Unfortunately we could only stay for a night but would have loved to have stayed longer. Found this motel to be in a handy location, nice and quiet, and clean. All we could have wished for for the very reasonable price. Thank you.

I would usually use Expedia for all my accomodation requirement when travelling. I booked a room in this motel at a great special rate of $99 per night. To my surprise, we stayed in a refurbished room and it was great. Great value for my $$$$. Great customer service from the owner too. Close to township & Pukekura Park.

We had one of the newly refurbished unit, new coat of paint and modernly furnished. We have 2 adult cats and owner Peter was very accommodating to our needs. Large backyard area for the kids to roam and only 2 min away from bush walk to Te Henui stream.

The staff were helpful, friendly and were even able to supply us with some scissors for cutting off labels. Peaceful with own little deck area for relaxing looking out on the green amongst the greenery Would stay here again, amenities were great for my mum who has difficulties getting in and out of showers n toilets = handrails galore, yay...

Motel is an older property, so it comes with a few quaint details, but all in all a great place to stay. On arrival you're handed an internet slip that says excessive use will incur a charge and that it's monitored. Would be helpful to know what 'excessive' is (everyone's opinion will be different) or perhaps a limited amount of...

Timandra was a great find. we stayed in the stand alone cottage…all was clean and it was so wonderful to just stop after a full day of travel, roast a chicken, catch up on email and watch some telly…then sleep in the comfy bed in the peaceful area. Bird song in the morning…a wonderful place to visit.

This motel is quiet (a hard thing to find in New Plymouth) but that's about all it has going for it. The decor is very tired and it wasn't overly clean. It was at the cheaper end of the scale though so I guess you get what you pay for.

We were very disappointed at the "rules " of the manager running this motel. We had booked 4 adults for 5 nights but needed to cancel the last night which we advised when checking in. It had never been disclosed to us because it was holiday time 28 days notice was required. In the information in the unit it stated...
