This motel doesn't just clean their rooms - They polish them from top to bottom! The Kitchen sink looked like I was the first person ever to use it and the shower and toilet looked the same. I've never been in a place that feels so clean and shiny. Take your swim-suit because they have a pool and a spa,...

We were looking for an affordable place to stay on a quick trip to New Plymouth to climb Mt Taranaki. Reviews through Booking.com were very good for Flamingos so I thought why not. We were not disappointed! Although the complex is a bit dated, all the facilities were great, rooms very clean and had everything we needed. But what really...

Very clean, our studio was huge with everything you could need including a full kitchen. Friendly staff made me feel at home, plenty to do for my young daughter. The chocolate fish topped it off. We hope to stay there again.

Easy to located & straightforward check in. We were in unit 14 which was at the back so it was nice and quiet away from the road but as it was against high vegetation was dark in the kitchen. Good views to front. Interior a bit dated but very clean; meagre internet allowance of 500mb and parking a bit tight.

Here you have a very pleasant Motel with the friendliest most helpful owners Centrally located pleasant tidy rooms, but to fall into that pool after the cycle challenge was just devine!! We were concerned about a party at the pool going on late but by 10pm they were quiet and we all slept well

Loved our room, big, spacious, comfortable. The playground was right outside, my son even played on it in the rain. Added bonus was the tabby cat that roamed around the rooms, it even slept on our bed overnight:) We will be back, as we went down to see the mountain, she kept herself hidden unfortunately!!

We stayed here for 3 nights in one of the 2 bedroom units. As has been mentioned in other reviews, this place is super clean! We cooked more than we ate out. Everything we needed was in the very well set out kitchen. The equipment was all like new! Rooms are serviced daily & the cleaning crew were really lovely...
