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.

Such a wonderful place to stay! We stayed for 4 nights in a Studio Room which was plenty big enough for 1 adult and 2 children. The rooms were very clean and tidy and the daily housekeeping was a wonderful treat! The beds were very comfortable and we appreciated the air conditioning to help us sleep. The two swimming pools, games room and outdoor areas were enjoyed by both children and adults and after 3 busy days competing at the Colgate Games we loved having somewhere so relaxing to chill out and relax at. Thank you so much for your hospitality and a big shout out to the cleaning staff who keep the rooms so fresh and clean. Definitely a 'resort style' facility that we highly recommend! Thanks again for the relaxing stay!

Just hand another trip to Taranaki, and was lucky enough to stay at the Flamingo Motel again.
This amazing motel really does tick all the boxes.
Its peaceful with great amenities. There are two swimming pools, one solar heated and one indoor pool gas heated to 38 degrees, OMG its soooo relaxing.
There is a pool table and ping pong table in the games room. Outdoor play equipment for the kids, BBQ, car washing area, and to top it off, the rooms are great with full kitchens and comfy beds, also Sky TV. What more could you ask for?
The owner is lovely too. Taranaki is a wonderful place, there are so many things to do. So if you are lucky enough to visit New Plymouth, I can confidently recommend Flamingo Motel.

We stayed here four four nights during the recent Taranaki Garden Festival. Tony and Maree are friendly and helpful hosts. The unit was exceptionally clean and very comfortable. Unfortunately we didn't have time (or appropriate weather!) to use the pools.

The unit we stayed in was very clean and tidy with sky TV and complimentary chocolate fish! The beds were very comfortable along with the pillows. Tony was very helpful and friendly, taking the time to give us directions on where to go for the concert we attended. Highly recommend. Very good value for money!

Stayed at the flamingo while visiting family and having a holiday. Found this motel lovely and clean. Very handy to town and general exploring new plymouth. The owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Family friendly, lovely pool and area for kids to play.

We stayed in the two bedroom family unit. Wonderful hosts. Large space, sparkly clean, warm and comfortable beds. Fantastic value. We enjoyed the Sky channels. Short drive to town. 800 m to local pub. Would stay again.

My wife and I, along with our 2 grandkids recently spent 2 nights at this Motel. We had a 2 bedroom unit. Everything was excellent for us. The unit was very big and spacious. Every necessary amenity was available. The unit was very clean and the beds very comfortable. The grandkids loved the indoor hot pool and trampoline. The location of the Motel is very good, just a 3 minute drive (20 min walk) into the city centre. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were provided with 2gb of free internet. One of the grandkids left a library book behind and while travelling home we received a phone call from Tony ( manager or owner?) informing us of this. He returned the book to us by courier at no cost to us. To me that tells you how this Motel is managed and there would be very few motels who would do this for you. Would highly recommend this Motel.

We were all (four of us) very disappointed in our recent stay at the Flamingo. It did not deliver on most of the facts on their website, which quoted "quiet, comfortable, refurbished, modern fittings". Our unit was very close to the main road enroute to the Surf Highway so was extremely noisy; was dark and dingy, had no "modern fittings" and had not been refurbished for many years - the carpet was stained, needed cleaning and there was a musty odour on entry.
The owners were lovely people but this wasn't enough to make our stay enjoyable or one we would repeat.
