Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here for 3 nights with a group and found this motel to be outstanding. Modern, fresh and spotless rooms with plenty of space and everything at hand. Friendly owners offering great service along with lovely gardens and a yummy breakfast - we enjoyed our stay very much. Would stay again.

I am so surpised that just about all of the group that stayed with us, gave feedback on their stay. We are so grateful for that, what a wonderful group you are. All from different parts of Australia and got on so well. Credit to Peter for doing the cooked breakfasts, he believes too much is better than less. Have a great Christmas and New Year. Jeanette & Peter

We stayed here for two nights after being recommended by our in-laws. For an older property the units are modern, quiet, comfortable beds, full kitchen, free Wi-Fi, and good pressure in the shower all for less than $100/night. We will definitely stay here again next time we are up in Inglewood.

This motel is great value for money, super clean and the proprietors are lovely, giong the extra mile to provide information etc. They even left a Christmas present in our room for us! :-) A bonus for us was that they allowed us to bring our little dog (clean and well-behaved) and this was really appreciated. Many thanks, and happy new year. Liam and Chrissie.

This was my first trip to Taranki, and was complemented by this lovely motel. Tastefully refurbished, spotlessly clean, lovely hot showers. The beds were super comfy and fresh flowers were placed in our rooms.

Motel in super quiet location and the hosts Peter and Jeanette were wonderful. Breakfast was cooked fresh and very filling. Wireless Internet was also provided. A most enjoyable stay. I would most definitely stay here again. We also enjoyed some excellent meals in local restaurants

Really enjoyed my stay at the White Eagle. Jeanette & Peter have done a great job of modernising the motel, and are charming hosts. Set well back from the main road, the rooms are quiet and spotlessly clean. But it is the little touches like flowers in the room, lots of extra pillows and blankets, and attention to decor that make the difference. The bed was so comfortable, and there is everything you could need your stay. Be warned the breakfasts are huge!

We believe all units should be fresh and clean for all our customers. Your comment is very much appreciated. We love the gardens, and at this time, they are looking really pretty with all the roses flowering. Great sunny weather at the moment , which allows us to do the garden and grounds. All the best and once again thankyou very much:). Jeanette & Peter

We travelled to Inglewood for a family wedding in March and we were absolutely wrapped with the service we received from the new owners of White Eagle Motel. They were extremely welcoming and helpful. Our children enjoyed the ample outdoor area, and we had a very comfortable stay in the room which had recently been refurbished. All of our requirements were met and we would definately recommend the Motel to anyone!

The White Eagle is a really nicely presented, homely, well run and maintained motel. It is a little gem that many bigger center budget motel owners could learn a lot from.

It is very well presented, fresh looking and very clean. The rooms are tidy and functional for a family. The hosts are genuine hosts, very friendly, approachable and happy to help.

The motel is located off the main road leading from Inglewood to New Plymouth. It is well back from the road so traffic noise is not a big problem.

I would happily stay there again and recommend it to anyone staying in the Taranaki and wanting good quality, friendliness and good prices.

I stayed here for a conference and was really impressed with both the service and the room. These photos are nothing like the motel currently is, it now looks very modern and is very comfortable. The room was large and very clean and the motel is very quiet. The current owners are very helpful, professional and polite.

Hi there I is now a year since you gave us feedback. I am just letting you know that Trip Advisor allowed me to remove the old photos from the internet (previous owners) and add ours. So thankyou for letting that happen. Hope you had a great New Year. Jeanette & Peter
