We came to New Plymouth for a tangi, some of our whānau were coming from Auckland, we came from Wellington. Both families couldn't get there till after 9pm. I rang to inform them we were arriving later than expected, not only were they fine with that, they had the room ready with the heatpump on& milk in the fridge! We...

We stayed here for 1 night in the 1 Bedroom motel unit. The room was clean, modern and spacious with a separate lounge area. The kitchenette was modern with a stovetop. The motel is a few metres from the beach and the beautiful Coastal Walkway which is suitable for walking or running. The area is nice and quiet. Great staff.

Perfect location for ease of access in and out of New Plymouth and surrounding area. In town for 3 days on business and really noticed the traffic issues in New Plymouth due to poor road planning. This motel located in Fitzroy was a way more convenient location than the down town options. Also nice breakfast options provided. Will definitely stay...

Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review for our motel. Yes we are very lucky to be situated on a very quiet street just off the main CBD of New Plymouth. Yes at times the traffic can be very busy on our main route into New Plymouth however we have just heard work will start at...

This is a new or refurbished motel. It is a couple of hundred yards to the beach. It is maybe 1 1/2 miles to a grocery store in New Plymouth. The kitchen area has 2 cooktop electric burners, microwave, and refrigerator. They give you a fairly liberal allowance for Wi-Fi, but we used it up by using the internet for...

The location of this motel is ideal for Fitzroy beach but it is almost 2 miles from the centre of New Plymouth. If you do not want to drive then the Coastal Walkway provides a pleasant way to get into town or a taxi costs about NZD 13. We had a Deluxe One Bedroom Unit which consisted of a reasonable...

An excellent place to stay, five minutes' walk from the beach and five minutes by car from town. We had a one-bedroom suite with very comfortable lounge/kitchenette. The kitchenette had hotplates, microwave and kettle as well as sufficient cutlery, crockery and pans. You would think twice about trying to do any extensive cooking, but everything needed for preparing simple snacks...

Great stay - very good location close (walking distance) to the surf beach. Staff were super helpful and rooms were clean and tidy. The beach side walkway was less than 10 minutes walk away and you can head north or south daily for a great hike.

It wasn't exactly beach weather but the rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed and the motel was quiet. Some distance from the main part of town but a short drive if you have a car. The sliding glass doors reduce the privacy however overall the rooms were of a high standard for motel style accomodation.

Excellent place to stay, it has a very good reputation. Its close to the new coastal walkway. Very close to shopping centre, and walking distance to the city and the beach. Rooms are very clean, well kept, great customer service

Wonderful location , helpful and pleasant management. Neat, clean and very tidy accommodation. We stayed for 4 nights and would do so again. Only problem struck was that their website states "WIFI initial complimentary 100mb per day , 5c per MB thereafter " was actually given only 100mb for the 4 days although they did give me a further 100mb.Website...
