experiences in New Zealand. The owners are friendly and helpful (which we have found surprisingly rare elsewhere in NZ), and judging by the way they conduct their business, obviously really care about the guest's experience. The units themselves are beautiful - modern yet warm. We really felt we could relax and spend time there. There is everything you could possibly need, as well as little thoughtful extras (nice-quality toiletries, bathrobes, good coffee, magazines, etc). And yay for unlimited internet - we got quite grumpy having to pay for this elsewhere. A great bonus was being able to use bikes for free to explore the coastal walkway. It cost us a little more than we paid elsewhere in NZ but was worth it.

The young couple who manage this motel are doing a fantastic job of keeping it clean and comfortable for their guests! The pretty flowers lining the entrance and driveway and the high wooden ceilings of the rooms give the place a nice touch. We stayed for two nights and the location was perfect for our golf game at New Plymouth Golf Course or to walk into the town for dinner. We had a great stay!

Lockwood Motor Inn is very well run motel. It seems to be set up mainly to cater for single night guests. We stayed for 5 nights and found a few minor things wanting. For example while there is a wardrobe with hangers for shirts, etc, there are no drawers or shelves to unpack personal items onto. So we lived out of suitcases. The mini bar in the small fridge, while desirable for a one night stand just took up needed space in the fridge for us.
There was expected noise from the adjacent major road and some noise from adjacent units. Not too much of a bother for us. Other reviews have mentioned 'double glazing'- there wasn't any in our unit.
The WifI works well. The bed was reasonably comfortable.
Any issues were attended to promptly. The motel is a short distance by car from the city area and other attractions.

Room Tip: If you are staying for more than one night or a quiet night is important then discuss it with the managers. I am sure they would take of any concerns.

A Lockwood constructed motel located close to the city centre, Spacious rooms with a kitchenette. Friendly hosts and a modern and clean property. We had a pleasant stay and were able to plan our days activities around the information available at the motel and found it was easy access to the coastal walk and the township of New Plymouth. Loved the timber aspects and high ceilings which gave the feeling of roominess and warm and welcoming.
Would recommend for a taste of kiwi hospitality.
