“Great motel”
Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

Well run, well situated, well appointed and best of all scrupulously clean. Comfy beds, Sky TV, free wifi and even an umbrella in every room should you find Taranaki's famous rain. New Plymouth is a choice little town and this is a great little motel.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

Cosy, clean, spacious room with nice interior decor. Great little kitchenette with good cooking facilities. Guests can borrow bikes free of charge to go cycling which is a good thing to do. Hosts are very welcoming and friendly.

Nice little hotel right off the freeway. Lockwood rooms were very clean and has everything you need for a short stay in Taranaki, including French press coffee, a mini- fridge and even snacks available for purchase in the room. This hotel was recently updated and very comfortable. I give it 5 stars because it met our expectations, not because it’s a 5 star hotel. My only advice is to give them a heads up if you are going to have a late arrival, as we had to wake up the manager to get our key and she had to answer the door in her P.J’s.

Thank-you for your review, very pleased to see that you thought our rooms were good value. Thanks also for a great tip if you are arriving late its good to know, as we do have a lock box for your key ....( then you won't catch me sleeping :)) . Our office closes a 9pm on weekdays and 8pm at the weekends. Its also great to leave a mobile number if possible also. Thanks again.

Luckily for us stumbled upon Lockwood Manor. Stayed in a studio unit which was inviting, clean and comfortable, offset with modern furniture. Didn't feel like a motel room. Mocconna coffee sachets (yaye), well-stocked kitchen with fridge big enough to accommodate our food and drinks. Generous fluffy towels and nice robes. Great attention to detail. Parking convenient right outside unit.

It was a last minute booking to visit Taranaki and arrived to find Kelly-Anne on reception and David mowing the lawns.
Both are very proud of their property and it shows in the attention to those small details.
Very helpful with suggestions of where to eat,things to do and offered Free Wifi without asking :) nothing was too much trouble.
The rooms are very modern, cosy and clean and the staff are friendly....What more could you want?

Would recommend Lockwood Manor to anyone.
