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.

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.

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!
