I stay at the Amber Court Motel on a regular basis as I travel for work. It is a great motel and I always enjoy my stays. The rooms are big, plus clean and tidy. Each room I've stayed in there have really good showers, kitchen facilities are excellent, the bed is comfy, channels available on TV is great - overall its fantastic.
The motel is located in an good spot - its near supermarkets, petrol stations, and is not too far to walk into town to the shops and restaurants.
Its great to be able to stay somewhere comfortable and relaxing when having to travel alot for work.
The hosts Carolyn and Sandy are fabulous!!!! Always nice, very helpfull and make everyone feel special and welcome.

During a recent visit to New Plymouth we were very happy with our stay at Amber Court. Carolyn and Sandy are the best hosts you could wish for; nothing was too much trouble and you could tell they were passionate and not just doing a job. Rooms are spacious and clean and close to the city centre.

I stayed in the Amber Court Motel during the week of Ireland's Rugby World Cup game against the USA and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this motel. I work as a sports journalist back in Ireland, and after a hard day it was great to come back to my comfortable, modern unit. The room had everything: big comfortable bed, kitchen with full facilities, a clean new bathroom with an excellent shower, cable TV and very reasonable broadband. The owners are always helpful and welcoming. The location is superb as well - just a short stroll into the town centre with plenty of restaurants and two big supermarkets nearby.

We were a group of 2 families - 8 of us in total. Even though we only stayed 1 night, it was a pleasant experience and will definitely recommend this place.

The 2-bedroom apartment was really spacious for our 3 kids. The facilities in the apartment were very well maintained.

The people who run the place were very friendly and helpful, answering to our many questions and letting our son play in the games room even though it was almost closing time. The heated swimming pool was also a delight especially for our 8-year old boy.

Definitely recommend this place especially if you have young children.
