“Great service, comfortable, but very noisy”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We stayed in rooms 1 and 2. From both you could hear the traffic and pedestrian noise. Traffic noise died down in time for the drunks to walk past on Fri and Sat night. A real shame as the owners were wonderful and very helpful.

Spent two nights here on a work trip. The motor inn is great, the decor is up to date, the wifi is free (you just need to enquire at reception), it's roomy and comfortable, and above all it is immaculate. They cleaned it from top to bottom each day. The staff were friendly enough also. Overall, I think it's great value, great location and would recommend the place to anybody.

Thanks for a clean and fresh space to unwind after work.

Room Tip: bottom floor rooms have spa baths

We recently stayed for one night. The room was very clean and tidy but in living area all lightbulbs bar one have been taken out making it very dim especially in the morning in the kitchette area where although a light shade, no bulb in it meant having to open curtains to be able see to make coffee. Reception was friendly.

My first stay here. I was greeted by the new owners and immediately made to feel very welcome. Comfortable rooms. A little bit of traffic noise from around 6am, but not excessive for a main road. My only complaint was the cleaner letting herself in at 9am. (She was very apologetic and explained that she was still learning.) The only reason it made me cranky was because the same thing had happened at a different motel the day before!

We arrived late last night and were accommodated with a special rate as well. The owners have only had it for 7 weeks but they're doing well so far!

Possibly one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in here in new Zealand. The bath is big and comfortable and the whole suite was clean and tidy. There was plenty of storage space and good lighting.

We would definitely stay again whenever we visit new Plymouth and you should too.

I stayed one night here whilst I was in New Plymouth on business. The room was very nice with a crisp, modern feel and a friendly welcome at reception.
Bed was comfortable, everything worked as it should and it was just a short stroll to the sea and also to shops and town.
I had breakfast there in the morning and to be honest felt that it did not live up to the price tag but there are plenty of other options close by if you are fussy like me.
Overall a very comfortable and welcoming place to stay.

We stayed in a room which had rfecently been converted to suit wheelchairs, with a large accessible bathroom. Despite this effort there was a strange lip at the front door which I imagine would be a problem for wheels, and the microwave oven was quite high and would be out of reach. Rooms fairly bland, but functional. Gary and his partner were friendy and were very helpful when we left something behind - he contacted us immediately and went out of his way to mail it to us.

Thanks for the review,

I need to point out that the unit is a purpose built from new access unit that meets all the relevant codes, not a recent conversion.

We have had good comments from guests with disabilities that have stayed in this unit.

Good to hear that the returned items arrived safely.
