When hubby and I checked in we were not told about the pool, where is it. As for the shower screen, rather dangerous, unless you are alert, I grabbed onto it to get in the shower and it swung away from me, yes I am getting old but someone older could have had a nasty accident. No where to put your soap etc, side rails in the shower or a warning about the screen.would be nice. Other than that lovely.

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
Sorry we missed telling you about our pool, private courtyard and BBQ.
The shower door over the bath swings both ways to allow guests to bath or shower however we are working on a solution.
Look forward to seeing you another time if in New Plymouth, happy travels :-)

We stayed for two nights and it was great. very quiet and so clean. The pool was a bit cold. Easy parking and everything was in our room that we could need. They supplied a cot for our 8mo that saved us a lot of hassle. Thanks

Have stayed here before very comfortable. As we are travelling on motorcycles it suits us well as they are safe out of sight and right outside the room. Laundry facilities are good too. A little bit away from the centre of town for walking, but very quiet. Nice for the price

Room Tip: Swimming pool available. If you want to swim ask for a downstairs room that faces the pool then you...

We stayed here a night earlier this week. A very good motel by any standards. Impeccably kept - inside and out. Very tidy and very clean. Good fixtures and fittings. Everything worked well. Quiet and restful in the back rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a back room - the road noise might be louder in the front.

We stayed for two nights with our three children. The motel was so clean! The cleanest place we stayed on our trip. The staff was really friendly and helpful. They gave us a bunch of great recommendations of things to do while we were in town. Great location, great people, great place to stay.
