We stayed here for 1 night in the 1 Bedroom motel unit. The room was clean, modern and spacious with a separate lounge area. The kitchenette was modern with a stovetop. The motel is a few metres from the beach and the beautiful Coastal Walkway which is suitable for walking or running. The area is nice and quiet. Great staff.

Perfect location for ease of access in and out of New Plymouth and surrounding area. In town for 3 days on business and really noticed the traffic issues in New Plymouth due to poor road planning. This motel located in Fitzroy was a way more convenient location than the down town options. Also nice breakfast options provided. Will definitely stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review for our motel. Yes we are very lucky to be situated on a very quiet street just off the main CBD of New Plymouth. Yes at times the traffic can be very busy on our main route into New Plymouth however we have just heard work will start at the end of this year to rectify our traffic congestion at the northern end of New Plymouth. We look forward to seeing you again when you next visit New Plymouth. Regards Dianne

This is a new or refurbished motel. It is a couple of hundred yards to the beach. It is maybe 1 1/2 miles to a grocery store in New Plymouth. The kitchen area has 2 cooktop electric burners, microwave, and refrigerator. They give you a fairly liberal allowance for Wi-Fi, but we used it up by using the internet for more than an hour per day. It costs $2 to use the washer and $2 for the dryer; they only have one of each so they may not be available. We were awakened early in the morning by a garbage truck or some other type of noisy truck.

The location of this motel is ideal for Fitzroy beach but it is almost 2 miles from the centre of New Plymouth. If you do not want to drive then the Coastal Walkway provides a pleasant way to get into town or a taxi costs about NZD 13.

We had a Deluxe One Bedroom Unit which consisted of a reasonable size bedroom and large living areas and bathroom. In general it was well equipped and furnished and unusually there was a full size oven (as well as microwave and hob). In the bedroom there was a large wardrobe but only two small bedside units for other clothes etc. The shower was above the bath with a shower curtain.

The only outside space was looking into the carpark and the views from all our windows were either the car park or fences.

For the price we thought this was very good value.

If one reason you are visiting New Plymouth is to go to art galleries be warned that the (reportedly excellent) Govett-Brewster Gallery is closed for rebuilding until some time in 2015 and the Real Tart Gallery is closed on Mondays.

An excellent place to stay, five minutes' walk from the beach and five minutes by car from town. We had a one-bedroom suite with very comfortable lounge/kitchenette. The kitchenette had hotplates, microwave and kettle as well as sufficient cutlery, crockery and pans. You would think twice about trying to do any extensive cooking, but everything needed for preparing simple snacks or for eating and heating takeaways was available. Excellent quality of consumables supplied - tea, coffee, milk, etc. - and spotless rooms.
Very friendly and obliging owners/managers, and a bonus was the availability of quite reasonable, geared bicycles, free of charge, which we used for exploring the waterside walk/bikeway. The only minor criticisms I have relate to the design of the suite we were in, which had a bathroom with a curtained shower in the centre, ensuring that the whole bathroom floor became wet after a shower. This was a minor blot on an otherwise highly enjoyable stay.
