Well run, well situated, well appointed and best of all scrupulously clean. Comfy beds, Sky TV, free wifi and even an umbrella in every room should you find Taranaki's famous rain. New Plymouth is a choice little town and this is a great little motel.

Cosy, clean, spacious room with nice interior decor. Great little kitchenette with good cooking facilities. Guests can borrow bikes free of charge to go cycling which is a good thing to do. Hosts are very welcoming and friendly.

Nice little hotel right off the freeway. Lockwood rooms were very clean and has everything you need for a short stay in Taranaki, including French press coffee, a mini- fridge and even snacks available for purchase in the room. This hotel was recently updated and very comfortable. I give it 5 stars because it met our expectations, not because it’s...

Luckily for us stumbled upon Lockwood Manor. Stayed in a studio unit which was inviting, clean and comfortable, offset with modern furniture. Didn't feel like a motel room. Mocconna coffee sachets (yaye), well-stocked kitchen with fridge big enough to accommodate our food and drinks. Generous fluffy towels and nice robes. Great attention to detail. Parking convenient right outside unit.

It was a last minute booking to visit Taranaki and arrived to find Kelly-Anne on reception and David mowing the lawns. Both are very proud of their property and it shows in the attention to those small details. Very helpful with suggestions of where to eat,things to do and offered Free Wifi without asking :) nothing was too much trouble....

Last minute booking, got there late and was welcomed by a large cat doubling as the security guard at reception. Pleasant service, free Internet offered without being asked. Room was very modern and spotless. Everything there I needed. Only issue was heat pump didn't seem powerful enough for room. Cooked breakfast served on time the next morning.
