Stayed 4 nights to go to the rugby and have a look at New Plymouth,
While this motel is far from new, care is taken for it to be as clean as possible and rooms are serviced daily. The separate bedroom had a comfortable bed, electric blanket and its own heater. Pillows and bedding were more than adequate.
The kitchen bench was gleaming stainless steel but the cupboards, though well stocked with crockery, cutlery, pots and utensils, were a bit retro to say the least.
Hot water in the shower was plentiful and the plug-in heater did eventually warm the rooms. Leaving windows open to avoid condensation meant it was a little chilly at times.
TV appeared to be mainly Freeview, with Trackside, Shopping Channel and CCTV the only Sky channels, and the channel numbers were not the same as in the folder provided.
Parking was right outside the unit door but turning was difficult, and next to impossible on the Saturday night when all spots were taken.
Timandra St is right opposite Pukekura Park raceway and just off the main road south, but the motel is next to Aotea Reserve, beautifully quiet, and the view of tui in the trees in the morning was appreciated.More
